Dubstep and bass enthusiasts alike have all been affected by the musical creations of UK producer extraordinaire Flux Pavilion. Ever since unleashing the almighty ‘bass cannon’ on a generation of new electronic music fans, the hype has never ceased to end when news of new material comes out. Having delivered a well received album titled ‘Blow The Roof’ earlier this year, Flux Pavilion returns to lime spotlight with massive bass focused five track Freeway EP.
The album starts of with hypnotically fresh blend of dubstep and electro as Flux Pavilion partners up with Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki to create ‘Steve French’. Then comes the collaboration which kicked off the ‘Freeway EPs’ buzz as Dillion Francis and Flux produce a moombasston heater ‘I’m The One’ that contains a perfect combination of hard hitting dubstep with electro/moombahton synths. Both ‘Gold Love’ and ‘Mountains and Molehills’ feature Flux’s signature bass line builds and heavy drops as fellow Brit’s Rosie Oddie and Turin Brakes soulful vocals shine bright on each track respectively. The self-titled ‘Freeway’ which showcases a downtempo synth pattern and soft bursts of bass sounds like an ending track to close out ones set. In its entirity, Flux Pavilion ‘Freeway EP’ delivers yet another fine example of his overall control of bass patterns and drops, leaving him in a league of his own as Flux continues to stamp his authority on the bass world and dubstep genre.

Anyone unaware of what a Steve Aoki live concert is like, have no fear and look above. He is not your typical DJ, he will stand behind the tables mixing about half the time, and spend the other half riding the crowd with a raft, slamming them with cakes, and untradtional DJ moves. He somehow has managed to make all of these things be what defines him and his live show. You can see it in all his glory on one of the biggest stages he has ever played, main stage at the 2013 Ultra Music Festival. You can watch the entirety above, you can also listen to the mix below. He dropped quite a few new tracks in this mix, see the track-list below. Enjoy!

He’s been making tidal waves across the world ever since dropping his debut album Wonderland album on top of countless headline performances at music festivals filled with crowd surfing and slamming cakes into fans worldwide.

Angger Dimas)” and his new collaboration with Knife Party “Pile drive” and even more unreleased ones. The rest of the tracks are some of the best from himself and the aritsts on his label Dim Mak Records.

Today have a HUGE new remix to the pop track “Looks Like Sex” by Mike Posner, remixed by none other than Steve Aoki. I love his high pitched chaotic sound that he does best and for this one it has a relatively mellow vibe, the opposite of how wild Aoki tracks are, it works great. He turns the track into something that even pop haters might like. Enjoy! Don’t miss his video too Cudi the Kid Ft. Kid Cudi & Travis Barker.
