Best of the Blogosphere: March 2012

Written by:

Mar 1, 2012

Right now electronic music is all about fusion. Disparate styles, genres, and artists are collaborating and crossing-over.

For example, an entire movement – Moombahton – is taking shape around a single medium of tempo and beat structure, with a range of styles and aesthetics. Artists such as Knife Party, Porter Robinson, Feed Me, and Skrillex are producing uptempo, very hard sounding American electro-dubstep inspired Moombahcore. Yet others, such as Ginger Shinobi, Sabo, Munchi, Heartbreak, and many others are producing mid and downtempo jams. And somewhere in the middle (or out of this orbit completely perhaps) are artists like Dillon Francis, Torro Torro, and Bro Safari.

Collaboration of the month

One of the most interesting pieces of news this month was a collaboration; Mad Decent label boss Diplo and R&B heavyweight Usher got together on a track called Climax.

Diplo ft. Usher – Climax

Outstanding track of the month:

The other big piece of news is the release of You And I, out on Crosstown Rebels March 5th. This one gets our outstanding track of the month award.

Fur Coat feat. Cari Golden – You and I

Top three dubstep releases:

There were so many great dubstep releases to choose from, but the three who edged out the top spot were Flux Pavilion + Nero (another giant collab), Benga, and Kill The Noise.

Benga – I Will Never Change

Noisia – Diplodocus (Kill The Noise Remix)

Nero – Must Be The Feeling (Flux Pavilion and Nero Remix)

Hot new electro remixes

Two heavyweights with new electro remixes this month – Wolfgang Gartner and R3hab both released tracks which we’re sure will be moving dancefloors.

Miike Snow – Paddling Out (Wolfgang Gartner Remix)

LMFAO – Sorry for Partyrocking (R3hab Remix)

Free releases and blogosphere bootlegs

The biggest piece of news here is the release of Hardwell’s free 2012 bootleg compilation. Just a ton of quality party-ready mashups. There were also several MTA-approved Must Be the Feeling remixes which have been released free, including veteran Funkagenda.
