Don Peyote Unveils Dubstep/Hardwave Hybrid “Kizuki”
A true master of sound, Don Peyote and his mind-melting catalog relentlessly break the chains of genre constraints time and time again. In 2021, his self-titled album descended from the cosmos with 13 Bass-infused heaters, ranging from Freeform to punchy Dubstep. Now, the New Orleans native returns with his second release for 2022, “Kizuki.”
Holstering a palpable swagger from the jump, “Kizuki” opens with a slew of distorted synths and warbles before descending into a frenzy of raucous beatwork. Too large to fit inside a singular box, “Kizuki” deftly fuses elements of Dubstep, Bass, and Hardwave. From start to finish, Don Peyote commands control with bestial growls, high-octane syncopation, and a pummeling bassline fit for any and every corner of Bass music’s empire.
“Kizuki was originally three, crazy Dubstep projects built with influence from different styles, i.e., Trap, Wave, Drum n’ Bass, all of that. I wanted to push the envelope further and really hone in on something special in this production, and you can feel that in the sounds!” — Don Peyote
A jack-of-all-trades, Don Peyote captivates with a sound unlike any other. Energetic, soulful, and brimming with bass, his infectious tunage has rightfully landed on respected imprints such as Electric Hawk and Headbang Society. Having performed at Buku Music Festival 2022 and more recently opening for Deadcrow at Republic NOLA, Don is now gearing up for a stream of fall shows including New Orleans’ Midnight Revival and Fête Du VOID Festival on September 30th & October 1st. With a hard-hitting, polished sound in tow, Don Peyote is catapulting toward the upper echelons of Bass music with every riveting release.

Spag Heddy Explores Human Emotions On Dubstep Single “Never Thought”
Spag Heddy returns with his new single “Never Thought,” for which he teamed up with Rock/Alt-Pop singer Micah Martin of The Zealots band. The track follows a slightly different direction for Spag, who has previously focused on intensive Bass and unique House sounds, in that it is less of a headbanging anthem than a saga through human emotion.
Opening with wistful vocals and piano melodies, he then builds into a cinematic Dubstep-style drop with some grimy synth effects that serve to truly embody the full and complex spectrum of feelings within the song. “Never Thought” may be Spag Heddy’s most emotional release to date and follows his recent release “Sorry,“ both of which are from his upcoming debut studio album ‘The Noodle Effect,’ coming out on June 16. Read on for what both Spag and Micah had to say about their stunning collaboration.
“With ‘Never Thought,’ I wanted to make a song that didn’t focus on basslines but rather on a grand, majestic melodic theme. Micah’s powerful voice and big, atmospheric style was the perfect fit for this one. His voice and lyrics gave the song emotional depth that, together with the uplifting melody and raw bass cuts, feels like a journey that ends in a big sort of space-battle climax. More than just a melodic dubstep song, to me, it’s a story of human emotion and music as an escape.” — Spag Heddy
“I was on tour with my band and recorded this topline in the trailer on an off day. Hurricane Irma had just blown into Atlanta at the same time we did, so we had to pull over. After getting out of the trailer, I realized quite a few tall trees had blown over, and maybe recording in the middle of hurricane winds in the forest wasn’t the smartest idea. I sent to Spag Heddy, and the rest is history!” — Micah Martin

“Get It On,” The New Dubstep Single From Nashville-Based Artist Effin
Nashville-based artist Effin brings the idea of eclecticism to the forefront in his newest single “Get It On.”
Having pulled inspiration from Motown and Soul styles that infiltrate his city of Nashville, Tennessee, Effin creates a single album that is rooted in originality and a diverse taste for music. His single “Get It On” includes samples from the 50s and 70’s era while encompassing a hard-hitting bass style.
Although the artist’s raw talents and drive towards his creative endeavors were always present, he has only recently realized that music isn’t just a passion, but a way of life. With this newfound ambition and desire to succeed in the world of music, Effin hopes to create a sense of community among his listeners. Whilst working tirelessly every day on an upcoming album being released later this year, Effin realized that he did not want a barrier behind his songs – he wanted to create a collage in which he put his own twist on classics he’s known and loved.
Not only does “Get It On” provide listeners with a sample of Effin’s nonconformist sound design, but he has something special in the works for listeners. An album is set to be released later this year, undoubtedly revealing even more of the artist’s raw talent and what he has to offer the world of music.
“Get it on is a tease of everything to come from me. A vintage explosion of sound, this one has been a staple in my sets. It’s a collage of decades of sound brought into the 21st century. This one’s built for the road and meant to be played loud” — Effin
As Effin makes his way through this newfound career, he has already garnered respect from some of the biggest names in electronic music. Having support from artists such as NGHTMRE, Excision, and Apashe, Effin has only been encouraged to take his music to the next level and embark on his most creative endeavors yet.

Dubstep Mainstay Spag Heddy Says “Sorry” To His Fans With New Single
Dutch-born and Spain-based Dubstep mainstay Spag Heddy gives listeners a small taste of his forthcoming debut album with the release of its first single from the LP – “Sorry,” out now via Spag’s very own independent Tomato Bass imprint. The track sets the tone for “The Noodle Effect” (the album is set for its release on June 16 this year) while also serving as a heartfelt apology to his fans for releasing the album late (it was originally supposed to come out in 2022). We bet that Spag Heddy will be quickly forgiven, though, as “Sorry” is a nostalgic sonic journey that brings out the best of Spag’s “low key” style dubstep, with distorted melodies and vocals over a slow, driving bassline and stabbing mechanical synths and a small dose of cheekiness, “Sorry” is the first of 15 brand new tracks on “The Noodle Effect,” which tells us that Spag Heddy is going to make it one-hundred percent worth waiting for, so keep an eye out for more announcements on Spag’s new music coming soon.
But wait! There’s more. 15 brand-new tracks on “The Noodle Effect” is not Spag Heddy’s final word. We can confirm that a Deluxe Version of the album is also in production, on which you’ll find more fresh originals from Spag as well as remixes from other artists.
“I’m releasing ‘Sorry’ purposely as the first song of the album, expressing my apology to my fans for not releasing the album in 2022 as I had promised. ‘Sorry’ is one of my personal favorite songs. It throws back to the Spag roots, gypsy-style melodies, and distorted wobble basses in a drumstep format. To me, it evokes a nostalgic, yet at the same time melancholic feeling, hence its title – ‘Sorry.'” — Spag Heddy
The Netherlands-born and Spain-based Spag Heddy has been cooking up dubstep hits since 2011, when his club bangers quickly got the attention of fans and industry tastemakers alike. With Skrillex, Rusko, Excision and others counted among his inspirations, Spag has gained widespread acclaim for his hard-hitting and yet melodic style that always feels fresh and forward-thinking. He has multiple successful singles as well as remixes and collaborations for The Chainsmokers, Krewella, SLANDER, and originals that can be heard in sets of Skrillex, Excision, Subtronics, NGHTMRE and many other heavyweights. His high-energy, mesmerizing sets have earned him tours with Zomboy and Flux Pavilion as well as direct support for Excision and Zeds Dead, plus a number of his own headlining tours around the globe. Now on the eve of releasing his most exciting project to date, Spag Heddy is well on his way to the top.
