Definitely one of my favorite East Coast servers of the filth has got to be Brooklyn producer J. Rabbit. This guy has torn it up time after time on his releases, and when I finally got to see him back in May, his live set was the furthest thing from disappointing. Well the Rabbit’s got a new release in the works, his Learning to Time Travel EP, which is going to be released by Rottun Recordson October 2nd! The first track off the EP, of the same name, was just released today and oh maaaaaaaan, is it filthy! Enjoy!!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve literally just been surviving this week by running off the adrenaline from Figure Saturday night. If you weren’t there, it was the opening night for SoundGarden Hall, and I don’t think it could have gone off better! With The Killabitsopening, the night was already off to an incredible start; the Canadian duo dropped plenty of their own filth, as well as a few favorites before capping off their set with “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. But then it was Figure’s turn, and as I’ve said time and time before, the Indiana drumstep destroyer doesn’t play around. This was my second time seeing Figure live and I can say whole-heartedly that it only got better. SoundGarden Hall also built the night up to be one of the most insane parties the city of Philadelphia has yet to see. Among a slew of new stuff Figure gave the other night though was his “Super Sonic Brain Waves (VIP Mix)”, which he just dropped for FREE on his Soundcloud this morning!! I love the way he plays with those BPMs. Ok, I’ll just leave you with some last words from Figure himself: “Philly is the shiiiiiit”.
Here’s some news on the indie music front that I’ve been getting pretty excited about lately. The Los Angeles synthpop trio known as Faded Paper Figures have set their new album, The Matter for an October 2012 release date. I’ve got a teaser from the new album to share with you, but I thought I’d also share one of their older (and one of my favorite of their’s) songs: “Invent It All Again” (off their previous album, New Medium). That track has a much more upbeat and, basically happy, feel to it; while the teaser seems to indicate a more somber and mature sound on the new album.
Plus, if you enjoy what you hear so far, be sure to also check out our article on “North by North”, also off New Medium!!

As if Figurethis passed weekend wasn’t enough destruction for the city of Philadelphia, we have Borgore to look forward to in two weeks! If you’re unfamiliar with the Israeli producer, he comes from metal roots, having previously been the drummer in an metal band. So it makes sense that his dubstep would be some of the grimiest and heaviest out there. Well, The TLAis bringing him back (he played the same venue last Fall!) on Saturday, October 13th to blow some speakers- and some minds. Now, Borgore also just released his new #TurnUp EP, which is the real reason I’m writing this post. The title track “Turn Up” and “Smell Your D*ck” have both already received some decent exposure. But the one that hasn’t is “Why Does It Feel”, which I’m happy about because it’s my favorite track off this new EP and I’m glad to be sharing it with you. I’m sure that my filth lovers will agree on this one.

It was a sad, sad day when the Subhuman Beatdown Tourcancelled their showing in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, we now have to wait for the city of Philadelphia to bring the filth that is BARE to one of our glorious venues (perhaps the mighty new SoundGarden Hall?) Regardless, the Los Angeles native just dropped three disgusting new tracks today in the form of his Strength In Numbers 2 EP. The release also features appearances by Liquid Stranger, Mark Instinctand Messinian, making for three tracks of overwhelming filth. I really don’t even want to highlight a specific track, because honestly all three tracks destroy.
Last night, BARE also just posted a little preview of a new remix he’s been working on. It’s a remix of a track he originally did called “Kush Lovers”, but this time it’s loaded up with wayyyy more filth. I think you guys are going to enjoy this one too. Just some more incentive to bring BARE to Philly!

I originally knew the Portland, Oregon producer called Guttstar as a deep-bass dubstep man. His sound was definitely glitchy and raw, but it was original and definitely fun to listen to. This new Summer Saturation EP keeps a lot with the glitch and bass-elements that Guttstar used before, although with significant and obvious altercations. However, the real big change is that this new release shows a lot of trap influence as well. Rattling snares abound from beginning to end of all seven of these new tracks. And that’s right, the entire this is yours FREE!! Turn those speakers up, and let that bass thump!
This one just got sent over earlier today and oh boy am I loving it. The track is by Canadian hip-hop artist Nox, and the icing on the cake is that this track is produced by our other Canadian friend, Ecklipze. We actually just did an interview with Ecklipze, where he discussed this project and the upcoming album that Nox will be releasing. This track, “Payback”, is the first track off the album, which we now know will be titled F.E.A.R. A lot of different people have been experimenting with combining elements of dubstep and hip-hop/rap a good amount in the passed year and a half or so, but this is probably one of the most effectively done tracks fusing the two genres I’ve heard yet. I’ll just let you guys see if you feel the same though.
Everyone seems to be in a big hub-bub about the new Mumford & Sons album that was just recently released. So I thought I would share with you guys the new State Hospital EP from Scotish folk-rock band Frightened Rabbit. The band’s sound is definitively different from that of Mumford and Son’s- it’s a lot less poppy for one thing- while also still maintaining a large amount of similar elements. I feel confident that if you are to like one, you’ll probably like the other. I’m going to share the title (and first) track off the new EP with you guys, and I urge you to explore the rest of the album! Enjoy!
Among a slew of filthy new tracks today was this new remix from Gentlemen Thieves. I think this is actually the first track I’m bringing to you guys from the New York based producer, and it’s certainly going to leave a good impression. It’s been one of those days when I feel like I’ve been lacking some heavy filth, so I thought I’d share this one with you guys so it can brighten up your days as it did to mine! Good news is you can pick it up right down there completely FREE!! Enjoy!!
