Subatomic Sound @ Dub Mission


Different 140 BPM styles from Sunglasses and M.I. Loki

I’m always trying to explore new sorts of music.  This has always been the most interesting music to me, the leading edge, the new new.  Today I’ve got a couple videos that are totally off in space, not sure what this music even is or if I care to label it something.  These tunes are all near 140bpm, pretty bass heavy and electronic so I thought it’s worth seeing what people think.

First up, coming from Savannah, GA is Sunglasses with the tune “Whiplash.”  The video is really whimsical and definitely makes me chuckle.  This is the first in a new direction for Sunglasses, so if you’re feeling it let them know at their myspace or over at the dubstepforum.

The second tune comes from M.I. Loki out of Sheffield, UK who mutates the Temptations “Just My Imagination” into something completely different.  Again, not even sure what this music is.  It’s like Sean Kingston vs Vex’d.  Really catchy beat on this one, and the video is damn well produced.  Check it out, and hit up M.I. Loki at Myspace or Facebook.


Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 011 01.25.10 on Dubstep.FM

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNFI’m deeply into this show from the 25th, so many new sounds inside it’s almost inappropriate.  New dubs from Swarms, Distal, Hypno, and more, new releases from Pangaea, Baobinga & ID, Mosca, Desto, Mizz Beats, Geiom, Sully, and Heny G among others.  I reviewed the Desto and Mizz Beats releases for the most recent issue of Big Up Magazine, you’re definitely going to want to check that out.  Extremely well done magazine for anyone who’s interested in bass music.

With this episode I’m switching the way you can subscribe to these to make it easier.  This weekly Dubstep.FM show keeps me busy enough that I don’t have time to regularly do the Dubstepped Radio episodes anymore, so I’m going to merge the feed of this with the Radio feed and you can find them both on iTunes at Dubstepped Radio.  Click here to view the new iTunes store podcast page.

This small change will make it easier to subscribe to this show on mobile devices and in iTunes generally.  With this all said, I do still have plans to do features on US/CA producers on Dubstepped Radio episodes which will be proper studio mixes with full art and whatnot, they’ll just appear in the same podcast as the Steppin into Tomorrow episodes.

Bleh, too many words, this is what you really want:
