Los Angeles’ own dubstep killer 12th Planet is back up in the mix with a carefully curated remix EP featuring three of his heaviest studio collaborations re-envisioned by an equally heavyweight crew of remixers. From Ponicz twisting up 12th Planet and LUMBERJVCK’s “Stank Gum” to Bailo and Bite Me dropping in on “Hide It All” featuring Crichy Crich, the names alone should give you an idea of just how diverse and deadly this beast of an EP is shaping up to be.
To get a sense of the kind of flex on display on this essential SMOG release, head straight to 12th Planet and SPL’s classic “Lootin’ 92” getting candy-flipped by none other than Champagne Drip that we’re premiering below. Keeping the gansta swag of the original, the slow burn of the intro gives way to a futuristic soundscape dripping with that classic free form bass sound that Champagne Drip seems to knock out with ease. For those who know that Champagne Drip is, in fact, the alter ego of SPL, the refix serves as a testament to the continued evolution of the artist and the way he continues to forge his own path to the outer reaches of all that bass music has to offer.
The full EP drops today so dip into the head-twisting remix below and lock in your copy here. As if that wasn’t enough, be sure to cop your tix to Nocturnal Wonderland as Champagne Drip is set to bring on the celestial afterglow to the Bassrush masses over the weekend of September 15-16.
