What’s up my bassheads?!  I came across this Matta remix of Noisia’s dark yet funky tune ‘Gutterpunk’. Matta has taken Noisia‘s complex noise design one step further to construct a true dubstep banger. The reason I’m really digging this remix lies not only in the tempo change and well-produced bass that Matta has added, but also their ability to retain the same dark feel that was so prominent in the original. I also love how Matta drops back into the drum n bass at the end; really feeling this tune.

So check it out and get your half time groove on!

Happy Friday bassheads, we got a treat for you. Datsik & Excision, the evilest duo in music have just slammed out what could be one of their best remixes yet. They have taken Noisia‘s dreamy and driven Alpha Centauri and pumped out a monster that is heavy as sin. This is exactly what we’ve come to know and love from Datsik and Excision collabs, so bump this one at 11.*

* To all my LA brethren, make sure to catch Datsik annihilate the Music Box on Christmas day.
Ho Ho Ho Womp Womp Womp…

If I was obligated to do a one-word-festival-preview this would just say “INSANITY,” but fortunately for you I get to give you the real dirty dirt on what’s going down at the NOS Events Center this Saturday. Compliments of the crew over at Insomniac, this weekend’s 16th annual Nocturnal Festival is not to be missed. Even though it’s a bit off the beaten path out in San Bernardino, I for one totally love the set-up and location, and apparently so do about 40,000 others every September. The stages are set up in massive hangars, spacious tents, and something zuuper special and unique for the massive trance arena trucked in all the way from NYC.

On the grounds there is plenty of space to roam and explore and a wicked water feature that GDD™ does not condone swimming in! In addition to the top of the line production that has always been synonymous with Insomniac events, this year delivers top of the line talent across the entire spectrum of electronic music. From Steve Angello to Ferry Corsten, from JFK to ATB, to a CAN’T MISS set by Noisia, all the way to a Caspa, Benga, Skream trifecta taking place in the Sunken Garden, each stage is rife with opportunities for you to get your dirty little jig on. To get you psyched for the festival I got five essential performances for you to witness, and five crackin’ tunes to jack you up on the ride to the Events Center.

1. Dada Life
Gotta give it up for Olle and Stefan. Does anyone know how to get the party started harder than these guys? You always know what you’re gonna get when you do the DadaHOT FIRE!
2. Plump DJs
The Masters of the Breaks. Their set at Coachella two years ago was out of control. Or maybe I was out of control? Whatever. Don’t miss it.
3. Noisia
As mentioned above this trio is a must-see. Everyone who is anyone in DnB will tell you these guys are simply an elite, top notch talent. If you’re really not in to DnB, then allow them to be your introduction. If you haven’t heard their essential mix, then go hear it.
4. Steve Angello
Seen him both by himself, and as 1/3 of the Swedish House Supergang at EDC, and I think it’s safe to say he always brings the house down. Feel good tunes are guaranteed.
5. Ferry Corsten
Ferry’s set at Together As One three years ago will forever hold a special place in my heart. The man just knows how to play trance with some real energy to it. Throw in a stage/arena nearly 60ft tall with a 100,000 sq ft dancefloor + the chance to hear ‘Beautiful‘ on a proper system = something you don’t want to miss.
Honorable Mention
The Sunken Garden stage potentially going Plastician > Skream > Benga > Caspa back to back to back to back? Bassheads, make sure you take a five minute water break at least once.

And finally the tunes …
See you out there! Get your tickets HERE!
Much love,

Dutch trio Noisia just aired their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix 10 days ago. The mix is ruthless/amazing, and the guys really got to showcase a lot of their own original tracks from their upcoming album as well as some excellent collaborations with the likes of Sub Focus, Phace, Spor, amongst others. If any of you saw them at Beyond Wonderland last weekend, you know the absolute carnage these guys produce, so expect an ear-blasting, creative 2 hours from the DnB/Breaks experts. Also, if you’re in Miami this week, they will be playing tomorrow night at Heathrow Lounge and Thursday/Friday at Mekka.
