5 Dirtiest Dubstep Drops Of The Week: Vol. 6

Another week, another set of downright nasty drops. What else is new?

Oh no, dirty dubstep is rumbling out of your speakers again. You know what that must mean? It’s time for Volume 6 of our filth-coated segment here at the one and only EDM.com. For those of you yet to witness the kind of grime-oriented activities we partake in around these parts, there’s never been a better time to join our cause. Featuring some of our most diverse drops to date, this latest installment is full of all different types of dubstep. Be sure to grab your hazmat suit—you’re going to need it!

5. Fractal - Urchin (VOLANT Remix)

If this song didn’t make it onto this week’s list, I knew I was going to have some trouble sleeping tonight. Luckily for me (and all of you as well), VOLANT’s massive remix of Fractal’s “Urchin” fell ever so gently into our number five spot. Some of you may have your doubts about the dirtiness of these drops, but I assure you that they are more disgusting than the oldest piece of underwear you own! Consisting of three drops total, each one is increasingly more insane than the next. This dubstep therapy is just what the doctor ordered!

4. Torqux - No Way Back

Most weeks, there’s a good chance that this track would’ve found itself resting peacefully in the number one or two spot. However, because of the boatload of grime we received this week, Torqux’s “No Way Back” slid down into our number four slot. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Formerly known to many as Torqux & Twist, the duo recently dropped the latter half of their moniker and are now known simply as, Torqux. Rich piano chords and a fluttering flute peak your curiosity at first, but nothing can prepare you for the pure and utter dubstep destruction that follows. Both drops are so filthy that I still have my doubts about whether or not they are fit for human consumption. Oh well, too late. There’s no turning back now.

3. LAXX - Brainbug (MUST DIE! Remix)

Playing the Malcolm to our middle, MUST DIE’s remix of LAXX’s “Brainbug” clocks in at número tres. This is actually his first track to ever rise to the number one slot on Beatport. On top of that, he is far and away my favorite dubstep producer in the entire galaxy. Trust me when I say I was determined to do everything in my power to find this exceptional tune a comfortable home on this week’s countdown. Already regarded as a master of distributing paralyzing pulsations, MUST DIE!’s latest pair of debilitating drops will leave you scrambling to call an ambulance! Remember, pain is only temporary, but dope bass music lasts forever.

2. JPhelpz - Biggup King (1.8.7. Deathstep Remix)

You were always under the impression that you knew dirty dubstep...Then you met 1.8.7. Deathstep and everything changed in an instant. The filth-spewing duo from Charlotte has been making major advancements in the field of grime-infested bass tunes, so it’s about damn time they get the recognition they deserve. Most recently, the guys gave out this incredibly thunderous remix of JPhelpz’s “Biggup King” for free. If you thought the original version was big, just wait till you get your hands on this roaring re-creation. Constructed with two equally disorienting drops, it’ll only take a matter of milliseconds until you can’t tell which way is up or down! Do you think you can handle the heaviness? There’s only one way to find out.

1. Slum Village - Fall In Love (Moody Good Remix)

Please tell me that everyone out there is just as excited with the current progress of the Moody Good movement as I am? Because that is what it seems like. This producer was formerly half of 16bit , but nowadays he’s making marvelous music on his own. His new remix of Slum Village’s “Fall In Love” has been receiving a ton of love from the EDM community, and for good reason. It’s colossal! It’s sensational! And most importantly, it’s 100% free! Yes, it’s true that the two drops don’t pack quite the same firepower as some of the earlier tracks on our list, but do you know what they do have? A uniqueness and exquisiteness that is unrivaled by any other drop I’ve ever come across! How one musician can make all those zany sounds, I’ll never know. Moody Good’s music is the definition of dirty. Period, end of conversation.
