Mr. Skeleton

There isnt much info floating around on Mr. Skeleton. Which is so suprising when you go through his soundcloud. The amount of comments he has on every track is insane! He really has his own sound with lots of random old tv samples thrown in right before massive drops and intense builds. From what i can gather he is only 22 aswell so without doubt we'll be hearing loads more from this kid.

Here is one he is giving out for free (this is one of my new favourites) . You can grab the rest from Beatport.

This Stereoliez remix is his latest masterpiece. Its that good you'll buy this one right now!

Sick Bubblegum - Skrillex Remix

Never one to dissapoint, Skrillex takes Rob Zombies classic tune 'Sick Bubblegum' and reworks it just like you would imagine he would. I think this track suits Skrillex's style a lot more than some of his other remix's purely because of Mr. Zombies angry vocals throughout and of course the build up and drops are next level like always. Get on this one asap!!!

March Mix Bag

Shit Melbourne weather has kept me inside this morning, so I scoured my itunes for some favorites. Here we go.

The new Boysnoize & Housemeister collabo ep "Shizzo" definitely lived up to its hype.Personally my favourite is "Saturday". Check it out in 192 here and then go to Beatport and buy the whole EP.

Boysnoize & Housemeister -Saturday

I really get the feeling this song would have got a lot of coke parties in Miami grooving in the 80 and 90's. 30 years down the track and this number still hasn't lost any of its shine.

Laid Back -Cocaine Cool

I have been really enjoying some down tempo chill out tunes lately, perfect for kicking back with a beer and sinking deep into the couch. Japan's own Grooveman Spot gives you something to unwind to.

Grooveman Spot-Ponsonby Beat Down

I hate it when your make the ignorant mistake of seeing an artists material and for some reason you just ignore it. Then later down the track you actually give them the time of day and realise what a fucking idiot you were for dismissing them the first time around. Sound familiar? Planes don't drop bombs! Mr Skeleton does.

Defunct! Feat.Mr Eyez- Check The Method ( Mr Skeleton Remix) POW!!!!

Stephan Bodzin & Marc Romboy just released their 3cd album "Luna", nothing but mind melting techno is all I can expect from the release. I only recently stumbled this insane remix that Gaiser from Richie Hawtins M.nus label did , this is pure Berlin style minimal/tech.

Marc Romboy Vs Stephan Bodzin - Triton (Gaiser Remix)

Probably up there with my favorite releases of 2010 comes Dirtybird honcho Justin Martin and 20 year old prodigy Ardalan.I think I have listened to this over a hundred times and it just seems to get better.Sampling both The Avalanches and Pharrel Williams, this was a true anthem of 2010.

Justin Martin & Ardalan -Mr Spock
Heres a vid of Claude Vonstroke Dropping It At The Movement Festival.

And to go out with a major BANG!!!! Here's a little something from Norwegian Aniki, in my opinion he is one of the only people around who still manages to make listenable fidget. Remember what that sounded like?

Local Love part. 2

We really need to start featuring the 'local love' post a lot more here on Smidgem. Considering the amount of up and coming talent that is coming through the ranks in Australia is so impressive!

First up we have Canberra based Dj/Producer Offtapia. He would have to be one of the most impressive Djs to watch live, he reads the crowd so well every set is better than the last. Big things to come so stay tuned for plenty more from this guy.
Here is a very bouncy bootleg that Offtapia recently sent me.

Still staying in the nations capital (Canberra) we have Team Wing on remix duties for The Aston Shuffle. This track starts out as a super mellow house jam with an epic vocal throughout but once that drivey bassline comes in..... Well listen for yourself.

Now we head over to the beachside town of Wollongong where these two kids have been making plenty of waves. Narrator & Ruslan teamed up to bring us this monster of a track, The breakdown is way cool, i found myself with this on repeat for ages..

Finally we head down to Melbourne to check out some fresh dubstep from Zayler. This kid is responsible for bringing dubstep to the streets down there with hosting the now legendary parties known as Voltage. Recently hosting heavy hitters Flux Pavillion and Doctor P. Borgore due to play very soon.
Be sure to check out his blog too Daft Who? big ups.. Here we have his brand new tune 'Scorpion'. Its so bouncy and aggresive, I've had this on repeat while writing this whole post if that means anything to you..

Thrusher Wins

Smidgem's very own Thrusher (aka Lucas Wilkinson) has taken out Chemical Jump's remix competition for Gtronics 'Sucker Punch'. After first hearing his remix there was no doubt in my mind that he would make the finals but to win... WOW. Well done mate, you actually killed it!!
You can also check out the other finalists on Chemical Jump. All up they had 47 entries so for Lucas to take it out was really cool.

Heres the track again

Also check out his latest original that he just finished. The intro for it so creepy then it drops in to this monster of a dubstep destroyer. The second drop is next level.
Let the bass go pow!

Rip Nate Dogg!

Urban music lost another icon this week.Nate Dogg, famous for his cameos with Snoop,Dre& Tupac sadly passed away the other day.Cause of death is unknown at the moment but he has had suffered a number of strokes over the last few years.Making him unable to use the whole left side of his body.

Heres some of his greatest cameos.A voice to be missed.

Smidgem presents 'Badmans Riddims' mixed by Dizz

So here it is, the second installment of the 'Smidgem guestmix series.' This time we asked Sydney siders Dizz & Draz to do the honours. The boys first came to our attention with thier huge bootleg of 'fifty what' that we featured a while back. After going through thier soundcloud it was clear that the boys had been super busy with a truckload of remix's, bootlegs and some of thier own originals. So it was kind of a no brainer to get the boys on board for the second installment of the guestmix series. Although as it turns out Draz is in South America travelling with some crew so Dizz held the fort and belted this super bass heavy mix out for you. Definitly smashed through as many genres as he could here, with everything from dubstep, electro, drum and bass, hip hop etc. You definitly wont be bored through any of this. Enjoy!

Dizz - "Badman Riddims Mixtape" by Dizz And Draz

The tracklist is massive for this one so you can find it in the comments.

Bass Cannon - La Sape Remix

I must firstly apologise for the lack of posts lately, I've been sans internet for nearly a month now and it's freakin' killin' me. So as I'm posting this from the sub-par facilities of my local internet cafe, uploading tracks is not an option however I do have a little gem for you. The boys from La Sape just sent this over and I'm pretty excited about it. Taking a huge detour from the original in which they've turned a hectic Dubstep powerhouse into a nice and filthy dutch destroyer. This comes complete with ear shattering high pitch synth stabs and a huge kick drum, highly recommended.

Fix Your Face

I'm honestly not sure how these mixtape one got past me. I've seen plenty of youtube clips on Travis Barker & DJ.AM but never thought to look any further. It's a shame that no one else will ever get to see this show live again after the traggic death of DJ.AM.
Although A-Trak is now DJing alongside Travis on the drums, so maybe bigger and better things still to come... Definitly!

Anyway grab both of these mixtapes cause they're are jam packed with some great party beats. The parts where Travis battles AM 'beat for beat' is insane!

TRV$ & DJ.AM - Fix Your Face vol.2 (live from Coachella 2009)

While you're waiting for those badboys to download check this live footage..⬇
