Rising UK funky star Donaeo has had a lot to celebrate over the last year. In addition to a number of killer tracks, most notably “Devil In a Blue Dress,” “African Warrior,” “Party Hard” and “Watching Her Move”, the singer, songwriter and producer also released a critically acclaimed debut album, Party Hard. It grabbed much attention for its maker, and rightly so.
Next came the release of one of the standout tracks off that album, “Riot Music,” again well received by critics and dancefloors alike. Now, Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy imprint are unleashing a Skream remix on 12″. Moving instantly into his jungle stance, Skream brings bass in its abundance, keeping it hard hitting until a timely breakdown provides some respite (although this in truth only serves to make the next drop all the more earth shattering). A true dancefloor smasher. Much credit goes to Skream for coming up with a rework that rivals the original cut.
