Meet Charlie Darker, a 19 year-old with an electro and dubstep edge that puts him far above the competition. Personally chosen by Mord Fustang to remix The Electric Dream, this young Canadian brings something to the table that so many aspiring breakthrough producers struggle with: polish and pop. Fortunately, Charlie’s got staggering amounts of both.
Charlie’s remix of Electric Dream broke into Beatport’s top monthly charts last month and for very good reason. Dubstep has never sounded so massive as imagined by Mr. Darker, who foresaw the perfect combination of melody and grime and just delivered on it. The next track, Astromarx, is another example of his big room tendencies, with a huge electro sound that reminds me of some of Porter’s new tracks. Finally, his latest work Vader is a solid piece of rap/dubstep fusion.
