Noisia — “Shellshock” (music video)

12 May


Noisia’s album, Split the Atom, was a huge step forward in the drum & bass world. It had a multi-genre aspect seldom seen in projects prior to it, with heavy influences from the electronica and breaks subgenres.

One of the strongest songs on the release was “Shellshock,” with great help from the seasoned drum & bass and dubstep rappers, Foreign Beggars. Here’s the new music video…

Two new huge remixes by Dirtyphonics promoted by UKF

7 May


If you’re new to drum & bass and dubstep as genres, one of the first artists you must check out is Dirtyphonics. They’re known for their hard-hitting drum & bass, and you get absolutely no shortage of that here in their Skrillex remix. I can only imagine how much confidence an artist must have when they attempt to remix Skrillex’s choppy and chaotic tunes…well Dirtyphonics have put their heads together and created one of the best drumstep remixes around. This is likely my favorite remix of Skrillex ever done.

While they have mainly produced drum & bass in the past, they are now starting to make some of the strongest contemporary dubstep around. Just listen to their new remix of Does It Offend You, Yeah’s single, “Wondering.”

Two new music videos for the Drum & Bass giant, Wreckage Machinery

Christopher Wehsner, the Austrian native, has been hard at work for a long time now refining his liquid and cinematic Drum & Bass style. He’s been featured on the very popular UKF Drum & Bass youtube channel and worked on projects with various record labels such as Sinuous, Trust in Music, and Basswerk, just to name a few.

Well, so far this April, he’s had two new music videos be released. One is the dark, urban video for “Paradox.” The other video takes things into outer space with the appropriately named “Cosmos.”

Gemini’s new songs topping the Beatport Drum & Bass charts

13 Apr


Even though Gemini just released his dubstep project, Blue EP, he’s been hard at work doing some drum and bass.

Early this month he released two songs on Beatport, “Without You” and “Destiny.” Currently “Without You” has the #1 spot on the drum and bass charts, while “Destiny” is at #10.

The powerfully thick synth that he’s made famous in tracks like “Blue” and his remix of “Oxygen” translate seamlessly into drum and bass, so you should definitely pick up these new songs.
