These babies are just too good. In the span of one week, we were treated to an Extended Play (EP) from two insanely good electronic artists, U.S.’s Minnesota and Canada’s finest, OVERWERK. Both Minnesota and Overwerk continue to experiment with their craft — part electronic, part dubstep, part drum ‘n’ bass, mostly indescribable — taking slow-tempo rhythms and building masterpieces out of carefully articulated bells and whistles (not literally). Minnesota’s Altered States has a more otherworldly feeling to it (I swear some of the sound effects sound like spaceships flying overhead), while Overwerk’s aptly-titled After Hours adds a spooky side to his unmercifully grinding beats. Take a listen, send some love, then get Minnesota and Overwerk’s entire albums FREE from the source to hear the rest!

Two brand new tracks just dropped from two of my favorite dubstep monsters, djs Minnesota and MartyParty. Minnesota launched this sleek, almost-trance beauty a little over an hour ago…
♬ Minnesota – Jetstream (Original Mix) ↓
…and South African fave MartyParty let loose this suave, early-morn-style dubstepper yesterday to celebrate the upcoming release of his new album, “Six Shots Of Jameson”. Be sure to click the poster at right for his recently announced North American tour dates…! Feb 17th in New York!

Dubstep’s fillin’ the airwaves…
While I’ve come to understand that Minnesota, aka Christian Bauhofer, will just always make sick originals and hoppin’ remixes, it takes something extra to make a mashup that flows smoothly and doesn’t get annoying after a while. Needless to say, he did it rather flawlessly; let it play a few seconds, then let this gorgeous Radiohead/Dorrough mashup sweep you off your feet.

I don’t even care for rap all that much. How do you do it, sir? Here, get some more Minnesota in you: an oldie but a goodie, a remastering of Sander van Doorn’s remix of The xx’s “Intro”:
