Well, its been AGES since I posted anything up here, but… I went cruising the internets this afternoon and found a few gems that I had to share. Enjoy. Maybe I’ll start posting here again with summer around the corner.
Adventure Club – Wait
Zedd – Spectrum (Ft. Matthew Koma)
Ellie Goulding – High For This
I downloaded Crave You off the Adventure Club Dubstep soundcloud about a week or two ago, thought it was a great track. Hadn’t gotten around to checking out any of their other stuff until this morning…. Great dub, for someone (me) that isn’t a HUGE dubstep fan… I like the stuff with at least some sort of melody, and this really hits the spot. Check them out!

@elliegoulding is pretty.
We all like shiny lights, thats why you’re reading this post and why you’re going to press play on at least one or two of the below tracks. Thus, the above picture. I Googled for “shiny club lights” and there ya go!
I decided to spend a whopping half hour scouring a few of my favourite blogs and put together a few tracks that stood out. You may have heard a few or all, but oh well. The Adam K / Soha Remix is unbelievable, just… WOW!
I again, haven’t posted on here in forever. Mainly because posting MP3s to the server takes forever from my home connection. However, yesterday they more than doubled my speed. I figured it was time to give it another go!
I’m heading to the Calvin Harris / Laidback Luke / Felguk / Lazy Rich show tonight at the Vancouver Convention Center… should be fun fun fun!
Here’s some random tracks from the top of my iTunes, enjoy!
Yes, it has been a very long time since i’ve posted on here. I’m sorry, hopefully you all still find a place for me in your itunes libraries
The main reason being that when I’m at home, uploading takes forever (1mbps), and when I’m at work (100mbps) I don’t have time to post. Anyways, here ya go, some trax.
I’m in Torontoooooo recovering from a wild hangover and getting ready to head out tonight to see Felix Cartel at The Social and Chuckie/Sidney Samson at Guvernment. Never been to either club, so should be fun! Went to the brunny last night, a “Roxy” equivelant (so I’ve been told) and … from what I remember, had a great time and met lots of cool people!! Here’s an extremely random assortment of a few tracks.
I found this track this morning, more of a series of tracks in a mashup/remix. Fantastic.
You know you’re in for a good weekend when it’s planned out on in a flow chart? Halloween was pretty great, here’s some random tracks from myTunes over the past week or so. Enjoy. Continue reading
Last night was Calvin Harris and Steve Aoki at Celebrities. Therefore, I’m somewhat in recovery mode this evening and felt a post was in order.
I’ve found a few tracks in the past week that I’m really into, hope you like them! Continue reading
This weekend I’ve been checking out Montréal, visiting friends, etc. It’s a pretty cool city, SO different from Vancouver! The taxi drivers are all Haitian, and hate anyone that doesn’t speak english. Everyone else has been SUPER pleasant and we had a blast last night at The Belmont for The XX Afterparty! Continue reading
Two nights so back to back, you’d think I was bored or something. Sooooo not the case, just in a sharing mood perhaps.
Enjoy these tracks, some new, some old but fabulous.
Ahh Home. Let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you.
Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
Home is wherever I’m with you.
Here’s a few tracks from the good ‘ol “Recently Added” on my iTunes. I especially like the Tegan and Sara mix at the end, and the Alice Deejay remix. Make sure to check them out, amongst these other gems that I have stumbled across in the past couple weeks. Enjoy. Continue reading

The District Sleeps Alone by The Postal Service is a long time favourite of mine. It takes me back a few years, is a great calm track and always had the potential for great remix. I came across this Dubstep mix of it today, and while not a huge Dub fan, was impressed with its gentle integration with a classic. Check it, and these other tracks out
I’ve been failing at the whole posting thing as usual… SORRY!
Here are a few tracks at the top of my iTunes recently added that I’ve been feeling lately… Messy night at CRANKWORX, this is a piece of our soundtrack!
Happy Birthday VENUE!!!
If you’re around Vancouver this Thursday July 29th be sure to check out VENUE for the hottest industry centric party of the year. A huge shout out to @IAMRUBY and @BLUEPRINTEVENTS for keepin the party goin’ every weekend!
There are limited tickets available on Clubzone.com (Click Here)
Here’s a round up of some of the latest tracks I’ve stumbled across on the internets. Hope you enjoy!
So Nero is playing a show tomorrow, sunday night, at Venue. Together with LA Riots I’m positive this is going to be an amazing show.
Everyone should know who Nero is, but I’ve posted some of my favorite tracks up to get in the mood for the show! Tickets are still available HERE and they’re only $15
I suggest that anyone who’s even remotely into Dubstep check it out. It’s gonna be insaneeee.
I’ve failed miserably at posting lately because I went to the Calgary Stampede this past weekend. Gary was a good friend while we were in Calgary, but got left on the side of the road somewhere in the rocky mountains after taking up WAY too much room in the car. Up side to this is that I have been hoarding music for a while… Enjoi.
Switchin’ up the genre is what I seem to be doing more and more on here, and I like it. Like A Martyr is a local Vancouver band… Check it out!
Like A Martyr – As Long As You Don’t Get Caught (Fantasy Ranch Records)
“Please, rock is dead. Until a four piece like this resurrects it by virtue of sheer infatuation and zeal.” –The Georgia Straight
My Interwebs are seriously slow so I can’t upload shit. At least I can still link!
Just posting a video link, because the song is awesome and the video is hilarious.
It’s Meow Meow by High Rankin.
I figured that it’s been about a week since I did a post, so my iTunes is nice and full of new tracks for y’all.
Dubstep is pretty big globally right now, but I hadn’t heard much coming out of Asia until I found Ajapai from Tokyo, Japan! His Mobilized EP just dropped a couple days ago on Beatport and it’s pretty dope, I’d recommend any Dubstep fans to check it out. Interesting tracks for sure, this guys got some skills!
Cool to see Dubstep coming from just about every corner of the world! Now if someone wants to find me African Dubstep?!
So I listen to a lot of new artists daily, but group that’s really piqued my curiosity lately has been Slum Dogz, a rather new collaboration between DJ Swan-E, Krafty MC and the increasingly popular Doctor P. While they started out making DnB there’s quite a few tracks right now just waiting to be released. Sadly I’ve only got <2min promos of all the tracks, but expect to hear full versions out soon!
So this isn’t all that new but it’s new to me! A friend of mine just introduced me to The Upbeats, which are a duo from New Zealand making some awesome DnB and now progressing into Dubstep.
Posted below are a few tracks from their recent album Big Skeleton, released in November on Non-Vogue records. If you like the tracks below I’d definitely recommend checking out the whole album.
The Drum n Bass coming out of New Zealand seems to be a little bit more mellow than that from the UK, so probably easier to listen to for those not usually into DnB.
Canada greatest country in the world
all other countries are run by little girls
Canada number one exporter of potassium
other countries have inferior potassium
ENJOY THIS VERY RANDOM MIX OF TRACKS
UK Dubstep producer EMALKAY is coming to play a show here in Vancouver on Sunday July 11th. Gonna be a sick show, Celebrities has a terrific sound system for dubstep.
I’m sure everyone has heard his track When I Look at You by now, but I’ve put it up with a few more tracks below to check out. If you like what you hear I hope to see you at the show on the 11th!!
It’s been a slow Sunday… Listening to some random tracks that don’t make me want to start partying again. A couple of these have been around for a while, I know, and do not care. KayThx <3
Now usually I don’t like to make a post directly in response to something I saw blogged, but I was checking Squitty Bubbler this morning and found Horse Force. After laughing my ass off at his MySpace description and being slightly disturbed by his awesome images, I listened to his newest Dubstep track and was surprised that it’s actually good!
As in the original post I found, I believe that his MySpace description is better than anything I could put into words. Bear in mind that Dubstep isn’t his usual genre, he usually makes Breakcore/Hardcore tracks.
Israeli producer Borgore is playing a show in downtown Vancouver tomorrow at Shine nightclub! Not a usual venue for me, but for this show it’s gonna be dope.
Borgore has essentially made up his own style, referred to as Gorestep. It’s like Dubstep, but so incredibly filthy due to his heavy metal influence (he’s also a drummer in a metal band). Some people think it’s too much, but fuck ‘em. If it offends someone then it’s probably good stuff!
North Vancouver’s own DJ Rob Paul is back with a new track to shake up the dance floor… Ladies and Gentlemen, turn up your speakers, cause this one is a BANGER!
Afrojack is coming to Vancouver tomorrow… Event details here
Here’s a couple tracks by him, and and one by Normal Doray & David Tort that I thought was pretty good.
Woke up this morning with a bunch of new music somehow on my iTunes…. Thanks B.G. Thought we’d share…
Well after a weekend (It was midweek, but damn it I’ll call it a weekend!) of drinking and goodtimes I’m back, back to bring you the latest and best music I can find in my daily travels of the internet.
I like a lot of dubstep, but as a general rule, dubstep remixes of non electronic music are often pretty strange and rarely flow. The two tracks below by TheMessiah do NOT fall into that category. Two well known songs, two sick dub mixes. This guy is good.
So we needed a little break to get a sunburn, do some waterskiing, tubing, swimming, jetski riding, etc… Not to mention drinking the WHOLE time…
BUT we’re back.
Here’s a few tracks to get you goin, I’ll try to do a good weekend post Saturday while nursing my hangover.
So I’m leaving for a few days (no new posts until Thursday!), and thought I’d make one last update, something different for a Saturday afternoon
While they are both sorta Dubstep, they’re both veryy different. The first track, Breathe Me by Sia is an excellent chill track to listen to, even if you don’t like what I usually post!
The second track is… well… it’s interesting. I like it, you probably won’t, and thats ok.
Obviously I love Dubstep (as should be fairly apparent from anyone who reads my posts) and I’ve heard so much coming out of the UK, but lately I’ve been trying to expand my horizons and find good Dubstep artists worldwide. There’s a lot of talent out there, you just gotta find it.
So to start it off, today I’m featuring Ninja Kodou from Ma’alot, Israel. Producing Dubstep, DnB, Breakbeat, and more, Ninja Kodou is extremely talented and certainly has a unique sound. Less ‘dirty’ than most UK Dubstep, while still retaining the feel of the genre. Check it out!
We’ve got a few new tracks, remixes and a summer mashup from DJ Earworm.
OK so I just stumbled across Boards of Canada, Deadmau5 released a remix of their “Kiteracer 2″ track less than 45 minutes ago. SICK super chill music.
Boards of Canada MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/abeautifulplace
The Sexinvaders are a duo from Berlin who just sent over this awesome bootleg of Boys Noize’s recent release Kontact Me. The original is pretty dope but their mix and the added synth really adds something to the track. I’d love to hear this dropped in the clubs, would sound amazing!
So yeah, I know I said I don’t like throwing up mixtapes usually, but one so good and full of fresh tunes can’t be ignored. Inspector Dubplate brings us The Moustache Mixtape
There’s some damn good exclusive and newer tracks on here, not all the same regurgitated tracks like many dubstep mixtapes out there (excellent still, but variety is key). Track list included below, along with a few of the tracks I was able to find separately.
If you’re brave enough to click on this post after seeing that picture… props.
This track came on the other night and was pretty epic at the club, thought I’d share…
DROP THE LIME from New York is coming to VENUE NIGHTCLUB in Vancouver tonight. Check out a few of their tracks here… Hope to see you there! $3 HighBalls!!!!
I figured it was time to throw up some really random hip-hop/rap/etc tracks to mix it up… You won’t see many of these posts on here, but I do enjoy a bit of diversity!
Happy Sunday, back to the grind tomorrow…
This Tuesday, June the 8th, there’s going to be a Dubstep show at The Cellar nightclub on Granville St. The show features Sub Antix, a very talented Dubstep producer from right here in Vancouver!
Tickets are $10 at the door so why not go dance the night away… it is a Tuesday afterall!
These days where everyone is a DJ, you can’t just throw two songs together.. no, you need AT LEAST three. Well, take three big bangers by two huge DJs and you get the titular masterpiece by Steep. Take a listen, you’ll like it.
Another insane song I found on soundcloud is Stand Up (Meth Smoke Remix) by Grimblee. Check him out @ http://soundcloud.com/grimblee and definitely check out the track below.
Finally tossed up a few tracks in my playlist for the day. Enjoy.
Tonight at Celebrities Nightclub we’ve got Aeroplane from Brussels, Belgium coming in. They’ve got a pretty cool eclectic/psychedelic/emo/pop vibe goin on, check it out.
For full event details check out http://www.blueprintevents.ca/event_details.php?id=191926
There’s a decent amount of dubstep comin out of New Zealand these days, and while it’s fairly different from the bangers coming from the UK, this shit’s pretty bomb.
I’m sure everyone by now has heard of Mt. Eden with their huuuge track Sierra Leon, and if you like the chilled-out style give the rest of their stuff a look for sure!
Cheshire is another wonder from NZ who’s been doing big things lately, and his new track How Low is the shit.
I’m throwing up Blow Me (always blow on the pie) by Ninjastep too, since it’s sick as fuck, and they’re from NZ as well.
Thought with my first post here I would share a few of my favourite tech house tracks at this moment. Hopefully you’ll enjoy! The picture above was taken at Club Amnesia which is on the island of Ibiza. Continue reading
Even though it’s depressinly rainy and shitty in Vancouver, the summer music seems to be spewing and I’m finding new tracks every day… Feelin’ a few from last night’s batch that I thought I’d throw up for y’all.
I love Sweet Shop by Doctor P and many of it’s mixes, but never actually gave the original much of a listen until it was put out on the new MoS dubstep album. That said, it’s sick!
Doctor P is pretty dope in general, so I’ve included a couple of his other tracks as well below. Enjoy.
This is a little different from what I usually listen to, but I’ve been following Trent Reznor’s new group for some time, and today they released a 6 song EP free to download, with the option of paying $2 for lossless format and HD video extras.
The EP is certainly interesting, I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it yet, but it seems everything Trent does goes big, so I’m sure some people will enjoy it!
Im not going to explain the title, just listen to the tracks and let me know what you think. Word.
DubFreaks has released a second FREE ep titled Freaks of Nature as a follow up to the recently released ep Never Trust a DJ Who Can’t Dance
It’s a little bit harder dubstep, a little dirtier than you would find on the Ministry of Sound dubstep or other big releases, so it may not be to everyone’s taste.
A few of my favorites below, as well as a link to download the album for FREE on the DubFreaks facebook page.
So I’m about a month late posting this, but the new Ministry of Sound dubstep album is great.
Having a chance to listen to it repeatedly I’ve got to say this is going to be a big album this summer, with some huge club bangers.
Lots of variety, some of it quite out there (as is to be expected with MoS), but even if you’re not a fan of dubstep give the following songs a listen, you never know, you might like it!
This past weekend was pretty fun filled, went to see Boys Noize at The Commodore on Friday, sandwiched in between visits to VENUE and followed with a trip up the stairs to Gorgamish… Hours of dancing for all.
A laid back Sunday ended up turning into a search for new music, a fruitful search it turned out to be…
Check out the new hits after the break, comment if you’re a reader, would love some feedback!!! Continue reading
I used to listen to REM all the time, so when I saw this it instantly grabbed my attention. Check ‘er out!
I’ve got myself setup in a new office in Gastown, loving the atmosphere around here and the space is sweet. You can expect more frequent updates as I’ve got a crazy internet connection that takes about 2 seconds to upload a song. Also switched hosting for the uploads over to the Amazon S3 so everything should be fast to download or listen to.
Here’s a few tracks that I found over the weekend, enjoy.
