Long Overdue

Additional writers was supposed to mean additional and more frequent posts. Yet, its been almost two weeks since anyone has written anything. We should consider a rotation of some sort.

Lately, I've been trying to diversify within the different types of electronic music that I listen to. It feels sort of weird to go from a high energy house track to some relaxing trance, but Gareth Emery is great. Seriously, Exposure is amazing and he has lots of other awesome tracks too (Props to Ellis).

So in my quest for diversity, I stumbled upon a Montreal based DJ by the name of Geoff Buchanan. He was introduced to me by a musically gifted friend of mine who is going to win Canadian Idol next year. Geoff is a 21 year old guy from Quebec who started his music career by performing in a few metal bands. He fell in love with synthesizing sounds and manipulating them to his liking. This is what he claims played the biggest role in propelling him towards dubstep. Don't be surprised if you don't hear too many wobbles in his songs. Geoff is an innovator in the sense that he tries to distance himself from the genre as he welcomes the "experimental" adjective that is often attributed to his tunes. I encourage his experiments, because as you guys will soon hear, his style is very entertaining and refreshing. He recently released a four track EP called Fashion Crasher under Monkey Dub Recordings, a record label which also employs Man of Zion and Dub Junkies.

This first track is from his EP and is my favorite of the four.
Heads You Live by Geoff Buchanan

This one is called Molotov

Now THIS is experimental dubstep
Liquid Cocaine by Geoff Buchanan

Feel free to check out Geoff's myspace, soundcloud, youtube channel and personal website for more.

In addition to awesome new styles of dubstep, I've got more tracks.

This kid from South Africa is only 18 years old and has provided me with the dirtiest stuff I've heard in a long time. Try to guess where the dialogue is from.

Gas Mask - Skare (Updated 2010)

This is a new Dizzee Rascal track. I'm not a big fan of rap, but I love this guy. The dubstepish background beat makes this song very enjoyable.

Heavy - Dizzee Rascal ft. Chase & Status

This tune is from a German duo named Hey Today!. They sound a lot like Boys Noize, a German counterpart. Coincidence? I do not think so.

Toasted - Hey Today! (Original Mix)

Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Jeffer - Boys Noize

One more thing: if you live in the Montreal area and you would like to see Geoff live, send us an e-mail and we will let you know about his upcoming performances.

  5. Take a look at what I wrote. Experimental dubstep, its not for everyone. Try listening to the various synths, effects and sounds individually. That way, you can see the hard work that was put into this music. Get your head out of your ass and open your mind to different musical styles.
