Got some brand new kick-assness in electro/dupstep form. Have to start things off with “Danger Zone” an electro-infused moombahton track by Los Angeles natives, gLAdiator. I’m not going to lie, I find most moombahton to be boring and border line annoying but these guys may have figured out the treacherous path to my approval. If any of you are Archer fans (if not, seriously go watch it) this track is for you. The song uses vocal samples from the show that allude to one of its best reoccurring jokes.
The track itself is also pretty damn hot.
Continuing on with more delectable vocal samples is the appropriately named “We Speak American” by No Body. The track is a fidgety treasure trove of activity that uses various 8-bit elements. The song feels like one big crescendo that gets topped off with a sample of Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) from Pulp Fiction: “English Motherfucker, do you speak it!”. lolz
Found an unnamed electro remix of “Too Many Dicks” by Flight of the Conchords. Simple but excellent production and all too relevant social commentary, can’t wait to drop this one at a party.
Boys Noize has been dropping “Lemonade” into his sets for quite a few months now and I have finally been able to secure a high quality version. This collaboration with Erol Alkan (also signed to Boys Noize Records) reminds me of the classic Boys Noize german electro sound and would have fit perfectly on his first album Oi Oi Oi.
Dallask is young producer from Orlando, Florida with some high profile remixes and productions already under his belt.
I’m growing increasingly weary of electro, I feel like it’s too easy to get formulaic once you have an established palette of working sounds (Ahem Dada Life). Can’t really put my finger on what made this track stand out, I think it’s the groove of the track. Some producers just get too carried away with their flourishes and it fragments the track too much. This is the first track I’ve heard from him but you can expect a full post devoted to him later in the future.
And some fun dubstep tracks..
