Sir Mic, Cosm & Dias - Its My Time (Stormski DnB Refix) by Stormski

Wow, this is just a sick remix. The timing with the singing is just perfect. I'm not usually into d'n'b remixes but this one is a killer. At first I was like all what is this, but when the track moves on it's just sick. To be honest, not much makes my head nod this much!

Big up Storm, HARD track

29th September



This track was in my inbox yesterday, with a little message: " Check out my new video for the song 'The Cycle' and also make sure you buy 'The Chronicles of Esstar' E.P from iTunes! ". Interesting tune but I don't know if it's a great video but it's okay! Hard track, very in your face but that's what Esstar does best!

Also, stick to the rapping Esstar, 'cause you're very very good at it!

A remix of an actually bad track. I like his voice, but in this remix he doesn't sing so much which is nice in this song.

Sorry, for short post but I've been working on some nice stuff to the blog!

27th September, interview with Jelacee


Hey, what's up mate? Tell me your age, where you're from and etc.

Hey. Im 18 and im from east london. Ive been producing for about 4 years now, but only really started doing it properly in 2009.

What's your view on the "traditional"(like Dehydrated) vs. the newer, calmer tunes(like Forbidden). Is wobble really necessary in dubstep in your opinion?

Well personally i prefer the newer calmer tunes. I think people have lost the appreciation of the 'dub' in dubstep. I enjoy the atmospheric, emotive tunes. A good dubstep tune doesnt need a Wobble... Look at Burial!

Yeah, Burial is a great example! You've done some nice remixes, like Cheryl Coles 3 words which reached a nice view count of ~85.000 views of youtube! While other producers make remixes of dubstep tracks, you make them from other genres and styles. Why?

Lol yeah. Im still quite shocked that it got so many views. I think its more challenging making them from other styles because sometimes it pretty difficult changing it from genre to genre. Sometimes i can be listening to a song, and hear a dubstep remix, so i decide to make it.

People say you look like Wiley(which you do, but just a tiny bit), but jumping to a totally random question, are you into grime?

Haha. Thats an arguable statement. But yeah i definitely like Grime. It emerged from Bow E3, which is just down the road from me, so i grew up with it. It will always have a place in my heart. Grime was beginning to fall flat on its face, But it seems to be reviving. Im really happy to see collaborations such as Skepta and P Diddy! Never thought i would see the day.

How did you get into dubstep and producing your own music? Did you make your own tunes first or did you begin making remixes?

Umm, well i begun making Grime music originally, and ive moved through many genres to get where i am. I started producing dubstep about a year ago now, roughly the same time i started remixing. I didnt really like most of my old tunes so i scrapped them and came with a new style. Hopefully i can keep progressing, and become a recognisable name in dubstep.

That would be it! Thanks for your time!

Thanks alot for the interview... Much appreciated :)

Sir Mic - Written In The Stars Remix by SirMicMusic

New promo remix from Sir Mic! When I heard this tune at first I thought "What have Sir Mic done this time", and then he started to rap. Awesome. It's nice to see him keeping up the tradition with guitar solos in his tunes, good choice.

Good warm up to his upcoming Mini Me Mixtape Volume 3, which I'm defiantly looking forward to!

Some newer Caspa & Rusko, which are two of my favorite artists. This track is more of Caspa tune thou. Smooth, laid back and of course, very nice.

I've heard the name Datzik a lot before, and now I finally checked out his music. I was stunned, in a good way of course. Very, very good wobble. Excellent tune from Datzik!

22nd September



I just gotta post another Finnish rap tune. Sadly, most Finnish rap is too mainstream for me but I do actually like this track! Me being a guitar player and all, I really like that he used a guitar in this track. Good choice.

Monday, 20 September 2010

21st September



Hey everyone. Sorry that I didn't post yesterday, I had a lot of homework! Oh well, moving on to the song. It's a song that's sung on Finnish. To be honest, I dislike most of the songs that are being sung on Finnish but this one is good. Might not be in everyones taste, but please give it a try! But wow, at ~1.35 when the beatbox kicks in.

Great track. He has a lot of good tunes, so be sure to check him out. Hopefully, I can get some more stuff of him and write some more!

Found this one from Sir Mic feat. DIAS a couple of days ago. Very, very good video. Enjoyed both the video and the song. I really like how they took random(I think) people and had them in the video. And also that guy who passed out in the end, was epic.

17th September



Wow, this is a deep freestyle. I'm not usually into freestyles but this is killer. At the 1.40 mark, wow. Gave me goosebumps. I've said it before, and I'm gonna say it again, Fable is gonna go far.

16th September, Cypriot

Hey mate, how are you?

Supp Man? , I'm not bad , just started my first week at sixth form/College just trying to get settled in and that to be honest bro.

Cool. What have happened since our interview?

Well , I have been Granted a Youtube partnership which basically means , I'm near the top of the youtube hierarchy and get promoted by them alot more and features , also i get paid by Google for advertisement on my videos and that was a target i wanted to reach and i did so I'm pretty happy about that.

I've only recently started school again as i was in summer holidays , so i have been making ALOT of new music , mainly hiphop beats , i had a productive few weeks where i was making and releasing a new beat everyday. " Goodbye " & " In the Night " are my favorites.

You were on the radio with Fixxa a couple of days ago, tell me about it!

As for radio yeah i was played on "Dubstep Fm" the other night and also got My song with Fixxa "Candy Remix " played , it went down really well. Hopefully I'll be getting played on radio more as that's one of my newer targets.

Got any new stuff coming up?

New Stuff ? Haha , i've always got stuff coming out , i'm a very secretive person , i prefer to work on stuff rather than to be one of those people who talk about it and don't do it.
But i'll let you into my newest project , Myself & Esstar have been working very hard on a Hiphop Album to be released in the winter , it's got a mad vibe to it , pretty dark , I recently finished Producing all the beats to it the other day with him , so we went for a celebration drive down to Cake's N Shakes :)

Nice! Got any shout outs to your fans?

I Want to shout out to everyone supporting me it means alot.

Boom.

Thanks Cypriot!

I have to post another Caspa, seriously he is awesome. This one is a classic and it must be one of the first dubstep tunes I heard. One weird thing is, that I can see Rusko dancing in front of me dancing. You know, his "dance" fits perfectly in this song.

Tuesday, 14 September 2010

14th September



I was making my Finnish homework and I randomly clicked this song on youtube. I stopped working immediately. Sick sick tune. Caspa gotta be one of my favorite artists. Also, those arpeggios(the sweeping type of sound) are great!

Big up to Caspa!

A very interesting remix of a good track. Might not be in every ones taste but I like it.

Sorry for short post today. I promise I'll write more tomorrow!

12th September



Really good track. It's interesting, because the the cymbals makes it sound like a fast paced song but the singing and the bassline slows it down in a way. Definitely a "head-nod" song.

Saturday, 11 September 2010

11th September



I was surprised when I heard this track the first time. I dislike to use the term filthy or dirty when it comes to dubstep, but this is so filth/dirty and good. It's a long time since I've seen a good drop but this one is a epic drop.

Killer tune. Also, check out his artwork here!

Fable



New Fable, always nice to see. I like his voice, it's a bit dark and negative. Yeah sure, a lot of rap is like that, but his voice is special! Also the way how he incorporates the piano is excellent. Good feature from KY, too.

Watch out for this guy, he is gonna be something.

Rebel Sonix



Found this track a couple of days ago. It's killer, in my opinion. I'm not into "filthy" dubstep but this is deffo a good tune. I like how to the video works with the track, kinda like Benga & Coki's "Night". I don't usually watch the video but I did watch this one.

8th September, interview with Itch



Hey mate, how are ya? First I gotta say that I've been listening a lot to of your music the latest week and I must say I'm impressed.

Thank you im all good i appreciate your taking time out to listen to my music right now my label limelight are working real hard on a couple things so your gonna see alot of artists coming with good music

Good, tell me something about you! Age etc.

Im just your average guy chasing a dream, working hard trying to chase it i love my football support tottenham hotspur so im all happy right now with my music and my team

Tell me about the song 'When you come home'! Deep track, what it's about?

You know what with all my tunes i always try to hide something behind it and always make a story so people can relate to it, basically its about all those family's having people they love at war and they want them to come, home they miss them etc and there are alot of politics goping on right now so i thought it would be a good time to release it

Also, you into dubstep? Feeling some dubstep in your tracks! Also do you got any new stuff coming up?

You know what one of my best mates showed me a station the other day of dubstep and it was bangin, its a good vibe and hopefully i can jump on a bit of dubstep soon, and on my latest mixtape start of the takeover track 8 is a bit dubstepish so check that out and look out for the cd


Cool, keep on making those tunes. You got some real great deep stuff! Big up to Itch! Thanks mate

Itch Dot



Now this is a deep track. Gave me chills thru the whole song. Gotta love how he used the military singing and anthems, and incorporate it into the song! I asked Itch about this song in my interview with him, so check it out when I post it in a coupla days!



This was the first tune that I heard from Itch, and honestly I've lost track how many times I've heard to it. Brilliant track. To be honest, I couldn't feel it in the beginning but give it a chance.



Gotta throw in this one too, brilliant. Great lyrics.

5th September



"When I look at you" is a classic tune, made famous on Caspas essential mix. But it needs a bigger climax in my opinion. I have a feeling that this a track that's better live/on a party then just hearing it at a random place! I actually heard this tune at a party once, and it was killer. So next time, tell the DJ to put this track on!

Saturday, 4 September 2010

4th September

I'm sorry for the bad/short posts I've done the latest days!



Be right back, gonna pick up my jaw from the floor.

This track really left me hanging with my mouth open. I just sat there, and watched the picture in the video. It's just so beautiful, especially that synth! Sadly, I can't play this thru my speakers but when I can I will. Mala is by far one of my new favorite artists, and I'm sad that I've found him now and not years back.

Enjoy.

The guy with the weird name. Great stuff, worth checking out!

2nd September



Some more Skream for you. In my opinion, this is a bit special track. It incorporates some drum and bass, and the outcome is actually good! This is a song that makes your head nod, for sure!



Now this is a big, big tune. The intro builds up very nicely, and the voice is really good. And that drop, is huge.

Enjoy!
