Ok, so I thought I would highlight a new (for me) artist I found, well technically two. I was browsing through tumblr and found a link to this remix, which blew my mind. I’m not always a fan of dubstep, it can become very repetitive after awhile, but this remix of Amy Kuney’s “Sway” by Butch Clancy is just unbelievable. The original song (link below) is equally amazing but with a completely different feel. And that’s what makes me so happy- that these two very different styles somehow managed to merge into this really enthralling song (imo).
I know it’s not for everyone, but I thought I’d share anyway. Do yourself a favor and at least try out both versions, you never know what you might end up liking. ;)
So here’s the original song by Amy Kuney:
Also here is her website: http://www.amykuney.com/
I highly recommend listening to her other stuff, it’s honest and playful and dark and wonderful.

I’ve really enjoyed his stuff. He has the wonderful ability to take work from wildly different genres and make them his own. Very talented guy (imo). Check him out too. And if you enjoyed the remix above, you should know that he’s done several remixes of Amy Kuney’s songs and they can be easily found on youtube.
