Bassnectar has released a remastered version of a classic remix in tribute of the late DJ/composer/producer Cheb i Sabbah. The song, Alkher Illa Doffor, was originally featured on Bassnectar’s 2007 studio album Underground Communication. Bassnectar wrote on his soundcloud:
Cheb i Sabbah was a musical pioneer, fusing together entire cultures of sound and music, pushing cutting edge blends of traditional songs with beats and ideas which were way ahead of his time.
“Chebiji” as he was affectionately known passed away November 6, 2013 at the age of 66, and we are releasing this special remaster as a benefit to his family: he has two kids and three grandkids, who are largely dependent on him. All the proceeds from this remix will go straight to the family.
Not only can you add this great remix to your library for as little as $1, but you can also support a worthy cause. Hit the “download” to get the track and for more info.

Skrux hits another homerun with his new song “Being Human”. The chill and emotionally compelling melody is stellar enough, but once the soothing vocals of Mona Moua kick in, it really sends it over the edge. A perfect blend! Skrux is one of the most underrated EDM talents at the moment IMO, with every one of his productions being so on point. You can give the artist a well deserved ‘like” on Facebook for the FREE DOWNLOAD. Enjoy!

Collin Mcloughlin has given Coldplay’s Fix You an absolutely stellar dubstep remix. He manages to maintain the emotion and mellowness of the original, something that so many remixes prior have failed to accomplish. The vocal cuts during the chorus and the melody supporting Chris Martin’s vocal sections are mesmerizing. It’s crazy to consider the fact that just last year, Collin was a strong contender on Season 3 of The Voice, and now he’s producing some amazingly fresh melodic dubstep. This is one hell of a versatile artist.

Krafty Kuts , the undisputed “king of breaks”, gets some help from Stero:Type for his 2013 Halloween Mini Mix. Showcasing their insane level of talent, they manage to seamlessly mix 28 songs in less than 5 minutes! The fact these two producers weren’t listed in djmag’s top 100 DJs is very surprising, and is evidence enough that it’s complete BS.
