More free music. Can you handle it?!
This time it's a remix of American R&B/hip-hop rising star Drake, by Manchester's own Mark One of Virus Syndicate. Drake is new to us, but according to his Wikipedia entry, he came to fame as part of the cast of Degrassi: The Next Generation. We weren't lucky enough to catch that show either, but are very pleased to know the Degrassi St flame is still being kept alive by people as talented as Mr. Drake. MRK 1 turns it from (we imagine) slick R&B into heavy dubstep with big stretchy synths and lots of blaring reggae foghorns. Oh, and the tune also features some other MCs you might have heard of.

Cheers to Joe Muggs for the tip off!
