In observance of Independence Day, American producer R.D. White has snatched something from the Brits, and made it his own. Much ado has certainly been made about the U.K.'s minimalist-production prodigy James Blake. With BBC1 and Pitchfork tracking Blake's every move, and his delicate take on early-wave dubstep pushing DJs across the pond to further boundaries of experimentation, it's time some of his genius was given the ol' Yankee dressdown.
With a free album out now, and a string of dates with The Glitch Mob on tap, R/D is gaining speed, and fans are becoming more and more familiar with his signature, melodic synth work. The second single from James Blake's eponymous debut is a haunting, ethereal exercise in subtlety. R/D takes "The Wilhelm Scream," aesthetic, patience and power, and turns up the bass. With deeply passionate builds and solid craftsmanship, White injects the remix with a potent cocktail of his own bass brand and American spirit.
