Alex Clare

27 Jul

I made an excellent discovery today as I was going through my daily blog/forum lists for new tunes. Alex Clare is a singer from London that is bringing some soul to EDM. His voice sounds similar to Dan Auerbach’s (of The Black Keys) and it sounds awesome over solid dubstep produced by Diplo and Switch. Check this out and find more on Alex’s soundcloud.

Alex Clare- Too Close

Das Racist

31 Mar

Coming out of Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2008, Das Racist is one of the most diverse and unique hip-hip groups I’ve heard in a while. Comprised of Queens- born Himanshu Suri (aka Heems) and San Francisco- born Victor Vazquez (aka Kool A.D.), Das Racist is best known for their hilarious sense of humor, unconventional style, and obscure references; rapping about, among many other things, being brown and Pizza Hut/Taco Bell. Regardless, these Jokesters are no Joke when it comes to hip-hop, and even have support from notable artists like Diplo and Scoop DeVille. Check out these tracks from their mixtapes “Sit Down, Man” and “Shut Up, Dude”. Some fire. Shoots.

Tiesto vs. Diplo feat. Busta Rhymes- C’Mon (Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano Remix)

17 Mar

This is a crazy song. I came across this tune yesterday, and at first listen it blew me away. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are up and comers in electronic music and clearly they have the skill to rise up with the biggest names. This “C’Mon” remix reminds me a lot of Laidback Luke’s enormous track, “My God”. Get your St. Patty’s day shenanigans started with a banger!

So, WEST LA CNCT will be attending the Major Rager event this Saturday! I came across this new Dillon Francis remix and I figured I would post it since it is relevant to the event. It’s a solid dubstep mix of DWNTWN’s “Transition” that’s definitely on the groovier side of the genre. Check it out and we’ll see you Saturday!

Sleigh Bells- Tell ‘Em (Diplo Remix)

25 Jan

Diplo has just finished putting together a classy remix of Sleigh Bell’s “Tell Em”.  He adds tons of eclectic sounds which give the track a classic Diplo character.  It features heavy drums, a cut-up vocal breakdown, and the smooth vocal stylings of Alexis Krauss.  Great remix!

Mansions On The Moon is a new up and coming group of three artists, Lane Shaw and Ben Hazlegrove (of Pnuma Trio), along with singer/songwriter, Ted Wendler. Currently, they are working on a debut album in Los Angeles and are announcing its release, along with tour dates, early next year. They released a remix album, Paradise Falls, presented by Diplo and DJ Benzi, which can be streamed and downloaded here. Mansions On The Moon’s musical capabilities have a lot of potential with their electronic sound, unique from any other, combined with aesthetically pleasing atmospheric vocals. They are certainly a group to look out for in the future! Here’s a taste of their remix album…

Vocal Dubstep: Sunday Girl (Ft. Rusko, Diplo)

28 Oct

Sunday Girl, also known as Jade Williams, is just a 21-year-old singer from the U.K. When she first dabbled with the idea of being a vocalist, she would sing in the privacy of her own room, too afraid to sing in front of anyone. Her fear overtook her so much so that at the age of 17, her mom took her to a hypnotist to cure her irrationalities. If it wasn’t for her smart mother, she would not be coming through our speakers today. The U.K. publication, The Gaurdian, describes her sound as, “melancholic yet uplifting,” which proves to be a perfect combination with dubstep music. Reminiscent of Ellie Goulding, Sunday Girl can definitely stand her ground with her aim to “feel like a wall of beautiful sound,” which she executes perfectly.(One to watch: Sunday Girl) I’ve included a new release as well as an older track, both with a soothing mellow vibe, enjoy!

Deadmau5 performed an unreleased dubstep remix with a singer named Robyn at the VMA’s last month on MTV! Here’s the only version (a ripped edit) on the internet of the song!
