Feb 23, 2011Yes, many of the chainsaw bass lines on this comp will be derided by some as knuckleheaded "brostep," but those bangers are balanced by enough forward-thinking productions that anyone new to the genre can get a fairly accurate snapshot of the style at this point in time.
Feb 23, 2011His jam with Lil Jon ("U Don't Like Me") is positively unhinged, while U.K. producers Benga and Zomby represent for the style's experimental side. Elsewhere, Stenchman's remix of "Burn" by Australian Idol diva Jessica Mauboy posits how dubstep could rescue modern R&B from groove tedium.
Feb 23, 2011Blow Your Head, then, is your basic pedestrian DJ mix of old and new tunes, though it is merely collected rather than mixed or interpreted by Diplo himself. As a result, there's really not much to get excited about here: some songs stink, some songs sound neat for a minute or two, and it all goes by without provoking much attention from the listener.
