The Utah Saints are a hallmark of the UK’s early rave scene, with unforgettable hits like Something Good and What Can You Do For Me on their 1992 debut. Although their sound is noticeably dated compared to today’s dance music, through the magic of today’s musical technology, their classics have sprung back to life and onto the dancefloor!
Such an undertaking takes experience, and the three bass music heavyweights that run Technique Recordings, Andy Wright and Benjamin Wiggett of Drumsound & Bassline Smith, have that experience in spades. With their thorough knowledge of EDM, they knew just how to resurrect the spirit and sound of the Utah Saints. They saw the incredible potential for What Can You Do For Me and decided to transform it into a ruthless hybrid that fuses dirty dubstep wobbles with explosive drum’n’bass energy (official video below). The tempo changes that happen in the course of the track make the drops all the more irresistible. I must also recommend the brutal drumstep version by Tantrum Desire, who stands as one of the finest producers on Technique’s roster.
Drumsound & Bassline Smith are all about hard-hitting quality beats, so be sure show them some <3 on Facebook and check out more of their hits like their naughty luvstep tune Freak and last fall’s vocal sensation Close.
