Buygore kingpin Borgore and rapstar Juicy J first worked together this summer when Juicy J performed on the Buygore-curated stage at Electric Zoo Festival in New York. Now, the party-starting pair is back with their brand new collaboration titled “Magic Trick,” a fiery trap-meets-dubstep banger out this Friday in tandem with a multicolored, psychedelic music video.
The track is the perfect blend for the two artists’ signature styles and sounds. Juicy J provides the lyrical layer to the track by spitting heavy rap rhymes while Borgore mixes in slashing synths and distorted dubstep layers to create a hot and heavy dance floor igniter–a mixture resembling today’s modern music landscape.
Accompanying the track is a trippy abstract music video that strays away from the more conventional videos produced by Borgore and Juicy J. Mixed with fractaling doodles and spiraling images of Juicy J, Borgore and some of their other favorite things, the aesthetically pleasing and artistic video takes viewers on a magical trip.
A staple since its first edition in 2010, UKF’s yearly UKF Dubstep compilation is back for 2016, featuring some of this year’s most essential tracks from dubstep and beyond.
Representing the full spectrum of influences of the genre, this year’s album boasts hits from European bass music powerhouses Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Feed Me or Eptic as well as a string of some of the most prolific US artists like Datsik, Jauz & Snails – all having made dubstep history throughout the years. In addition to the heavier sounds, UKF Dubstep 2016 also showcases the influence of grime on current productions, with tracks from Sh?m and Foreign Beggars x Asa x Sorrow.
Melodic dubstep fans will be delighted to find Koven’s Telling Me on the album alongside Bare Noize’s huge come-back release: vocal single Elemental, a collaboration with producer friend AFK featuring vocalist Anna Yvette. Last but not least, the album features throwbacks to the sound that kicked off UKF and dubstep in 2010, with Myro’s Playa and Cookie Monsta’s Soundboy, both echoing the wobbly sound that grew dubstep into the worldwide phenomenon it still is today.
This year’s edition is the best UKF Dubstep album yet, confirming the strength and vitality of a genre that’s as relevant as ever, supported by its cult following.
