Dubstep Roundup Vol. 1 / 9.24.2010 / Joel & Scott present: M83, Ellie Goulding, Steed Lord, and more!

ATTENTION PLEASE: This is for those who love to get NURDY

As we write this its Friday night and we’re all hopped up on coffee and beer (last Friday). This is Vol. 1 of our new “Dubstep Roundup” series that we will unleash twice a month to pump some dubstep life support into those who fiend.  Below we have compiled a beginners list of some of our favorite dubstep remixes of the past year or so to start you off.

Enjoy, but carry on with caution.

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.

♫ M83- We Own The Sky (Udachi Dubstep Edit) / Whats going?  Whats going on?  This song is funking dazzling.  Snowboard videos always have legendary music and the video “That’s It That’s All” introduced us to “We Own the Sky” a few years back.  When we saw that it was being remixed we weren’t all keyed up about it………… But Udachi can be our wing man any day with masterpieces like this one.  Much praise.

♫ Ellie Goulding – Starry Eyed (Jakwob Remix) / When this song first comes on its dreamy.  I imagine Im dancing with a beautiful girl under the stars.  Then 1:00 hits and I open my eyes to see there is an entire dance floor full of madness right in front of my eyes.  So I leave her.

♫ The Streets – Blinded By The Lights (Nero Remix) / Everything about this song was already serious, (if you haven’t seen the video for the original song, look it up) and then Nero warped it into a disturbingly crunchy dubstep track.  So, get drunk and whatever else it is that you do… and turn it up.

♫ Paramore – CrushCrushCrush (Slof Man Dubstep remix) / First off, Paramore blows and we understand that nobody comes to this blog to see any of their shiet.  The reason we decided to include this song in our first Dubstep roundup was show what a skilled remix artist is capable of.  This noise is much more than just listenable.  Don’t take our word for it, download it and see.

♫ Aloe Blacc – I Need A Dollar (The Killabits Remix) / I need a dubber dubber, a dubber thats what I need, hey hey!  Killabits are guilty of taking Aloe Blacc’s amazing song and giving it a beautiful bass lift.  Enough said, press play and turn it up.

♫ Steed Lord – Bed Of Needles (AKS & Syndaesia Remix) / Better grab yourself a diaper and hold on to something tight because what AKS & Syndaesia did to this song is going to make you straight poop yourself.  And if you’ve never heard of the Icelandic group known as Steed Lord, consider this a warning.

♫ 12th Planet & Juakali – Reasons (Doctor P Remix) / CAUTION FLASHING LIGHTS: not for the faint of heart.  This remix is filthier than wearing used undies, easily receiving our Mr. Yuck sticker for the roundup.

♫ Blue Foundation – Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Remix) / Blue Foundation’s Eyes On Fire has been gracefully brought into the bass world by the hands of Canadian duo Zed’s Dead.  This one has been haunting our dreams for a while now, and we like it.  Bass induced night terrors anyone?  Yes please.

    Lovin that Streets remix – I like that Nero didn’t feel the need to mess too much with it, it still feels like the same track.

    Why do you think that dubstep seems to work better as remixes of tunes rather than original creations – the only original track I can think of on this early Saturday morning is that (distinctly average) Katy B track (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNhPYj-5rIY – although I’m sure purists will declare its not really dubstep).

    I agree 100% about The Streets remix. I also agree that dubstep seems to work for remixes best, but there are some great originals. Stay tuned..

    I heard ‘We own the Sky’ in the same context as you.. in a snowboard video! I think it was “That’s it that’s all”. something about the visual narrative really spoke to me and that particular night is when i did the edit of the original, the song sent me goosebumps so i just wanted to maximize that feeling in the most straightforward way.

    Thanks for posting! The original is amazing, and way better than mine i just added some harsh drums and bass so it would bump on a soundsystem. Check out my other stuff and feel free to post them as-well, if you like it ^______^

    Wow I’m really taken aback. I’m a cinematographer and I did some work on TITA. Thanks to all of you that watched our film. Glad you liked our music choice. I just got done on a ski film called Revolver. I had a lot of input on the soundtrack and something tells me you guys will like it. Thanks alot boys and girls.
