What I’ve been waiting for for a long time has finally come out to make this world a better place. Years ago when Canadian duo Zeds Dead collaborated with Omar Linx, they knew what they were doing. Omar Linx is unbeatable when it comes to rapping over a Dubstep track, especially if that track has been produced by the Dubstep legends Zeds Dead. It seems as their badass tunes were made for the Toronto based rapper. Recently Zeds Dead released their newest EP ‘The Living Dead’ and what was expected, happened. Four sick tracks have been produced to complete this EP. Badass lvl: 100
German native Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize has flown a little under the radar for me in the past few months, but he has obviously been hard at work in the studio. Recently announcing the release of a new album on Rolling Stones, the German producer has given us a little sneak peek of what to expect with his track “What You Want”. Filled with similarities with his 2007 debut LP “Oi Oi Oi” Boys Noize provides us with a flashback of what the early days of modern electro was like, days where the likes of MSTRKRFTwere just starting to gain momentum. “What You Want” blends oldschool scratchy electro with deep thumping basslines, creating a perfect mix of old and new electro.
Alright, now I am convinced that anything can happen in this world. Cypress Hill the Hip Hop Kings, Rusko the Dubstep legend and Mustard Pimp the Electro Gods created one of the most incredible drum and bass tracks I’ve heard. After listening to its badass original, it’s hard to imagine that someone could add so much love for it to get that much… not better, but different.
I don’t think you can compare star DJ Diplo to anyone else. None of his songs or remixes sound even slightly alike. I’m sure there is one the other that might have some similarities, but in the greater picture there is nothing. Don’t believe me? Take Usher’s ‘Climax’ for example. Then come back and listen to this one. If I wouldn’t know of Diplo I would have never assumed that these two tracks were produced by the same DJ. As for his latest release – get ready for some darkness… Hope you’re not scared of Demons
Kaskadejust leaked his beautiful radio edit of Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake’. Be warned, the drop is not what you expect, don’t let the build up fool you! Kaskade is testing out his potential to new genres, meaning the mix is very different than his usual ‘harder’ stuff. It’s really nice to see how DJs try new styles, especially when they only get better!
