Melodic Dubstep

the chill side of bass music

Melodic dubstep may sound like an oxymoron at first, but it is for sure the best of its kind. It’s the kind of music that will take you out of your element, away from your own personal shit show – kinda like most music, but better. I would go as far to say it carries you to heights higher than our own beats to blaze to. So get out your best speakers, preferably headphones, and take a step away for a minute with some bass in mind.

Best of the Phoenix ‘Trying to Be Cool’ Remixes

Breakbot & Bloomfield do two different #'s to this soon to be classic

So I guess The Creator’s Project went up and got all the stems from Phoenix’s ‘Trying to Be Cool’ and bestowed it upon us all. I’ve went through a few of the big numbered remixes and found Breakbot’s disco delight, but also caught something a bit off the radar with Will Bloomfield’s entrancing electro.

I’ve had these lyrics stuck in my head all damn day and it really could’ve been from either of these two. What remix do you prefer over the other

Bronson · Diamonds

with Janet Jackson vocals all skewed up

It’s not about what you say, but how you say it — especially when it comes to music on this site. This diamonds are a girl’s best friend business has been goin on since Marilyn and even though the saying may be cliched enough, how it’s said here has not.

I didn’t originally know this, but Janet Jackson lends her vocals from her ‘Diamonds’ song. However, as you’ll see, Bronson has transformed her sweet style into some deep house, hypnotique soul.

Storm Queen · Look Right Through (MK Dub III)

"They don't talk to me, they look right through."

There are remixes that completely change up the style and there are ones that improve on what’s existing (and others that unimprove). While Mark Kinchen hasn’t completely changed up Storm Queen’s original, this ‘Look Right Through’ remix certainly improves on it. With a UK garaged-out sound, this tempo was certainly crafted for Storm Queen’s vocalist.

Juicy J · 30 Inches (Yung Gud Remix)

featuring the Gucci Mane and Project Pat

Over the past year I’ve been all about disco & soul’s remix revival, but I’m hoping now this is an intro into rap’s. Yung Gud steers Juicy J’s ’30 Inches’ onto one of the smoothest jams of the year. Reminds me of how 2Pac & the Outlawz use to hit.

Head over to Yours Truly for a proper introduction to Yung Gud.

iLLPHONiCS · Your Body

featuring Lamar Harris on horns

Lately more than ever I’ve had to convince friends that rap like Mac Miller is not so good — it’s easier said than explained though. It’s not that all of this white boy rap isn’t fame worthy, it’s just some of it plain sucks while others simply lack the soul most a good amount of hip-hop has had in its past. However, even a smaller crowd has managed to pull it all off, which brings us to illphonics.

When I first heard illphonics’ emcee, Fallout, on ‘Your Body,’ I thought it was going to be just that white boy, college rap I try to stay away from. But soon enough I figured out that this has much more all mixed up. illphonics’ jam may have that pop style of hip-hop set in, but it’s mixed with some southern soul. From the chorus to the brass behind it, this is a good mix of pop fun and soul feelings.

Tove Lo · Habits

Where dirty pop should be goin'

Another rare case where I love reading into a song’s lyrics more than just a single verse at a time. Actually I usually make up my own words, but Tove Lo’s Habits paints a clear picture like few others do. She simply tells a good story.

Ghosts of Venice · My Love

featuring Josh Jakq gon' disco fresh

Ghosts of Venice treat us to some hearty, upbeat disco with a special guest on vocals. And like I love to point out with every song I post of his, Josh Jakq reminds me too much of Justin Timberlake. However, the tables have turned this time around when I heard a song playing it instantly reminded me of Josh Jakq’s voice and it turned out to be none other than JT’s. But besides my not-so brilliant insight that’s probably been pointed out to him too much already, it’s nice to hear Jakq change up his work from the hypnotics of soul to something so disco fresh. A definite match for that falsetto of his.

Hot Natured · Reverse Skydiving (Benoit & Sergio)

A disco remix of Anabel Englund's sultry seductions

I get such vivid imagery from something as simple as this song’s title. Same goes for the lyrics with their fun & well crafted ways. However, where this song really shines is in Benoit & Sergio’s disco rework of Hot Natured’s original. Anabel Englund’s voice packs such power without what seems any effort. Natural soul.

Moon Boots · Love Strong

Also, the need for a proper credits system

So like I always do, I made up my own lyrics to Moon Boots’ Love Strong song or at least parts of it. But when I tried to figure out the actual lyrics, I couldn’t. The weird thing is that these vocals sound so familiar. I thought a simple Google search or a SHAZAM! would do it, but no such luck.

This is why credits need to be given with a simple search.. or simpler. For the first time we have the ability to properly store extensive song data, yet there’s still no widely-known & used service that gives musicians this ability, easily. This has been brought up at a few SF MusicTech discussions I’ve listened to and I’m sure it will be again, but hopefully with someone who has a promising demo to show off this time around. [Dreams]
