Following my first post with a bunch of awesome Dubstep remixes, here’s a list of more great stuff I found while getting my ears dirty on the interwebz.
First off, there’s a fan vid that got me hooked not just for the music, but also for the film it takes its images from: Sucker Punch by Zack Snyder, the director of the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, another one of my favorite movies. Go on and watch them. Both. You will not be disappointed (if you share my taste )!
So here goes – more Dubstep goodness!
- Requiem For A Dream, Dubstep Remix- Vekta – It’s got the slow, dragging, unnerving quality of the original soundtrack, but still features some dynamic drops, mixed with a few vocals from the film here and there. Very well done!
- Linkin Park – What I’ve Done Dubstep Remix – Yep, more Linkin Park. This one starts slow and drops into the action at about 1 minute in. A nice long piece, too.
- Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know ft. Kimbra (KDrew Dubstep Remix) – It probably depends on what you think of this love-it-or-hate-it song, but there are some tight drops at about 1:30 in. Actually, I only stumbled upon it after I got hooked on this awesome parody of the song.
- [DUBSTEP] CALL ME MAYBE – Amun Ra – I’m still unable to wrap my head around how awesome I find this one. It feels like my eyes are gonna pop out. It certainly pushes the edge of what I would call music, but I’m loving it. Make sure you are seated at 0:49 in.
- Trololo (Dubstep Remix by Tactus) – So full of internet! <3
In my university’s research group, there’s a traditional weekly seminar known as „Kaffee und Technik“, where people will show each other tricks and methods they learned in the course of their research. Recently having taught myself a working knowledge of simple binary data storage and readout with Python, I compiled a little lecture on the subject.
Hoping that someone out there might also find this useful, I’m posting my slides here:
In case you’re wondering: The editor I am using is wxHexEditor. I found it to be a very good hex editor, with many more capabilities than most others out there. It is actively being developed and works equally well on Windows and Linux. It even compiled without any dependency hassle on an oldish system of mine.
So, if you’re looking for a good hex editor, try wxHexEditor. The project’s homepage is somewhat of a hassle to navigate around, but it’s definitely worth it.
There’s hardly anything in the history of music that has not spawned a Dubstep remix on Youtube by now. However, I don’t find many of those to be terribly well done, and so I’m posting a personal list of
ten eight good Dubstep remixes found on Youtube. This is by no means supposed to be a top ten eight list, it’s just a few tracks I really liked. Feel free to point out your own favorites in the comments!
First, to show you how I got hooked on Dubstep, this is the awesome Tetris remix that that blew me away at the #tassebier after-party of the 28c3 congress in Berlin at the end of 2011:
So now, here goes my list!
The Star Wars Dubstep. – This video has many dislikes, which I guess are from disgruntled Star Wars fans hostile to any desecration of their sacred story. I don’t care, I love the the sound!
Numb (Dubstep Version NZ GPERS) – this remix of Linkin Park – Numb has almost no vocals and makes for some nice, smooth listening. Also, cool video.
Narcoticz Dubstep – Pirates of the Caribbean (Dubstep Remix) – Another movie theme remix. This one starts off with cheap synth drums, but bear with it, it’s great after a minute or so.
Linkin Park – Numb [Dubstep Remix] – this remix of Linkin Park – Numb has almost Pop-ish female vocals, but some much tigther wubs than the other one.
Für Elise – DUBSTEP REMIX (HD) – A classic masterpiece, very nicely done with booming base drops and the well-known melody.
Eminem – Lose Yourself (Bo biz Dubstep Remix) in Audiosurf 1080P HD HIGH bitrate – Great adaptation of this song, overlaid with images from a music video game played to the song.
Nyan Cat (Alex S. Dubstep Remix) – My very favorite dubstep remix so far, no questions asked! Nothing needs to be said as to how epic this is.
With all the fun you can have here, never forget the dangers of Dubstep. Always keep this in mind:
