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.

Celldweller – Disposable War Pigs (Klashup)

Celldweller

Oh. My. God.  I think the metalhead in me just did a barrel roll.  While I pick my jaw off the floor, treat yourself to this dubbed-out “klashup” of greats from Metallica and Ozzy over a hot set of dubstep bass and beats.  This might as well be a mashup of my high school CD case.  This one goes out to all of you that wore all black, wallet chains, stud bracelets, band tee’s, skate shoes, and oversized spitfire hoodies.  Dubsteppers and old-school headbangers alike; respect and throw up the horns on this one. Rock on.

Korn – Narcissistic Cannibal (feat Skrillex and Kill the Noise)

Korn Skrillex Kill the Noise

Okay haters will hate per the usual, I get it.  A majority of Nu-Metal fans say Korn peaked in the 90’s and a majority of music fans say Nu-Metal was an abomination to the rock genre.  Perfect I say!  Dubstep has become the Nu-Metal of the electronic music scene, drawing both extreme fandom and hate from all sectors.  So why not combine the two?  If you haven’t heard the news yet, Korn will be collaborating with big name acts such as Skrillex, Kill the Noise, and more on a forthcoming dubstep-infused album.  I say this is a perfect move.  With Korn’s popularity flailing and dubstep’s popularity at a record high, why not sew together to two sister genres and bring a new life to the Nu-Metal titans of the 90’s.  If you’re not sold yet, listen to this track and the previously released “Get Up” (also featuring Skrillex).  Time to let the freak off the leash, boys.

Evanescence – Bring Me To Life (DJ Virus Club Mix)

Evanesence

Okay, I don’t care what you think about the long-lost Evanescence, this track is unreal.  Not only does Amy Lee have the perfect voice for this kind of stuff but the fast pace brings an undeniable flow to the song that would pack out any dance floor.  Personally, I loved Evanesence back in the day (even saw them live after Ben Moody left) but even if you dont, you’ll love this club banger.
