Seemingly out of nowhere, Sub Focus has dropped his new EP Out The Blue, a remix release focused around the title track. The EP is very true to the Sub Focus that old fans will love, and has a well-rounded sound that new fans will need to know. It’s drum’n’bass the Sub Focus way–fast, exciting, and uplifting.
Out The Blue itself is old school Sub Focus with some very remixable vocals. The artists who took the remix charge include Xilent, Laidback Luke, and xxxy. The Laidback Luke mix is especially heavy; it’s a classic Laidback beat with some grimier bass than we’re used to from Luke, but I love it–the synth breakdown is pure win! What really caught me by surprise, though, was the Out the Blue remix by Xilent. Holy dubstep god, this was a level of filth I was not prepared for based on the original, but it is very welcomed. I hope to see it dropped often this summer.
