Top 7 Groups of MMIX (Day 2)

OK, so maybe I won't need a detailed description of why I thought these Negroes were the bee's knee caps. I shouldn't have to expound on my decisions for my elite list of conglomerate he-men.

Don't question my authority.

As Many Dopeness Credentials As One Can Fit On One Page (of blogger):

Oh, not to mention the countless Guerilla Farts and Mixes.

The Dadaism embedded in your tracks and your art is grotesque and vile, and your videos are as twisted as any Tarantino film.

Personally, I friggin' love you. Dada, you will forever remain a Bassturd favourite.

Top 7 Artists of MMIX

And so as this binding, semi-depressing, writhing, sanguine year comes to its cessation, the Electrc industry continues to volley the simple existence of mainstream and its evils. Producer after artist after DJ rise above the economical state of depression and bring the people what they so desperately need - more harmonious bullshit that'll probably leave us all deaf in 30 years time. Today I'll do you the lawful favor of recapping the year with the top artists and their stupidly fresh sounds (warning: this is a huge ass post. Apologies for the detailed descriptions are thrown in advance).


I'll start the list off with an artist you all should be well accustomed with (if you're not, just go and off yourself). Yes, I understand that his incredibly dope basslines might fool you, but he's a cutie on the inside. Sound Pellegrino really outdid themselves by signing this underrated force. I mean who else could take vocal after sample and murk them with the type of kickdrum to make the least of dancers rise and dry-hump the following whore on the dance floor? Well, obviously a couple of other artists cause he only made it to #7 on my prestigious list.

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:


I mean besides the fact that he practically - and solely (yeah fuck Rusko) - brought the Dubstep world to it's eminently broadcasted life, he might just be responsible for Bassturd's infatuation with the slow paced buildups and numbing basslines that force the twitch out of every corner of one's domepiece and collective body. Sadly, he hasn't stepped out of his Dub-influenced zone - keeping him a little lower on the list than expected. All in all he is that acclaimed nig.

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:

I Remember (Caspa Remix) - Deadmau5 & Kaskade [quite possibly the best remix of the year]

Right Hand Hi (Caspa Remix) - Kid Sister [previously posted]

Hard (Caspa & The Others 'The Dub Police Takeover Remix) - Breakage ft. Newham Generals & David Rodigan


I'm gonna safely conclude that the genesis and soul of the dopeness in his all of his tracks is elicited by the warped and folded claps he uses in his remixes. Like who the hell thinks of that? How does someone figure that a layered clap could add so much impact on a track? Tis genius. HiJack had a hefty ass year, and his peak has yet to be even remotely distinguished. Sadly enough, without the ingenious propositions, he really wouldn't have much to work around. Ah well. He gets me off my ass (no homo) every time his beats drop.

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:


OK, he's not the best looking of males, but did you hear his remix to Tinny's foreign language bomb!? Gewd gawd, help the next person that hears that in a club. He moves from "The Omega Step" to Electro feedbacks that just shatter any industrialized, musical barrier. I mean at the release of Trick O Treat On Electrc Street, I hadn't fully grasped the magnitude of his stuff. Luckily, for you, I did my Australian producer/kingpin/ sex god research, and I became a bigger fan. If only he was halfway attractive :/

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:

Not Alone (Doorly Remix) - Calvin Harris [inducted into Halloween Mixtape:Trick O Treat On Electrc Street]

London Town (Doorly's Cockney Wideboy Remix) - Man Like Me [previously posted]

Zingolo (Doorly Remix) - Tinny [wtf did she say?]


I will never understand how such acumen can be introduced to such primitive styles of music and bass. The he-man has collabed Tribal, Electro, House, Fidget, Bassline authorities into his tracks like a Mexican Crock Pot. He throws down some of the biggest kick drops ever blessed to the human ear, and he still has time to do tours and work with the greatest artists that the mainstream flow has to offer (i.e. David Guetta, Pitbull, etc.). Damn, but you all know how I "love" the mainstream. This is why you are but numba tree, Afrojack. It's fine, did I mention he's Dutch?

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:

Cool (Afrojack Remix) - Spencer & Hill [previously posted]

Better Run (Afrojack Remix) - Tocadisco & Nadia Ali

Toyfriend (ft Wynter Gordon) - David Guetta & Afrojack

Let's Make Nasty (Afrojack Remix) - Larry Tee Feat. Roxy Cottontail

Daft Sound (Original Bootleg) - Afrojack ["I just wanna sound like Daft Punk"]

#2 L-VIS 1990

Need I mention how nicely 2009 has treated this young melodious brute? I mean, yes, I've dedicated many a post to the accession of his extant fame, and I still haven't embodied just how dope this fool is. The British 19-year old Behemoth stormed the greatest labels the UK has to offer (specifically Mad Decent & Sound Pellegrino) with no hesitation or delay - except for the kinds he uses in his tracks lololololol. He's passionately produced EP's and countless re-edits just dedicated to make you and your neighbors move. One can't help to bob at his alluring noises, resonances, and vocal quirks. He just might be too massive for his own good.

Proofs of Absolute Freshness:


Doth thou need further explanation?

Numerous Proofs of Absolute, Unquestionable Two-Thousand and Nine Freshness:

Hey! (Original Mix) - Laidback Luke & Diplo

Angels (Diplo Remix) - Dirty Money

Murderer (Diplo & Jayou Remix) - The Partysquad

Keep It Goin' Louder (Diplo Remix) - Major Lazer

Turn That Shit Up (Diplo Remix) - Tom Stephan [GODZAMN WHAT A TUNE!!!!]

Get Up (Diplo Remix) - Bingo Players

Mad Decent Records  <----- his record company.

"But Edward Bassturd, what makes you so certain that your list is based on statistical authenticity and not just absurd opinion? Like who the hell do you think you are making a list?"

Yup, coolstorybro.

p.s. If you've read this far, you are a fan, and I will have your kids. Thank you :D

Humbug Mah Arse.

Bassturd says Happy Christmas ya'll!

Jew, Gentile, Muslim, Atheist, Neo-paganist, Satanist, it doesn't really matter. These elephantine tracks will sure to keep your holiday season on a positive note. Well, so what if the recession (2nd Depression) is fucking us? Everything available on my amiable blog is set at the overwhelming price of $0 (although it is encouraged that one will show support to his/her favourite artist or producer)!!!!!! It's the season of giving, and holly gee shit wit, I'ma give my ass off.

Tis OK, Santa approves:

Better Run (Afrojack Remix) - Tocadisco & Nadia Ali (B) [WHAT A TUNE!]

Miss Pacman (Oliver $ Remix) - RQM

London Town (Foamo Remix) - Man Like Me

Get Up, Yeah! (HiJack Remix) - House of Stank (B)

Blame It On The Girls (Wolfgang Gartner's Dry Dub) - Mika

Fuck & Smile (Original Mix) - Hy2RoGen & Fr3cky [thank you freshbeat!]

Toxic Is Dead (Drop The Lime Remix) - The Toxic Avenger

Russian Roulette (Chew Fu Black Russian Fix) - Rihanna [more Rihanna?]

The Pretender (Zeds Dead Ruckus Remix) - Foo Fighters (B)

Judas (Dem Slackers Remix) - Mom & Dad

Iron Man (Hostage's Iron Curtain Remix) - Gtronic

p.s. I have some ridiculous plans for the next few days (you know with New Years right around the corner), so I've been trying to space out posts... you know, for economical reasons. I can't wait! Don't think I'd forget about you guys are something silly.

Rub On Deez Dubz

As the Dubstep undertaking pile drives the music industry from every angle of it's formidable ass, artists are forced to constantly exculpate an array of new sounds and measures to the genre in order to keep up with the ridiculous demand. With that being established, frankly, some of the quickly produced (and not looked over) sounds sound like acclaimed shit. It's not like Fidget, where every track produced or remixed is enjoyable at a degree. You really have to be picky and critical when cinching full 320's or you'll fall under the disastrous BH's (Bassline Headaches) that this loving category of music likes to offer.

Or you can just trust my imperial judgment.

Wobble Wobble:

Flashback (L.A. Boxers Remix) - Calvin Harris (B)

Sun To Me (Emalkay Remix) - Faithless

Hypercaine (Nero Dubstep Mix) - DJ Fresh (B)

Black Mags (The Widdler Remix) - The Cool Kids [tis a tad old.. ah well!]

Horse Step (Original Mix) - Doorly (B) [Dub-Electro? thanks nicenoiz!]

Night By Night (Skream Remix) - Chromeo

Wings Of The Morning (DZ Remix) - Capleton ft Method Man

A little less Treble?:

Place For Us (Monsieur Adi Remix) - Reni Lane (B)

Bulletproof (Tepr Remix) - La Roux

Shooting Stars (Cassian Remix) - Bag Raiders (B)

Dey Stay Slackin'

I mean, OK, I've labeled them on a couple of my posts (and a mixtape) with the expectation that there could be no way in hell they could amount doper than their epically proportional (and previously posted) Fuck House Remix; deservingly enough, I have been poorly mistaken. It appears as though ever since their signing to Lee Mortimer's Wearhouse Label, they've owned an entire line of remixes streamed from the underground club. I not Edward Bassturd will do the lackadaisical honors of introducing them to Bassturd's Wurd.

And I'm supposed to be finishing an English project ^-^

Procrastination's a biatch:

Rockerman (Dem Slackers Remix) - Foamo

San Frandisco (Dem Slackers Remix) - Headshotboyz (B)

Snail Trail (Original Mix) - Dem Slackers (B)

You're the go-getter type, you say? I see:

We Love Animals - Crookers feat. Crookers ft Soulwax & Mixhell

No Security (Hot City Remix) - Crookers feat. Kelis [Jesus, how many remixes are there?]

That Drum's Still Beating

I have been a major fan of the pixelated artist ever since hearing the formidable "Baltic Pine" EP, but I never thought his dexterity would reach such nonsensical heights. Boy 8-Bit (of Mad Decent) reinspires a seemingly supernatural track with enticing, mesmerizing vocals and lyrics along with probably one of the sickest, simplest bassline/bassdrops I've ever had the honor of hearing.

Mr. 8-Bit, if there was any doubt of your skill before, it has been shot down like the self-esteem of a rat's asshole upon trap penetration. Have no fear, you are the omega shit.

Such an almighty sound:

Drumming Song (Boy 8-Bit Remix) - Florence & The Machine (B)

So you're more a 64-Bit person? It's fine I gotchu:

Never Too Late (Don Diablo's Sellout Sessions Dub) - Don Diablo

Businessman (DZ Remix) - Crookers feat. Wiley & Thomas Jules

BarStar Shuffle (Kyle Watson's Crunk That Remix) - Titus 1 Ft MC Freeflow

Only a Fool (AC Slater Vocal Remix) - Adam Freeland (B)

Isn't That Powerful?

Trust me, this track has deserved a proper remix (retouch, re-edit, re-interpretation...SOMETHING AND EVERYTHING) since the dawn of its 1989 12''-White Label-debut into the pre-mature house scene. With the exception that most of us have lived through a majority of two decades of fail (and I mean faaaaaaiiiiiiiiilllllllure) with regards to a "proper" remix, I'll present you one that is - without lack of a better term - Godly.

Ah. am. excited.:
House Of God (Electric Soulside Remix) - D.H.S. (B)

Maybe you're just too good for his grace:

Supply & Demand (D.I.M. Remix) - Fischerspooner

Get Away (Evo Remix) - DJ Generous (B)

Apocalypse Theme (12th Planet & Flinch Remix) - Dave Nada

Heh, you think I'm musically bias and will only post Electrcl prowess? Why, how judgmental of you!:

Games You Can Win - RJD2 feat. Kenna [Thank you BlindI!]

Song For No One - Miike Snow (B) [I LOVE THIS DAMN SONG.]

$50 or more.

The King and Me

Along with the EP's and remixes I plan to release within the month - given that the permitting time off for Christmas break... really allows some time off - I'll squeeze and jam some more tracks into the everyday, unculturized youth that plagues my neighboring town, state, and hopefully country.

I'm gonna introduce you to a buddy of mine, L-Vis 1990 (real name: James Connoly <-- who cares?). He's a doper kinda guy, dropping cut-throat beat after, on top, in, and out of beat.

Welcome L-Vis to Bassturd's Wurd. I'm sure the additional fame will boost your producing qualities three fold!

Y, thaynk ya very muhch:

IC19 (L-Vis 1990 Remix) - Buraka Som Sistema (B)

Hey! (L-Vis 1990 Remix) - Diplo & Laidback Luke (B)

In for the Kill (L-Vis 1990 RIP Hyper Bass Remix) - La Roux [Yes, the style is a little quicker than usual; it's called Hyper Bass]

Maybe you just can't dig it:

Make Some Noise (Nadastrom Rework) - Bart B More vs Dj Kool [thank you el3ctronight!]

Ahhhh Yeaaaaa - DJ Skeet Skeet (B)

Play the Record Again - AC Slater (B)

Outta My Life (Touch Mix) - Deadmau5 & Billy Newton Davis [New Deadmau5!]

hoo ha

saTURDay (III) - Shoop!

I mean I spent a majority of two weeks working through the ins and outs of stocked Ableton library, cramming midi after midi until my head cried; one can understand why I didn't feel like making a super cool label for my remix.


Yes, I have successfully recorded and completed my first remix, and let me acknowledge the hardship that it was. Oh, so what if I don't own any pricey equipment. I wasn't gonna let that deplete my desire for my own input into the world of remixes and re-edits. Hopefully, I did just that.

*pats self on back*


320 kbps remix of 90's classic = I do big things.

Ish Yo Bierthdai!


I promised a good friend that I'd give him a big shout out (again). If you didn't know - by miraculous event - it's his birthday, and he wants you all to know. Once in a while, you might catch me doing one of these, but I usually have a planned route of exposing the (modern music) with an explicit theme and all; don'tcha worry.

Oh, hey, what do you know! I have one for today too. All Japanese artists. Hai!


Fences (Neo Tokyo Remix) - Phoenix (B)

Forever (Steve Aoki Remix) - Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil' Wayne, & Eminem  (B)

Here Come Da - A1 Bassline

Electro Sixteen (Shinichi Osawa Remix) - Benny Benassi Vs. Iggy Pop [bit of an oldie, but equally amazing!]

In For the Kill (Last Japan Scream Re-edit) - La Roux [...even if he's black]

Since Joseph the Builder might not like any of these, let's go with white people:

Paparazzi (Religion Remix) - Lady Gaga (B)

If I Only Had the Time

Oh, how I'd only like some time. I think going to the Wizard would actually fault me; ya see, I've dedicated myself yet again to the wonderful world of high school theatry, and our prized musical for 2010 is indeed the Wizard of Oz.

Don't be fooled by the overshadowing of a hefty schedule, I'll still be keeping the general coolment of the immediate youth in my list of top priorities; but please be mindful of the commiserate fact that I am in high school, I do have a lady, and I am volunteering my time to theatrically indulge myself in the robotic impersonation of the hallowed Tin Man.

*overwhelmed with applause*

Why thank you, thank you, thank you all!


Oh, one more thing:

Raining Blood (FnDannyBoy Remix) - Slayer

Animal (Punks Jump Up Remix) - Miike Snow [<--a little old, but still a remix of one of my favorite EP's of all time!]

London Town (Doorly's Cockney Wideboy Remix) - Man Like Me (B)

3 Words (Steve Angello Bootleg) - Cheryl Cole (B)

No Security (Bart B More Remix) - Crookers feat. Kelis

She Turns Around (Hook N Sling Remix) - David Vendetta

Wait, you don't like anything Electrc? Damn, sucks for you dude. Good thing I'm the shit:

Material Girl - Drake feat. Colin Munroe

Is It Real Love - Ryan Leslie (B) [Thank you BlindI!]

*drops mic*
