With his new track “Save the World”, LA-based artist Sullivan King puts a Rock and Dubstep-influenced spin on some of dance music’s most iconic lyrics. Although hard rock instrumentals and growling, dubby basslines aren’t necessarily what comes to mind upon hearing the title, Sullivan pulls it off flawlessly; the result feels entirely original with the only the very slightest sense of deja vu, guaranteed to send listeners into a frenzy when the track reaches its hedonistic apex. Sullivan King – who plays the guitar instrumentals in the track, sings, writes, and produces all of his own tracks – reflects on his inspiration for “Save the World” below.

“One of the first electro house tracks I heard was Knife Party’s remix of SHM’s ‘Save The World’ which was definitely a massive part of my intro into early 2010’s dance music. For years I wanted to find a way to make that song my own for live shows. I don’t play a lot of super well known Top 40 dance songs so when I end up throwing something like this in a set, I love giving it my own take. I toyed with ideas for this for over a year and wasn’t ever really jazzed on any of it. The day before the first show on this year’s Apex Tour with Excision, I wanted to bring something different into my sets. I finished this in about 3-4 hours and drove to Las Vegas for a show the next morning to test it out.”
Sullivan King is not about playing by the rules. The 24-year-old artist has made it his artistic work to found the “metalstep” sound, a fusion of the influential bands of his youth and the avant-garde, ever-evolving world of electronic music. King grew up listening to rock bands like From First to Last, Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for My Valentine, and Metallica, finding a sweet spot in crossing those elements with sophisticated sound design and heavy-hitting basslines. His unique music production style has helped him stand out from his peers and gain support from prolific tastemakers like The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Excision, Zeds Dead and more. “Save the World” follows Sullivan King’s “The Demented” (Kannibalen Rec.) and 2018’s “I’ll Fight Back” (Monstercat), “Shake The Ground” w/ Snails, Kill The Noise (Slugz Music); “Dropkick” (Kannibalen) and “Wake Up” w/ Excision. Stay tuned for more new music coming soon from this exciting and multi-talented young artist!

This heavy Dubstep single called “AVOIDABLE CAUSE” is literally a dancefloor bomb. When you hear MARAUDA‘s music for the first time, you get a sense of adrenaline rushing through your veins.

Best New Dubstep Song Of 2020, “Find My Way” By JAD3D
For sure, this is the best new Dubstep song of 2020. I’m referring to JAD3D‘s hottest release on Careless Records, called “Find My Way”. You will be very stoked once you hear energetic drops and the melodic voice of Alley Parton. Get lost in with such singable verse lines straight away. What’s more, if you’re feeling the melancholic sensation on this track, then that’s a good sign as the artist has served its purpose.
The super chill piano intro + the splashing of raindrops give a clue this is not the typical track with generic Dubstep beat drum or wobbles on repeat. Actually, “Find My Way” is quite the opposite as the Chicago-based producer showcases a solid sound design and lyrical base that exudes so many emotions. The production quality is insane, so I think it deserves to top the electronic music charts anytime soon. Without further ado, expect JAD3D to continue to gain momentum in the Bass scene. It would be a crime if you forget to hit the play button down here. Enjoy it.

“WAKE UP”, The New Effort From JAD3D & Demitri Medina Via Careless Records
Who doesn’t like dark and melodic beats? JAD3D‘s properly titled single “WAKE UP”, released via Careless Records, really gave me a buzz. Trust me, it feels like a new strain of Dubstep that’s accompanied by passionate vocals from Demitri Medina, which brim with emotive impact. With this in mind, this piece is not based solely on wobble bass and electrifying synths. Conversely, the hard-hitting lyrics also carry a deep message.
Inspired by a life story of how recovery can take you down a certain path, this tune provides a moment of reflection. In terms of sound and approach, it dabbles in uplifting dynamics. It becomes crystal clear, that the softness and loudness of the music are the fuel behind this banger. In some way, “WAKE UP” bears a certain resemblance to those classic Pop-Punk/Emo hits that all 2000s kids used to love. However, instead of guitars, here you have heavy bass-driven tones and big drops. Do us a favor and take a listen below. You’ll thank us after.
