Flux Pavilion & Doctor P – “Superbad” Official Video

Posted in Dubstep, Experimental with tags , , , on December 13, 2011 by dissonantcognitions

Such a ridiculous video to go with a ridiculous song.  Actual instruments and jazz-funk style recording from dubstep artists?  “Superbad” itself is probably the strangest sounding song to come out of the Doctor P & Flux factory to date but hey, I’m not dumping on innovation.  Seems to me that this is just meant to be a novel piece of enjoyment, so smile and rock along to the weird.


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.

T-Top – Sleepwalking

Posted in Electronic, Experimental with tags , , , on November 15, 2011 by dissonantcognitions


Feast your sleepy heads on this trippy little ensemble.  Bringing a sound reminiscent of bare-bones electronic roots, T-Top provides a beautiful little piece of production that tickles my experimental fancy.  What makes this work in progress beautiful is that it doesn’t try to be anything that it’s not.  The production value is crisp and to the point, not trying to throw in any unfitting noise or distortion.  The sound is very reminiscent of what you would expect a dream or an old-school video game to sound like.   Always nice to see some experimentation with electronic roots.

R.N. Berretta – Revolution Rising

R.N. Berretta

Warning: this is not your standard Fine Tuned track.  If you’re looking for your typical electro song, this is not it.  However, if you are looking for something entirely new and mind-blowing, I dare you to venture further.  R.N. Berretta has sent some floor-bumping mashups our way since Fine Tuned’s initial launch, but this is a whole new game for us and for him.  This is a different category of musical innovation that does not yet have a definition.  If you have any appreciation for true musical prowess, then I have no doubts you will be as engrossed in these sound waves as I am.  Looking forward to more original pieces from this one.
