Remember that zany M.I.A. video I posted a little bit ago where a bunch of gingers get offed, well, LA’s baddest dubstep man 12th Planet has just released a brutal summer anthem for the angst ridden rebel inside of you. Coming in a just over the 3 minute mark, Mr. 12th P gets down and dirty, relying on the grimy low-end frequencies that have made us fiends for his bass. 2010 is turning into 12th Planet’s year as he can do no wrong.
