Make the last preparation for the New Year’s Eve Party? Get blasted with the long-awaited Annihilating Rhythm 4 mix by DJ 2rip! The mix featured an onslaught of bass with influence from hard & nasty drumstep and electro provided by artists like Figure, Calvertron, Will Bailey, Receptor, Skream, Lazy Rich, and Bloody Beetroots.
DJ 2rip say: “My last mix in this series came out in January of 2011 so this is a very big day to finally be releasing the new Annihilating Rhythm. It didn’t come so late because I was lazy… I had actually made about 9 versions of the mix but ultimately didn’t feel satisfied or complete. Each Annihilating Rhythm tells several stories and are glimpses into not only my feelings at the time, but also what is going on in the greater dance music & DJ culture.
I also pay attention to a lot of elements when it comes to this series. I like to incorporate new material that intrigues people and expands their listening horizons while telling a story. Sometimes new materials that fit the storyline are not readily available so I might throw in some older tracks to both meet that story as well as diversify the mix.” Pump up the volume and bang on this, got yourself one incendiary hour!!

The history of DJ 2rip’s career in the dance music industry is hard to sum up in just a few words. For nearly two decades his music has reached coast to coast, while his performances continue to deliver a unique sentiment. His latest shows have been billed amongst some of the largest names in the industry as he has blossomed from and underground rave DJ in nineties to playing festivals boasting an attendance of over 13,000 people.
After fall of 2009 his popularity in the rave, dubstep & electro scenes skyrockets and fans have been following with loyalty ever since. During this time span he completed over 100 shows and was offered to perform several large festivals including Starscape and Big Dub Festival.
With over 50,000 YouTube views, 12,000 followers on Facebook, over 8000 plays on Soundcloud he remains poised for stardom as he embarks on a mission to promote his production work. Some of his remixes have included renditions of “Sweet Dreams” by Marilyn Manson and “Spiders” by System of a Down. The year 2012 has been a year of promise so far for 2rip and 2013 looks even brighter.
Each of the Annihilating Rhythm series mixes has stood alone as unbeaten testaments to new breakthroughs in dance music for their time, staying ahead of the popular curve and embellishing musical elements that defy the mainstream. ANNIHILATING RHYTHM 4 is a powerhouse mix that crosses all genres and brings back a strong emphasis on drum & bass while being amplified by relentless, aggressive drumstep patterns. “Drum & bass is a genre that I’ve noticed people enjoying more of lately but it seems rare that people understand what drum & bass is really about. I think I would like to explore it more with future mixes, primarily because I feel like it’s time to shift focus away from styles that are flooding our current music industry… drum & bass generally maintains that underground feel. What I brought forth in the middle of this mix is a lot of aggressive stuff that really touches a nerve in most people and gets them to relate to something that’s often lost in dance music.”
