We’re ba-a-a-a-ack……

We’re sorry to inform you that the little tiny dude inside your ears is about to get bitch-slapped, gut checked, and probably even kicked in the nuts a little bit.  So, I hope your eardrums are ready because this shit is about to get devastating.  Ohhh yeah, and Mr. Yuck is back too.

This week, we, Joel & Scott and The Burning Ear, bring you: Dubstep Roundup Volume II.

So, go ahead, sink your teeth into this tasty bass, but as always, proceed with caution.

♫ Major Lazer- Never Good Enough (The Killabits Remix) / O.k., you’re  welcome.  Cuz this ones good enough for everyone.  Talk about a major bass lift by the Killabits.

♫ Jinder- Youth Blood (12th Planet Flinch Remix) / This song is straight Tits.  From 12th Planet & Flinch’s high pitched electro sounds mixed with the ins and outs of that dub bass.  Eargasms….  L.A. has two of the finest dubbers around.

[MP3] Bedouin Soundclash & Coeur de Pirate

I stumbled across Bedouin Soundclash for the first time in a couple years in the midst of inserting the Coeur de Pirate song in last weeks “Remix roundup”.  Thank Tom Cruise I did too, because after nearly breaking up in 2007 and dumping their drummer the Soundclash are back with vengeance.

Case and Point:

cuz if you’re looking for love, you can look for that door

♫ Bedouin Soundclash- Brutal Hearts (Ft Coeur de Pirate) / This collaboration with Coeur de Pirate was  the first single released on the new album, Light The Horizon.  This song describes a man’s honest, dark search for those superficial intimate moments with another, and the realization that he’s not proud of living this way, but continues to do so (Thank you, Bedouin Soundclash for describing my romantic life).  This is easily one of my new favorite songs.

♫ Bedouin Soundclash- Mountain Top / Is definitely the pick me up, exhilarating song of the album and has a rad music video that fans were able to participate in as extras.

Don’t forget their 2004 breakthrough single…

[MP3] IN GRENADA go the DISTANCE AND fill me with TEMPTATION

take me, take me away

♫ In Grenada – Distance And Temptation

If the opening 10 seconds on this jam doesn’t get your hips swinging then you need serious psychological help (or hip replacements). Well, the hip swinging-ness just keeps on coming as “Distance and Temptation” gets steadily groovier and more spastically danceable. Their debut LP Break is out now and I haven’t dug in yet but based on this jam I’m looking forward to good times!

[MP3] THEM:YOUTH are giving me the best kind of TOOTHACHE with their new sweet sweet jam

i’ll keep you high on a heartbeat

Toothache by them:youth /// Courtesy of Them:Youth and the excellent folks at Outlaw Freelancers [watch]

Them:Youth hit my ears a few months back with their first single “Fever Rising” and they they have upped the ante big time with their second jam, “Toothache.” Dance-ache is more like it! This is a swelling sea of energy topped with a tornado of spinning synths and machine gun beat that would do any strobe light proud. These Brits are on tour through the UK at the moment and I have a feeling that this is a live show worth getting sweaty to. I am digging this jam so much I even gave in to their request to embed that downlader widget above instead of hosting the track on TBE. So listen in Soundcloud if you must or just take some good advice and get to the downloading! You will want this on your running/dancing/driving/getting hyped/vacuuming playlist for sure! Catch the video after the jump!

[MP3] FOX IN THE HENHOUSE have put aside their FEARS of change

patience hits the furthest mark, the more you get the less you’ll spark

♫ Fox in the Henhouse – Fears

Fox In The Henhouse is a pretty great name for these guys because this musi definitely feels like stumbling upon something pretty great. Their 3 track The Fox EP is out now and contains “Fears” with it’s twangy swagger and playful vocals all wrapped in an extremely sing-alongable series of “oooh ooooohs,” plus a horn solo! The EP also sports “Up (Change)” which is all full steam bounce and stomp that instantly gets my limbs moving. The Baltimore based group has been around only a year but already have a full length coming out this month. If these two tracks are any indication then we are in for a treat!

Remix Roundup Vol. 27 – 10.1.2010 / Joel and Scott present [Robyn, Memory Tapes, The Killers, and more!]

It’s Friday and you all know what that means….  We, Joel and Scott are back to fill your eardrums with some epic jams.  As you know our cold lockers are packed to the gills with devastatingly heavy dubstep sounds.  More than the same can easily be said about our non-dubstep chunes.  In fact, we are getting harassed for disturbing the peace and toxic contamination of our surrounding environment by our local environmental officials.  Oooops.

Shout out to all the support we been receiving from Copenhagen to New York and around the world.  We love hearing from you guys.

Nyd Det, Disfrute, Enjoy

For more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!  Follow @JoelAlbers on Twitter for updates on remixes, dubstep and all things Nurdy.

♫ Coeur de Pirate – Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix) / We always heard growing up that boys care more about beats and melodies, and girls pay more attention to lyrics and such.  The truth is that we don’t understand a damn word this girl is singing, but we couldn’t care less because this is nothing short of magic.  So, for now the theory stands.

♫ Robyn- Dancing On My Own (Buzz Junkies Club Mix) / Hailing from the UK buzz Junkies remind us here why we started listening to electronic music.  From the house beat to the flashes of old school techno, this song is right up our alley.  This friends is a proper dance tune.  (BTW its Friday so enjoy)

♫ Big Boi- Shutterbug (Jack Beats Remix) / We stumbled upon this the other day and flipped shit.  Jack Beats have tackled a giant of a tune.  Big Boi’s Shutterbug is one of the nastiest we’ve heard from the rap game in a long time.  So we thank you, Jack Beats, for bringing it to our dance floor.

♫ Memory Tapes- Bicycle (Little Loud Remix) / Ahhh yes.  Like a brisk jog on a fall morning this song just hits the spot and starts your day right.

♫ The Girls Can Hear Us- Drugs, Dancin’ (The Dirty Tees & SposhRock Remix) / Don’t be surprised to hear this remix in the clubs as The Dirty Tees & SposhRock do their damage and turn this track into electro club heat.  And lets be frank, everyone loves a song about the Rock-Star lifestyle of sex, drugs, and Rock N’ Roll (in this case, dancing).

♫ The Killers- Smile Like You Mean it [TGIK Broken Heart Mix] / I sat here and thought of a very deep and meaningful description for this song, and then realized that a simple “WOW” would suffice.  This song has always been special, but it has taken on a new life here.  Boys and girls this is perfection.

♫ Deluka- Cascade (Kids At The Bar Remix) / OK Cities gnarly’st producer/DJ combo, Kids At The Bar, are constantly on the grind and never fail to deliver. Here we have another rug cutting remix of Deluka’s Cascade.  Look for KATB’s debut EP to drop sometime in October on KillPop Records, a must have.

♫ Rosanna- Waterfall (Fear Of Tigers Remix) / Inside this remix Glitter Pixies are flying over head and showering everyone with gold dust. Oh, and we both thought of Kelly Kapowski when this one dropped. Fear of Tigers, you hurt so good!

♫ Sneaky Sound System- 16 (Flight Facilities Remix) / What is already a knockout song has been sent to the next level via first class. Flight Facilities, playing well with Miss Connie Mitchell’s amazing vocals and providing 16 with a voluptuous new baseline leaves us with nothing but a smile when looking at, we mean listening to, this wholesome beauty. Enjoy!

♫ Kanye West- Power (DJ Kue Remix) / Here is an example of DJ Kue doing what he does best, banging the mainstream straight out and setting a tune on fire! Kanye West, amidst a super emo comeback, has a lot of new music dropping sure to be mixed, and so far we like what we hear.

♫ Supplicant- Lifeline (Kaskade Mix) / Supplicant, a brand new group based out of Hollywood, California, reminds us of a modern day Depeche Mode. So here we have new talent meeting legendary producer/DJ Kaskade. We don’t usually dip into this area but Kaskade’s touch is too much to ignore.

BONUS: Two mashup jams

♫ Lady Gaga vs Madonna- Alejang up (DJs From Mars Remix) / If you didn’t think it was possible  Djs from Mars prove here that there is room for music icons Lady Gaga and Madonna on the same track.  Are we fans…  lets just say we are haters of the Lady Gaga haters.  Another score for Djs from Mars.

♫ Kaskade vs. Swedish House Mafia- Fire In Your New Shoes vs. One / Kaskade vs. Superstar Dj trio Swedish House Mafia (Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sabastian Ingrosso) all on one track for your listening pleasure?  Yes please.  This mashup will provide you electrifying eargasms all night long.

Next Friday look forward to your bi-weekly slap in the face with Vol. 2 of our new “Dubstep Roundup” series.

[MP3] FRENCH HORN REBELLION have got me feeling THIS track in this MOMENT

but you’re so good, i don’t know what to do when you dance like that

♫ French Horn Rebellion – This Moment

We first posted on French Horn Rebellion over a year ago so this seems like a good *ahem* moment to check in with them. Well, the brothers from Brooklyn via Milwaukee just toured with Cut Copy and are finally releasing their debut LP The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion. “This Moment” showcases a tighter, more polished funk and groove that I am really feeling. The guys are perfectly layering twinkling chimes, bouncing bass-lines, and the requisite synth action. FHR are giving away another track, “Brasilia Girl,” on their MySpace but seeing as it’s rather ambient (read: boring) I’m guessing/hoping it’s some interstitial album track and is not a sign that they are giving up on good times. I say just play “This Moment” twice and just pretend you have two teaser tracks!

[MP3] LOCAL NATIVES are CLOTHED AND ready to OPEN your ears to more of their wide EYED jams

it angered me to hear that back in reality she had run into my friends

♫ Local Natives – Clothed And Open Eyed

Thanks to Frank at Audiomuffin for digging up two Local Natives bonus tracks! The franticly rollicking “Clothed and Open Eyed” is all the great instrument work and harmonizing that we expect from these guys! Another track awaits you over at Audiomuffin so get on that! Three cheers for more jams from one of my favorite bands of the year!
