Interview with Adventure Club conducted by DubstepRemix.Org on October 23rd, 2011.
1. Before forming a duo in early 2011, were you guys already friends, or just two guys who met, had things in common and decided to make music together?
We've been friends since high school, involved in a bunch of different musical projects. However, we only decided to have a go at EDM music in 2011.
We got tired of lugging guitars, amps, drums around. Now, we just sit in a basement, drinking embarrassing amounts of energy dranks... (Energy drink sponsorship anyone?) and yes, we know they're terrible for you. We're actually super neurotic health freaks, but since we started this Adventure Club, we kind of let some of that slip...
2. How did you guys get discovered? Can I even ask this? =]
If I could write in exact detail how it kind of came together, I would. However, we weren't planning on, it just came along as we kept releasing songs.
We sent songs to blogs, youtube channels, a couple picked them up. Slowly, more friendly internet people starting posting our traxxx everywhere.
Love the internet.
3. Some hip hop artists are heavily influenced by Bruce Lee and Kung fu movies, what are your inspirations when it comes to making music with unique and distinct sounds?
Jayden Jaymes, Flux Pavillion, anddd Pop pUnk.
4. How would you describe yourself in one word? (Leighton = ?) (Christian = ?)
Christian = Expecto Patronum
Leighton = Rictusempra
7. You guys seem busy lately, what have you been up too?
Our touring schedule has been filling out quite nicely lately, that along with school, writing music and girlfriends.
Having a decent social life with our friends is tough. Lol@sleeping.
8. Lastly, if I gave you two plane tickets to anywhere in the world, where would you guys go? And why?
A Bali beach. Cause it's a Bali beach. But it would have to be a sunny Bali beach. gloomy Bali beaches suck.
When do we get our tickets?
Interviewer's Ending Comments: I've followed Adventure Club since the beginning, and was hooked when I heard their distinct style! I remembered being there when some random guy on Youtube was claiming their tracks as his own and people actually believed that guy, that's how far back Adventure Club had been. Now they are a super success, and it's only a matter of time before they become well-known heavyweights like Skrillex. I had a blast doing an interview with these two and wish them the very best. Maybe one day I will be able to afford to buy them two tickets to Bali, or maybe they can buy me one. =]

Another new dubstep producer on the scene. This time its Kayplex hailing out of Miami, USA. The funny thing is looking through the album I saw there was a track featuring Mike Diva. I remember coming across this guys channel and having a good laugh seeing his Sexy Sax Man videos. It seems alot of people on Youtube are collaborating with one another here and there. Anyways back to Kayplex, this shit is dope, this is in 320kbps, and finally this shit is FREE, so what are you waiting for? Come get it now! Loose Dirt EP!
This is my 2nd absolute favorite off the Until The Light Takes Us album by At Dawn We Rage. Honestly, 1st, 2nd, they are both so close I can switch them around all day depending on my mood. This is one hell of a melodic tune, chill and faded status approved. Highly recommended that you guys get the whole album!
I've got a nice treat for you guys today, a full entire Dubstep EP by "At Dawn We Rage" in full 320kbps sweetness. This is by far my favorite tune on the album next to More and More. I've got those two on repeat for a while now and I figure its time to stop being so damn greedy and share it. Now you may share with your friends as well. Get the full album on our forum now!
Back with another tHORAX dub track, this one is called Skinnny Genes and boy is this shit awesome! Just chill back and enjoy the melodic synths with a
side gargantuan dish of bass and distortion. This is a whopping 18 MBs, quality can't get any more crisp than that! Wiiiiiild.
Interview with Grizzly J conducted by DubstepRemix.Org on October 10th, 2011.
1) How did you hear about dubstep, and how did you get started in it?
i think i first heard about dubstep from a friend of mine who was showing me a lot of glitch hop. at that point i was producing a bunch of different styles of electronic music and was excited to try making something a lot slower and more subby than i was used to.
2) How long have you been producing and DJing?
i've been producing music in one form or another for 6 or 7 years. when i first started producing i was using garage band to record and layer myself playing guitar, bass, and drums, and gradually started incorporating electronic sounds until eventually i started making "purely" electronic tunes. at a certain point i got bored using garage band to produce and got ableton live, which i've been using ever since. i've been djing for about 4 years.
3) What do you think of the Cali dub scene compared to the rest of the US? And the world?
to be honest i have been really immersed in the california bass music scene and haven't gotten to travel too far out of california, but i can definitely say that the california bass music scene is totally big and thriving and moving in a million different directions at once. there are so many talented producers and dj's out here as well as amazing crews who put huge amounts of time and energy and love into manifesting some really amazing gatherings. it is totally inspiring and exciting to get to be part of it all!
4) Do you know of any other Dubstep producers from Cali worth mentioning?
yeah absolutely! california has a huge bass music scene and there are way too many amazing producers to even begin to name them all... minnesota is a really dope producer also out of santa cruz who makes really beautiful bass music at a bunch of different tempos, another favorite of mine is megalodon, a crew out of berkeley who produce some really clean, heavy dubs... also one of my favorite producers/dj's these days is dov, who runs muti music. his dj sets are by far some of the best i've ever gotten to see, he spins a super eclectic mix of seriously next level bass music at every imaginable tempo and style... super inspiring to say the least!
5) What's something not a lot of people know about you?
i'm a vegan
6) And whats the craziest thing you've ever done in your life?
hmmm, it is difficult to say... i definitely had some crazy experiences at burning man this year!
7) And our final question for this interview is if you could change one thing about this world? What would it be?
i don't know! there are a lot of things about the world i'd like to change.... i guess i'd probably first just want to make sure everyone has food and water!
Interviewer's Ending Comments: Grizzly is definitely one of my favorite producers, and is a California product that I'm very proud of! Producing some of my personally favorite tracks. I love love melodies, sweet 420, addictive synths and 8bit sounds, and Grizzly J definitely incorporates all of these into his music! Maybe its the California Bass thing. =]
Grizzly J's dopest tunes:
Witness - Farewell (Grizzly J Bootleg)
Sexual Prey - Ground (Grizzly J Remix)
Grizzly J - 420 Dubstep Mixtape
Grizzly J's interview conducted exclusively by DubstepRemix.Org!
So I was just going through my collection of Dub tunes. I realize I have over 30,000 tracks of all kinds all over the place that I really just don't know what to do with. Anyways, this track is about a year old, but hasn't been posted up yet and is just too sick to miss. If you've already heard, no worries, there are other updates today! =] Enjoy!
Superginger drops another sick banger this one is called Stalkz - Local MC's. Bounce to this Hip Hop Dubstep track!
Modestep does it again. Highly energetic beat, and captivating vocals that though simple really carries a strong message. This is a dope ass tune too good not to download. Be sure to check out the music video below, that's what I'll be doing when I'm 80 years old, snorting a line off a young girl's ass as the bass pounds away on my hearing aids! I'll be sporting Dre Beats Hearing Aids!
The monsterstep madness continues! Halloween will not be the same again. This year will be full of blood, gore, violence, sex, candy, and BASSface!! Trick or treat, give me some BASS!
Hmm, maybe I can put something cool together for you guys in the next few days...stay tuned! =]
