The worst dubstep remixes ever

m.inthemix.com.au

5. Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling (Ben H Dubstep Remix)

Have you ever been on holidays and at a hotel and you open the cupboard where the TV is and inside there’s some mysterious video game console that you’ve never seen before and probably cost eight dollars to manufacture. It comes with a funky controller and has a selection of in built games like Tetrix and Muper Sario Sisters. This is what I imagine that system sounds like when it overheats and spazzes out after five minutes of use. Still, better than the original.

4. Oasis – Wonderwall (Bongo Junkies Dubstep Remix)

Oasis’ Gallagher brothers seem like genuine tossers not even they deserve such a drubbing with this interminable and tuneless dubstep makeover.

3. Limp Bizkit – Rollin’ (Mirrored Thoery Dubstep Remix) tied with Shaggy – It Wasn’t Me (JBeatz Dubstep Remix)

You know what? This mix is actually quite accomplished. It’s decently produced, the bass is pretty fierce and it’s actually in time! Praise the dubstep gods! But still, it’s just completely laughable that Mirrored Theory could spend so much time perfecting a Limp Bizkit bootleg. That has to be the definition of polishing a turd.

Is Shaggy better or worse than Limp Bizkit? Tough to say, but this remix of It Wasn’t Me was a startlingly bad idea that somehow survived the editing process to become an absolute embarrassment of amateur remixing. A legit abomination.

2. Bob Dylan – Ballad Of A Thin Man (Dubstep Remix By Kayo)

We think the YouTube commenter put it best when they described this as like “sharting into a microphone". Jesus.

1. James Blake – Limit To Your Love (Benny Benassi Dubstep Remix)

This was a no brainer. This is Benny Benassi, after all, the same guy who brought us boob-jiggling power tool video for Satisfaction. Not exactly the gold standard in sophistication and subtlety now is he? And so appropriately Benassi goes mental on a far-out brostep remix of Limit To Your Love, James Blake’s hushed and brittle single which has been so loved over the last 12 months. This is actually great to punk people with as it starts out semi-normal like the original before Benassi cuts in, loops Blake’s vocals and then backs up a Mac truck full of shirtless lads fist pumping in a pile and dumps them out onto the track, pummeling the original into weak, cowering submission. You can literally hear a chorus of palms slapping foreheads around you, it’s that obnoxious.

And yes, it’s even better/worse with the live footage of Benny playing it to a few thousand people in Miami. Bless him.


We can only survive so many half time bass breakdowns so there’s every chance we might’ve missed a stinker out there in the heap of horrible dubstep remixes. If you’ve got one you’ve got one you want to name and shame enter it below in our comments section.

  • DJ KnightSA on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    It's funny because somehow all the "insults" about how the bass sounds are actually considered compliments in some dubstep circles.

  • JeVs on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Silence - Delerium (ft. Sarah McLachlan) Mt Eden Remix. He uses the Tiesto remix, one of the greatest songs, puts a crappy off-beat over the top then adds, the random noises a five-year old could make by hitting a drum pad called, dubstep

  • webmonkey on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    "The Only" track sounds like it's sampling The Prodigy too.

  • frankyricoops on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Fuck me, can't believe the kids comments on the videos saying how epic the track is. It's fucking mindless shit. I could produce better sounds with my anal glands.

  • twistedbydesign on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    This stuff should come under the 'i found the LFO' genre...it's not dubstep.

  • GabrielBR on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    daverh, you're lame mate. whats that article really about? why dont you write about the best tracks of dub made so far? who really give a fuk for the worst tracks by the lamest producers? because u dont know SHIT about you're talking about. go fuk yourself bro. you sucks

  • Tim-BO on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    do you think your post count of 2 makes you qualified to make these comments? trollface.jpg have a read: http://www.inthemix.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=137817

  • thesuntoucher on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    I gotta agree with GabrielBR on this one. Not the go fuck yourself bit but why focus on the admittedly thousands upon thousands of poor dubstep remixes and showcase the best remixes around. There are plenty of them. And they aren't all gratuitous wobble and distortion. A different take would be much appreciated and I'm sure would get plenty of reads.

  • Derelict on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    You realise that 'best' is completely subjective, but 'worst' is something most people can agree on?

  • Slavo_Pendulum on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    seriously. im drunk and i dont even wanna listen to these. I can tell there so gross!!!!! Original dub and official mixes all the way!!!!

  • angy on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Yeahz, fukk youz Daverh such as @ssholez!!!11! X(

    What a way to ruin a great Massive Attack song...

  • aguilare on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    dubstep?? more like Dungstep... Thanks Benassi for ruining a fantastic song.

  • Mickstah on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Shit like this gives Dubstep a terrible name. If these tracks were my introduction to the genre then I'd probably never listen to it again.

  • GabrielBR on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    what pisses me off is that this is a music forum and u hardly will see a good review of ONE of hundreds of good EP's and LP's every month. and what we got here in ITM is one more cunthead attempting to damage the dub scene writing about useless stuff.

  • GabrielBR on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Tim-BO: so post count? hum.. really? so that makes me what? shut up bro. post count means WHAT?? haha

  • Funkedub on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Dear ITM, Please rename this article accordingly to "The Worst brostep remixes". Regards, Funkedub

  • daverh on the 22nd Jun, 2011

    Gabriel, I was expecting reactions like yours - completely natural. But please take this article in the tone that it was created; facetiously. I don't think there's really a lot of quality to these remixes so calling a spade a spade or a turd a turd in this case shouldn't be really world shattering. I get what you're saying about negativity and that's the last thing I want to pervade ITM as a whole community. We've already spoken about doing a follow up to this feature that looks at the good developments of the dubstep scene, say the 10 best upcoming producers or something. Still formulating that one.

  • Funkedub on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    We've already spoken about doing a follow up to this feature that looks at the good developments of the dubstep scene, say the 10 best upcoming producers or something. Still formulating that one. all the good dubstep producer's don't make dubstep anymore ... they make Futurebass ;)

  • Dero13 on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Don't blame dubstep , blame the the Electro house kids for jumpin on the wagon to popularise "brostep"

  • daverh on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Yeah, futurebass, post-dubstep, dadstep, nustep, all that good stuff.

  • thesuntoucher on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    @ Derelict: I agree, but we see best lists all the time on music websites all the time and they go down just fine. Even though they are subjective they promote a better kind of debate, rather than bashing a genre (which is already hated on enough) it gets people sharing their favourites, which can only be a good thing.

  • mjm_fm on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    That live Benny Benassi video gets me every time - he GENUINELY thinks his remix is sick. Bless his cotton socks.

  • bonza7 on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    clearly some shit remixes, but daverh is a little bitch.

  • Tim D on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Best ITM story ever.

  • Wowk on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    What worries me more about that Benny Benassi remix is that James Blake actually let it get released

  • ravelikespastic on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    "Beethoven would be slowly wobbling in his grave" :lol: I think ive developed an ear infection form listening to some of these tragic attempts at remixes.

  • daverh on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Wowk, nah, it's just a bootleg.

  • Will Styles on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    I list of the worst dubstep remixes without Mt Eden? Pfft.

    hahahaha i love this story :p

  • TheProphet on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Pity to see Benassi going to the dark side of dance music; dubstep is a sorry excuse for dance music, if it is even music at all. We need more early 2000's House.

    I would rather listen to two transformers having aggressive sex Aggressive butt sex with no lube > dubstep -_-

  • Makkaaa on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Now for an article that shows how good dubstep can be so all the people that have had to wash their ears out with gunpowder can stop and adore it.

  • lucky87 on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    That picture at the top looks like a blue light disco.. On crack...

    i fear to watch these if it ups the viewer tally

  • B_e_de on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    Fuck the haters (of this article, not the Drubstep), this article is entertaining as fuck and I'm glad daverh brought it to attention, gave it some spitshine and gave us all a reason to cringe in unison. I've loved the inception of terrible Dubstep remixes since Drater taught me that you can put any song into youtube with "Dubstep remix" and find a result for EVERYTHING. It falls into the "so fucking bad that it's good" category of entertainment. That Benny Benassi remix is a fucking crime though. Not even funny. It's just horrid.

  • slinky87 on the 23rd Jun, 2011

    As someone who has seen dubstep develop over the past 2 years into this trashy noise known as Bro-step (fuck you skrillex) i must say this article is spot on. I love dubstep but all of these remixes aren't what the genre is really about. Nearly every one of these songs that has been mentioned has an amazing dubstep remix out there, just like there are 1000 shitty electro remixes of wonderwall etc there is usually one good one, case in point Flight Facilities - Crave You (M.A.F. Remix) You're all welcome.

  • Weqster on the 24th Jun, 2011

    Shit i love that "i gotta feeling song". they ruined it!!

  • Slavo_Pendulum on the 24th Jun, 2011

    Gross! No other way to describe any of this rubbish. hahaha

  • Tron on the 25th Jun, 2011

    I actually agree. Although not in that tone. The article certainly attracts attention. We're all capable of using YouTube to find bad music of ALL genres.

  • Balls Deep on the 25th Jun, 2011

    Thanks to the digital age, no vinyl was harmed in the making of this muck

  • Suspekt on the 26th Jun, 2011

    You definitely missed the horrible glitch-hop/dubstep remix of Love Shack by the B52s... makes me vomit.

  • amphibian on the 28th Jun, 2011

    Jevs - I absolutely cannot STAND Mt. Eden's work. about 95% of his work is taking an old classic, and putting a dubstep beat and bassline on it, pretty much the original is otherwise in tact. That is NOT a god damn remix. That is thievery.
