There's now a dubstep album that repells Mosquitoes.
In April this year, Acta Tropica published results of a study which found Skrillex's 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' causes the bugs to forget to search for human blood and look for mates to reproduce.
After the news broke, Apotek Hjärta, a pharmacy in Sweden, hired duo Kloudmen to reimagine six nursery rhymes in a dubstep fashion, using intense frequencies throughout the tracks to confuse the Mosquitoes.
Skream has confirmed a one-off old school dubstep set for this year's EDC Las Vegas.
The Croydon dubstep icon had been hinting at a back-to-roots set for some time over Twitter, and after he was announced as playing EDC Las Vegas this year, he confirmed fan suspicions that that long-anticipated set will happen this May, quote-tweeting with a simple but very effective "it is indeed".
Consider us hyped.
Razat — the Portuguese bass producer, who sadly died last year — has a posthumous release coming via Alix Perez's 1985 Music.
Real name Baltazar Gallego, Razat was known for experimenting across mutiple genres, from dupstep to hip-hop and drum & bass, the latter of which saw him release on Flexout Audio and Vandal LTD.
He passed away in August 2018 following a long battle with cancer, he was just 31.
Skrillex and Hikaru Utada have shared their 'Kingdom Hearts III' theme song, 'Face My Fears', an emotionally-charged piano number that eventually gives way to a choppy, broken track.
DJ Mag first learnt of the work back in September, when the dubstep aficionado and noted fan of the Disney video game— AKA Sonny Moore— confirmed a collaboration with J-pop vocalist Utada and producer Poo Bear was in the pipeline.
Skrillex says he’s going back into the studio with Travis Scott, according to a recent interview.
The pair are currently enjoying the success of Skrillex's remix of 'Sicko Mode', the lead track from Scott's third album, 'Astroworld', which also features Drake and dropped as a freebie earlier this week.
When asked if they would consider collaborating in the future, the answer was a resounding yes.
There are plenty of artists who proclaim the influence of hardcore, but there are very few whose birth was possibly induced by it. “She used to go out raving constantly, even when she was pregnant with me,’ laughs Etch, aka Brighton-based DJ and producer Zak Brashill, on his mum’s story that she was at The Zapp club when, aged just 18, she went into labour with him.
“When I first started making music I was just soundtracking my walk to school,” says Zak of his earliest productions in 2005 using Fruity Loops. Although conversant in hardcore and jungle, helped by inheriting his uncle’s record collection after he’d moved to the States to work for a computer games company, it wasn’t until he came to London in 2011 that he started thinking about the dancefloor.
Skrillex has shared a sneak peek video of his new studio on Instagram, furthering excitement that the he will have a lot of new music on the way in the near future.
