Modestep - Sunlight

This one starts out innocently enough with a pleasant and summery dance track.

But fourty seconds in the bass really kicks in, the dubstep beat hits and all hell breaks loose.  Before you become numb to it, it drops in and out and then gears towards an intense drum and bass finale.  The contrast is mirrored by the comedy video, mixing innocent elderly folk and class A drugs, though the idea has been done better before.

Then again, musically it's a contrast that's been done before too in Modestep's own track Feel GoodDubstep may not be everyone's cup of tea, but Modestep does provide more accessible tracks, especially with the sing-along vocal hooks.  Try listening and not bopping your head...
