Bass (Minnesota, Produce & Destroy, Flinch)

5 Jun

So much music to post, so little time. The new Minnesota track and the Produce & Destroy remix are definitely the gems of this post, but if you want something heavier, Flinch should do the trick.

Adele- Rolling in the Deep Remixes

17 May

This post was inevitable. It seems everyone wants a piece of the very talented blueswoman’s mega hit “Rolling in the Deep”. As a result, some impressive remixes have been released over the last few months. Here are a few of my favorites.

First up is solid dubstep remix by MartyParty and Minnesota’s new project, Darkstar. This remix is heavy and melodic–everything I want dubstep to be.

Next is a crazy mash by The Heatwave. It gives Adele’s song a complete spin into a summertime, island, reggae jam.

Adele & Jamie XX vs Cecile, Mr Lexx & Timberlee- Rolling In The Heat (The Heatwave Refix)

 

Last is my favorite house remix which comes courtesy of up-n-commer David Berrie. The buildups are long and the drop is hard. Expect this one at Sharkeez tonight ladies and gentlemen! (Party begins every Tuesday, 10 pm, at 3600 Highland Ave, Manhattan Beach)

Sander Van Doorn- XX Booty (Minnesota RMX)

25 Mar

With every release, Minnesota impresses me more and more. He has been a WEST LA CNCT favorite for a while now and he just keeps getting better. He put his own dubstep style to Sander Van Doorn’s “XX Booty,” and the result was some excellent bass music. Turn up your speakers and give Minnesota the bass and volume he deserves!

The Beatles- Because (GoldRush Remix)

20 Jan

This Beatles remix is my first run-in with Goldrush, but I’m impressed!  The intro is phenomenal; it begins with strong beat mixed with classic guitar, then smoothly transitions into hypnotic vocals by the catchiest band ever.  For eight minutes, the track swaps between calming instrumental and vocal sections and metallic, raygun dubstep synths.  The contrast works wonderfully!

Bonus:
“Because” was released under Gruntworthy’s “Future Bass” compilation.  Here are two more tracks off the compilation that deserve recognition:

Stephan Jacobs’ addition of  “Notorious Thugs” vocal samples over his own track, “Nano Puppy” is fire!  West Coast glitch at its finest. Must have!
Samples & Stephan Jacobs – Nano Puppy (Stephan’s Bone Thug’s re-edit)***

Finally, Minnesota mastered his remix of “Let Love Grow” for this compilation. Definitely worth a re-download.

Minnesota-Let Your Love Grow

29 Dec

Christian Bauhofer, otherwise know an Minnesota, is quickly becoming one of my favorite dubstep artists. His productions are catchy and unique. Also, the songs he chooses to remix are amazing, and he does each of them a great service by editing them in a way which is unique and inventive.

His latest production, “Let Your Love Grow”, is class. From the industrial style drums to the ragga vocals, the track shows incredible talent. Kick back and let the deep bass and smooth synths swirl inside your ears.

The Mamas & the Papas- California Dreamin’ (Minnesota Remix)

28 Dec

Minnesota is at it yet again with this remix of “California Dreamin'”. In this track, he brings a Joker-style synth with excellent editing of the original Mamas and Papas song. There hasn’t been much quality music released lately, so big ups to Minnesota for putting this track up for download! Enjoy.

Minnesota

23 Nov

I love finding excellent artists before they blow up, and Christian Bauhofer, the man who goes by the name Minnesota, is a very talented DJ and producer out of Santa Cruz, California, who might just do so. He states in his biography that his “goal is to make bass heavy dubstep/glitch-hop music that’ll get you dancing, but is not the same old, 3 note transformer-step…. I try to focus more on the melodic side of dubstep, and hopefully, make quality song writing a more relevant factor in the genre.” He is certainly becoming that relevant factor he strives for and has already had a great deal of success being been billed with some of the best producers in the business including Flying Lotus, Rusko, Benny Benassi, Ghostland Observatory, RJD2, Datsik, Excision, Skrillex and many more. He has even sold out the famous venue in Santa Cruz, the Catalyst, and he will undoubtedly sell out many other venues to come. I recommend you take these two awesome tracks that he was nice enough to give away for free on his soundcloud!
