Sub Antix is back with a huge free download of his newest monster, 80 Weight.  80 Weight garnered a massive amount of attention after it was played by Brown and Gammon on BBC Radio 1 and for good reason, 80 Weight is a well-constructed dubstep tune that delivers a fresh hip-hop inspired beat that isn’t just focused on a massive drop.  With his newest track Sub Antix has demonstrated how his production has matured in both style and complexity; highlighting that as an artist, he isn’t going anywhere.
