We’ve been flogging the absolute crap outta Shockone’s remix of Thelma Plum’s Young In Love lately, and the other day, after listening to it for the 20th time in a row we decided we needed some new tunes to listen to before we ruin it for ourselves… And who better to hook us up than the man behind the remix himself!
We caught up with the local Drum & Bass lord aka Karl Thomas and asked him to put together a list of his 10 current faves and then turned it into a handy Soundcloud powered playlist which you can find below followed by a breakdown of why each track made the cut.
Mefjus - Saturate
To put it simply, this guy is writing the raddest drum and bass in the world right now. Every song is more twisted and epicly produced than the last. If this doesn’t get your Friday off to a banging start then you should probably check you’re not dead.
Brookes Brothers - Anthem
It’s summer (in Australia anyway) and this tune is pretty fucking summer. I get all tingly and fuzzy inside when I hear this song and it makes me want to sing along like a 17 year old girl when I play it in my car.
Tiga - Bugatti
You either love it or you hate it. I for one love it. My girlfriend on the other hand is pretty sick of me walking up behind her and singing the chorus line into her ear about 20 times a day. This song and Tiga in general also gets extra radical points for looking this amazing in the film clip -
Sophie - Hard
Pretty obsessed with this guys music at the moment. Quite simply there is nothing else out there like it. I’m a huge fan of J-pop and K-pop and the strong vibes of that style of music mixed with the heavy electronic edge makes me bop around like a dick head every time its on.
Baby Metal - Give me Chocolate!!
I discovered this band in Tokyo and they are my favourite thing ever. Check out the film clip. How did nobody think to make a death metal group featuring 12 year old Japanese girls as the front women before now? IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE.
Must Die! - Hellcat (Habstrakt remix)
Must Die! is so on point right now. Super heavy music produced amazingly. This remix takes a wonky left hand turn on the original. Serious head nods and screw face on this one.
Thelma Plum - Young In Love (Shockone remix)
I’ve put this one in here because I am interested in blatant self promotion. It’s pretty different for me style wise, but when I heard the original, the chorus vocals jumped out at me so much and were so awesome that I felt I had to do a remix that really highlighted them. This is what came out.
QT - Hey QT
I can not stop singing this song. It disturbs me how catchy it is. Help.. Inside
Info & Prolix - Transposed
Probably my favourite drum and bass tune this week. Such simple. So Groove. Wow. This is how Drum and bass is supposed to sound.
Neosignal - Space Gsus
Imagine if the T-1000 dude from Terminator was a DJ and he collaborated with Justice in the future and they came back from the future to show Jon Connor how to make a hell filthy bass drop and then they all just got hell turnt up and did the best set at Stereosonic on the main stage. And that’s what this song is.
Stay tuned to Cool Accidents for more Shockone news as word on the street is he has been in the lab making bangers #frothinggg
