Free Tune - Parker Vs Muse

Rounding out your work week we have a fantastic piece of Dub just in time for your weekend sets. If Knighthoods were given out for contributions to crowd rocking, Parker would be curtseying in front of the Queen come New Year. As it is, plaudits range from Massive Attack to DJ Yoda. Royalty indeed! First starting his rise smashing chumps via DJ battles, Bristol's Parker soon turned his hand to production gaining "lofty comparisons to the marvelous RJD2". The luscious beats and driving funk of his "To Eternity" LP garnered rave reviews and wide critical acclaim. Proving he was no flash in the pan, Parker followed the album with a series of club-rocking bangers, finding homes at such heavy hitting labels as Bombstrikes, Goodgroove, and Jalapeno. Not one to rest on his laurels Parker began to dabble in bass-heavy frequencies with "deliciously pleasing results". His Dubstep refix of James Brown's "It's a Man's World" reached #1 on the Hype Machine Chart, while "Where's My Monkey?" made him a household name. Parker's Crack House remix of Max Sedgley and Glitch Hop collaboration with Finley Quay further showed his versatility and confirmed him as a hit with national taste-makers BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, 6Music and XFM. A hectic DJ schedule has seen Parker's incredible deck talents already rock such festivals as Glastonbury, Shambhala (Canada), Big Chill and Bestival, as well as various club hot spots across the globe including FabricLive.

2011 will see a multitude of releases served up, indisputably proving Parker as one of the most eclectic producers around. His guise as one half of The Beekeepers along with Boca 45, results in the May album "Apiculture" on Jalapeno Records; a feast of chilled out breaks and dubby bass featuring a myriad of delicious vocal sounds from various talented and diverse artists. In-between a run of festival and worldwide gig dates Parker will also be giving away plenty more treats including his frankly astounding remix of Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia” which we have available today. Always one for "combining a cheeky sense of humor with a keen ear for a record-defining sample" (I-DJ Magazine) who knows what styles he'll be running, or inventing next. Parker is, and always will be, your friendly neighborhood beat smith. After the successes of his dub refix's of James Brown, Black Sabbath and of course the Jungle Book, Parker now sets his sights on Muse. Inspired by the recent revolutionary atmosphere and an unhealthy obsession with V for Vendetta, Parker has reworked the 'people power' classic Knights of Cydonia into a wicked Dubstep stormer. Massive kicks and powerful snares coincide with the filtered vox working you into the first short yet massive break dipping out on the classic Cydonia vocals. Shortly thereafter the oscillating and heavy bassline exposes itself ensuring this tuna is a summertime anthem in the making. Grab it for free and check out more from Parker on the links below.
