LessThan3 favorite Fawks is looking to close out his banner year at top speed–like 174 beats per minute–as we premiere his drum & bass take on Mako’s Smoke Filled Room and yet another superb showing from the breakout talent.
The LA-based producer last graced us with a world premiere in his garage remix of Autograf’s Dream, which he then followed up with a bootleg of Skrillex and The Game’s El Chapo. Having built his following on the back of the springy garage-house sound found in the above, a Fawks Flip in the drum & bass realm was a pleasant surprise. “That girl I knew” that Mako references in the original parties a bit harder in Fawks’ version, which delivers punchy vocal D&B-pop goodness on par with such success stories like I See Monstas or Sigma.
Pick it up Nov. 13 from Ultra along with takes from Luca Schreiner and SCNDL.
