Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records have steadfastly established themselves as one of the most prominent group of artists on the EDM scene today. The label’s French foursome Dirtyphonics dropped their newest dubstep single DIRTY about two weeks ago, and since its release, I haven’t been able to stop listening. The single is a monster, with an entrancing buildup taking you into a signature Dirtyphonics drop full of big bass and catchy melodies.
If the original isn’t quite your style, don’t worry. Along with the single came four different takes, with remixes from names like 12th Planet and Metrik. 12th Planet’s remix is an example of why following the trap genre’s evolution has become so fun. Watching big names put their spin on trap leaves me anxious to hear where else this genre can go. Nicolas Malinowsky also puts out a wonderful trap remix that might hit closer to home for all of you out there who enjoy the ‘classic’ style of trap that we’ve come to know.
Metrik creates a wonderful Drum n Bass remix with enough twists and turns to keep you interested and engaged throughout the full 4:13. Darth & Vader contribute a wonderful electro-house remix, kicking up the pace from the original, but keeping the hard bass, ultimately making the remix a great banger with superb synth-work.
Make sure to give this track and the remixes a listen-through. If you enjoy it, grab the whole set on Beatport!
