Longtime electronic influenced rapper Omar LinX has earned his reputation as one of electronica's favorite hip-hop artists, hopping on dubstep-influenced tracks since 2010. His early collab with Zeds Dead on "Out For Blood" had us immediately impressed, since then Omar has been a mainstay on the site, we even premiered his album M.O.R. (Music Or Revenge) in 2014. On the project were absolute bangers like the up-beat "Dosey Doe" and the chilled out "Red Light Green Light." Now today frequent collaborator Zeds Dead revamps the latter by giving it an impressive dubstep makeover.
The production duo keeps Omar's verses, but throws in a reworked beat and then turns the chorus into an all-out dubstep surprise. With heavy whomps and slow burning melodies, the fellow Candian producers masterfully alter the song, giving it a refreshing new twist without changing the integrity of the original. Enjoy!
