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!
Wobble Wednesday is a very special one this week. We get the first glimpse into the new track by Earmilk's own Croydon. With the seapunk inspired synths and heavy bass, theirs no part of this remix of "Totoro" that I can say I don't like. CRNKN has been up to something exciting, if you have been up to date with his tracks you already know. People are beginning to shine more light onto trap music, and the dubstep world is not ignoring it either. This Ace Hood remix is only one of a handful of trapstep remixes he's done, all of which are proper.
Any remix of Sander Van Doorn is sure to catch the eye of thousands of adoring fans, and this one by Charity Strike is definitely a must listen. Every song by these guys has just a little different flavor to it, showing off impressive skills and it's not bad when you've only formulated in roughly a month. The new SkisM remix hits hard. This remix of Muffler's "Calling Your Name" is not for the faint of heart, the screeching synths blast through your speakers like a thunderstorm straight into your brain.
This week's oldies section is somewhat relevant to the entire Earmilk community. We are all huge fans of Joker and I felt the need to supply everyone with a tune by the Space Boy himself. The Benga track is off Tempa Vol. 6, and still fairly current being released only in 2010. This keeps the old school feel with a little new school flavor. Listen to it, and try not to get the lyrics stuck in your head. It's an impossible feat.
DRUM & BASS
There is an eclectic round of DnB tunes this week. Noisia released their new Imperial EP. Four brand new songs by Noisia is always fine by me. The one I settled with featuring is their collaboration with producer Phace. Without going into it myself, here's what Noisia had to say about the track:
Phace came out to Groningen again, as he tends to do, to do music. We started this one without working on the main groove first, Florian had brought this awesome chord progrssion. We made the intro and progression from it, which is quite different musically from our normal stuff. Then we went a bit theatrical with the music, i guess we kind of suprised ourselves with the intensity of the drop. But it was refreshing to do. And it´s been going down rather well in our sets..
I've got a slew of new chilled out tracks for all of you. A couple lovestep tracks, the Mclean remix might actually make me lose any bit of manhood I have left. R&B and heavy on the bass, make for a good little tune. When it comes to a new Sound Remedy track, I'm so sure that I'm going to love it that I normally download it without even listening. Of course I eventually did listen to it, and was right about loving it; I feel like I'm in an intergalactic apple commercial.
10 Things That Arent Skrillex
Per special request by Croydon, after reading a recent Facebook status from dubstepper Jakes, aka father of the HENCH crew, that went along the lines of...
"If I hear another Skrillex wannabe I'm gonna do my rag. Your ALL fake fucking clones. If you sound even remotely like him don't send me anything. He's done his style.... Leave him to it. Move on, be original or fuck off...!!!!"
Make sure to keep an eye out for the creepy black man stare at the end. Enjoy!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z1RRslsFxA&feature=youtu.be
