#musicmonday : Noisia – Machine Gun (16Bit remix)

My friend Jesse linked me to this, with the explanation that he wasn’t a fan of either Noisia or 16Bit, but somehow together the combination of both bands makes for dark, dramatic dubstep goodness. He’s right: those orchestral pad sounds are a little Rhys Fulber-ish, and it does sound a bit like how I’d imagine a dubstep Front Line Assembly to sound. 

Noisia took their name from reading “vision” upside down on a VHS tape, and hail from The Netherlands. They claim to have a diverse range of influences – from James Brown to Fatboy Slim – but are most associated with drum ‘n’ bass.

I don’t know anything about 16Bit, except that they’re from West London and describe themselves as being of the “UKBass” genre.
