Empty Hearted by Designer Drugs and Alvin Risk may not be all things to all people, but it’s still a lot of things.  From the epic four on the floor dance groove with great vocals, (some with the guest chipmunks!) to the build up and drop in full-on Dubstep mode.  It takes you through a musical journey that is very satisfying.  A great synth countermelody outlines the pulsing chord progression and leads into a solid dubstep adaptation of the original lyrical statement. Chords and synth lines keep the huge epic feel going.

This is a well crafted piece with just enough hooks, both vocal and instrumental, to make it accessible to a wide audience.  While not dripping in dirty basses and leads, there’s enough edge in the production and variation in textures to satisfy most EDM fans.
