Man, would you believe it, I totally forgot to post this when it came out!
In June 2011, pioneering dubstep/drum and bass producers, Nero, teamed up with the world-famous BBC Philharmonic. The result is this unique blend between two music genres. It’s very cinematic almost Don Davis and Juno Reactor-ish … oh and when I first watched this – my word to describe it was – EPIC …
Dubstep / DnB / Electro & Breakbeat producer ShwoN makes is blazin debut on High Chai Recordings with Ghengiz ShwoN. This 20 year old dj/producer from L.A. seamlessly blends influences of heavy metal, new and old school hip-hop and EDM appealing to a wide variety of music lovers around the world.
ShwoN‘s fresh EP – released on Aug 30th 2011, kicks off with the infectious Drumstep jumper “Take Me Back” followed by the cheeky, dark comedy Dubstep stylings of “Porkchop Sandwiches,” both sure to gain favor amongst bass djs. “Rage” closes out the EP with a cinematic zombie shuffle that would serve well as the background score to any of the Resident Evil video games.
Transnational Dubstep is the first major compilation to document the fusion of dubstep and global roots music. It has been conceptualized & compiled by co-owner/editor & the driving force behind the Generation Bass blog, DJ UMB in cooperation with Six Degrees Records. The record pulls together some of the most exciting new producers in electronic music who are incorporating sounds from around the planet with the bass bin shaking thump of dubstep.

One evening with a few spare hours, a crazy idea, some video footage later…
The result …. A cracking remix by Anuj Rastogi (OMNESIA) of Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard‘s original composition “Why So Serious” for the film The Dark Knight.
A brilliant dubstep mashup with Indian elements and a great video too!
