Drum & Bass Meets Rap
When I first heard the original upbeat rap track Back In The Habit last year from Ethanol ADDiKtz on his “The Producer’s Habit” EP, it reminded me a little bit of the Red Mist VIP track from Danny Byrd, which combined a bit of hip hop with Drum & Bass. So I thought I’d ask Mr ADDiKtz if he’d be up for me trying my hand at a remix of it – here’s the original for reference
With my heart rate pumping at 174 BPM due to DnB-itis, a condition known to be very contagious in the right environment, I summoned my inner Danny Byrd once Mr ADDiKtz had come back to me with the stems and tucked in!
When I shared what I had done with him, he was over the moon and this made me over the moon too! Mr ADDiKtz told me that no-one had done a Drum & Bass remix of his tunes before and it’s an honour to be the first and when the original artist loves your remix, it makes it all worthwhile, spreading the positive vibes everywhere! So, without any further ado, here is my remix of Back In The Habit in full:
Back In The Habit (Nicky Havey remix) is out now, exclusively on the Electronic Alliance Records label as part of the Future Sounds Anthology Vol. 3. You can stream the whole compilation on Spotify here and the full run down of the tracks is in this blog.
We hope you enjoy this upbeat summery Drum & Bass track! Thanks for all your support and catch you on the next one!
