Zardonic (Big Riddim, Subsonik, Foul Play, Human Imprint), dropped me a pretty sick mix this morning called The Fast Dubstep Mix. At 180bpm, it seamlessly bangs through hard dubstep, drum & bass and drumstep styles—including tracks from Bare, Audio, Excision, Tinie Tempah, Muffler, Mark Instinct, Korn & Skrillex, Tommy Lee, Hulk and a ton more. Some of the tunes have been chopped up and reassembled specifically for this mix so get ready to listen to your favorite tracks as you’ve never heard ‘em before.

The Fast Dubstep Mix – Mixed by Zardonic
It’s been way too long since the last post. If anyone still visits here, you’re in for some sick tunes. Phace and Misanthrop’s latest collaboration, “Energie,” will pump you the fuck up. If only you could liquify it and bottle it up. “Energie” is part of Neosignal’s 10th release, Energy EP. To hear more and see full release details, check out neosignal.de. The second track, “Teufelswerk,” is Phace’s first dubstep track—that I know of— that’s way beyond most of the tunes coming out these days.
MP3 1: Phace & Misanthrop – Energie
MP3 2: Phace – Teufelswerk

It’s finally here and it’s every bit as good as the write-ups have said it was—although definitely not Tobin’s “most accessible” work to date. ISAM is aural heaven, extremely overwhelming, a journey to a distant world, your worst nightmare, a day in the park, the skip in your step, a sound designer’s wet dream and the icing on the cake.
The album’s available as a digital download or in a deluxe package with a book, double vinyl and CD. http://www.amontobin.com/store
