Dank is definitely no newcomer to EDM, besides being the CEO and founder of Funky Elements Records, Dank without a doubt can be classified as a pioneer of heavy bass music. Known for representing the full spectrum of electronic music, Dank has repeatedly proven that his ability to produce Beatport chart topping tracks shows no distinction from genre to genre. This time around Dank has paired up with vocalist jACQ to produce a fantastic progressive house gem titled “Crystals”. Beginning with a plucking melody which beautifully builds into strident anthemic chords layered with spectacular top-line vocals, this track truly embodies the ideology behind uplifting music. I’ve had this track shamelessly on repeat all week (I’m a sucker for female vocals) so give this tune a listen and if you’re a fan make sure to support Dank on Beatport here. Enjoy.

We’re not going to lie, ninjas. This week was a rough one. It’s always hard to come back to work after so many days of doing whatever you want to do.

So uncork the champ for the champagne showers, lace up your shoes for couch stompin’, and get this party started.

Elliot Berger, formerly known as System, may not be a name you’re familiar with but it’s never too late to become acquainted. Beginning to play the violin at the ripe age of six, Elliot’s extensive knowledge of composition is apparent in each and every one of his productions. His most recent effort, “Hanging On” is an amazing liquid dubstep track that without a doubt emphasizes the inherent beauty of well-developed progressive dubstep. Combining deep wobbles, poignant piano melodies, and Thallie’s hypnotic vocals, this trance-like dubstep track is nothing short of fantastic. Grab this free download and make sure to show Elliot your appreciation on Facebook here!

Mad dubstep scientist and producer Figure is here to lecture us on grey matter. Well not quite as educational as you think it will indeed expand your musical universe. Taking on the work of the alternative hip hop group Deltron 3030 single “Upgrade” from their 2000 self-titled debut album, Figure does just that by enhancing the song for consumption in 2012. He explains
“Deltron 3030 was essential music to me for so long that to have the groups blessing on this remix is more than a honor. Dan The Automator was more than kind enough to send me Del’s studio acapella, and Del gave me the thumbs up on the mix … In short, I am very giddy about this one!
I tried to capture the vibe of the original all while keeping my sound intact. This remix isn’t made for just dj sets… it’s for the people who grew up on this album like I did and still hold that era up on a pedestal.”
A classic case of oldschool turned newschool by the crafty and relentlessly aggressive Indiana producer.

Aside from similarities with the google tablet, we knew nothing about rising producer Nexus, out of Winter Park, Florida. Electronic music has had an explosion around the United States and it is so rewarding to see talent come out of smaller cities, granted the greater Orlando area is by no means small (with EDC making its premiere this year), but as a former resident, I am so proud to see new talent rise. “Ginger Kids” looks to be one of the handful of songs Nexus released this year but it is already out to be his greatest. The 19 year old producer lays a formidable foundation with an exuberant introduction of captivating melodies interlaced with a slow grind of a bass that is unique and fluid, setting him apart from the many dubstep producers trying to do the same.
We had no idea who Nexus was but as of today, and thanks to “Ginger Kids”, we predict a bright future.
Being a Top 25 Club from DJ Mag comes at no surprise as Beta Nightclub has been featuring an amazing array of talent all year, and this weekend is once again no exception.
Being regulars at Beta, we figured we should share their line up with you, in hopes that you’ll come down and rage with us. Also, just like last time, we have arranged for something special.
