Chopper Battles
Modestep - Sunlight 2011 (Calvertron & Helicopter Showdown Remix)
Calvertron & Helicopter Showdown - Drop it Again (Original Mix) [Play Me]
Helicopter Showdown - Great Escape (Will Bailey Remix) [Play Me]

Helicopter Showdown obviously knew how epic movies get when they climax with helicopter battles. In the spirit of over-the-top action movies, Blake Powers, Joshua Small, Devan Day and Ryan Wade formed their supergroup to make some epic bass music. Self-described as a “heavy and melodic dubstep from San Francisco,” they’ve received mad support from the likes of Rusko, Calvertron, and Reid Speed.

First up is their remix of Modestep’s iconic Sunlight, a vocal dubstep tune that took the world by storm a few months ago. As promised, the group delivers on their melodic dubstep slogan with style, substance, and no lack of bass. The other collaboration with Calvertron, Drop it Again, will rinse your soul clean with a next-level “brostep” assault, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. Finally, we’ve got one from their newest EP, The Great Escape, remixed by Birmingham electro producer Will Bailey. If this is up your alley, I’d check out that Excision guy as well.
