Now firmly cemented as one of the staple tracks in the Dirtyphonics discography, “Hanging On Me” made headlines earlier in 2013 for its huge dubstep sound. Now a number of versatile artists have lent their hands to remix this dancefloor devastator into wholly different creations.

Borgore and Ookay teamed up for their remix of “Hanging On Me”, bringing together two different genres into one tight package. The first drop in this track leans on devastating hardstyle sounds with its snapping kicks. The second drop however will surely leave crowds surprised, as it breaks into a full trap workout. The Kastle remix goes into a polar opposite direction. Pulling off the fresh new remixed sound seamlessly, the Kastle remix is proper 2-step garage. This track fits perfectly into club sets, with its warm lead sounds and triplet sections, all whilst keeping Liela Moss’s vocals intact. Finally, the Slogun & iOh remix turns “Hanging On Me” into the drum & bass we know and love. A sizable reworking of the original track’s synths turns this remix into a break-beaten killer track for the D&B massive.

It seems like producing a super legit remix of a DIRTYPHONICS track is like a right of passage only bestowed upon the most gifted of music makers, as witnessed by Kastle’s remix Dirtyphonics“Hanging On Me”; laid back and fresh, “Hanging on Me (Kastle Remix)” is like a breath of clean air on this #dirty track. Kastle, who is known for infusing the sounds of R&B with edgier dubstep influences, sheds a whole new light with his chilled out rendition.

[SPIN Premiere] KASTLE Wrings a Bubbly 2-Step Remix out of Dirtyphonics’ Brutal ‘Hanging on Me’

Is there any sound so tough that a U.K. garage refix can’t turn into something pliable and seductive? Apparently, not, at least judging from the Los Angeles producer Kastle’s remix of “Hanging on Me,” a new song from the French quartet Dirtyphonics. Their recent singles have typically trod the line between headbanging and Ed Banging: “No Stopping Us,” featuring Foreign Beggars, was hip-house via Alice in Chains, while “Walk in the Fire” was forged of blast beats and chugging metal guitars. “Hanging on Me” is similar, marrying Master of Puppets-inspired twinned leads to a shuddering, dubsteppy cadence and topping it off with vocals from the Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, who here sounds, improbably but intriguingly, a little like Cat Power imitating Ozzy Osbourne. In Kastle’s hands, though, the tune flashes back to 2-step’s glory days, complete with bouncy organ bass line and synths as bubbly as a freshly uncorked bottle of Dom. In contrast to 2-step’s habit of making chipmunks out of its singers, he plays Moss’ vocals relatively straight, save for a judicious bit of glottal chopping, but he strays from convention by briefly flipping the groove into a brittle triplet rhythm that’s halfway between trap and Schaffel. If you’ve ever dreamed of a Lex Luger/Superpitcher collaboration, here’s the next best thing. (via SPIN)
