Sink into the tune, As I inhale the fumes

Last week before I go back to college so thought a post was needed.
I got my first spam yesterday, someone commented on a post saying "this website is very helpful for BuYiNg vIaGrA" with a little link. If I'm getting spam I must be doing something right.

The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
I honestly don't know why I've only just gotten into the cure, they really are ridiculously good. This and Lovecats are my favourites, this slightly beats lovecats though just due to the awesome riff. I love how they've made what could have been a highly depressing song into a cheerful lovely tune about missing your ex. And it's true, boys don't cry. they bottle it all up, laugh about it and secretly die a little inside. but all very cheerfully.

Katy B - Katy on a Mission
I have yet to work out how exactly to describe this. It's produced by the godfather of Dubstep, Benga, but it really doesn't have much bass. It's certainly got the wobbles but most of the song is concentrated on the lyrics. It's definitely a tune though, if you can get past all the angry dubstepheads saying "THIS IS SHIT DUBSTEP IS NOW MAINSTREAM IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER WHEN RUSKO DID IT", Even though rusko was the start of dubstep becoming shit. but still, ignore them and just enjoy the song, I'm finding it annoyingly addictive listening.

Bart B More - Brap!
I think I've covered most of my favourite genres in this post so it's time to bust out some electronica. Again, this guy's signed to BNR so it's got to be a good song. and fuck it really really is. The intro is ridiculously long but you don't even care that much cos it's fun to sing along to. then around 50seconds in you notice something building up slowly. it keeps getting louder until..
BRAP and a hefty drop 2minutes in that will literally make a dance floor explode. just give it a ganders. also I really want that vinyl, it looks so sick!

B-Complex - Beautiful Lies
Lots of things have B in today don't they? anywho, this is without a doubt my favourite dnb song I've heard in the last couple of months. I don't know why but absolutely everything about it works together perfectly to make an awesome song for whatever you're doing. seriously, I've listened to this when running, when doing homework and at a big party, it fits literally any situation. listen and enjoy.

Middle Fingers Up!

Well I've had a few more days of being fucked up but now I'll get my cheap thrills from tunes such as these. Enjoy.

Lil' Jon - U Don't Like Me
What a tune. Lil' Jon is the king of Crunk (angry loud shouty rap) and this proves it. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. Notice the awesome heavy bassline? that would be due to the guy who produced the track, Thomas Wesley Pentz otherwise known as Diplo. yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, he's done it again. The bassline is what makes this track insane. The vocals of course add that singalong aspect so the whole track just comes together as a heavy dirty crunk tune. I'm tempted to buy a car just to drive around playing this constantly to scare old people.

Chase & Status - Let You Go Ft. Mali
The first new thing C&S have done that isn't on an album. Definitely more drum and bass than their old dubby stuff, quite nice. It's quite stadium drum and bass kind of stuff though, straying into pendulums new territory, They'd better watch out or they'll become utter douches just like pendulum did. The video is lol worthy, although the segments of the video that stray into the actual song sort of ruin the build up. But still, goooood song although not quite as good as most the stuff on their first album.

Egyptian Hip Hop - Middle Name Period
I've never heard this group before but wowowowowowowow this is awesome. I don't even know what genre to describe this as, they remind me of Holy Fuck! but more garage band-y. even though they sound like the songs were recorded in some mate of theirs basement, the guy who actually produces for them is the frontman from Late Of The Pier. Which would explain why this song is just so damn good. literally, listen or get off this blog naow.

Crystal Fighters - In The Summer (Tek One Remix)
I'm in love with crystal fighters. If you wanna hear how cool they are look up "xtatic truth", however this is more about Tek One's remixing skills than Crystal Fighters coolness. They've done an insane dubstep remix of BMTH (which was the most heavy thing I've ever heard) and they've done it again on this one. loooong build up to make you think it's chillout then a niiiiiice introduction of bassline. The original is still epicly good though so I'm posting both links.Sue me.
Link - Remix
Link - Original

Rigggght well that was fun and took me about 3 days to complete (easily distracted init.)
I've got results out tomorrow so expect to not hear from me for the next week or so at least. I'll either be so happy I wanna partyhard all the time or I'll have run away from home to avoid madre and padre.

Imagine a song that reached out and touched kids, not in a daily mail way..

I'm BACK Babbbby.
Apologies for the lack of recent posting, it's been a rather hectic month or so.
Luckily I've still been discovering awesome songs in my free time but I haven't had time to write them down until now (mostly cos it's the first time in a month when I haven't been coming down/hungover/out)
So lets dance to some new tuuunes.

Example - Kickstarts (Bar 9 Remix)
Example is fairly well known now (I should have written about him a month or two ago but I forgot) luckily this remix is still fairly underground even though it has got a kickass (literally) video. Bar 9 never fails to bust out the best old school deep dubstep and he's succeeded yet again into making a classic song out of this. Nice work mr 9.

Jack Beats - UFO
I may have already posted this song and I couldn't care less as long as I get a few more people to listen to it. Just found out that Jack Beats is more than one person and half of him is in scratch perverts! Who knew. Anyway this is probably my favourite original song he/they've made. The intro has the nicest Miami bass and then after the drop it's impossible not to skank along to the fidgetty wobbles. I know it's an old song but it's still a absolute banger.

Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip - Get Better
The new DLSVSSP Album is soso good. It's not quite as good as angels (their first album) but it's still easily one of the best albums of the year. Can't wait to see the beardy poet and the slightly balding dj again. This is one of the best from the new album, quite feel good but with the usual scroobius wit and usual le sac sick beats.

The Bloody Beetroots Ft. Refused - New Noise
TBB can now apparently do punk. And do it fucking well if this remix is anything to go by. If you don't like heavy guitars and all that jazz than don't bother looking at this. however if you love insane drops then this is easily one of the best. Probably my favourite TBB remix. Even though the original of this track is insane, The remix is so much heavier and louder. CAN I SCREAM?

The King Blues - What if Punk Never Happened?
I only just started listening to The King Blues, they're simply incredible. Amazing lyricists and such good producers of absolute tunes. I've had their album on repeat for the last week or so, I don't know a single person that wouldn't absolutely love it. This is a highlight from it, A whole story synopsised in an amazing 6.30 minutes. They even bring Back To The Future into it. It makes you glad of Punk, even if you don't like the music.

Right that's 5 Songs, enough for one post at least. I promise promise promise I'll post more soon.
