    I had the pleasure of checking out a Designer Drugs show last night at U Hall. I’ve been a fan of theirs for awhile, but haven’t really stayed up on their music recently, so much of what I was hearing was fresh to my ears. The tone was largely “grindhouse”. Much of Designer Drugs’ music is inspired by punk/hardcore and plays out so hard. It was awesome to be in an ‘edgier’ edm crowd that was completely willing to cut loose and thrash. Some girl next to me saw a dude standing still on his iPhone in the middle of the crowd, immediately accosted him for his flagrant faux pas, and forced him to perform some heinous raving before she disappeared into the throng. Anyways, Designer Drugs smashed the place apart (there was even a moombah-cameo by Alvin Risk) and I left in proper shambles. Today’s track is a remix by the duo of the Klaxons’ Echoes. It’s less ‘hardcore’ than other tracks by them such as Riot¬†or Drop Down, but it represents another side of their sound that I really like. Grab it and their other remixes below!
