Back in 2011, longtime d’n’b/dubstep producer Bulletproof (pictured, left) released his Dub Me Crazy LP to a limited audience in his New Zealand homeland. Thanks to the Internet, many dubstep fans were still able to get their hands on the full album from all over the world. Before re-releasing his LP worldwide through Cyanide Recordings, Bulletproof decided to give dubsteppers another reason to take a look at this re-release. Bulletproof called out fellow Kiwis State of Mind and Truth to remix the album’s eponymous track, delivering a trifecta of New Zealand’s top production talent on the second release. The rest of the Dub Me Crazy LP stayed the same, but that’s not a bad thing as there some well-crafted gems on the album for fans that missed it the first time around.
The original mix of Dub Me Crazy (official video below) is definitely a standout production for Bulletproof. Benga/Magnetic Man fans will be particularly fond of this tune because of its staggered, syncopated rhythm. Jessie G (pictured, right) throws down a sultry vocal that could easily stand alone as an a cappella. State of Mind’s remix keeps the soothing voice of Jessie G, but combines it with a 2-step drum pattern and some creative vocal effects. Truth’s take on Dub Me Crazy is quite a bit darker than the previous two mixes. In typical Truth fashion, the duo has imbued the song with a suffocating coat of darkness and an additional layer of grinding wobbles.
