The weekend has come and gone, and now you're deep into your weekly grind. Never fear, Wobble Wednesday is back with more of your favorite face-melting bass drops to help you make the most of your mundane lifestyle. Today I'll be guiding you along through the many variations of bass music that we see these days, new and old. I wanted to turn the Wobble Wednesday feature into more than just a section for today's dubstep, so I decided it was only right to incorporate some drum & bass as well as an oldies section into the weekly feature.
You'll be hearing amazing bass-driven tunes from the softer, chiller side of dubstep to the filthy, grimier side that everybody loves to rage to. I'll also dip into the world of drum & bass as well as add some classic tunes from the 'golden age' of dubstep. All I ask from you guys is to enjoy and download. Once the weekend hits, steal the iPod at the party and throw on these songs. Guarantee it will make the place jump!
Finally the wait is over to listen to the full length version of Skream's remix of "I Stand Alone" by Theophilus London. This track is classic Skream, with the apparent heavy influence of UK bass and garage styles that we have come to recognize. I first heard this on BBC Radio 1 and absolutely could not wait for the official release. The M Machine just released their new album Metropolis Pt. 1 off of the OWSLA label. The whole album is a mix between electro-house and blends of dubstep, I decided to leave you guys with the track "Shadow in the Rose Garden." Be sure to peep Metropolis Pt. 1 in its entirety.
To my delight, and hopefully yours as well, xKore just released a slew of new songs. All of which are as heavy and filthy as usual. Until recently The Killabits have been pretty quiet, this week though we got our hands on a new remix of Mart!n McFly's hip hop tune "Yo!"
This week I have some heavy old school bangers for you guys. Off of the 2009 Heavy Arms EP, Reso kills it with "Beasts in the Basement." This was right around the time artists were beginning to experiment with build ups, drops, and subtle synthy noises familiarized with early tunes by Rusko.
DRUM & BASS
Dub Scout has been a common name here for the past couple weeks. He has recently been pushing an enormous amount of songs, more than even I can keep track of. I've decided to add his drum & bass track "Balance." He uses a very video game-esque synth tune and layers a deep, gritty bass line to contrast. FRNKNSTYN has been pushing out some great tracks as well, I knew I wanted to feature a song by this guy but had some trouble picking just one. I eventually settled with "Around You" which features vocals by Risky.
PatrickReza, the 19 year old dubstep phenom, busted out a huge remix of "I'm Not Yours" by Angus and Julia Stone this week. Every time we get a new Reza track it's a treat, his songs have a softer more melodic take on dubstep that a lot of artists in the industry lack. The boys At Dawn We Rage are best known for their filthy dubstep style, what with being signed to Figure's Doom Music label and all. But with their track "Chill Out, Your Already A Winner," At Dawn We Rage shows that they can wear more than one hat.
