UK group Modestep aka Nick Tsang, Matt Curtis and brothers Tony & Josh Friend, originally hail from London and these boys have taken the Dubstep scene by storm. Their irresistible mixture of live electronic rock performances and Dubstep and Drum and Bass have won them many admirers and acclaim from all corners of the scene. With singles like ‘Sunlight’ and ‘Feel Good’, the latter reaching #16 on the UK Singles Chart and achieving one million views on Youtube within four days, Modestep are primed and ready to take the world by the scruff of the neck and show everyone what they’ve got in their locker. Fans should look with excitement at their upcoming performance in the UKFBassCulture concert at Alexandria Palace coming up on the 25th November 2011, alongside such heavyweights as Nero, Chase and Status, Gemini, Knife Party and the world-renowned Skrillex.
Their new track “To The Stars” (Break The Noize & The Autobots Remix) starts off with a bouncy drum beat and trance-like synths, allowing Josh’s vocals to take centre stage before being insanely manipulated for the opening drop which launches the track into some seriously monstrous sounds and filthy basslines. The vocals return accompanied by a dancefloor build-up for a lull in the madness half-way through the track, before an even filthier drum machine-backed drop launches you into an incredible ending. Overall? Break The Noize & The Autobots, remixing Modestep? It’s a combination that’s worked with spectacular success.

Modestep has been one of my favorites since I found out about dubstep. What people don’t understand .. is the fact that their music sounds a bit different than a lot of the other artists.. which I REALLY like and enjoy. How you feel about Zeds Dead?
