Skrillex’s Fall Tour

Flux Pavilion is getting ready to release his remixes EP for his most recent EP “Freeway.” To give fans a little taste of what’s to come, he’s released his remix collaboration with Kill The Noise on the lead single, “Freeway.” Like with most Flux Pavilion tracks, we’re given a more chill, mellowed out dubstep sound created with sustained chords that are characteristic of Flux Pavilion’s style. Definitely a chill but energy-packed track to vibe to.

“Resistance” by Knife Party

Knife Party just leaked a track off their upcoming album “Abandon Ship.” They promised, earlier this month, that they will be releasing the track for free. So, in true Knife Party fashion, there had to be some sort of social media interaction in the release:

A couple of weeks ago, Rob Swire premiered “Boss Mode.” Fans definitely had mixed feelings. “Resistance” is more for the average Knife Party fan. Can’t wait for more releases.

“Satisfy (Kayzo Remix)” by Nero

A classic Nero track gets a hard remix treatment. Kayzo is out with another remix, and per usual, this one goes in. Hard synths and grungy sounds are a few of the tactics used. The original vocals are also perfect for a heavier sound. Nero, in the original, definitely takes advantage of this, and Kayzo takes it one step further.

Video: “Worlds Apart” by Seven Lions ft. Kerli

Jeff Montalvo, but better know as Seven Lions has been blowing up the past year and a half. The first time I saw Seven Lions perform was at a small side stage in Seattle at an event called Lucky. After hearing his set, I knew he was only going to go up from there. As months progressed, I have been seeing him at almost every major festival and touring with huge acts like Krewella and Tritonal.

The song which we all know, “Strangers”, is what put Seven Lions on the map. His style is so different from any other Dj out there. People say he’s dubstep with a hint of trance and progressive house. I call his style Trance-step, maybe it will catch on.

His EP, Worlds Apart, was released in April of 2014 and was a major success. His EP had a wide variety of generes which separates him from the others, and he collaborated many of his songs with Ellie Goulding, Myon and Shane 54  and Kerli.

Today we finally got a music video to his title song, “Worlds Part.” The songs is all about love lost long ago. This video has so many beautiful qualities to it. The amazing visuals compliment this songs beautiful melody with the delicate voice of  Kerli. The video is only 4 minutes and 34 seconds long, but it’s still a powerful and stunning piece of work. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of this video and I hope all of y’all enjoy it as much as I do.

EP: “Only Getting Younger (Remixes)” by Elliphant ft. Skrillex

If the original track with Elliphant x Skrillex wasn’t enough, the remixes tape has just been released featuring a star studded cast. The original track is definitely a track characteristic to Skrillex’s usually releases. Utilizing Elliphant’s rasta-esque vocals and infusing them within Skrillex synths is the perfect combination. Elliphant, a 28 year old vocalist from Sweden, is definitely turning heads on her recent releases. You can see why as you listen to her unique lyrical style and sound.

The remixes tape changes up the original in a ton of different ways. We have artists like TJR, Milo & Otis, and Imanos hopping on the opportunity to remix the track. Track by track review will be included below, as well as a stream of the original track.

Rating: 4.5/5

“Skybreaker” by Razihel

skybreaker razihel pumpthebeat.com

Another banger from team Monstercat. Razihel produces a dubstep track that will lay down a heavy assault on your ears. If you’re looking for heavy dubstep, this track is for you. But, like I always say, it’s important for dubstep to not just be a bunch of smashed synths.

Fortunately, Razihel takes this into consideration and adds a melodic element to the track. Once the melody ends, the drops are where the track really takes off. The chopped up synth progression gives the track the extra boost of energy that it needs.
