The last time we posted about The Killabits, they changed up their sound a bit to take us back to the sound that originally got us into this scene. Well, today they decided to change the game yet again, saying this on their Facebook page: “Spent a while experimenting with a bunch of different sounds and ideas to try to make something completely different, something unlike anything else.” Once again they try for something different and totally knocked it out of the ballpark! This isn’t the sound I would usually expect from The Killabits, but it works, and it just gets me more excited for what kind of surprises they’ll have for us next! The song will be available for download soon, so check back and we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, forget what you’re used to, and enjoy this new direction of bass music!
Here is an artist I’m really excited to be introducing you all to today! MarsPluto is an up-and-coming producer out of Dallas, TX, and even though you probably haven’t heard of him before today, it was bound to happen eventually. This guy has loads of passion and talent for music, and it shows. Unfortunately, he only has one track for us today, but he’s kept us in the loop on some of his secrets, and man, I am really excited for what he’ll be sending our way in the near future. Today though, in the Christmas spirit, MarsPluto has decided to give away his newest remix of Borgore’s hit “Ice Cream”, absolutely FREE! Crank up those speakers, enjoy, and if you like what you hear, check the links below to show MarsPluto some love!
We have another treat for you today, this one coming from Philly native and Glitch Squad member, Architekt. This Glitch Squad release, the Detonator EP, is a 3-track EP featuring an original mix and two remixes, yet covers quite a wide range of the EDM subgenres. The Architekt’s original mix has that heavy, glitched out sound that we have come to love so much, and fellow Philly natives, The Nineties, take a different approach, giving the song a great Drum and Bass/Drumstep vibe that’s sure to pull you out of your seat to start raging. Finally, the 3rd track by Atlas gives a nice change of pace for all of our house/trance fans, with a smooth progressive house remix! The EP is available on Glitch Squad’s Bandcamp with the option to name your own price. While it’s always nice to pick up some free tunes, be sure to support the artists when you get the chance! We’ve seen incredible things happen to the local scene here in Philly over the past few years, so lets continue to contribute by using some of that newly acquired Christmas money to buy some killer tunes that are well worth it!
I simply can’t pass up an opportunity to post a new tune from Jakwob, and while this one isn’t really our typical forte, it’s still solid gold. This time he’s remixed “She” by Laura Mvula, into an eased-back downtempo sort of track, with quite a bit of glitch influence, and all that really deeeeeep Jakwob bass I’ve come to love. I guess we’ll just call this one another holiday treat; and keep in mind you can grab it up totally FREE! Enjoy!!
There’s really one true way to say thanks sincerely, and Happpy Holidays to all our followers. How’s that? Well how about a solid 2 hours of bass destruction from Philadelphia DJ and producer, Dubsef. This mix is totally
chocked full of the hugest tunes from the past year, resulting in one of the most massive mixes I’ve heard in some time. I seriously challenge you to oppose me on that. Now, I’ll stop talking, and you start listening. Happy Holidays!!
Here’s a young producer who’s been getting a lot of hype recently, and who we’ve also been slacking on posting music from. So here’s to us making it up to you guys. Luminox literally just tossed up this fresh trap VIP mix of his tune “Who’s Gonna Stop Us”. Now, I haven’t heard the original, but what I can tell it must have been one heck of a fresh dubstep tune. So what we get, is a blend of the two genres, a super huge bassed out track full of wobbles, with all the wonderful rattling 808s still going on in the undertow. It’s truly a great combination.
I know I’ve been anticipating this for some time now, and Speaker for the Dead has truly delivered. His new So This Is Human Life EP delves into some of the freshest glitch-hop beats that have yet to meet our ears. The mini album features four new tracks, all bassy and dancey, but each in a totally different way. It’s really difficult to bind this EP to a single genre, because the reality is that it surveys a wide variety of bass music subsidaries. “Neon Kicks” and “So This Is Human Life” are pretty hard and heavy bass tunes, with a pretty dark undertone that creeps its way through the tracks; while, “Rainbow Drops” pretty much describes its sound with the title, a more upbeat and groovy tune; and finally “Gray Ghosts” brings the tempo down to a very minimal feel, before launching a wall of bass at you somewhat unexpectedly. The album is available through Ill Pill Recordson both Beatportand iTunestoday! Be sure to give it a listen over, and as always, enjoy!!
I’ve been following Supreme for quite some time now, and I have to say what I really enjoy about his music is that he stays true to his sound. Even with the influx of bass music artists gravitating towards attempting to make their music as “heavy” or “filthy” as possible, Supreme keeps the dubstep to dubstep. It’s the classic dub sound that if you’ve been with the music for some time now, I’m sure you’re going to really appreciate. And of course, Supreme knows how to get fun with it; this track gets particularly nice right about 2:45. Enjoy!!
Sometimes I have a slow start to my Mondays, and I’ve found there’s never really a better way to get my day kick started than with a fresh breakfast serving of dirty bass. Well I think this new track from Ascendance should definitely be on the menu. He dropped his new track “Instability”- featuring guest vocals from CoriPena- on Beatport today, along with three remixes from various other producers. Swing over to the Beatport page HERE to view the full tracklist, but allow Funkadelphia to personally recommend Jack Deezl‘s remix; and not just because he’s a Funkadelphia frequent flyer, but because this remix absolutely destroys!! So there you go, two fresh new bassed out tracks. Eat up!
The day is finally upon us, and I couldn’t be more happy. Circus Records just released their latest record label compilation, The Shady Bunch EP. The album features new releases from all our Circus favorites, including Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, Roksonix, Funtcase, Cookie Monsta, Brown & Gammon, and a couple new friends too! And although they’re not the two faces of the label, Funtcase and Cookie both absolutely annihilated their tracks, leaving the Funkadelphia stunned in a wall of filthy, jaw-dropping bass. We’ve included almost all the tracks for you to preview below, but be sure to head over to the Circus Website to pick up your own personal copy of the EP!
