Nostalgia The Other Side Play Me Records

It was just a short six weeks ago that we brought to you a mesmerizing video featuring a track by a rising Dubstep and Drum n Bass act via Minnesota by the name of Nostalgia. Within a few weeks, that video had surpassed a million views, then he delivered a flawless mix restoring some faith in Dubstep, and now he’s providing us with the first glimpse of his new EP, due August 27th on the infamous and trendsetting Play Me Records.

Preview the EP on SoundCloud below, and mark your calendars for August 27th.

I think musical virtuoso Madeon put it best when he said via twitter awhile back that “Dubstep is only exciting when it’s of an astounding production quality. In other words the novelty wore off, it’s about brilliance now.” Well, kid, here’s one of your new favorite artists, Nostalgia. With wildly successful releases already on Play Me Records, a video that just posted a million views in about two weeks (we posted it when it had 70k), support from Borgore, Modestep – to name a few – and plenty of promising forthcoming remixes and originals, Nostalgia is going to be making a name for himself as we approach 2013.

Nostalgia just posted this stellar mix that packs 21 tracks into a 29-minute span, so get ready for a thrill ride that’s (thank God) not filled with your generic, everyday, Top-10 Beatport chart dubstep anthems. Tracklisting after the jump!
