Listen To Skream’s Surprising New Unreleased Dubstep Song After Publicly Stepping Away From the Genre. Not A Joke

If you know dubstep, then you know exactly how big this latest news is - as for the first time in over five years, Skream has a new dubstep track in the works.

Over a decade ago, dubstep was an entirely different entity. Before Skrillex began blowing sound systems and Excision started breaking necks, producers like Hatcha, Kode 9, Vex’d & more were bringing a heavy, bass-filled, gut-wrenching sound out of the shadows. But there are few whose names are still so controversial in dubstep as Skream.

“Dubstep is just a name now. It doesn’t have a meaning any more and the movement is over. It’s like the end of a relationship but it’s ended on a high.” - Skream via the Daily Star (2013)

To say we were shocked when Skream called it quits on dubstep would be an understatement. As someone so powerful and at the forefront of the movement, we had no idea what to expect from the Croydon-born producer's full transition to house/disco, but having become such a prominent force in his new scene, it’s hard to argue that he made the wrong decision all those years ago (although we don't feel it was a wrong choice). And with fans seemingly always stirring up arguments over the validity of dubstep vs. post-dubstep vs. brostep (and the hundreds of other sub-genres dubstep has become), although it might seem excessive to cast aside dubstep as being dead, there’s no denying that genre has changed since Skream's iconic La Roux remix.

While we can’t say for sure what sparked Skream's desire to return to the scene, we’re overjoyed to hear that the legend is serving up wobble bass yet again, even if only for the moment. Check out Hatcha dropping a new Skream track live at Outlook Festival below and enjoy!

Excision & Illenium Team Up On Hard-Hitting, Melancholic New Single “Gold (Stupid Love)”

Today’s a good day to be a basshead! Back in March, Illenium shared that he and Excision had been in the studio together - and after a few teasers and some confusion as to if the collab would ever see the light of day, “Gold (Stupid Love)” is finally here.

We weren’t sure what to expect out of a collab from the two heavyweight producers, but this latest offering is even better than we could’ve anticipated. Starting off slow with some warbling guitar and soft vocals courtesy of LA-based duo Shallows, some powerful percussion and rising synths quickly transform the track from an emotional ballad into a hard-hitting dubstep monster. Although both Excision and Illenium have traveled down slightly different paths on the bass-music spectrum, their unique sounds perfectly compliment each other on this new one. Check out “Gold (Stupid Love)” below and enjoy!

Snails & Kill The Noise Team Up On Ridiculously Heavy New Dubstep Track "Shake The Ground” (feat. Sullivan King & Jonah Kay)

We’ve been waiting quite some time for this one to see the light of day! Soon after the inception of Snails and Kill The Noise’s super-duo Kill The Snails back in 2016, an collab only known as “Fuck It” began making its way into heavy bass sets everywhere (including the intro to Kill The Noise’s 2017 Killuminati Mixtape). Now, Snails and Kill The Noise may have just dropped arguably the hardest dubstep track of 2018, with the official release of the enigmatic collab, titled "Shake The Ground" featuring Sullivan King & Jonah Kay.

"We wanted to try something new and different on this one and bring our metal and rock n' roll roots into the song. The energy of the crowds when we drop this song at festivals is what makes it all worth it. Really, really proud of this one!" - Snails

Coming as the first release on Snails’ new label, Slugz Music, believe us when we say this one is an absolute monster. Blasting off to a start with some thumping percussion, gritty, distorted vocals and crunchy guitar riffs courtesy of dubstep/metal heavyweights Sullivan King & Jonah Kay, this latest offering will undoubtedly serve to set the aesthetic of Slugz Music. Filled with abrasive, guttural growls, skittering metallic hits, explosive bass and deafening crowd chants throughout the entirety of the track, even the most seasoned bassheads won’t be prepared for the second drop... Check out "Shake The Ground" below and for those headed to HARD Summer in August, make sure to catch Snails and Kill The Noise's special Kill The Snails set during day two. Enjoy!
