Machines Don't Care "Beat Dun Drop (CSY & Stripes Remix)"
- Words: Patric Fallon
London duo CSY & Stripes (pictured above) has tried its hand at reworking over-the-top club banger "Beat Dun Drop," the latest single to arrive from UK "creative collective" Machines Don't Care. Thankfully, "Beat Dun Drop (CSY & Stripes Remix)" makes little use of the original vocal hooks (though its sporadic appearances throughout the tune are somehow more palatable) and does away with MDC's bombastic sound palette, focusing instead on swaying garage rhythms, rolling basslines, and crunchy synth melodies to work out its club-ready groove.
