[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Win Tickets To See Excision Live In Chicago

Last year, Excision tore down Chicago’s Congress Theater while on his Execution Tour, featuring the awe-inspiring lights and sounds of the now-infamous Executioner stage – a stage boasting more than 150,000 watts of power. Now the Canadian dubstep giant is making a comeback to the Windy City, returning to Aragon Ballroom on April 18th to […]

[Drumstep/Drum & Bass] Rootkit – Do It


Quality melodic drumstep doesn’t just fall into my lap everyday. So when it does, please forgive me for losing my cool for a brief moment. “Do It” is the first sampling I’ve had of this 16-year-old Norwegian producer’s electrifying sound and if this tune is any indicator of what his future holds, then I can’t […]

[Dubstep] Slum Village – Fall In Love (Moody Good Remix)

Moody Good

This new track from Moody Good is just too grimy! You’re going to need to use a fire hose in order to clean off all the layers of muck left behind by his latest remix. It’s filthier than the inside of a garbage truck, more pungent than the foulest stench you’ve ever smelled, and downright disgusting […]

[Dubstep] Fractal – Urchin (Au5 Remix)


No one out there can replicate the one of a kind sound design that Au5 packs into his excessively powerful productions. If a tornado, hurricane, and tsunami were to all met up at once, it still wouldn’t quite measure up to the towering force that is this top-notch producer’s music. Off of Fractal’s Avare/Urchin Remix EP, […]


Ryan Hemsworth takes over this Quick Mix with his blend of chilled-out hip hop and bass vibes in his “Cool DJ Mix”. “First mix of 2014 and it feels good to be back. This is what my brain feels like and it’s weird. Listen to this on headphones when you’re zooted on a greyhound bus […]

[Dubstep/House] Stratus – Goonsquad EP


We’re not the least bit shy about promoting local talent here at The Sights and Sounds. After bringing you tons of fresh releases from Chicago-based producers like Manic Focus & Louis the Child, you should trust me when I tell you that Stratus is a name you’ll need to know sooner rather than later. Having been […]

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Tinashe ft. Schoolboy Q – “2 On” (TOKiMONSTA Remix) [Free Download]

[ELECTRONIC/BASS] Tinashe ft. Schoolboy Q - "2 On" (TOKiMONSTA remix)

As I lay in bed, wrapping my thoughts for the day and getting ready for some zzz’s, I can’t help but crave the late night companionship so many others seem to find so easily. You know, your boo, the person you can cuddle up next to and fall asleep with. Luckily, I have music to […]

[Dubstep/Drum & Bass] Datsik & Terravita – Losing Control

Datsik & Terravita

In an effort to get us even more excited for their forthcoming Rituals EP, due out April 1st on Firepower Records, Terravita put in a request for the services of the label’s prestigious headmaster. Heeding the trio’s call, Datsik was quick to grab his cape and suit up for superhero duty! Just like that, “Losing Control” was […]

[Dubstep] T-Mass – Defiant Alliance


T-Mass has quickly (and not so quietly) turned into my most reliable source for state-of-the-art melodic dubstep. There’s just something about his enchanting sound that I can’t seem to resist! It’s gotten to the point where every time I see a new song of his showcased on SoundCloud, I clear my whole schedule for the day. […]

[Dubstep/House] Astronaut – Destination: Quantum EP


It’s only healthy to venture out of your comfort zone every once in awhile, and that’s precisely what I’ve decided to do for Astronaut’s new Destination: Quantum EP. Consisting of five tracks total, the wide variety of EDM on this heroic production will surely leave you feeling like a superhero. Please feel free to select […]
