Sub Focus takes home “Best Track” at the 2011 UK Drum & Bass Awards

5 Mar

I think everyone knew what a bomb Sub Focus produced with his remix of Rusko & Amber Coffman’s Hold On as soon as it was first released. It’s no surprise then that it was awarded such an honor at the official 2011 UK DnB Awards in Birmingham.

This is one of the more important songs of the year since it helped get the ball rolling with Drumstep as a stand-alone genre. Even on a simpler level, it was a blast to hear live when I saw Rusko bring in the new year at Insomniac & Go’s “Together As One” event. If a song is fun to hear and dance to live, then it’s a winner in my book.

Here are the links to both the Sub Focus remix and Rusko’s original mix:

Glover has been making a huge impact on today’s hip hop scene (see my post about his new “Freaks & Geeks” music video). It only makes sense that this television, internet, and music personality would be hosting mtvU’s 2011 Woodie Awards.

Follow this link to see what the man himself has on the subject:
