BASS: Hot Chip – Look At Where We Are (Major Lazer Remix)

LAZER-STRIKES-BACK-Vol.-1

Back in March, the mighty Major Lazer dropped their remix EP Lazer Strikes Back Vol 1. We’ve been revisiting the EP recently, and re-remembered this absolutely overlooked Hot Chip remix. Diplo and co deliver their trademark wob wob bass, sitting perfectly behind Alexis Taylor’s soothing voice. This is one of the reasons we Love Major Lazer so much – the club bangers are obviously amazing, but it’s these more laid back jams that really set him out from the crowd. Who would have thought that Trap could be so mellow? Fave bit – 3.00 mins in when it breaks down into a Reggae skank.

BASS: A$AP Rocky featuring Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam – Wild For The Night

A$AP Rocky drops his new video for his much hyped collab with Skrillex. The video depicts the two of them as some of City Of God style druglords who are also kind of ninjas as well as rave promoters. Sounds ridiculous, which of course it is, but the tune is a banger and they look like they are having fun so fair dizzle to them.

BASS: DEVolution – Good Love (Mistajam Live Session at Maida Vale)

Original here.

Alesso remix here.

Here’s a slamming version of Devolution’s recent single ‘Good Love’ live on BBC Radio 1’s Mistajam show at the famous Maida Vale stuidios in London.

Many talk about what Dubstep actually is these days. It has certainly come a long way from it’s roots in grimy South London raves. In some ways it has become the new pop beat du jour, just as drum and bass did for a time in the 2000s. Pop? Dubstep? Who cares… this track rules and this version is great. It’s certainly better than the insanely cheesy eurodance official video for the track.

Here’s a great video from the Red Bull Music Academy Hashtags project on the subject of dubstep/post-dubstep/whatever.
