Noisia – Alpha Centauri (Excision & Datsik Remix)
October 16, 2012
Sounds similar to: Rusko, Bassnectar, Diplo
When someone tells you something like “Oh dubstep? Yeah, I looooove dubstep. That Skrillex is awesome.” Ask them these two things “Oh yeah, I thought ‘Slats, slats, slats’ was better than ‘Scary Monsters’. What’d you think?” and then follow up with “So what other dubstep artists do you like?” Chances are, they don’t know anything about dubstep, really, and if they cannot think of anyone besides Skrillex that does dubstep, they’re just another of many bandwagoners who truly have no concept of the movement. However, we can forgive their ignorance and show them how truly EPIC good dub is. Case in point:
Datsik. Considered to be one of the original DJ’s to get down and dubby, Datsik’s compilations and mixes always seem to make my head ‘esplode with his Picasso-ish reworks of songs. Excision is also coming along nicely these days, he’s been lucky lately to keep teaming up with the right mix of artists to create unique songs that show great potential. A tidbit about the original artist here: the name NOISIA comes from a VHS tape that was turned upside down that read “VISION” (do you see it? NOISIA:VISION). Without further ado, I turn you over to the dubstep fiends, who will help you lose your mind in the electronic dub-wonderland!
