Bassclash Records has become a go-to label for young, up and coming producers with their fresh take on the old dubstep formula. The latest release, coming out May 7th on Beatport and many other stores, is from Germany’s Bukez Finezt. Featured on the Dubstar ‘Lost in Space’ album, covered here on EO, with huge track ‘Bubblin’,’
The EP is entitled ‘Germany’s Next Top Wobble’ and is a must-have for the sound Bassclash Records is pushing. The release should propel Bukez Finezt even further with his refreshing wobble tunes and heavy basslines. He remixes ‘Waterdrops,’ a Requake track from the Bassclash album and is one of the highlights. The remix has been rinsed by a bunch of artists on radio shows in the UK recently and is one of the best off the EP. Another favorite is the remix of Badklaat’s ‘Head Top,’ already released on Bassclash. You can hear these two remixes below, accompanied by the full tracklist. Keep it locked to EO for continual coverage on the best releases in dubstep.

N-Type’s Wheel & Deal Records is having a huge year, bringing you the latest tracks from young stars and experienced big names within dubstep. One of those young stars is Dismantle, hailing from Brighton, UK. The producer’s sound is distinct and fresh, with his tracks rinsed by the biggest names and DJs in the genre, both on radio and live shows. Included on the release are tracks ‘Destroy’ and the highly anticipated ‘Computation V.I.P.,’ originally thought to not be getting a release. Last month Dismantle confirmed on twitter and facebook that the V.I.P. would be seeing a release on Wheel & Deal, saying: “I feel like I owe you guys one.”
The first track ‘Destroy’ has the patented Dismantle vibe and one that I’ve heard live many times in sets from people like Skream & Benga. The highlight is the second track, the variation in production of ‘Computation.’ The original being one of the biggest club smashers of the year in 2011, the V.I.P. is mental and takes it to a different level. There is no confirmed date yet but look for it next month. EO will keep you updated with any news on this release and more from Wheel & Deal and Dismantle in the future.
HENCH boss Jakes has put out a new mix for download and it features exclusive absolute bangers all the way through. The second track in, CADI, seldomly heard except in live sets from the don DJ Hatcha sets, is off his upcoming album and is a favorite at the moment! If you like dubstep at all, your neck is going to hurt after this one. Tunes included from Vodex, Requake, grizzly evilness in Demon ft Beezy‘s Ramiification forthcoming on M.U.D, as well HENCH badman such as Lost.
The genre of dubstep has become an aggressive, mosh-friendly music in the U.S. of late. The most popular artists and shows are headliners whose music is adored by the â€œfilthier thanâ€ generation of youtube laptop listeners.
On March 31st, Brooklyn-based Reconstrvct held their fifth event that bucks what has become the trend and takes you back to the roots. Roots not only in the sense of lineup, but the music being the motivating factor. â€œLow frequency with Decencyâ€ is Reconstrvctâ€™s mission, and that about sums it up.
The line-up included Brooklynâ€™s own Truenature, Boston-based Prism, Kahn from Bristol, the Baltimore O.G. Joe Nice, and fabeled Chestplate recording labelâ€™s latest addition, Razor Rekta.
With previous headliners like V.I.V.I.K. and Tunnidge, you know what itâ€™s all about: bass. The night did not disappoint, and every set had itâ€™s own moments. Some of the heaviest sounds and vibes of the night included 6bloccâ€™s â€˜How You Like Me Now,â€™ Prismâ€™s early April Foolâ€™s with Skrillex â€˜Scary Monstersâ€™ tease into â€˜Eyezâ€™ drop, or Compaâ€™s â€˜Dem a Talk.â€™
Truenature opened the night with plenty of Goth-Trad, hopefully a clue for the future. Followed by Prism and Kahn who each held it down with tracks like ones listed above, and classics from Joker and Distance, like â€˜Malice.â€™ Razor Rekta played a varied memorizing set, with his release â€˜Lokomotiv,â€™ other Chestplate stompers, some grime tunes, and â€˜Taurus,â€™ a favorite at the moment. Joe Nice let everyone know who the king is with his exclusive set of dubplates, one that included a rare DMZ vs MZN track making it one to remember.
Carrying the torch from events like the pioneering Dub War NYC nights, debuting artists in North America or New York, is no easy feat. Bringing you the best in bass music and amazing lineups, you donâ€™t want to miss Reconstrvct VI. EO will bring you the latest when they release what they have in store for their June 2nd event.
Coming off their successful debut release, HeadZ Will Roll RecordZ continues to push their drum & bass, dubstep, electro-house sound. For a label from New York City, you wouldn’t be able to tell from their roster of artists. Another four-track release, Vol. 2 released March 29th features tracks from 5th DimensioN hailing from Hungary, Boss from Holland, Subtrax and hometown Grimenoceros. The label continues their trend of hard hitting releases that are pushing the genre to different levels. After the jump links to to purchase exclusively on Beatport, and my highlight of the release, 5th DimensioN’s grizzly head-banger. Make sure to keep an eye out on any future releases as EO will have it covered.
HeadZ Will Roll RecordZ, a New York label that “never sleeps” just like it’s city, released their debut EP ‘Sit on my Bass Vol. 1′ on March 1st. Featured on the release are artists Boss, Leon Frick, Muck Duck, and Subtrax. With a slogan “dance ’till your dead,” buyer beware. The debut release reached the Top 50 on the overall Beatport Top 100. If you like high energy and low bass, HeadZ Will Roll is a label to keep an eye on for future releases. Make sure to buy the four-track EP exclusively on Beatport.
Hitting Terminal 5 on April 6th, UK mau5trap label star Feed Me brings his ‘With Teeth’ tour to New York. Guest 12 Planet, one of the many on the different stops of the tour, will be joining in the madness. Both artists have risen to immense popularity, and any show with them on the bill is certainly one not to miss. From Feed Me’s first release to his latest release, Escape from Electic Mountain hitting #1 on the iTunes Dance Album Charts, he has seen nothing but success. The scale of this tour proves it, and among the other guests on the tour stops include Skream & Benga, Kill the Noise, AC Slater, Felguk, and Alvin Risk. At a venue like Terminal 5, the wealth of room will be needed for the crowd dancing non-stop to the hard-hitting electro sounds of Feed Me. Look out for his debut album August 12th, which will definitely reach the top of the charts.
The event will run from March 30th to April 1st, located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York at Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello. Among the unique array of collaborative art and musical performances include two sets from headliner Simon Posford as Shpongle, this being the first stop of the his spring tour, and another as Hallucinogen. Incredible psychedelic artist Alex Grey will be in attendance doing live painting with his wife Allyson Grey during ‘Shpongle Presents at the Masquerade,’ as well as Ott‘s set on Saturday. On the bill are other prominent psybient and electronic artists such as Conspirator, Dopapod, and lespecial.
Playing after Porter Robinson is a tough feat these days, but clearly Dirty South was going to mash it up regardless. Dirty South’s set at Ultra is an example of seamless and smooth transitions with each track flowing into the other with ease. The mix of longer build ups and drops with quicker transitions and tracks gave it enough variety to have you moving the whole time. You’ll hear tunes like ‘Greyhound,’ ‘Walking Alone,’ and a variety of mash-ups like ‘I Love You So’ & ‘Promises.’ Dragan also played his ‘Rise‘ edit from Michael Brun, a new addition to Phazing Records, who came on stage during his track. Enjoy!

Flux is also headlining at Starscape, June 9th in Baltimore. Stay locked to EO for more information on any upcoming tour dates and announcements!
