Make an Example

Posted in Dubstep, Electronic, Hip Hop by jurbanik on August 29, 2010

One track that has been getting a lot of play from me recently is Bar9’s remix of Example’s Kickstarts. The original track is one of the singles on Example’s new album, ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ – an album that goes in a much different direction than the London rapper’s previous material. It is a lot more electro and poppy than the older, more garage style hip-hop.

To be honest, I’m not sure if I like the song more for the video or the actual song itself. While Example’s original version has its own merits, it is Bar9’s remix that really shines. The heavy dubstep lends a more serious air to the song and just makes me want to move (I just wish I knew how to pop properly). At the same time, the video is really impressive. It is somehow cute and romantic despite being almost entirely fight scenes. It is bad ass, despite the fact that it is completely unrealistic. Basically, I wish I was as kickass as the dude in the video, but that I never had to deal with what he has to deal with in the video. Whatever, just watch it (after the jump). (more…)
