Here we are, yet another fine track from the Dubstep.net family (Facebook link). Although they flood my Soundcloud stream and email with tons of tracks, it has been fully worth it, no question. Not only have they been introducing new tunes, but also new DJs, like Austin, Texas' Psymbionic.
His new track, fresh off the comp and released under Made in Glitch, is sucha heavy hitter! The wobbles, the rhythms — it just all comes together soo well, aaand, it's a supreme remix, executed flawlessly!
That's right, the good ol' Beastie Boys like you've never heard em before. Ironically enough, while I was at SnowGlobe, I heard Bassnectar drop a remix of "Intergalactic" to open up his set, and it was nasty - he got the whole crowd up and goin' crazy in a matter of seconds. Heavy, heavy bass and alotta energy; a great way to kick off his 2hr set. I mean, Bassnectar is known for his quality and unique remixes - definitely my favorite element of his style - but, I must say, this remix clowns on it.
I've noticed that a lot of remixes tend to only sample the chorus or a snippet of the original, or, if they include most of the vocals, the music behind it is primarily simplified, but not this track! Of course, there are other artists out there that execute the same quality with success, but there seems to still be a struggle with adding a hefty wobble or driving beat with consistent vocals over it. Not here, Psymbionic mixes every element with great finesse, and after givin' a listen to his other tracks, it is apparent that this was no fluke.
Can't wait to drop this crafty remix in one of my sets...
Be sure to check out this Texan's SoundCloud, Facebook, and all that — show your love and support.
