N*E*R*D – “Rockstar (Des McMahon Remix)”

Philly’s own Des McMahon is a producer we’ve rocked with over the last year. It makes sense; we like our beats big and our bass dirty, and Des more than obliges on his latest, a gnarly remix of N*E*R*D‘s “Rockstar.” What hooks me is the drum & bass tendencies that run throughout this rework; it never delves heavy into the typical dnb flavor, but it does walk that drumstep tightrope, where the gritty vibe and thick bass roams at a halftime pace. Maybe Des can knock out a special DAD VIP that goes full dnb? Whatever happens, this is free from DAD, so enjoy the big boy beats.
