Long nights make for long next days...

Got lots ahead for today, but this morning I just wanna up everyone on two forces in electronic music that likely will not be stopped anytime soon. These artists come direct via Soundcloud and are offering many free goodies in the way of tunes and mixes, so get on the page, check out the ish, leave them some love if you dig. Our first artist, Nit Grit, hails from San Jose, CA and is KILLING the heavy dubstep/grime sound right now. His newest beauty, the "Prituri Se Planinata" remix takes a new adaptation of a classic Bulgarian folk song, Prituri Se Planinata, by Sonja Drakulich and Stellamara and really does a number on it. Somehow he finds a way to retain the sweetly mysterious aura the vocals can't help but let off and all the while you're waist deep in sludge. ;) I've been coming back to Danny's page every day since I heard it a week ago and I can't get enough of it!! Other great tracks included on the page are "Squits and Giggles", a Squitty Bubbler exclusive, as well as a re-edit of DJ Shadow's "Building Steam With a Grain of Salt" that might just leave you wondering if you yourself are on the surface on a vinyl record. If you dig the heavy sounds, then Nit Grit is gonna wobble your face off.

Next on the roster bees a better known DnB trio from the UK known as Dexcell. Their newest upload is also one for the books. A pretty fresh remix of Ellie Goulding's Starry Eyed in a nice rolling breaksy tradition with a hot little lo-fi organ sound and some crazy spacious vocal effects towards the end. Get out the glow sticks and turn down the lights, cuz this shit goes hard. Lots of other great free tunes available from Dexcell and a mind-blowing 3 deck mix that is so worth your time if you dig that jungle sound.

It's gettin late already... so I must be headin out. Send these artists some love on their Soundclouds and buy their LP's if you really feelin em!

  1. It's so true that Nit Grit is taking dubstep to a whole new level. I'm glad that the word is getting out. His remix of "Prituri Se Planinata" still gives me chills. [The original Stellamara track does as well, but in a different way.] The unique way in which Danny Beall infused the organic and virtuosic elements of the original piece into the totally unique, richly-textured electronic soundscapes of his unhinged imagination is truly spectacular. If you haven't heard it yet, be sure to head over to his Soundcloud page and listen. And if you like it, show some love and support the artist with a paid download on his Bandcamp page.
