This one goes out for all our US m8s and m9s celebrating Thanksgiving today….

Our most popular D&B upload in America (and our most popular D&B upload full stop) – Netsky’s killer drumstep remix of Rusko’s Everyday.

We’ve actually caught both artist’s stories about this track over the years…

Rusko told us…

“I remember getting this remix very clearly. I was in Sydney on one of those massive travelling tours. Australian internet was atrociously bad at the time. The hotel had THE worst internet I’ve ever used in modern times… You had to go down to the lobby to use it and it was dial-up. So downloading this was so frustrating. The MP3 took an hour and a half to download!

“But when I heard it I knew the wait was worth it. SUCH a good remix! It was cool because it was quite early on in Netsky’s career. He’s huge now but this was just before his first album. He’d only done a bunch of singles before then. I’d been a fan of his from the start and was really pleased when he agreed to remix me. He’s such a nice guy, too. We still stay in touch and, out of everyone who I’ve ever done remix projects with, he’s one person I’ve spoken to the most. I love how this all came about.”

Netsky told us…

“Rusko’s original was big so I wanted to do something completely different. I took the vocal and went to town on it. Remixes are a really cool opportunity to do something different and out of the norm or expectations. Back in those days I felt I could only include music on my albums that fans would expect of me so remixes like this enabled me to experiment and do something different.”

Here’s to experimenting…
