We Can Make The World Stop
The Glitch Mob

The title track from the group’s EP released July 12 is not dubstep, but a combination of electronic, glitch hop, synthpop and industrial.

If that description isn’t enough to make you to check it out, then I don’t know what is.

The track incorporates the sound of violins and guitars, two things that aren’t common in the electro music genre, and its beat makes it a great track to dance to. I’ve seen this group live twice in the past few months and they are just as energized on stage as they are on the album. With The Glitch Mob’s fresh new style, “We Can Make The World Stop” is bound to make your world stop – at least for three minutes and 27 seconds.

Upside Down

Lorin Ashton, more commonly known by his stage name Bassnectar, classifies his music as “freestyle amorphous music.”

Lately, I’ve been interested in artists who combine different elements of multiple genres to create a new genre of their own. Most people probably think of dubstep when they think of Bassnectar, but this track from his latest album, “Divergent Spectrum,” simply cannot be confined to one category.

Released Aug. 3, “Upside Down” is electronic music at its finest – a combination of drum and bass, dubstep and hip hop. And for all you fans of heavy bass drops, you won’t be disappointed.
