[Drumstep] Astronaut – Rain (FWS Remix)

FWS

Ever since I began writing here at The Sights and Sounds, I’ve made it a point to give local EDM acts the exposure they deserve. Whether it be new Louis The Child, Manic Focus, or Stratus, we always seem to be right on the cutting-edge of the Chicago bass music scene. In keeping with that […]

[Dubstep] Tucker Kreway – Alone

Tucker Kreway

This young dubstep phenom is beginning to flourish right in front of our eyes. Shortly after hearing Tucker Kreway’s music for the first time a few weeks ago, I got the sense that this Canadian kid’s future was brighter than a that of a Rhodes Scholar! Backing up my perhaps not-so-wild theory, Mr. Kreway has […]

[Dubstep] LAXX – Brainbug (MUST DIE! Remix)

MUST DIE!

Look people, I’m just going to set the record straight. MUST DIE! is my favorite dubstep producer on the planet! Additionally, his new remix of LAXX’s “Brainbug” has been resting comfortably in the #1 spot on the Beatport dubstep chart for the better part of the last week. After taking both of those crucial pieces of […]

[CONCERT RECAP] David Guetta Pays Tribute To Frankie Knuckles At Chicago Performance

David Guetta (1 of 3)

I must admit I was a bit skeptical before seeing David Guetta on a Saturday night at a concert venue as large as the Aragon Entertainment Center. The dance music giant and DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s 2011 poll winner has been known to a cause a polarizing opinion or two. To some, he is […]

[Drumstep/Drum & Bass] Rootkit – Do It

Rootkit

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 […]

[CONCERT NEWS] Dr. Fresch at Spybar

Dr. Fresch

Deep house has been the EDM subgenre that has built up the most momentum during 2014 so far. With increased popularity comes increased exposure, and now producer’s/DJ’s seem to be playing it out all over the place. Keeping that in mind, our hometown of Chicago does a great job of bringing in a wide variety […]

[Dubstep] Fractal – Urchin (Au5 Remix)

Au5

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, […]

[Dubstep/House] Stratus – Goonsquad EP

Stratus

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 […]

[Trap/Electronic] Rudebrat – Never Sweet, Never Bitter

Rudebrat

I’ve already grown accustom to sharing lots of dubstep with all you fine folks, but today I’m going to shake things up a bit. Hopefully that’s okay, because boy do I have a wonderful track here for you! Defined as trap soul electronic, according to Rudebrat, this producer’s most recent release is a catchy combination […]
