Continuing on with our theme of selecting our favourite producers from the past year to give us their interpretation of Duffstep's 'Getting to Sirius' we have arrived at the last of three remix EP's. This one lands firmly in the dub camp and features three producers responsible for some of the finest bass music to emerge from the continuing diversification of dubstep; or sub-low as it was more astutely coined back in the bad old days. First up and fresh off the back of releasing his third album on Planet Mu we asked FaltyDL to rework 'Tired'. Our only roll of the dice outside of the UK on this one, FaltyDL is a New Yorker who has become synonymous with intricate and rolling 2-step rhythms underpinned by a rattling sub bass fearsome enough to shake even the most 'sirius' of bootys. His mix delivers the sort of style we have come to expect; beautifully layered melodies, rolling bass and low swung 2-step rhythms. Eliphino delivers the second mix, a free-fall swelled up and dubbed out version of 'Free'. Eliphino is fast becoming one of the UK bass music scenes' finest assets, his recent track 'Let Me Love You Forever' was picked up by Giles Peterson for a release on his Brownswood imprint. Young Montana? is young but he is not from Montana, he does however continue to produce what can only be described as the clearest window into the mind of a young producer that has ever existed. Dropping the third remix for the package, Young Montana's music seems to defy any logical means of music creation and fast forwards straight to mind boggling notions of genius. 'Sacre Cool', an epic re-mash of Chemise 'She Can't Love You' is due out on his 'Limerence' debut LP on Alpha Pup in May. If you haven't checked it out on youtube, do it now. Seriously, right now. This is a boy that is going to do very well this year and we are very proud to be first in line to capture some of his beat wizardry on wax. An official survey has shown that there is higher percentage of people in the UK excited by the prospect of this EP than there is for the Olympics.
