http://youtu.be/lxkZjs8aVuo Throwback to a great Drum ‘N Bass track I discovered about a year ago to beat this icy weather. “Amazon Rain” is a beautiful track that builds a melodic overtone throughout the song getting stronger and climaxing midway through. If you don’t have time for the lengthy though ear-pleasing building that lasts around 4 minutes skip to about the 4:30 mark. The vibe of the song will get you moving, or make you feel like you should be moving (great for racing…games, don’t race to this track, especially not in this weather!) If you’d like to hear another jam from B-Complex that is just as atmospheric in its melody and complex in its beat (and even features female vocals!) check out “Broken Windows (feat. ill-esha)” – http://youtu.be/NGQYq0E3Xzs
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!

Checking my YouTube subscriptions I almost reluctantly clicked on a new single shared by the group UKF Dubstep. Mainly because that last word in the groups name, the oft thrown around, and at times despised genre of music that hipsters won’t even give the time of day anymore.
However to my relief, LAXX’s “Step One” is not your everyday Dub track and what’s more, as a long time fan of EDM since before “Dubstep” was “invented,” what does it matter what the hipsters like? Let them have it, right?

Tinashe has been everywhere the past year or so as a force to be reckoned with in the R&B/Hip-Hop scene. Her vocals have attracted the attention of several electronic DJs who have remixed her songs six ways to Sunday. I recently posted a remix of her song “Vulnerable” by dj “Jacuzzi.”
Now her single 2 On (feat. Schoolboy Q) is available on iTunes.
This very club-friendly single, a DJ Mustard beat/production (who hisself has also had an amazing year in productions), goes well with Tinashe’s dreamy, ear-catching vocals. Check it out and give her support y’all!
