It's my turn on the mixtape, and since I'm in the middle of unpacking a new apartment, I'm going to offer up a mix I threw together about a month ago. It's sort of a change of pace for me: dubstep. This mix spans different flavors of dubstep, from more reggae influenced tunes to bass heavy remixes of songs you'll recognize (the Bassnectar rerub of Groove Armada's "Superstylin" is ill, and I'm enjoying all the remixes of "Heads Will Roll"), to half speed rave anthems (the Ed Solo track). And since this IS a Mantisounds mix, you know I had to switch it up and drop a few breaks tracks at the end for good measure (the Collie Budz bootleg is fire, definitely listen through the end). I also broke out my miniKaoss pad and played with some filters throughout the mix. Dubstep is a genre that lends itself to effects and filters, and I think this mix came out pretty well with that layer of Kaoss effects.
