C. Drugula and I have been in R.E.S.T. mode lately, and in the meantime we've been bumping lots of high-profile remixes that have been dropping this year.
Ricardo Villalobos - "Minimoonstar (Shackleton Remix)"
Sun Electric - "Toninas (Ricardo Villalobos Remix)"
It's been four years since dubstep originators Horsepower Productions last released a record, but they've returned with their remix of Kuma's "Dawn Stepped Out" on the Immerse label. Having pioneered dubstep's brooding bass sound back in the early 2000's, Horsepower are back to rescue us all from the seemingly endless proliferation of wobbly half-step monstrosities which followed in their wake. Without sacrificing bass weight, the "Dawn Stepped Out" remix features Horsepower's richly layered production.
Kuma - "Dawn Stepped Outside (Horsepower Remix)"
