DUB Nation & New Skrillex
Don’t skip over this post cuz its got the word DUB in it. I haven’t ever been an avid fan of the Dubstep – more of a hater actually. But a few of these jams have really started to sway my previously close-minded view. Everyone knows the DJs that dabble with it, like Bassnectar and Skrillex, but I’ve never given the straight Dub DJs a chance. Flux Pavillion and Zeds Dead (pictured above, respectfully) are crushing it with HEAVY bass-in-your-face remixes like the ones below. I didn’t think it was possible, but I really dig it. Maybe you will too. Seriously, check em out..
#1) Gold Dust (Flux Pavillion Remix) – DJ Fresh
#2) I Cant Stop – Flux Pavillion
Gold Dust is pretty well known but both are essential. I’ve been looping em non stop.
#3) Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix) – Blue Foundation
CRACK. Zeds Dead on a Mega.
#4) Magical World (feat. Nelly Furtado) – Bassnectar
So chill. Dare I say better than his remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” – maybe a stretch.
#5) Hold On (feat. Amber Coffman) (Sub Focus Remix) – Rusko
**The essence of a dope Dub Step track. I’m sure you’ve heard this dropped live. MUST download if you don’t have.**
#6) Just Be Good to Green (feat. Lilly Allen) (Joker Remix) – Professor Green
#7) Reptile – Skrillex
Skrillex at it again. Man’s on a run.
I’ll try to lay off the Dubstep for a while for all you house lovers, but give it a chance!
