Andrew’s Music Monday: Whatever

So I listen to all sorts of shit and don’t particularly think I know much about any of it. Here’s some things I’ve got in the last week (thank you iTunes date added sort function) that I particularly enjoy or think people should listen to. Onward,

Here’s a mix done by the lovely folks at Ego Theives. Since I got into dubstep, I found a lot of their stuff always coming up around the internet, for a good reason, they are providing a lot of good content. This mix isn’t earth shattering but is still good and especially for those who are getting into this new fangled dubstep thing, it’s a good, safe, mix.

Onward,

This video, for so many reasons. Looney showed me this when we were searching for hysterical brostep, and I can’t stop watching it. Also, that first song, Typhoon by Foreign Beggars ft Chasing Shadows, rules. Even more so when those English dudes are wylin’ to new levels of hyphy to it.

Onward,

I love Katy B. End of story. Judge accordingly, but know I don’t care.

Onward,

Magnetic Man ft. Katy B playing Perfect Stranger live on BBC Radio 1. This is amazing. String section, Benga/Skream/Artwork make this nutty. American radio is such horse shit. I steal things off UK radio through the internet because it’s so good. Good job America. Also Katy B looks like enough of a chav that she could shred and roll with the real dudes.

Onward,

I like this song because I won a contest on Roska’s twitter and they sent me this vinyl, signed by Jamie George, JKenzo and Roska. I’m so pumped on it, but don’t have anything that can play vinyl (I don’t know if I lose hipster points, or gain them) so I will frame it and listen to it on YouTube.

Duncan’s Music Monday: Keep Albany Weighty

While just relaxing with the internet, it become infinitely easier to find cool shit. WIth that said I’m going to highlight a few dubstep tracks that are in my opinion good. These tracks may not be real new in terms of their release, but are new to my ears. *Read this with a cockney accent.

Far East Movement – Like a G6 (Dexcell Dubstep Remix) by Dexcell UK

Recently female leads in dubstep songs have become the object of my affection. Almost no matter what track it is, if there is a female lead I will like it substantially more. This remix by Dexcell does a good job at not over emphasizing the wobble. There are so many hyper electro dubstep songs coming out with female leads that when something like this skips along it should be highlighted. THe song treats the chorus differently allowing the dance floor to switch their footstyle and prep for the drop. Overall its just a solid track. Slow and Low right till the end.

The Glitch Mob-Drive It Like You Stole It-(GladKill Remix) by Gladkill

Glitchy dubstep when well executed is always very well received by my ears. This track has a nice low booming bass line and a fairly clean easy to follow progression of tone. Just a nice relaxed jingle.

Chase & Status – Blind Faith (ft. Liam Bailey) by ALXRSE

This track just speaks for itself. Its just massive and the builds in it are real top notch. Just big and full figured. MASSIVE CHUNE.

Lunice – Fancy Forty (Rustie Remix) by frankyboy

Rustie is what I would consider a power producer. He uses leading synth parts to really drive the track along. What I like the most is the simplicity that his songs have in their construction. It reminds me of 00-04 popular rap tracks but in a more refined way. He hits it out of the park with this catchy remix.
