Two of my favorite demolition teams from the Bay Area, punching out their own chunks of the bass music scene, are the rattling sounds of Supreme & Megalodon. They each have had their own feature on CYV, here & here. They are back at it again with airtime on one of the globe’s #1 music streams, the boys have had their recent remix for Koan Sound rinsed out by none other than Brown & Gammon on BBC 1Extra Daily Dose of Dubstep. Here is a clip of the track going off, stand up Bay Area and support local artists! Repost this link and spread the sound!

The music-sphere is occasionally graced by a talent not only sought after and loved by fans, but respected and feared by colleagues and competition. Wether you like em’ or don’t care, these acts do their thing in a style and manner that is all their own. Daft Punk, Skream, Starkey, Chromeo, Burial, Jack Beats, Flying Lotus, these are all “producers’ producers” (pardon my simple terms). They have such unique sounds that almost no matter who you are, you have got to give them props. Recently a young Los Angeles export has set up shop in the greater San Francisco area and the music he has been making across the soundscape has received almost nothing but praise from some of the biggest names.
We first ran into Supreme when he hosted a Save Sunday, but since then the boy has gone crazy. Dropping an official remix for UK dubstep icon Dream is the most recent of his accomplishments on a long roster of feats including tours in Australia and the United States (Sydney, Brisbane, Denver, San Francisco). A top charting debut EP entitled Grimey rounds off just a few of the reasons why you should keep an ear and eye out for this local badman. Catch him lurking around, leveling clubs throughout the Bay.
Finish it off with a free download of the Supreme Zest Mix and you are good to go.
A friendly musician is a relief, let me tell you. Someone who lives on planet earth with the rest of us and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. It’s like when you nod at someone in public and they nod back. Of course some people can get away with flipping you the bird, but hey that’s life. Dark Elixir hails from Manchester and has been steadily dealing out demolishing tracks for a few years now. Totally approachable, the rising trip-hop/bass music producer has sorted CYV with a heavy drumstep track for free download! As always, lurk the music and tell your friends.
Watchout CYV’ers, we got bangerangs INCOMING. Its a whopper of a remix by Minus for DJ Hyper off his upcoming album ‘The Panic”. It starts slow .. and then without warning .. its becomes a full on assualt of lightsaber bass – think Terravita. Track could have used a switchup for the second drop but Minus is definitely one to watchout for – myspace – twitter.
Round 2 of the assault comes from Hungary with ‘Beatman and Ludmilla’ taking their turn at the remix. It feels more like the original but with a bassline that’ll make Charlie Sheen shift into second gear.
Ricorb is oozing with talent. His unique and diverse blend of cross-genre sounds place him high in my list of up-and-coming producers. I’ve dabbled with other genre’s in my short-lived production career, but have never achieved such prowess over the stereo space. His unique take on Jam City’s ‘Magic Drops’ opened my eyes to a squelchy and bubbling take on drumstep. The bassline guzzles you right up, spitting you out front row and center to the world’s first bass-driven slurpee machine. This wonky and broken track, seemly classified as ‘Dribblestep,’ might just send you on a bender. Or, it might have you cross-eyed in front of a mirror, as you ask yourself, ‘How did I get here?’ I’m not sure whether to bust out a mean two step, or to melt into a couch whilst sippin’ on some real proper lean. Dare I say the sounds are a bit silly? Perhaps I’m into that. Perhaps you are too?
His latest track, entitled ‘UK Gunky’ is somber and creepy, but it’s progression reveals that there is more to the journey than just heavyhearted, wandering synth trails. There is a light at the end of the tunnel after all, and it’s emanating confident portions of bass!
And this last one was revolutionary for me. I’ve known about Squire of Gothos for awhile — their intensely off-kilter and wonky wobbles didn’t resonate with me until I willingly dove into fidget. Anyways, Ricorb took this beast, flipped it, dipped it, and revealed one of my favorite dubstep tracks of all time. Just wait till 3:04 when the BPM drops and shit gets real gangster, REAL FAST. Get low girl, get low.
