Oh you didn’t know ’bout this!? Better jump in that
Because we have
LIQUID STRANGER, MEGALODON, SUB ANTIKS, DIAMOND PISTOLS, BLESSED COAST…
oh my gosh it’s going down.
I have heard about Liquid Stranger’s upcoming album for Interchill Records for a while now and could not be happier to hear that it will be out soon. If anyone doesn’t know what this means, basically it’s another album like The Arcane Terrain which featured tacks like Babylon Beast and probably my favorite song ever, Bombaclaad Star. Just today Liquid Stranger posted up a link to a preview of the song Cryo from the new album, Cryogenic Encounters. Cryo is a very minimal based track and really captures the idea of relaxation in a song. Check this one out and seeeeriously keep an eye out for the album, I can’t even imagine what else is in store.
Check out this tune by Liquid Stranger and Robotti. It’s so dark and bassy that I lose my mind everytime I hear it. TURN THOSE SPEAKERS UP!
Man…. Liquid Stranger is seriously too kind. Wetware Warfare was just released for free in celebration of his 30,000 followers on facebook, and oh my lord, each song destroys speakers. There are 5 songs total, 3 Dubstep, 2 DnB. My favorite is the Lockstep VIP of Babylon Beast, mainly because it’s Drumstep (in my opinion) but also it’s just got this rhythm to it that other producers just can’t touch. Then there’s Get To The Point which he did with Excision and although the producers are similar in style you can hear both of their influences; the song is so well put together, it really reminds me of the other track that the two did together One which has this groove to it and an overall ambient vibe. Although those two are great they all are soooo amazing and Liquid Stranger remains my favorite Dubstep producer. Welp, I’m not gonna try to explain much more so have a listen below and grab the Ep in WAV or 320 on his facebook!! Big ups Martin!!! (click here for his facebook)
Here is a three track remix project of Orbatak’s Ganja, put on by Betamorph Recordings, featuring L-Nix, Ganja White Night, and Liquid Stranger. Of course, Liquid Strangers remix goes the hardest by far. Enjoy!
Liquid Stranger for years has been putting out some of the best dubstep in the world, my personal favorite Soundboy Killa was what first turned me onto him. He has had various different sounds over the years, from the dubby sounds of Soundboy Killa to the robotic and grimey Excision like, Rocket Fuel. His new album, The Arcane Terrain, has been the majority of what I’ve been listening to for the past week. It contains a lot of ambient, reggae, and of course, bass filled tunes. On my first listen through of the album one song in particular caught me. The song was Bombaclaad Star, the third song on the album. I was hooked. It had the feel of a true dub song that many struggle to capture. If I had to sum up dubstep in one song it would have to be this one, it embodies the core values of the name dubstep and the style of it that isn’t heard as often. Make sure to let Liquid Stranger know what ya think on his facebook, he reads every post and I know it will mean a lot. Also check out the rest of The Arcane Terrain as well as his other songs. Big up.
Drum n’ Bass has been running along side dubstep since dubstep first came about. In some ways I think of drum n’ bass as dubstep’s faster and more metal influenced predecessor. You can see how the two parallel each other with the sub/hybrid genre drumstep. Now a lot of people might not be as in love with drum n’ bass and just stick with dubstep because they prefer heavy HEAAAVVVY bass. but I would say they might not have heard the right stuff. One song that has been popping up on various compilations that I frequent would be Space Time by Delta Heavy. This song is massive! It’s on the new Drum N’ Bass Arena and I found out about it through UKF Drum & Bass. The drop…for a lack of better words, drops hard and seems to come out of nowhere. The bass line on the song has a dubstep sound to it while keeping the rhythm of a drum n’ bass track. If Dubstep’s slower pace isn’t doing it for you at the moment I highly recommend this song because it’s kind of like if you gave Dubstep a shot of adrenalin. So here it is, you can get it on beatport right now, Space Time by Delta Heavy.
Another song with a very notable all around dirty, grimy, and mesmerizing sound is No Problem off Chase & Status’s new album No More Idols. The song immediately makes you want to move with it’s fast pace and hypnotic synths. Like Space Time it also was featured on Drum & Bass Arena: Evolution. Chase & Status are hitting the Drum & Bass charts hard and they have recently kicked off their US tour and were featured at Coachella. Check it out below, big ups to Chase & Status for this one.
Last but not least is the heaviest of this list. Off of his new album, Mechanoid Meltdown, Liquid Stranger puts out Shake My Ass. The song starts out with a thumping bass and a trancy sounding intro, then gets right into the drum n’ bass tempo with it’s huge bass lines and powerful drums. The song is what a lot of dubstep wishes it could be. If you like deep and heavy bass, this song will definitely satisfy you. Buy the whole album on Beatport! Now, here is Shake My Ass.
