Coming out hot from the beautiful bay area, Helicopter Showdown is a four person production unit who has been raging the scene with their unique fusion of heavy dubstep and electro house. Dubbed the “Wu-Tang” of dubstep, these guys have been killin it in the shores of San Fran and are now demanded all over the country! Quickly ascending in the beatport charts, they have teamed up with close friend and collaborator Sluggo, who owns the UltraGore label. Gotta give a shout out to ma boi mike in cali who once again has brought this group to my attention! He and Max rock a blog as well called Neighbors Hate Us. Now for the music: Helicopter Showdown‘s remix of Mt. Eden‘s “Bang” is straight nasty, comparable to the bum we saw pissing in a busy street right outside of my hotel in Chicago, mid day Friday, letting it all hang loose for everyone to see, that’s how nasty this song is! Now I apologize if you were trying to eat while reading that last sentence, it may have turned out a little like my early sunday morning. Some bastard bar tender made my kamikaze with everclear instead of vodka as i preceded to cough up the shot out of my nose in front of some ladies I was trying to impress, followed by some late night spins after a little post gaming at home, puked and knocked my 40″ TV onto myself slicing the shit outta my leg :(….pueblo slopper status. However, I still came out of the night with a number and great memory of the bad ass performance from Frederick Falke, who rocked out on the bass guitar while DJing, pretty fkn epic! Now that I have completely gone off topic, bringing it back with Helicopter Showdown‘s “Nobody Loves No One” a great song starting off very calm and slow this drops into some filth. This is a great example of the signature heavy dub / electro house concoction that these guys are so good at producing! Their song “No Return” a collaboration with Kezwik featuring LaMeduza has a ferocious heavy synthed out beat that I cannot get enough of! “Can You Feel Me” a production of their own, reminds me a little bit of skrilly with that quick and dirty dub sound, which then drops into some epicness at the end, making me wish I could get the full version of that song from the cloud. Lastly we have Helicopter Showdown featuring Messinian “Great Escape” my favorite song of them all, this has some awesome vocals, great dubstep, and that dirty electro all coming together in such a great way! Not only does Helicopter Showdown love riding into battle on their Nyan Unicorn, but they also love to make some kick ass music!
