The second show of 2013 and it was full of some serious music this week. We started the show again with last weeks Head 2 Head winner which was SKREAM – BLUE EYEZ! Absolute awesome track! See last weeks post for what I think :)

Head To Head Track OF The WEEK!!!
So last week I took it back to the start of Dubstep, with 2 artists and 2 massive tracks that got me in to Dubstep from the start! But this week, I’ve taking it to 2 Dubstep producers who have carried the Genre as it is now for the last year or 2, both releasing new EP’s I took a taster from each one:
Skrillex – Reason
From the “Leaving EP” which is only available for subscribers to “The Nest” (To find out more about the nest click HERE)
This new EP has left people seeing Skrillex in a whole new light, the 2 tracks “Leaving” and this one “Reason” are shying away form the usual Skrillex sound, and to be honest everyone I have spoken to loves it! so maybe a new direction for Skrillex? Who knows, but this track was up against:
Flux Pavilion – One Two Three (Make your body wanna)
This track is coming off the Flux Pavilions “Blow The Roof” EP – which is due for release on the 28th January (So not long guys) He has given this track from the EP away for free when you sign up to his mailing list, to get this track for FREE CLICK HERE!! All the spinets I’ve heard from the EP sound awesome, again going in a slightly different direction to his usual self, this track is an absolute banger!
The headline track “Blow the roof” from the EP is currently being played on radios everywhere and is also AWESOME!
so we had some big time contest here for out H2H track of the week!
Skrillex’s “Reason” track is a great track, demonstrating his versatility in production and I think it is going to get a lot of love from the EDM scene but today my winner had to be Flux Pavilions – One Two Three (Make Your Body Wanna) as it just makes me want to dance, and gives me some added energy that “Reason” doesn’t, and therefore is this weeks T.O.T.W!!!
I also mentioned on the show about DnB legend, guru, godfather (whatever you want to call him) – Goldie, has been in the scene for 20 years in 2012, so his label “Metalheadz” and “ffrr” are combining to launch a ‘Goldie – Best of’ 3 disc album, which is set to launch in March 2013, (More info Click HERE!)
I did also mention towards the end of the show I would post the video for Delta Heavys – Get by so here it is:
