EARMILK has been covering the spectacular reworks from Vancouver's own DiRTY RADiO, one of which was "Illegal", a remix of Darius back in September. The group has messed around with vocals over artists like POMO, Kaytranada, and even a recent one that showed a new side of Esta. I don't know where their name comes from, but I'm guessing radio sprouts from their incredible knack for choosing tracks.
D.R. just released a brand new track vocalizing over a beat by Flight Facilities, and I think this one's my favorite to date. It's a mellow experience, and I think the DiRTY RADiO remix vocal series needed this kind of variety to express the focus on the vocals. This one's dubbed "My Religion" but is in reality a rework of FF's "Waking Bliss". Hit that link and try to deny the cats have serious style, and authenticity to match.
Take a listen to "My Religion" now, and make sure you track back to the rest of the remix vocal series here. I'm not sure how long this will continue, but I can tell you it's more than fun to watch a new idea unfold in the hands of some more than capable musicians.
