Kill The Noise (Alvin Risk Remix)

Alvin Risk

For the third and final installment of the “Alvin Risk kicks ass series” this week, I bring you a deep, electro-house remix that will beat you below sea level.  Remixing fellow OWSLA steppers, Kill The Noise, Alvin Risk brings back a new take on deep house with a few signature electro elements you’ve come to expect from the rapidly rising producer.  This one is much deeper in attitude that the past two tracks of his I’ve shared this past week, but shows one hell of a range in sound.  Keep em comin’ Alvin.

Alvin Risk

More! More! Alvin Risk is absolutely on fire!  Following up his “Dirty Dancer” remix from early this week, this rising (perhaps shooting) star is back with another absolutely house-rocking banger.  Bringing in the hardcore moombahton/dubstep combo again, Alvin Risk has found the perfect formula to craft the post-modern dance song.  The breakdown in this song packs in sounds resembling both Major Lazer’s epileptic dance beats and Skrillex’s deep-bass synths.  If you like this, I’ve got yet another one from Alvin Risk coming later tonight.  Stay (fine) tuned and keep on the beat, baby.

Skrillex & The Doors – Breaking A Sweat

Skrillex The Doors

Through the melding of sound waves, guitar strings, drum beats, organ keys, and vocal ambiance, generational icons meet for a collaboration defining the ages.  A 30+ year gap is brought together as the 23-year-old Skrillex met with classic rock icons, The Doors.  What resulted is nothing short of a masterpiece.  The Doors’ ground-breaking melodic sound from the 1970’s meets with the hard bass lines of modern dubstep forerunner, Skrillex, to make a perfect example of music’s timeless nature.  There was an energy created in this song that is here to stay and shape redefinition, as it did in the past.  Look for this track amongst other legendary collaborations in DJ Premier’s RE:Generation project.

I’m lovin’ this new wave of moombahton/dance remixes coming out from the biggest rising stars in the dubstep/electro game.  Alvin Risk delivers the perfect combination of electrification and feel-good grooves in this soon-to-be hit from Oh My.  For those of you that may have never been exposed to Alvin Risk before, this is the perfect crossover song.  This one is sure to appeal to dubstep, moomba, and pop fans alike.  Monday be damned, it’s never too early to get groovin’.

Skrillex – Kyoto (Feat. Sirah) [Disics Extended Mix]

I think I may have listened to this song over 25 times today.  And considering I woke up at 1, today has been short.  Why yes, that is “Ruffneck Bass” in the background (not “Ruffneck”).  Doing what he does best, Skrillex takes one of his own extremely popular unreleased tracks and chops and bends it till you can’t stop moving.  Per usual with these unreleased tracks, I’ve thrown up a high quality extended mix, this time from Disics (Thank you!).  This track rocks a sort-of moombah/dub flow that even a lot of “anti-brostep” crybabies might appreciate.  Then, as if dropped down upon these waveforms by the swift hand of the gods, Sirah comes in to absolutely tear apart a verse.  Yes, that’s right, hardcore female rapping and dubstep.  What more could you ask for? Oh yeah: Yo Skrill, drop it hard.

LMFAO – Sexy And I Know It (The Mavrik Remix)

DUBAWUBA! Who’s that sexy remix!?  Mavrik, that’s who.  It was only a matter of time before someone nailed this one on in true dubstep style.  This hard remix of todays favorite pop-house song is packed with hardtysle dubstep wobbles, hilarious sound samples, and of course those eloquent vocals from LMFAO.  Well, eloquence may be an overindulgence in description.  But sexy? You know it.

Skrillex – Swing My Money (Savage vs. Caspa) (Mashup)

Posted in Dubstep, Mashups with tags , , on November 16, 2011 by dissonantcognitions


Legitimately been stuck in my head all day.  Skrillex flexes his DJ muscle and throws together some UK dubstep from Caspa and the ever-popular “Swing” by Savage.  If you’ve had the experience of seeing him live like myself, you may have experienced him dropping this tune in the set list.  Due to the fact that the actual recording of Skrillex’s is an unreleased mashup, DJ Vation was nice enough to provide us all with this identical rendition.  Who says mashups are only for crap college rappers?
