Welcome to Looking for Bumps; a new weekly series hosted by The Untz that will bring listeners more content, and do it consistently so you will always have a place to find fresh new tracks. The series will feature new songs and previews of forthcoming releases while encompassing genres all across bass culture, with the desire to provide something for everyone, all the time.

With Beatport hosting Zedd’s remix contest for “Spectrum” and revamps of the song floating all across the internet, it seems almost impossible to keep track of all the good ones. Well let us start by saying that KDrew’s version is well worth the listen, and contains impressive bass notes that perfectly compliment the tantalizing vocals of Matthew Koma.

A couple weeks ago we featured a dubbed out remix of this song by Big Gigantic, and now we have one by bass legend Laidback Luke. This version contains a thunderous big room approach, and touches down with fist pumping drum hits and synth work that will remind listeners of “Me & You” by Nero.

Posted on Michal Menert’s Facebook: “Paul Basic just found a CD with an unreleased track derek and I made. The first track we ever fully coproduced, from 2003, probably the earliest "pretty lights" track out there.” Take a listen, and experience the roots of Pretty Lights music.

This track is for all those dub heads out there that like three-ways: heavy, heavier, and heaviest. Oblivion does his thing on a haunting remix of Vaski that drops with incredible energy, while fluctuating perfectly between aggressive and genuinely melodic sections.

Adventure Club has rocketed to stardom in the last year and a half with an armada of undeniably catchy original tracks, remixes, and tasty collabs. In honor of the impressive trajectory, we have a remarkable revamp of one of their recent tracks by Kannamix, who turns the song into a synth driven cut that will have any listener copping its free download before the track even finishes.

Minnesota strikes again on a fatty VIP track that mashes up a classic Dr. Dre song with an original tune that he released in 2011. The result is a buttery, hip-hop driven jam that is perfect for bumpin’ while riding around town.

This one goes out to all the 90’s babies who have heard the original version of this song a million times, and still love to belt out the lyrics like it was the first time. Clinton Sparks does an incredible job on a nostalgic tune that will any listener dancing from start to finish, while adding to his collection of electro rock remixes that now includes switch ups of artists like U2, Lit, and Puddle of Mudd (Yea, he went there).

Protohype & Kezwik might just be the next Datsik and Excision. The two have been churning up rampant tunes together as of late, and these young guns show no signs of letting up. This is just a preview, but is a catchy anthem that will be featured on Static Revenger’s upcoming release of the track.

This remix kind of speaks for itself. The M Machine takes on a recent Passion Pit song, and turns it into a progressive house cut that gently contrasts entrancing vocal progressions and immersive synth lines to create an emotive tune that can’t be denied. This track is truly something special, and can be enjoyed by fans of both artists.

Dillion Francis recently unloaded a dance worthy remix that takes on a bouncy Steve Aoki track from his album Wonderland, as he continues to develop his energetic style of moombahton that stems from a fascination with cats, Lil B, One Direction, and taking his pants off during live shows. He is easily one of the biggest characters and up coming stars in all of EDM, and for that we love him.
