Don’t care! – Wokezan

Wokezan, consisting of Dirk Phelps and Connor Wilson share some very similar interests in music taste as me. One thing I love about this blog is the artists that we are stumbling upon! These gents from Michigan create some sick guitar riffs and blend them with some heavy, yet groovy bass to please all of the cochlea in your ear.

Don’t care! beings with a hell of a riff which sets the tone on how in your face this track will be. It’s glitchy, heavy all this to make a bass head like myself happy.  They don’t let down for too long and really keep rhythm high. Give these guys a listen and you’ll be hooked just like I did!

Getcha Body Movin – SZOUL

SZOUL brings some unique sounds to the table, outside the box from the typical dark bass-rich boom this style of production usually yields. This track definitely did get my body moving today. Hailing from Chicago, this producer is just starting to dip his toes in the live music scene dabbling in and around New York. The sounds you hear on this track are all SZOUL, as he uses a multitude of instruments including piano, drums, bass, guitar and his voice for the music he creates. Cool feature, all his music is free – including this dope tune.

Zombie – The Cranberries (Subvert remix)

Its throwback time! The setting is at Shambhala music festival back in 2010. It was my first year and Sunday night was all about the village for me. Subvert, Nero and the mighty Bassnectar one after the other there was no way I was leaving. Subvert threw down one hell of a set and before he was done let us know he had one more track for us.

Shambhala is a special festival. There is a magical feeling on that ranch that you just don’t get anywhere else. Special moments happen only at Shambhala. This song was one of them. If you ask vets it might be one of the best ones.

Right when the song started playing everyone around my friend and I linked arms and began to sway back and forth singing the first verse. Everyone in the Village were linked together. You could feel all of our energies moving through each other. The build up to the course ramped the energy up and when the chorus explodes so did the Village. Just writing that gives me goosebumps.

Subvert did such an amazing job on this remix. Kept the dark mood of the original with bass that only elevates how emotional this song is. If you were in the Village that night here is a trip down memory lane.

Wubula – Dirt Monkey

Calling all Bass Heads!!! Time for some heavy hitting dubstep brought to you by Dirt Monkey! Hailing from Boulder his new album Wubula just got released! And this is some hot sh*t!!

The first song Mile High Club sets the tone for album in a big way. Energetic, and ya, you guessed it HEAVY! Wonky Kong has a Beavis sample so you know that its going to be good. Wubula brings that wub sound that is not in too many dubstep tracks these days (at least in my opinion).

Warning is a great track to really move to. The bpm is perfect to mash side to side. The drop in Slip n Slide reminds me of the first dub I listened to. That wub wub always gets me shoulders poppin!

Then its time to take off with Lift Off. If you see a title like that with a dubstep track you know you are in for a ride. A nice slow build up leading into a drop that will make dancefloors explode!! Hello bass face!!! Earthbound is next and  its glitchy/wobbly sound makes you want to distort into catatonic positions that might make people think you need medical help.

Space Jelly takes you down a dark windy road full of high frequencies, bass and probably aliens…..its about to get weird.

Parisian Punch is my favourite of the album. The beginning leaves you wondering where it is going to go, to be honest I thought there was going to be a little swing thrown in here. But then the drop hits and BOOM! Its glitchy, heavy, and awesome.

The album ends with Blow up the Spot and it does exactly that! Boulder has produced in different genres for the last 10 years, ranging from hip hop to break beat and he has been dipping into the bass and it is refreshing to the dubstep scene. Enjoy this album Bass Heads!

The album can found on spotify and on apple so here are their links:

Innocence – Nero

Its throwback time! Everyone can remember that one song that brought them into a new scene or genre of music. It’s a big moment as it really has the power to change you completely. Before 2010 bass and I didn’t get along too much. I was more into trance and hardstyle early in my rave days.

Then I was told by someone with great wisdom (thanks Watson) to come and see Nero. I trusted her and this was the song that made me think this whole dubstep thing is something I can get behind. Needless to say after that show a bass head was born! Now sporting the village stage on my arm it’s safe to say bass will always be a part of my life from here on in.

This song never gets old. It can still make a dance floor lose their mind. Enjoy this amazing tune!
