We've come to expect a certain level of quality from Rusko, and I'm glad to say that this single does not disappoint. Everyday is a well crafted, of-the-moment sounding track which I'm sure will be played in clubs across the country (either the original or one of the many remixes which will undoubtedly be made).
Everyday isn't a departure from Rusko's previous work. It's what we expect from him - 'epic' sounding, easily accessible dubstep. It's actually one of those songs which makes me feel like summer's not too far off.
The remixes are also very good. Where the original is easily accessible dubstep for the masses, the remixes cut deeper and allow for more experimentation. Netsky's remix is basically the original sped up with some heavier bass involved, which surprisingly changes the song more than you expect.
The DJ Q remix and the Original Sin remix are significantly different. They both obviously share the same vocals and riff, but there the similarities end. They sound so different that you could probably release them both as standalone tracks. The DJ Q mix is more minimalist dubstep, sparse beats with a fast underlying bass. The Original Sin mix is a lot faster than either the original or the other remixes, and it's a lot heavier - a nice take on an otherwise accessible 'populist' dubstep record.
Lick the Lizard is an interesting one. Weird lyrics (as expected from a dubstep track), hypnotic repeating bass and some nice synth solos.
All in all, a great single.
