"The Scientist" (Original Mix) - Flux Pavilion 

How am I supposed to summon the right words to describe how amazing Flux Pavilion's new music is? Today he treated us all with another song "The Scientist" off his highly anticipated new EP Blow the Roof. Expect nothing less than bass perfection and fitting lyrics for the extremely eager EDM community awaiting the U.S. release on the 29th. I know I already grabbed my pre-order for Blow the Roof and you should definitely do the same. All I have to say for now is press play, sit back, and soak in the bass until Tuesday. Count down to the Scientist!

Out now on Beatport!

Track of the Day: "Rez" (Bassnectar Remix) - Underworld

If you got a dose of the Nectar over New Year's Weekend, I'm sure you heard this one. Lorin's latest bass surprise gets going with stellar sounds and twinkling glitch before blasting into a jungle drum breakdown. This one reeks his intergalactic style and makes me miss that special night we shared with him at Electric Forest. Bassnectar has a way of taking you along for the ride, even if it's a brutal one. "Rez" grabs you by the hands and whisks you away, it's all about that build that gives way to a straining, deep blow that will have you honey-soaked by the end. I can't wait to partake in some more Dubstep worship at Ultra this March!

Track of the Day: "Diffused" (Music Video) - The Upbeats

Today we have some dark liquid Drum and Bass from The Upbeats, a two man DnB and Dubstep group out of New Zealand. These guys have been getting quite popular in the drum and bass scene, and their exposure through the famed UKF dubstep/dnb channel has proved quite helpful. Their new single features some almost tribal-esque style vocal that are whispered in an ethereal manner throughout the song, setting the scene for a strong melody. Combined with the crisp drum section and the very dark bass behind it all, this song really starts to get addictive after a few listens, as it almost seems to take on a trance feel to it with interweaving rhythmic patterns. I really like this mysterious jungle and breaks take on the liquid style of drum and bass, as the Upbeat's previous releases have been much more abrasive. As a special treat, the video that accompanies this song is one of the coolest graphical creations I have seen in a long time... definitely some very trippy space stuff.

Track of the Day: "What You Gonna Do" - Bar9

The latest masterful bass track from UKF's Dubstep collection kicks off with a deep humming interlude with haunting horns, you'll feel like you're walking on the moon but then you start to lose your balance! Gravity gives way and you can't stop the force no matter how hard you try. Bar9 kicks up the tempo and the pitch and then pushes you back down to the surface with sharp drops that will make you fly and cringe - but it'll feel so good. Get ready for some slapping bass of intergalactic proportions.
