[STREAM] Skream – “Copy Cat” ft. Kelis

Skream Kelis COPY-CAT

i’m such a fan of your hair, that’s why i cut it

The track info say’s “Copy Cat” is Skream’s, the album art says Kelis’. Either way it’s an unlikely combination that puts both artists outside what they are known for and the end result is pretty undeniable. There is no milkshake motion or dubby crunch but the minimal blip bloop production hangs in the air like a fog, only being wafted aside by Kelis’ hushed vocals. I could definitely get behind more collaborations like this.

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 29 – 3.10.2012 [The SoniXx, The Roots, Skream, Guinevere, and more…]

Ch-ch-yeah.  Your favorite dub-dealer is back with those bass chunes.

Im down here in beautiful Austin, Tx (although the weather is miserably raining today) getting ready for our TBE Showcase.  This city takes on what is just an electric life during SXSW.  So many people and so much to do, the possibilites in this town are endless.  If you havent been, I highly recommend it.  Im about to go pick up Brandon up at the airport in about five minutes; which by the way, we’ve never met before.  I’ll update you on whether we want to punch each other in the faces tomorrow or not.

On with the jams.

[MP3/Video] Magnetic Man

I dont have a lot of time to write about this one, but I wanted share with you guys one of the most viewed music videos in the world right now.  Hot off their  October 4th album release, Magnetic Man (composed of dubstep pioneers Skream, Artwork, and Benga) are making world-wide waves with mainstream success.  Dubstep purist can complain if they want, but this is the type of circumstance where innovative artist can alter mainstream pop-culture.  And, yes this album lacks major dubstep bass, but one must remember that this isn’t a dubstep album.  This album is its own monster with its own sound, with influences from dubstep to trance.  Why don’t you be the judge, and listen to these tracks below.  Don’t forget to watch the video (after the jump below) because it is straight magic.

♫ Magnetic Man- Getting Nowhere
♫ Magnetic Man- I Need Air

Dubstep Roundup Teaser / Joel and Scott present: La Roux

Grime. Filth. Melt. Chunk. Wobble. Smack. Gnar. Nasty. BASS.

We, Joel & Scott, are proud to announce we will be bringing the genre of DUBSTEP to The Burning Ear through our very special “Dubstep Roundup” series.  Our cold lockers are packed to the gills with devastatingly heavy sounds and we can’t wait to share.  Look for us to release this new series exclusively on Fridays twice a month beginning this Friday.

So here, for now, chew on this, for it is only the beginning friends, it is only the beginning.

♫ La Roux- In For The Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Mix) This song isn’t new by any means.  BUT, it is delightfully evil and full of emotion (A perfect introduction to our most exciting series yet “Dubstep Roundups”).  Keep quiet, and listen to this cinematic tune.  It may induce goose-bumps.
