Up-and-coming fifteen year old Ray Volpe is back with a huge glitch hop remix of Skrillex’ “The Reason” off his recent Leaving EP. Fusing Skrillex’ amazing original melodies and euphoric lyric samples to explosions of smooth-flowing dubstep-infused, Ray Volpe has made this remix sound more like something Skrillex would have produced back when his popularity was first skyrocketing. This kid is definitely one to keep and eye on in 2013. Don’t sleep on Ray Volpe.

I’ve been waiting for over a month to drop this EP and I’m glad to finally be able to present this incredible, free EP from Static Groove. The first track, ‘Put Up Yo Hand’, is a msssive, grooving glitch hop banger, with massive, filthy warped bass in there, and the same is to be said for ‘Hot Steppa’. The third track has more of a Daft Punk, Tron feel in terms of a driving electronic line that carries the piece. The climax of the EP is the title track, which is more of the trap anthem you’d be expecting from these two. This is all around the perfect EP, with a good genre balance and massive tracks. Be sure to enjoy the exclusive download and make sure to share this one around!

So Alex, what prompted you to start producing?
When I started producing music as an amateur in 2006 , Psy-trance was

Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or one horse sized duck?
I guess we could make a good duck steak with 100 duck sized horses.
I first heard these guys at Camp Bisco over the summer, and was immediately a big fan. A live album they released previously became part of my morning routine on days when I had to wake up way earlier than I wanted to, and then not fall asleep on the train to my summer job. I just saw yesterday that they had released this eP, and I have to say it is even cooler than I was expecting. These guys have some serious chops, and its very cool to hear epic guitar solos over dubstep basslines and chopped vocals. Definitely check this out. They’re way ahead of the game as far as funky bass music with live instrumentation, and you can expect more music to start sounding like this in the very near future. Enjoy!

Earlier this evening I was browsing through our inbox of song submissions from the submissions page, and came across an email from Logan pushing me to check out his friend Ray’s track. WOW! I’m glad Logan pushed this track so hard because Ray Volpe’s incredible remix of Macklemore’s platinum-selling single ‘Thrift Shop’ is just completely and utterly disgusting. Dig Macklemore? And massive amounts of non-stop bass to your face? You’re going to dig this one for sure. Crank those speakers up, turn the bass knob to MAX, and head over to Ray Volpe’s FB page to hit that “like” button as a thank you curtesy for the free download.
