♫ Chase And Status ft. Delilah – Time (RIOT 87 Remix) / This song is a banger that will grind at all your senses.  Its like RIOT 87 smashed dubstep and rock into a garbage disposal and created gold.  Thank you RIOT 87.  MORE PLEASE.

♫ Hussle Club – Loose Tights (Flinch Remix) / 1.) The intro feels like your sunny day just might be in danger of some stormy weather.  2.) The calm before the storm….  3.) Don’t get sea sick because you’re in for a wavy ride.

Joel & Scotts Top 10 Dubstep Remixes 2010

Alright our fellow face melters, its about time for us @ TBE to drop that Dub Top 10 list on you.

So, 2010 was a huge year for the genre dubstep right?  We (Joel & Scott) were recently thinking, we haven’t seen a new genre completely change the music landscape like this since grunge-rock in the early 90’s.  Given that we love getting Nurdy as hell everywhere we go, we like where this is going..  Back to the list…  While, this is the list we settled on, our top 5 could have been easily ordered in any way like bobbin for apples.  Anyway, we’re not going to lie people, we would love to sit here and explain our list to you, but its Friday night and we’re feeling its about time to get going on that crunk juice.

It’s a new year and a lot of good stuff piled up over the holidays. Considering it’s the 18th Digest, today is the 18th (close enough…), and I have 18 tracks, I think this is some kind of perfect Digest or something. Dig in. But really, dig. There are some real gems in the mix down there.

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Passion Pit – All These Trees / Passion Pit drop a new one through American Express ZYNC. I keep waiting for the song to start but it ends up being all build, no climax. Still nice to hear our boys back in the mix.

♫ BRAHMS – Add It Up / New BRAHMS track isn’t my favorite of theirs but I have to say, seeing them at The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festval last month was a Read more

The 25 Best Songs of 2010… Since Then (July-Dec.)

Here it is, for better or worse, for agreement or not, my list of the top 25 jams that rocked and/or rolled my ass during the second half of 2010. This is the 4th such list in TBE history and by far the most quality collection. There were  so many tracks that didn’t make the cut, and so many more that I think should be ranked higher. Can’t put ’em all in the top 10, now can I? Anyway, like all my lists, the ranking is loose. The quality, however, is tight as a drum… a tom-tom drum, perhaps…

25. ♫ Wiz Khalifa – Black & Yellow / Annnnd, this is why we don’t do year end lists before the YEAR ENDS. A late entry to my iTunes and an instant favorite. Swagger city up in this one! Push to start!

24. ♫ Fabolous – You Be Killin Em / Naw, Fabo, YOU be killen ’em. Niiice.

23. ♫ Muscles – Girl Crazy Go / Should be called “Brandon Crazy Go” cause that’s what happens. It’s like Read more
