Hey all! Friday is Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means! You guessed correctly. It means you need to listen to this week’s offering of steppers to impress the hunys & beefcakes in your lives. I’m certainly not saying you won’t be desirable if you don’t up your dubstep game, but that’s definitely the implication. The choice is yours. Let’s go!
1. SubVibe, Wash It Away ft Beth Warriner
Wow. WOW. WOW. This is a beautiful track with amazing vocals, hard hitting bass, and drops that gave me chills. This is an incredible track.
2. The Prodigy, Voodoo People (Specimen A Refix)
A running theme of my weekly charts is that I completely miss out on an amazing track, find it a month later, and then put it in here and hope no one calls me out. I think it’s hilarious. Here’s another track! I’m ashamed that I missed this the first time, as this is an AMAZING re-work of a classic track. Bonus points for the Predator 2 samples.
3. Frequent, Shade
This dark neuro song is incredibly well designed. The drums are some of the best I’ve heard, and they complement the brooding bass perfectly.
4. Dogma, Okay
I think “Dirty” is the proper term to use for this song. Dirty South elements are fused with an incredibly dirty bass and raw beats to make a straight up banger.
5. Jakes, Birthday Blaze
While I certainly enjoy the modern tearout style of dubstep, sometimes you need to rinse ya head with a good powwa beat. Jakes will always provide that, and his latest freebie is a great stepper.
6. John Newman, Love Me Again (Clark Kent Remix)
Props to Clark Kent here for taking the power of the original and giving it even more without taking away from the soul. This is a great remix.
7. Savant, Rude Gal
You already know this song is going to be crazy. No one else could of have made a track this funky and unique. Savant is the man.
8. Man Du, Light Fire ft MelissFX
This is a rollercoaster of a track, with intense purple bass and soaring vocals. There is a ton of intensity in this song, with only brief moments to catch your breath.
9. Syn Cole, Miami 82 (VLXX & Xyron Remix)
It’s always amazing to hear young producers come out with really unique tracks. These two producers from Germany combine to create a very melodic and uplifting track. Great work.
10. Sporty-O & Kisskaya, Liquor & Sex (Dubstep Remix)
I’m a sucker for tracks that have a hip hop flair to them, especially tracks that put in the genuine dirty south feel. This dirty edit by Sporty-O definitely hits the spot.
