Dj CUTMAN – Dubstep Is Dead

I released a new mix today, originally crafted for a show with my buddies at Toats Orig. I spent this morning editing this nice little blurb on Soundcloud, so a little copy/paste action should let you know how I’m feeling >;]

Dubstep Is Dead is meant to be a eulogy for the classic meaning of the word Dubstep; a genre that got its start with underground garage mixes in the UK. This mix comprises of the tracks and artists that I believe have taken the genre to new places, incorporating elements of progressive house, electro, chiptune and tech. This is not to say that dubstep itself is gone from this planet forever, but rather it has risen like a Phoenix… here to destroy us all.

Released on Halloween 2011, a one year anniversary of live dubstep mixing for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the MIXES thus far. A big, big thank you to all the artists, blogs, and labels who’ve provided me with the music I spin, this is truly a team effort.

As a way to say thank-you, I’ve posted a complete tracklist with links to the artist’s Soundcloud pages and download locations for all of the tracks (many of them available for free).

Electric Children – Insomniac

Sometimes our weakness can be an asset. Chipmusician Electric Children has been suffering from sleepless nights as of late, so it should come as no surprise that his latest released is titled Insomniac. It’s a 26 minute 1xLSDj mix. For those not attuned to the chiptuner’s lingo, that means this entire mix was played from a single Nintendo Gameboy.

This is what it means to be a Video Game DJ, in my eyes. For those of you who have seen me live you know I don’t go anywhere without my red macbook pro and kaoss pad. I really admire an artist who can create music like this from limited hardware. After all, that’s the art of the Chiptune, isn’t it?

Post a comment of what “Chiptune” means to you.
