The Adventure Club is a DJ duo consisting of Christian Srigley & Leighton James from Montréal, Canada. We’ve had fun covering their Dubstep remixes and today, they have led us to Foxes’ Youth. The voice behind Foxes is actually Louisa Rose Allen, who has the soft and sultry voice that has fit so well with this remix. The Adventure Club knew exactly what they were doing when they decided to put the Dubstep spin on the original piece of work. The Dubstep that they did add doesn’t overpower Foxes vocals at all, it’s a great balance.
Here is a great concept taken on by Jonathan Gering; the idea to take one of favorite genres, Dubstep, and put it with (of all things) Country! With the remix of The Band Perry’s If I Die Young, it works out so well to play off of Kimberly Perry’s vocals on this song. Jonathan Gering starts the remix off with some light bass to give you a hint as to what’s to come. But unless you see “CountryStep” your guess of Dubstep would not have even been in the top 5 genres guessed. The song ramps up to its first drop at just under a minute and the Dubstep takes over; without overpowering the vocals of course. There’s plenty of twists and turns within the body of the mix before it ramps up one more time to drop with about a minute thirty left. This was a well thought out remix by Gering, check out his SoundCloud for more, we will definitely keep an eye out for more of his work!
