Secret Diaries, the producer we featured a little while back for his Stock-71 double-mix has just let loose this remix of Stubborn Heart’s recent song ‘Knuckledown’.

Gang Colours is Will Ozanne, a “post-dubstep” (that genre name has nothing to do with us!) artist from Southampton who is signed to Brownswood.

And it has plenty of warm sub bass.
