Canadian bass music juggernaut Excision made Halloween the best day of the year for his fans last night, releasing his long-awaited yearly Shambhala mix as well as making a HUGE surprise announcement. Excision has teamed up with fellow Rottun Recordings giant Downlink and KJ Sawka (previously of Pendulum) to form Destroid, a “full on live dubstep band.” There’s no telling what a Destroid performance will be like, but we’re luck enough to get a taste of the trio’s new music in this year’s Shambhala mix.
The tracklist of Shambhala 2012 is way too long to name, but it’s full of Excision bangers, different genres, and even a short appearance by Rage Against the Machine. This year’s Shambhala starts off with the booming robotic voice that first shattered our ears back in 2010, but this time, not as part of an Excision track, as one of a few Destroid previews in the mix. Judging by Destroid’s first impression, this could be one of the most unique things to happen in electronic music.
The Shambhala 2012 mix, along with more info about Destroid, including the first issue of the comic book, can be found at the band’s website.

The trio’s Safe in Sound tour made a stop at Orlando’s Firestone Festival Grounds, which drew a crowd of 6,000 — and 911 calls for noise complaints from as far as a mile away. Neighbors near […]
Despite having only two weeks under its belt, Safe In Sound has been seeing major success with its staggering lineup and awesome sound. The tour so far has been a wild ride for sure, and there have been plenty of situations to grab some awesome video footage. Featuring all of the artists over the past week, the […]
Undoubtedly, one of this fall’s most anticipated tours is Safe In Sound, featuring massive headliners Flux Pavilion, Destroid, and Adventure Club, among many other top-tier supporting acts. The festival is nationwide and will likely sell out every date, a basshead’s wet dream. As the tour is about to start off, I managed to catch up with Josh Steele, […]
Imagine Festival is a mere 15 days away, coming to Atlanta, Georgia this Labor Day weekend (August 30th-31st), and we couldn’t be more excited. In fact, I’m so excited that I have assembled my top three acts that I am most looking forward to seeing (with accompanying tunes to check out) and are giving away […]
