Shortstack in the area


It’s been 10 months since I started Dubstepped it’s been a hell of a lot of fun.  Now for some growth.  I’m ridiculously happy to welcome the addition of a new writer, DJ Shortstack (Heat Promotions) out of Atlanta.  Shortstack brings a second perspective on dubstep and trust me when I say that he’s got some big posts coming up here.  Catch him playing out in the Atlanta area and other spots.

Shortstack recently recorded a set he played at Tuff Tuesdays in Atlanta, this is probably the best introduction I could give:

Filthy Digital – Testimonial LP (Tribute to Mike Honcho)


Out this week on Denver, CO based Filthy Digital is this Testimonial LP featuring intense dubstep cuts from ten producers.  This LP is quite special because as the name implies all the proceeds of the release go to benefit the family of former label exec Mike Honcho who recently passed.  While I never knew Mike by all accounts his presence was central to dubstep in the US and especially Colorado.

To promote this release and the label in general the new heads Dub-A-Tak and Chefugee have started a twitter promotion.  If you retweet the message “Filthy_digital presents:Testimonial LP –OUT NOW http://bit.ly/OOlGD#digitaltunes” (click here to retweet) then you’re entered in a contest to win a free copy of the LP.  It ends this Saturday so get on it!

Big tunes on this one from Rumblejunkie, Caustik, Richie August and many more.  Lovers of the filthy side of dubstep (hence the labelname) from people like Borgore, 16 bit, DZ, Chasing Shadows, and related should get after this asap.

gWorm – Hiphop Meets Wobble Mix


gWorm

gWorm from Dallas Fort Worth brings some southern dubstep flavor with this one in a BIG, wobbly mix featuring a bunch of hiphop & dubstep mashups to start off the set.  All in all most tunes have vocals, many with hiphop influences.  Wobbles are large in this one, you know any mix with Chainsaw Calligraphy in it is serious.  If you dunno about that track listen to this mix and get to know.  Sam Supa and Kozee once had a ‘filth-off’ at the makeout sessions here in San Francisco and the finale was Chainsaw Calligraphy – there’s simply nowhere to go from there.

I’m really feeling this hiphop & dubstep hybrid, but I’ve always been a sucker for the mashups.  Beyond that though the selection on this mix is ace and the mixing is excellent.  Big respect to gWorm, loving this sound.  If you’re feeling this vibe and are interested in similar sounds check out gWorm’s edit of Move If You Wanna and the Totally Unauthorized comp by MRK1 and Chimpo.

NTRLD and Thurgood – Just Dance Remix


NTRLDThis post potentially reveals a dark side of me. I love filthy remixes of Britney Spears (like the 16 Bit remix of Toxic), an all time favorite drum’n'bass bootleg is a remix of Pink – Most Girls, and so on. This tune hits that spot dead on with a killer glitchy dubstep refix of Lady Gaga – Just Dance from NTRLD and Thurgood out of San Francisco. Not sure if this one will see a release for legal reasons but it’s fun nonetheless. As a friend says about music selection sometimes people want gourmet salad with grapefruit, walnuts, and watermelon radishes with a balsalmic reduction, and sometimes you want candy. This is candy.

I should also mention that NTRLD, Thurgood, and more can be seen live on April 13 at Monday Night Dubstep at Underground SF.  Respect.

Antiserum, Bakir, and Dubsworth EP on Dubs Alive


Dubsalive - Click for full artThis EP is the first release on San Francisco based Dubs Alive Records – DAV001. It features Antiserum & Dubsworth on the A, and Bakir & Dubsworth on the AA, if you can even call it that when it’s digital. All three tracks have live instruments played by the performers, which gives this release a unique feel among dubstep.

The first track “Ugly Mon” from Antiserum and Dubsworth is a some bang your head business, a metal stepper complete with guitar riffs courtesy Dubsworth. This tune is definitely on the dirty side for me but I could totally see it going off in a club. Fans of DZ, Distance, 16 Bit, Ripple, Roommate, etc should definitely check this.

Antiserum & Dubsworth – Ugly Mon

The meat of this three-tune sandwich for me is “Pudding Pop.” Liberally applied effects on the trumpet and snares dub this one to outer space and the wobble keeps it bubblin’. Reminds me of Kanka or a more upbeat Rhythm & Sound. This song’s a personal. Rec’d if you like Clouds, Kanka, Radikal Guru, the WAR series, and related. Dubby live trumpet played by Bakir.

Rounding out the EP is “Casus Belly” which is basically a cross between the first two. Dubby effects and Bakir on the clavinet carry you into the tune where you’re met by ravey synths and a four-on-the-floor to take you out. I was curious about the name so I asked Ric (Bakir) about it who told me that it’s a pun on the latin phrase “casus belli” which means the justifications for the starting a war. I don’t think dubstep is going to start any wars soon though, fortunately. Rec’s similar to the first one, though to be honest I’m not sure there is much in this vein. Really original work. Would kill as a transition track between dubstep and bassline.
