Dubstep | AFK – Ripper [The Frim + AFK VIP]

Posted by on July 5, 2012

Rising artist The Frim has teamed up with the heavy hitting AFK to recreate a VIP to a fan favorite track from AFK, Ripper. If you have seen any of Datsik’s recent shows then you have heard some of The Frim’s latest tracks that should be releasing on Firepower Records soon. Although he is more of a low key artist, the tracks that he produces are monstrous. Of couse AFK needs no introduction, because he has been destroying stages for a few years now. It is crazy that Rusko still drop’s the original at his shows even though it has been out for almost a year now. This remix is more of a modernization of the original, because throughout the original we saw the “Yoi” synth that was such a hit a few months ago, but now the guys have revamped the synths and the arrangement to create this epic VIP.

Oh, happy day! When we first previewed the Datsik and Otto Knows remixes of “Kick Out The Epic Motherf**ker,” we didn’t have a set release date and I was concerned that we’d be kept on ice* for months. But it looks like the gods are smiling on us because the package officially dropped today. I’ve already discussed both of these remixes so I’ll keep it brief: two very different but independently excellent interpretations of Dada Life’s anthemic powerhouse. Both of these tracks are must DLs that will probably figure heavily in many an upcoming live set — so get them early…and listen often.

What happens when the dark, glitchy sounds of Datsik collide head-on with the unbridled energy of the Dada Life boys? Well, I just spent about ten minutes constructing a really elaborate narrative involving a robot army sword fighting with bananas and broken champagne bottles in an apocalyptic, post-nuclear hellscape (if this doesn’t make immediate sense to you…well, then you’re probably a totally normal person; congratulations), but this isn’t the time or the place. Anywho, this remix is going to be unequivocally awesome. Datsik opened with it at EDC LV, so if you were fortunate enough to be there you’ll already be familiar with how massive this is. The build that starts at about 0:32 is insane; so is the heavy, textbook Datsik drop into which it unceremoniously careens. No word on an official release date yet but we’ve got our eyes peeled.
