Finally, after months of anticipation, UK Drum and Bass heavyweights Drumsound and Bassline Smith grace us with their Through The Night EP. The original track is a solid liquid Drum and Bass tune which utilizes delicate vocals from Tom Cain, to develop a unique melodic feel not always present in Drum and Bass. Also, featured on the EP are remixes from Bare Noize, 501, and Horx & P3000. Bare Noize and Horx & P3000 bring their own unique dubstep interpretations to the track, slowing down the original and emphasizing the vocals with aggressive synths and snarling bass. The 501 remix appears to be the most original of the remixes, completely transforming the track from start to finish. 501’s production is immaculate adding fierce wobbles and laser synths to create massive buildups and drops making his rendition a true dubstep banger. None of these tracks are something you want to miss out on so give the EP a listen and make sure to support the artists on Beatport.

Well, Delta Heavy just destroyed this remix. I saw Excision at Identity Festival in Mountain View, Ca. (San Francisco stop) and I have footage of this track being dropped, but there is so much bass you can’t hear anything but distorted noises. Hands down one of the best remixes of any Excision or Downlink song to date, Delta enhances it in all the right ways.

A few weeks back we featured the first installment of SKisM’s The Division Series EP released on Never Say Die Records. The premise behind the project is that over the next six months four individual EPs will be released alongside a twenty-minute mix from SKisM himself which ultimately will all coalesce to create one monstrous EP with four original tracks and a host of remixes from some of the biggest names in the electronic music scene.
Today, SKisM released The Division Series Part 2, which features his new track “Red Heat”. “Red Heat” is a truly unique track with respect to his tune “Killer”, the single from The Division Series Part 1, emphasizing that each EP will represent the different ideas, tempos, and styles of music SKisM produces. The EP also boasts a refreshing drum and bass remix from none other than, TC. The best part of all, SKisM is giving away “Red Heat” as a free download via his Facebook page, so make sure to show this dubstep legend some love and snag your free copy of the release.
Last but not least, make sure to download and listen to the 20-minute mix featured alongside the EP. The mix will seamlessly blend with the mix from the first installment (which can be found here if you missed it the first time) displaying SKisM’s outstanding mixing ability and prowess behind the decks.

After tremendous success with The Cookbook in 2005 Missy Elliott seemingly fell off the face of the planet and hasn’t been heard from since. It’s unfortunate considering the female rapper was a trailblazer in the hip-hop scene and shocked pop radio with hits like “Get Ur Freak On”. Thankfully Skullee swoops in and reminds us of how legendary Missy is but with the addition of heavy, raspy drums. Enjoy!

Los Angeles native, Kill Paris, no stranger to The Music Ninja, is at it again with a fresh new remix of We Bang’s original track “Roof Is On Fire”. Kill Paris pulls out all the stops turning up the heat of the original mix with the addition of crunchy synths and a dark grungy bass line. Turn up your speakers and indulge in your daily dose of wobbles!
Support the artists on Beatport and don’t forget to show Kill Paris some love on Facebook.

Lorin AKA Bassnectar is a genius. The intro for this mix sets the tone for what may be the dirtiest mix I’ve heard from him since I saw him perform for the first time back in San Francisco years ago. This is what Bassnectar had to say about this mix on his Soundcloud:
“Here’s a few insane bangers which I decided to compile for my month long European Vacation! We will be hitting 13 festivals and club shows across nine countries and this is a selection of dirty music which I hope you enjoy when you find yourself in a high-speed chase, or tightrope-walking between skyscrapers in a windy metropolis, or sumo-wrestling someone much larger than you…”
This mix features 3 unreleased bangers, a collab with D.U.S.T. and remixes of tracks from Metrik, Bill Posters & Deckscar. He also features these two remixes that were sent over to us yesterday the first one is Modeselektor and Ninjaman’s track “Weed Wid da Macka”. And the second is a remix of his own track “VaVa Voom” feat. Lupe Fiasco. The transitions in this mix are just flawless each song leading into the next one perfectly. He truly has outdone himself with this one, even featuring some of his older tracks like the Acapella from “Cozza Frenzy” and “Ugly” featuring Amp Live. Please just take 20 minutes out of your day and listen to this one all the way through, you can thank me later. Cheers.

Foreign Beggars have pumping out some fierce rhymes and even filthier collabs. This time teaming up with Trolley Snatcha a hot and heavy banger titled “Lock & Load“. Starting with some hard rhymes then dropping into Trolley Snatcha‘s classic grimey wobbles separated by flawless breaks. After first hearing a clip of this in Trolley Snatcha‘s set in San Francisco a couple weeks ago, this one made my day when it dropped a few days ago. Cheers.
