Always one to embrace the open road, Eptic continues to score frequent flyer miles with nonstop touring coupled with plenty of silly Snapchat antics this year. Release-wise we’ve witnessed the greatness of “Underworld”, “Flesh Eaters” and his latest banger, the “Say Less” remix for Dillon Francis.
Who better to tap for an in-depth look back at the past year than the Never Say Die stalwart? As we head into the holiday season and count down the day until the new year, join us in reflecting on a jam-packed year as Eptic dishes out the tunes that were essential to his neck-breaking sets in 2017.
Trampa “Rocket Fuel”
Heaviest tune of the year, absolute crowd destroyer. Do I need to say more? Can’t play a set without this and neither can you.
Skrillex & MUST DIE! “VIP’s” (MUST DIE! Remix)
This is one of those songs I wish I came up with. The bassline has a jump up dnb feel, and in my opinion that’s the dopest kind of dubstep. I’m actually sad it’s finally out, I wanted it all for myself.
The first time I heard this as a dubplate during Laxx’s set I just screamed in MUST DIE!’s face.
Zomboy Ft. OV “Get With The Program” (Eptic & Trampa Remix)
Not to blow my own horn, but yet here we are. It was so much fun collaborating on this project with Trampa and trying to make our styles work together. Super proud of how it turned out, making it one of my favorite songs I’ve ever worked on with one of my favorite people.
Skrillex & Habstrakt “Chicken Soup”
It’s not easy to make a whole crowd sing with just 3 notes–mad props to Habstrakt and Skrillex.
BadKlaat “Rompa Stompa”
This is one of those rare tunes that still gives me a screw face when I play it out. The badass vibes are real.
Noisia “Get Deaded” (Moody Good Remix)
Moody Good is on a whole different level. He’s one of the only dubstep producers at the moment that focuses that much on groove and original sound design.
Point Point “Hands”
I love Point Point because they’re so good at capturing emotion. I still listen to this song every time I drive my car.
Joyryde Ft. Darnell Williams “New Breed”
Joyryde is the most exciting producer in the scene right now period. I always reference his songs when I’m trying to improve my mixdowns. I love this tune because it has a totally different vibe than all the bass-house out there. The bassline is pure originality.
ASAP Twelvyy Ft. A$AP Ferg “Hop Out”
Anyone who follows me on Snapchat knows this is my favorite jam. It’s genius how A$AP Ferg is able to write such catchy top lines time after time again.
