Following his remix for Particle’s seminal ‘Fall2Fast,’ we have listed some reworks from Skeptical that make him one of the best producers in drum & bass.
Whether it’s deep and dark textures of drum & bass or the low ends of dubstep, or funk-driven halftime, Skeptical is one of the most tireless innovators that bass music has been graced with. Featuring a style that combines powerful drums and syncopated basslines, Skeptical’s music has the ability to rejuvenate your emotions and put an exit wound to your skull at the same time.
While his ability to produce his original material can seem untouchable at times, his remixing prowess matches and exceeds this. For many years, Skeptical has been flipping some of the finest drum & bass tunes to perfection, sometimes making the rework reign supreme over the original. Continuing his knack for delivering flawless remixes, Skeptical took over Particle’s seminal ‘Fall2Fast’ and turned it into a low-end banger.
