Twofold shows us what post-dubstep music should sound like, more akin to its Drum ‘N Bass, Dance (almost techno if you will) roots and less bass-centered “wub wub” music (as Borderlands 2 so amusingly put it) on their EP “The Second Phase”.
I bought their EP on Beatport.com after hearing the first single “Skyfire.” Always a fan of vocal dance music this song, struck a chord with me, no pun intended. Also on the EP, “Goliathus” and “Violet” are stand out tracks making Twofold a definite artist to look out for in dance clubs. The final track “Sector 14” goes back to the mainstream dubstep sound, or almost a Heavy Drum ‘N Bass track centered around a “noisy” buildup, climax and breakdown. Nevertheless, for the price, this is a great EP for any EDM fan and for DJs, two of the tracks are already at the mix-friendly 140 BPM. Check ’em out for yourself!
The originators of the trap EDM turn up game have released a new Banned mix, titled “Banned 3D” the hour+ long mix compiles new trap music, with favorites from artists such as Juicy J, RiFF RaFF and more.

I may put a tracklist up when I get a minute but I have been very busy.
Ke$ha and Pitbull have taken their hit single, “Timber” to the top of the Hot 100 charts, according to Billboard. This marks the second single for Pitbull to top No. 1 charts and the third for Ke$ha. Pitbull previously held the top spot with “Give Me Everything” feat. Ne-Yo Afrojack and Nayer in early July 2011, while Kesha’s “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R” topped the chart for several consecutive weeks in 2010. The song is currently at No. 2 on the iTunes Top 100 just behind Katy Perry and Juicy J.’s “Dark Horse.”
“Timber” combines Ke$ha’s catchy hooks and Pitbull’s usual ahem…”style” of rapping over blues harmonica melodies to a dance beat. The result is far more pleasing to the ear and while I have never been a fan of Pitbull lyrically his effort on this song seems much more, organic. Ke$ha only further saves this song with a hook only she could pull off. All this song needs now is a couple of good EDM remixes!
DJ Hoodboi and FLCNS deliver a massive remix of Ty Dolla $ign‘s summer smash hit “Paranoid” classifying their remix as, New Jersey House, I can’t stop playing this remix. The deconstruction of the beat and repetitive hooks from the original song create a very dance-floor ready tune that any DJ, or casual music listener can appreciate.
Ty Dolla $ign has been blowing up on the West Coastand in Atlanta since his release ofBeach House 2. Follow him on Twitter at @tydollasign also be sure to follow and support DJ Hoodboi and the Falcons at @djhoodboi and @FLCNS respectively!
