Howie B Vs. Casino Royale "Royale Sound (Ramadanman Refix)"
The release plans for this super-exclusive track from U.K.-based electronic powerhouse, Fabric, are still in the works, but you can hear it here first. As a long-standing figure of the U.K. electronic music world, Howie B has worked with Bjork, Tricky, U2, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, and Goldie, among others. On Not in the Face, he’s re-imagined the 2006 release, Reale, by five-piece Italian favorite, Casino Royale. Now, British dubstep up-and-comer Ramadanman has taken the danceable rock “Royale Sound” out of Howie B’s hands and cut it up into tightly intricate rhythms peppered with subtle accents and tinny distorted vocals.
