New York producer Dank is on a roll. At the start of August, his track “Blow Me” rocketed into Beatport’s Top 10 dubstep tracks, ricocheted around for quite some time, and even now it still sits in the Top 50. Recent follow-ups have all fared well, too, as his latest remix of Sean Hayz’s “Last Forever” sits mighty comfortable at #7. Sitting at #1, however, is today’s Track of the Day, Dank’s own trap-style remix of his electro-house original from March, “New York Fuckin City.”

The Trap Edit of “New York Fuckin City” applies the latest 808-fueled, hip-hop-style construction to dubstep’s format and then flips everything around with a heavy dose of crunchy guitar. There are so many elements in this track, we asked Dank himself to give us the story behind it.

“I made the ‘New York Fuckin City’ tracks because I wanted to make something that represents the core of the city—hard, rugged, and tough as nails,” he told us. “NYC is my hometown and is a city made up of survivors. With that being said, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, I thought it was only appropriate to release this edit and tell the world, we will not stop, we will continue to move forward and will continue to thrive even more so one day at a time. In terms of the Trap Edit specifically, I wanted to expose people to an exciting new sound, something they might not be as familiar with, however if listened to would make the listener bop their head and shake dat ass. This track is special to me ’cause it represents my love for one of the greatest places on earth—New York Fuckin City.”
