No one wants summer to end, but let’s face it – its practically winter. When I heard heRobust’s “BUSTED” remix of “Only Fair” by Ill-esha, I was inexplicably overcome by the kind of twinkling energy that encompasses Christmas morning. Maybe it’s the songs’ melodic chimes, Ill-esha’s hauntingly angelic vocals, or the vitality that characterizes both trap music and the holiday season. This summer, the trap scene was defined by massive festival bangers erupting with the season’s energy. Bring on the mittens and hot chocolate: If winter sounds anything like heRobust’s alluring remix of “Only Fair”, I’m ready.

heRobust has been making waves in the trap scene since its inception, so its not surprising that Ill-esha requested him to remix “Only Fair”. The innovative Atlanta artist has caught the attention of musicians across multiple genres. Notably, he is set to begin an impressive string of tour dates with beloved electronic acts Pretty Lights and Gramatik. I’d advise checking out heRobust’s SoundCloud: this won’t be the last time you hear his name, and his versatile collection of high-energy tracks makes it obvious why. heRobust’s remix of “Only Fair” is available for free download, but if you have a dollar support the rising producer and pick it up on iTunes.
