Modestep

6 Jan

You may recall that I wrote about Modestep last summer and spoke of their kerfuffle with EMI regarding an Enya clearance that they tried to get. EMI tried to shut them down completely. Well, how they must be feeling now. Since then, Modestep’s popularity has grown at an alarming rate. With no releases and just a couple of DJ sets here and there, they have managed to gain almost 30,000 fans on Facebook off their own back.

Cee Le Green – Fuck You (Modestep remix)

The video (see below) for their debut single ‘Feel Good’ was posted up as a Christmas treat for fans and was viewed by over one million people in less than a week. Hats off.

Since then, they have been placed on the Radio 1 playlist and are gaining fans across the world quicker than you can say “wobble-wobble”. Their debut single is available to download on February 7th on UKF (a dubstep YouTube channel-cum-label that signed the band). Watch it explode!

Does the music make you feel good?

Earth, Wind & Fire get a dubstep makeover…

22 Apr

Allow me to introduce to you, a brand new London dubstep collective by the name of Modestep.

Here’s their take on a disco classic by Earth, Wind & Fire that sounds brilliant even on my laptop speakers. I can’t even begin to imagine how good it will sound on a bodysonic dance floor!

These guys have grand plans to perform live in the near future (something that is a pretty rare on the dubstep scene) and they thrive on making the filthiest music around. I won’t repeat some of the descriptions they have for their music because you may have recently eaten. If you enjoy reading filth however then become a fan of them on Facebook. Keep your eyes and ears on them. Brrrrrap.

I only used to ever listen to dubstep when I went to Fabric. It gave me a break from the pounding four-on-the-floor electro in the main room. For such a long time, I wanted to dislike it. I thought it was too slow, repetitive and boring.  As time has gone on however, I’ve started to listen to it a lot more frequently and I’ve started to like it even more.

Obviously, it’s started to become much more mainstream in the past year or so rather than just being played in dark underground clubs to wide-eyed kids in bright coloured clothing and sunglasses. Your last name must be Fritzl if you haven’t heard Skream’s remix of La Roux and Joy Orbison has been tipped by everyone to achieve big things this year. Dubstep is on the rise.

With that in mind, allow myself to introduce a brand new dubstep artist from Cardiff. I think his tunes are immense. 

If I was a dubstep DJ, I would definitely ‘drop’ this. It sounds heavy on my laptop speakers – I can only imagine what it would sound like being pumped out of the bodysonic speakers in Fabric’s main room.

Ch-ch-ch-check him out.
