Billie Eilish has taken the world by storm this past year with her own streetwise take on pop, folk and soul. Able to flex with a vocal range that belies her 17 years, the old soul vibes that Billie Eilish is kicking are capable of bringing on the goosebumps just as much as they are the existential heartbreak. Drop in a little drum and bass into the mix and the emotional overload elevates to an entirely new level.
Delivered courtesy of Los Angeles’ own Dr. Apollo and Dip Vertigo, the resulting re-visioning of “Bad Guy” builds upon Eilish’s vocals but never in a way that overpowers the resulting sizzling drum and bass burn at the core. As both Dr. Apollo and Dip Vertigo continue to make big moves in the scene, the tune becomes a showcase for their own ability to not only work the dancefloor into a frenzy but to even dip into a little dark half-time interlude to keep things grounded for those unconvinced of the ability for this one to hold its own.
It’s the perfect way to kick-start the summer so check the cut that we’re not only proud to premiere but stoked to offer up as a free download. Big!
