5 Dirtiest Dubstep Drops Of The Week: Vol. 14

Somebody needs to constantly supervise these disorderly drops, why not you?

This segment is running slightly behind schedule this week, so we would like to take a brief moment to thank you for your patience. Following days upon days of intense deliberation, our experts cautiously crafted Volume 14 of our sassy little series. It wasn’t easy, and there were some tough tunes to eliminate along the way, but in the end, we’re 100% certain that we settled on five of our most grotesque drops to date.

5. Isqa - Red

We love dirty drops that depend on creativity! Lots of producers nowadays are capable of concocting hard and heavy dubstep tracks, but the true gems are the tunes that leave you struggling to pick your jaw up off of the floor. When we first came across Isqa’s recently released Melancolor EP for the first time, we had a strong feeling that there would be some bass music treasure buried in this flawlessly engineered production. Let’s just say that when it came to songs like “Control” & “Red,” it was definitely a case of love at first listen. Locking itself into this week’s #5 position, the latter banger is decked-out with a couple of drops not afraid to defecate wherever they please. Yeah, they’re that disgusting! Isqa’s not cleaning up his act anytime soon, so you all better get used to it.

4. Soberts - Rando (Code: Pandorum Remix)

Can we just take a moment to say that Code: Pandorum is consistently putting out some of the filthiest of filthy dubstep tunes. If this producer sleeps, we’re fairly certain that all he dreams about is waking up the next day and completely annihilating the dance music universe with limitless quantities of deafening bass! Surrender is likely your best hope for survival, but between you and us, your odds of living are looking pretty slim regardless. After you press play on this hefty remix of Soberts’ “Rango,” it won’t be long till we wheel out your tombstone. “Here lies, INSERT YOUR NAME HERE, he/she thought he/she could handle the heaviness of Code: Pandorum, but alas, the human body is not designed to withstand the rigors of bass thrashings that insanely brutal.” Drops this deadly belong in a morgue!

3. Truth - The Only Ones

We’ve brought you crazy, we’ve brought you heavy, but now we’re gearing up to go deeper than we’ve ever gone before. Are you prepared to join us on what promises to be an exhilarating expedition to the center of the earth? I hope so, because you’re coming along for the ride whether you’re ready or not. Firepower Records dished out Truth’s Hollow World LP a couple weeks ago and the 14-track album revolves around a wide assortment of different EDM genres. However, here at your go-to headquarters for everything dirty drop related, we’re only concerned about dubstep. So in that spirit, we bring you “The Only Ones.” This tune’s drops are more cluttered than a hoarder’s house, they’re messier than the most unsanitary bathrooms, and they reek so bad that you’ll never be able to completely rid yourself of the stench! Where can we sign up for more?

2. Eptic - Space Cats

Most weeks, Eptic could very well edge out everybody else for our #1 spot. But this isn’t most weeks - and as amazing as “Space Cats” is, you’ll soon understand why we couldn’t award it this week’s lead pole position. Set to be released today on Never Say Die / UKF Vol. 3, this downright mental dubstep tune eats you up from the inside out! What is it about Eptic’s productions that separate them from all the rest? Relentless bass? Yes. Tenacious synth work? You know it. And how could we forget drops so nasty that you’ll swear you’re cruising around the cosmos in an oversized (and overfilled) litter box? Shame on us! To put it simply, if you’re an advocate for merciless dubstep drops and not listening to Eptic on a regular basis, it might be in your best interest to reconsider your stance.

1. SPACE LACES - Digital Gangsta

Officially due out today on Rottun RecordsSPACE LACES essentially invited himself to our dirty drop soiree with this spotlight-swiping track! Plenty of producers have been deploying this skull-buster in their live sets for quite awhile, but now you’ll finally be able to blast it from the comfort of your own home. What’s even more impressive is the fact that the entire bass music community has embraced this traumatic banger like none other. We can’t even begin to tell you how many countless musicians we’ve noticed comment, re-post, or mention “Digital Gangsta” through various social media avenues. It was a truly surreal sight to behold. SPACE LACES is guaranteed to hit the spot with this pair of disobedient dubstep drops - we give you our word.
