Colorado underground hip-hop and all around bass producer Timeline has just released an EP on Overthrow Music Authority. The three track dubstep EP is filled with classic samples and some beautiful melodies that separates his sound from a lot of the noise that is now commonly associated with the genre. He gave us an exclusive track called ‘Somebody’, which is a groovy Hospital Recs inspired DnB tune that’s been graciously stuck in my head for the better part of this week. Purchase the EP on Beatport.

Fresh off of massive performances at Ultra and SXSW and prepping for an equally massive US tour, ZEDS DEAD have gotten love from everyone from BBC Radio 1’s Kissy Sell Out to GQ Magazine to Much Music (Canada’s MTV, remember?) while maintaining the signature raw energy of their live shows alongside the elegant brutality of their productions.
You’ve been chomping at the bit on our GDD Facebook since we announced this release, so without further ado it is my distinct pleasure to present to you ZEDS DEAD – 1975. Full track download, tour dates and a video of Christiano Ronaldo’s righteously (ridiculously) sexy Russian girlfriend Irina Shayk grinding dirty to the track in her intimate wear. Seriously…
Over the next few days, we’ll be posting all the vital information to the events that we’ll be throwing in Miami next week for Miami Music Week. Once again, we’ve teamed up with OVERTHROW for the official unofficial closing party of Ultra 2011. And yes, it’s at a full nude stripclub called Gold Rush. And yes, Miami badman and multiple DMC champ Craze, along with ATL trenchstep dude Heroes x Villains, along with a bunch of other DJs including GDD’s own BONES and myself will be playing everything from Juvenile to Joker. Pre-sale tix are $10 and you must be 21 to see the tata’s. Infamous photographer Bronques of lastnightsparty.com will be capturing the debauchery, so if you drink too much and forget what the stripper who gave you a lap-dance looked like, we’ll have documentation.
Oh, and there’s probably gonna be some Moombahton in there too.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the GDD™ movement, today I bring you a brand new mix tape from a man who truly does not need any introduction, the one and only Dieselboy. Dieselboy’s mix tapes have turned on generation after generation of heads to the sounds of drum and bass. From “Drum and Bass Selection USA” in 1996 to “Substance D” in 2008, each has become a classic for the genre. Recognized for their solid content, clever aesthetics, imaginative concepts, and intense energy, his CDs have set the bar against which other DJ’s mix projects are measured. Because he releases his mixes fairly infrequently, these moments are considered a special event.
His Mixtape’s are as well known as his ferious live sets are.
Dieselboy – Unleashed! is his most layered and nuanced studio mix to date. Returning to his old school mixtape roots where he isn’t limited to what tracks he could use or license, Dieselboy has used the opportunity to take Unleashed! to another level.
56 tracks were used to craft a deep and extensive 73-minute mix that reveals itself only after repeated listens. Steering away from banging out an “of-the-moment” forgettable dancefloor rinseout, Dieselboy throws down a wide variety of current and classic tracks and edits, wrapping up the mix with 25 minutes of finely diced dubstep that showcases his current taste in the genre and forthcoming tracks from his dubstep label, Subhuman. Finally, the project is given a tongue-in-cheek graphic treatment that references the exploitation of sci-fi fantasy movie posters of the 1970s. It looks and sounds hardcore.
Without further adieu I give you the mix tape Dieselboy himself considers his best to date! (Which is saying A LOT) Also be on the lookout for a GDD™ exclusive interview with Dieselboy in the coming weeks.

Kansas City might not be the first place you think of when it comes to hotbeds for emerging talent, but longtime native Spinstyles has been producing hundreds of good club ready tunes for the past few years, however, he keeps them all to himself. I finally got him to give away his dubstep remix of everyone’s perfect beachday anthem ‘Sunlight’ by Bag Radiers. In the upcoming months, he’ll have an EP coming out on Overthrow Music Authority. Who says Missouri doesn’t know how to party?!
After the huge success of his mixtape on Mad Decent, NY heavyhitter J.Rabbit has just released a two track EP on Play Me Records. The feature track ‘Ninja Step’, is a zen master’s worst nightmare. Continuing on the theme of his smash hit ‘Ninja Gaiden’, J.Rabbit turns up the ferocity for a peak-time destroyer. Buy the EP here.
A couple months back, I introduced you to Miami’s newest dubstep threat, Caligula. They ended up winning the ‘M.I.A. – Steppin’ Up’ remix competition outright and were treated to a few days in the Red Bull studio in LA working on their upcoming EP due out this Fall on the OVERTHROW record label. I have two of their most recent remixes. One pays homage to Miami’s most notorious janitor Rick Ross, and the other is their submission for Klever and Kill The Noise’s ‘Tuff as Nails’ remix competition. Both are enough to keep you buzzing through this Monday.
I was just thinking the other week, “I really hope that we can get another massive dubstep night going at CONTROL soon,” and fortunately my wish was granted as the don of LA dubstep, 12th Planet, will be headlining this Friday alongside a DJ set by NASA and a rare West Coast performance by Brooklyn producer Kingdom, who has just released a new EP on Night Slugs titled That Mystic. All you bassheads better be in attendance.
The UK Drum and Bass duo Chase & Status is set to release their newest single “Let You Go” the 15th of the next month. Unlike most of their past releases this one has less of a drum & bass sound and has much more of a dance floor hit feel to it. But never fear if you do not like their newest direction the EP also has a great Drum & Bass Remix by The Brookes Brothers, also the producing duo Nero gives you their dubstep remix and also as another plus Chase & Status also include their “VIP” edit of the track on the EP as well. My personal favorite out of the 3 remixes is Nero’s as usual. Check it out!
