What happens when you combine the heavy dubstep force of Starkey with the artful creativity of Bassnectar? You get a great remix! Philadelphia native Starkey released his song “Street Rockers” back in 2011, via his EP Space Traitor, Vol. 2, and Bassnectar, or Lorin Ashton, has absolutely breathed new life into the track. But as one of the most popular artists in the EDM scene, with albums like Divergent Spectrum, Vava Voom, and more recently his Freestyle EP under his belt, Bassnectar is never one to disappoint.
Ashton starts off by revamping the beginning of the track, having it go immediately into hard-hitting dubstep, and continues changing things up towards the middle by switching the arrangement and adding in more distinct drops. Closer to the end, Ashton uses brief pauses in the song and injects tons of extra energy to distinguish his remix from the original, as well as eliminating the sticky liquid feel during the beginning and end.
