Dubstep is often good as is, but there’s one thing that’s better. It’s when the dubstep producers go out and remix other hyped artists. Here’s three examples of matches made in heaven, one of them has already been played to death but surely deserves an honorary mention, guess which one.

Video Wednesday [video]

Posted in Music, Tips, Video with tags , , , on September 9, 2009 by optpopt


This wednesday brings us four notable videos that have been making rounds on the internets in the last couple of weeks. First out is a mashup by Pogo, the guy who mashed alice in wonderland some time ago. This one’s based on the movie hook and is just as skillfully produced.

Pogo – Bangarang

Update: Sony pictures took down pogo’s video but some kind soul reuploaded it, we’ll see how long that lasts

The hype surrounding La Roux isn’t dying down and I wasn’t sure if I should post this seeing that I’ve already written about La Roux so many times before, I might start to look like a complete fanboy. But hell, this is just too good to pass up. Really weird video set in some alternate, steampunk influenced future where everybody dances like they were lightly epileptic.

La Roux – I’m not your toy

Next up is Steve Aoki’s newest thing. Bound to turn up on some dancefloors pretty soon.

Steve Aoki feat. [[[Zuper Blahq]]] – I’m In The House

Last out is the new video for Fever Rays track Seven. It’s just as dark and creepy as the previous ones. being what it is won’t let me embed it properly so if you want to watch, head over to pitchfork.
