Rustie – Lost (VIP remix)
Saying the VIP remix of Rustie‘s “Lost” is better or worse than the original would be like comparing apples to oranges (pardon the cliche). Fans of the more deliberate, down-tempo original might find the heavy bass drops and choppy editing of the remix a bit too jarring and forced for easy listening. Newsflash: it isn’t meant for easy listening. Those whom the the original left itching for a bit more energy will be pleased to hear an edit with the potential to set off a big room club. Each offers a unique sound and experience, and we advise listeners not to make comparisons that wouldn’t be fair in the first place. We applaud the young Scottish producer’s attempt at showcasing a versatile skill set – we think he nailed it.
