James Blake is set to release his new album Overgrown, in a month time, to which we have seen the a preview of the first single Retrograde back in February. Now the British electronic producer is giving us another look at what we can expect with the dub version of ‘Voyeur’.
A simplistic approach to a much deeper production, the track mashes together dance principles with more chaotic layers of noise, all of course with a palpable bassline.
This is a radio rip of BBC Radio 1 Show with Benji B.
Justin Phillips better known as Crywolf has teamed up with New Jersey super star Aylen to create a soothing new dubstep track titled “Silenced Pt. II”. Infused with angelic vocals over a backdrop of strong wobbles and flirtatious synths for a production full of substance. Even as Aylen currently experiments with Trap music, there is a certain delight on our behalf with another dubstep release. Crywolf who has been releasing fantastic remixes, most notably a rendition of Alt-j’s ‘Breezeblocks’ and The Knifes’s ‘You Make Me Like Charity’, are set to make this year even greater under the Always Never Records umbrella.

We’ve been following British folk duo Fossil Collective since their first “Let It Go” EP and now, a year later, we finally have our first taste of their eagerly anticipated debut album, “Tell Where I Lie”.
“Under My Arrest” is the first cut from the album to surface and has certainly been worth waiting for. A sweeping five-minute tapestry of delicately woven instrumentation and soaring harmonies, “Under My Arrest” highlights Fossil Collective’s confidence as songwriters and hints at the album’s potential to soundtrack those hazy summer afternoons.

“Tell Where I Lie” hits record stores on April 8th via Dirty Hit but is available to pre-order now.
An absolutely infections track to start your week comes from none other than melodic master/producer RAC. Reworking ‘Next Year’, off Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club’s second studio album Beacon, RAC lets the vocals shine by removing much of the original instrumentation and sprinkling it with colorful and vivid pop layers of pure bliss. Out of all the RAC remixes we have posted, this is by far one of the best we have heard.

The Dirty Dutch Messiah, Afrojack, has had its fair of controversy his latest original “Air Guitar”, set to be the official anthem of Ultra Music Festival 2013. While it does feature the same uplifting attitude on an Afrojack production, many fans disagree of its dubstep overtones. Which I think it is just misleading because these are not exactly “wobbles”, just motherfucking hard basslines (pardon my Dutch). While they are certainly much more permanent throughout the track, leaving little room the melodic parts to stand out, it is still a massive release and we are just happy to move on past his Gangnam Style remix.

The release date has yet to be confirmed.
