† FROM DJ PAUL V.
Here in America, we have our beloved, perennial holiday TV specials like A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer etc., but in Britain, little did I know about a classic that UK lads and lassies have adored for almost two decades: A 1982 film called The Snowman, based on the Raymond Brigg book. And the centerpiece music featured in the movie is a wonderful song called Walking In The Air. Thus, it makes perfect sense that London’s Hereldeduke (aka DJ Linton Brown) would want to update a special childhood memory. And while a lot of dubstep remixes can border on sounding like a dentist drill, this one is just the opposite – adding a languid and not overpowering beat-heavy vibe. The beautiful original version from the classic can be found here.
