For a while now, Sigma have been my favorite DnB artists for a couple of reasons; one being I don’t know a song by them I don’t like, also they don’t need copious amounts of bass or layered kicks to make a song amazing. Earlier this year they released a remix of Eric Prydz’ Niton. The song is filled with energetic sounds and cool synths. Definitely a song for the summer and yet again Sigma doesn’t cease to amaze me.
This week has been quite stressful, with inconsistent friends and the summer coming to a close I haven’t been in exactly the best state of mind. As I sat in my room tonight thriving off of facebook and seeing what others have been doing with their busy and interesting lives I couldn’t help but have a feeling of slight melancholy. As always, I had my DnB, Dubstep & House playlist going on my iTunes. As I layed there with bass blasting in my ear I wasn’t getting any happier, finally this song came on, Take You There by Chase and Status. As it’s cool and relaxed rhythms went on I couldn’t help but feel eased and slightly more happy. The song has some spacey synths and an overall calming sound. Now this song may be a little older but songs like these are timeless and are worth listening to over and over. So if anyone out there is going through a rough patch this one goes out to you guys and if not make sure to check this one out because it’s a classic.
Sadly as Dubstep gets more and more popular that underground sound has seemed to fade. Luckily people like Benga haven’t quite lost their touch. As I looked for some new music tonight I decided I’d check up on a few artist’s soundclouds, one of them being Benga’s. His latest update to his account was his song Midnight. The song is filled with heavy kicks and very choppy and deep basslines. Above all it isn’t in your face like this new poppy Dubstep is, it’s just a cool song and is definitely worth a listen. Attached to the player is a free download so make sure to grab that as well as check out the rest of his Soundcloud.
Welp, I’m out here in Idaho and sadly internet is scarce so I’m gonna have to make this post quick. Earlier this week I was in seattle with the rest of the Ganjaology family and while I was browsing around on soundcloud I stumbled upon this awesome awesome song, Freak by Drumsound and Bassline Smith. I was instantly hooked and of course there were several remixes up as well, naturally I thought they were worth a listen and I picked the first one I saw by the Bassjackers. The song started out pretty mellow but when the drop occurred I was blown away. The very deep and glitchy sound of the bass gave the song a very unique sound that I haven’t really heard that much. I definitely recommend both of these songs and make sure to check out more of Drumsound and Bassline Smith because they have so many unforgettable tunes as well as this one. Sadly I have to go… so here’s the download for the Bassjackers Remix but I can’t find one for the original, you will just have to buy it. LISTEN UP!!
