Mimb’s Top 5 for the Past 5

And how she fell in love with electronic music

I first met Lauren in 2011 on Twitter because of a Facebook Ad I was running about a SoundCloud initiative I was doing for Silence at the time (I love how convoluted that sounds). As many people as I’ve talked to on Twitter over the years, I’ve never met someone so honest about her love for music. Someone without another agenda. And I see her dedication every day.

I usually don’t start my daily SoundCloud listening until later on in the day, but this girl is up at the butt crack of dawn listening to the shit out of it (she seriously wakes up too early) and she always gets in the comment or reshare before I do. The one thing I’ve given her shit about is what she’s doing to contribute in music, but she’s been doing something about it […]

Beyond Wonderland 2014

with our list of this year's best bass music

Beyond Wonder 2014 - Boombox

The same styles of EDM from last year seemed to dominate Beyond Wonderland this year. Mainly progressive house and various forms of bass music. I like a lot of both, but this mainstream shit sounds so manufactured. It’s like old people buying into infomercials, but at least they have an excuse (they’re old).

I know I sound like the typical music blogger bitchin about the mainstream, but I bring it up so someone will help me understand why people settle for this shit. There are just so many better alternatives. And a few were actually on side stages at Beyond. I guess the lack of awareness is the biggest problem.

So every year, since last year, we’ve put together a list of our favorite EDM tracks for Beyond. Since we’ve already covered house this year with our tropical house & deep house playlists, we decided to go for bass.

It does include deep house & electro funk, but we tried to highlight as much glitch & lazers & shit as possible. Just remember, bass is more for the feeling & dance than for the sound.

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 Music of 2011 (Part 3) : Dubstep Remixes

The year that gorgeous vocals got turned onto that wobble

Dubstep remixes were dominated by b.e.a.utiful vocals this year…. Or maybe it’s just I’m obsessed with these beauts mixed with dirty, dirtay dubstep. Either way, this style has ruled SNG for the last half of the year and hope it rules for many months into next.

ill-esha · Hellraiser (Halloween Remix)

Gettin Devil-esha for Halloweeeeeen

ill-esha takes on Hellraiser for Halloween and horrorsteps it to a whole new level of devilishness. Even without the Halloween theme, this is one mind-bending track, but it definitely sets the mood off right for any Halloween scare-tactic.

Brandy & Monica · Boy is Mine (ill-esha remix)

What a track to bring back. Such a rush of 90's nostalgia.

ill-esha brings back this 90’s classic and puts some heavy glitch bass to the mix. Better yet, she keeps to the original beat, not trying to impress with massive, incoherent drops.

Now, if she could only find more contemporary vocals for her to drop her lovliness on… wait, doesn’t she sing too

SoundKlout 29 : ill-esha

Sexiest producer in the Pacific Northwest

Really don’t want to belabor this point, but I’ve finally found a female producer to show off! As many female musicians as we’ve featured on here, I rarely come by a producer, let alone a top-notch one! Now we get one that not only produces some heeaaavy electronic, but switches up her style every damn time. From dubstep to downtempo, ill-esha’s production is mighty fine.

One issue I had with her SoundCloud page is her abundance of clips, although a lot of them seemed complete. I’ve included some of my favorite clips at the bottom, now I gotta go hunt some of their full versions down.

The Weeknd · The Morning (ill-esha’s lovestep jam)

"Girl put in work, girl girl put in work"

Ill-esha’s remix of The Morning by The Weeknd captures the smooth sexiness of the vocals and adds a downtempo, soulful beat. I especially enjoy the electronic synths that fayde in and out giving the song that airy feel.  And her bassline for the chorus is amazing! In the hands of many other dubstep producers, The Weekend’s soft vocal would be drowned out by the dubstep wobbles, but Ill-esha puts her own sounds in harmony with the vocals […]
