Fresh: Calvin Harris Feat. Kelis - 'bounce' (Darq E Freaker Ultramix)
Darq E Freaker is a name that has been popping up all over the place this year. He's a producer from south London who, along with the likes of Spooky, Preditah, Faze Miyake and a select few others, has injected an exciting new energy into the 10-year-old genre of grime.
Over the years, and let's not beat around the bush here, grime has slowly lost its dance factor. It got to a point where it was just about standing up and watching MCs spit bars about themselves all night. However, these new beat-makers aren't bothered if your favourite MC decides to lace their productions or not, as they're creating instrumentals with enough skankability to keep any grime fan on their toes.
Darq E Freaker's latest offering comes in the form of a remix. Calvin Harris and Kelis' infectious chart-topping single, 'Bounce', gets the grime/dubstep treatment with some impressive results and you can have a listen to it below.
