History repeats itself, or so they say. Popular band and Feed Me-associated act Hadouken!’s latest release Bad Signal pushes that idea, sampling Kim Wilde’s cover of The Supremes’ 1966 track Keep Me Hangin’ On (you’ll recognize it). The radio edit complements the sampled vocals with some original hip-hop lyrics that compliment the Nero-esque dubstep instrumental, pumping out an overall energetic track.
With that being said, where this release really shines is in the remix package that came along with it. Bass music prodigy Xilent steps up with a straight aggressive dubstep remix, one with more bass and definitely more glitch focused than the original. The composition keeps it interesting for a dubstep track, once again proving Xilent to be a master of unorthodox beat structures. Also killing it on remix duty is The Prototypes. This duo out of Brighton brings the artillery out for this D&B remix, offering something that’s beyond intense for all bass music lovers out there.
