[Dubstep] Introducing Popeska… he’ll melt your ears and blow your brain… twice.

Don’t be fooled by Popeska posing with his cute cuddly cat, he is one sick twisted individual who lures girls with his soft image of a cat loving male, then slams out some utter flith like the MP3’s below… disgusting.

At only 19 years of age, the Alanta dubsptep producer is currently signed to Solfege Records (owned by Liberty) and is still really fresh to the scene. His Soundcloud is a great example of the journey of a young electro-step artist; showing the progression from his early days of deep sub bass sounds to his more recent ripping electro sounds like the ones above. We really hope Popeska will start to gain more notoriety within the EDM scene so support him by ‘liking’ and ‘following’ him on the links below:

Right – I need to go buy a cat…..

[9 Monster Tunes!] January Electro Dojo

Has anyone else noticed that December was a pretty awesome time for electro?! We missed a few gems and found a few more this week for you to slam into your party playlist so here goes.



What a huge 4 weeks for French producer Brodinski. Hovering between the lines of electro, techno, house and minimal, the past 2 months have seen some of the best sounding originals and remixes come out of the producer. Quickly becoming one of the most respected DJ’s in the industry, Brodinski stated his career on the Erol Alkan forums – a well known hot bed for any upcoming DJ’s. The following tracks are fresh tunes that really got me going:

[Click Electro] Valerna & Jen Lasher- Listen

Presenting a sweeeeeeet gift to their fans, American duo Valerna along with fellow LA girl Jen Lasher have created ‘Listen’ with one thing in mind – big bass and simple construction. At 30seconds, you gotta have good pair of headphones to even hear any sound the bass is so low! Regulars at LA club Avalon – Brett Sorrentino and RJ Buchananare are always hustling the west coast so be sure to party hard with them if your in the area!

[Punchy Minimal] The Dø – Too Insistent (Trentemøller Remix)

trentemoller remix the do

A real expansive remix of ‘Too Insistent’  from Danish producer Anders Trentemøller, flipping the switch at around 1min50 into what I’ve cleverly called ‘Punchy Minimal‘. The remix comes off a double LP of remixes released by Trentemøller and was pulled off The Dø‘s pretty sweet last album ‘Both Ways Open Jaws’.

[Chilled Electro] Yelle – Comme Un Enfant (Viceroy Remix)

Lead singer Julie Budet of Yelle has such an sweet sounding voice that I find myself playng their tracks repeatedly and loving it more and more.

The French 3 peice pushed ‘ Comme Un Enfant’ out for a remix competition which sent Viceroy deep into the funk coated territories of his musical kingdom, fighting off fierce house dragons and a few human eating monkeys along the way [true story]. Amazingly, the San Fransico based producer both survived and conquered his quest – producing one FRESH sounding track for all to enjoy and leaving those pesky dragons tapping their feet and enjoying the tunes. Needless to say – they all lived happily ever after. The End?

No. The monkeys escaped.

[Round Up] BBC Sound of 2012 Award

The UK’s publicly owned BBC have announced the lineup for their choice of who’s going to be big and have full playlist support from them in 2012. Being the most listened to radio station and having huge online and TV presence – this is quite a big deal for the winner.

The lineup is really interesting, from folk to dubstep and also holding some familiar names… [cough] Skrillex [cough]… with others still awaiting the limelight. The rules sate that the winner can’t of had a UK top 20 before November and also they can’t be previously famous – eg. X-factor. Previous winners of the award include Ellie Goulding, Adele, 50cent and Jessie J, all of whom have achieved success with the award helping them along the way. The BBC have only missed the mark a couple of times – little boots & Mika were 2 artists who for me were very over hyped and very over rated.

Who do you think deserves the award?

BBC Sound of 2012


Our Favourite Nominees:


{Bandcamp | Soundcloud}
Formed in Brooklyn in 2010, the five piece group recently landed NME’s top 50 artists of 2011 (no mean feat). Self titling their music as “weird pop” – it’s catchy and leaves you feeling a bit more hip!

Freinds – I’m His Girl

’Im his girl.mp3′

Azealia Banks

{Official | Facebook}
Brutally in your face lyrics, the Harlem girl really made her mark with the track ‘212’. Spawning from the same Manhatten based LaGuardia High School as Al Pacino and Nicki Minaj she’s now signed to XL Records after making appearances on the 1Love video series and Major Lazer EP Lazers Never Die. Having won NME’s coolest person of the year 2011 and also having her next release produced with Florence + The Machine producer Paul Epworth – 2012 is looking bright for miss banks

Azealia Banks – 212 ft. Lazy J

’212 ft. Lazy J.mp3′

Lianne La Havas

{Official | Facebook}
I first saw Lianne on the BBC’s ‘Later with Jools Holland’ and her performance was simple – yet stunning. Think of her like a quieter Janelle Monae and let her voice gently bring some sunshine into your day. The 22 year-old has been making music since she 7 and having previously performed backing vocals for Paloma Faith, she’s seems set to make her own path in the music industry.

Lianne La Havas – Age

’03 Age.mp3′

Dry The River

{Official | Facebook}
Sitting somewhere between Bombay Bicycle Club, Weezer and Metronomy and hotly tipped in 2011’s SXSW festival, Dry The River describe their music as “folky gospel music played by a post-punk band”. Frontman Peter Liddle formed the band in Norway and moved to London in 2010 in set for a huge UK tour in the 2011 spring. Personally I can’t stop playing this song – it’s so bloody epic!

Dry The River – No Rest

’No Rest.mp3′

Flux Pavilion

{Official | Facebook}
For me, Flux came on the scene with his DJ Fresh remix waaaaaay back in 2010 so this nomination is a bit late! His 2011 year was amazing and saw the British producer move from a one off top remix, to world touring DJ – working closely with fellow Circus Records label artists. We like Flux, we like his music. We like his face. We like Flux.

Flux Pavilion & Doctor P – Superbad



{Official | Facebook}
After 5 grammy nominations – Skrillex had a mamouth year in 2011. His evolution of the dubstep sound is still a constant hot topic in the dubstep forums and Skrilex’s sound has the power to both divide and unite wobbling bass fans. Whether you love or hate it, it’s impossible not to be impressed by what the 23 year old producer has managed to achieve with his releases, record label and tour. Personally, I love how Skrillex’s sound just makes people completely go nuts and is unashamedly OTT. This track ‘Cinema’ is still my favourite from the LA producer, so crank it and loose yourself for a moment:

Skrillex – Cinema

’Skrillex – CInema’
