When I first started getting into drum & bass, I was digging deep. Around 2010-2012, Hospital and RAM Records were my go-tos, with artists like Camo & Krooked, Chase & Status, Delta Heavy, and Netsky populating most of my listening time. But, of course, I had to appreciate Pendulum, and with them, came knowledge of one of the subgenres of drum & bass: tear out. And with tear out, I found The Qemists.
Now, around a decade later, I’m heavily reminded of the in-your-face instrumentation and relentless bass with Boxplot’s new remix of “INTERCEPT” by REAPER, from his recent debut album, DISRUPTOR.
I was first made aware of Boxplot earlier this year when a friend sent me his debut album, Here & Now. The whole album blew me away.
So when I caught wind that the producer of one of my favorite albums of the year was remixing one of the biggest proponents of DnB in the states, to say my interest was piqued would be an understatement. And sure enough, when I finally heard the remix, my expectations were well met.
The full remix album for REAPER’s DISRUPTOR is out tomorrow, but you can listen to the Boxplot remix of “INTERCEPT” below now.
