The injection of soulful R&B diva vocals into a track is rarely, if ever, a bad idea, and this re-fix of Oakland’s Keyshia Cole (pictured above) is no exception. In fact, it lends some humanity to the often cold dubstep-bass hybrid that Rustie has mastered. The prolific Glaswegian dropped this song as a free download on his Myspace page, and with a catchy four-note descending melodic bassline forming the track’s instrumental backbone and Cole’s gorgeous harmonies swelling above it, one can definitely understand why this re-fix has been so highly anticipated: it is a sickly good slice of dancefloor gold.
