Datsik & Bar9 – Droid (Original Mix)
In a collision of dub meets dubstep, UK legends Bar9 have signed on as the latest collaborator with Canada’s Datsik. Released on the duo’s latest EP, Brand New World, the collab blends both verbal and aural storytelling with progressive-like leads before unleashing the tiger, so to speak. With stabbing distortion, screeching synths and a deadly drop or two, the sound doesn’t fit nicely into either Bar9’s classic box or Datsik’s alienesque vibe but instead blends the two into a new whole. A welcome return for the original bass baddies and an applause-worthy extension for the man formally known as Troy Beetles, “Droid” proves that dub can never truly die.
