When you want to feel your body shake from bass, Coachella’s got you. Datsik, Flux Pavilion and Zeds Dead are some staples in the genre. Mt. Eden puts an ambient like overtone on a lot of tracks but you definitely know when the dubstep hits you.
Flux Pavillion is known for remixing and will be sure to put his dub-like spin on some of your favorite tracks live. He and Doctor P. have teamed up to create their recently released album Circus One, which if your brain doesn’t vibrate while listening to some of their tracks, you are probably made of stone.

Thursday, The Rapture is Upon Us

The Rapture

New York City based Indie-rock electronic-disco flavor-charged The Rapture is one of the pioneers in making your feet move in the post-punk era. The band formed back in ’98 and shortly after released the 6 song EP Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks. They have 3 full length studio albums including Echoes (’03), Pieces of the People We Love (’06) and In the Grace of Your Love (’11).

They are signed to DFA Records founded by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. They’ve toured with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Daft Punk, Mogwai and The Cure. You can compare their sound to Datarock and !!! and they are similar, however a little less “synthie” than LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost! and Is Tropical. Their Album Echoes was runner up to The White Stripes for 2003’s Album of the Year by Pitchfork.

Current members of the band- Luke Jenner (vocals, guitar), Vito Roccoforte (drums) and Gabriel Andruzzi (keys, sax, bass and vocals).

Listen- “How Deep is Your Love”

Listen- “No Sex For Ben”
