Dubstep pioneers Adventure Club have teamed up with producer Crankdat and female songstress and DJ, Krewella for the energy filled track, Next Life. Elements of dubstep, future house and bass collide in this uplifting “post-dubstep” track with each artist bringing their unique flair to the mix. Opening with soft melodies that transition into air guitar like synths and layers of sound makes for an interesting composition.
Krewella delivers magical vocals over Adventure Club’s one-of-a-kind soundscape; one that feels familiar but is also different enough from the dubstep that made them popular in the first place. The drop and the bassier elements of the track seem to be Crankdat’s doing, but I could be dissecting it wrong. Regardless, the trio deliver a powerful hit that successfully changes up a familiar format.
I’ll be waiting in the next life…

Featuring one of my favorite electronic acts, British singer/DJ duo Alunageorge, comes “To Ü,” arguably one the best songs off of Skrillex and Diplo’s new album Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü. AlunaGeorge is comprised of British singer/DJ Duo Aluna Francis and George Reid.
The group experienced a rise in popularity following the release of their first single “You Know You Like It” from their 2013 album, Body Music. This single became even more popular, as did the group themselves after rising superstar DJ Snake made a massive remix of the song in 2013. The remix was featured in a continuous megamix by dubstep DJ duo Adventure Club (Superheroes Anonymous Vol. 3) and by 2014, had become popular enough to warrant receiving its own music video.

The Adventure Club show held on December 28, 2013 was quite a rousing concert. It was almost hard to believe though that this was the same duo that got me into dubstep a year ago. Performing at Opera, the Illuminate event brought high energy and exquisite show techniques buried in the bro environment. The atmospheric vibe marred by a crowded room. The performance was also marred by several repeats of too well-known songs in playlist consisting of little variety.
Adventure Club came with all the same hype, lights and high energy one would expect from one of the most recognized groups in the EDM/Dubstep genre. Sadly, some of the opening acts actually put on a better show than Adventure Club. MK ULTRA and SnellVillain opened with some of the more eclectic sounds of the genre. The opening acts pumped up the crowd and going well with the audience’s glow sticks and light generating mittens consisting of all the colors of the rainbow.
On my YouTube page I captured a few of the moments when Adventure Club strayed from some of their most popular songs such as “Collect Call” & “Crave You,” which they played each at least 2 or 3 times. Unfortunately, I didn’t even hear some of their newer tracks or if I did they played them so seldomky, I hardly noticed. It would have been nice to hear some of the songs off of their Superheroes Vol. 3 mix, but they tended to play it a little too safe. MK ULTRA was the surprise highlight of the night for me, spinning several new songs and remixes, or if they were old, complimented the rave environment and hyped the crowd up much more than AC.
Adventure Club dropping it like it’s hot at Opera. Aside from several old songs they played multiple times, the concert while chock with “bros” was still a high-energy EDM fest, or in other words, a rave.
