‘Babylon Falling’ featuring Taiwan MC was always full of summertime vibes and fresh for 2019, Ed Solo takes that feel good factor and ramps up the dial to 11. A perfect example of how to add trademark techniques without complicating the original direction. Kleu brings forth a re-edit of ‘Old Times’ featuring the vocal talents of Martin Carr and this time around, a slab of sinister bass notes that totally mix the feel of the original into something completely different. It works and it’s certainly going to take you by surprise. Original bad man Benny Page takes control of ‘Saturday’ in the only style and fashion you would expect from this veteran producer. Sticking with the theme of commercial but credible, this one is certainly aimed at both radio airplay and ram jammed underground dancefloors alike. Lighters at the ready.
Dope Ammo finishes off the first batch of the remixes with ‘Repent’. Whilst the original was stripped back to 120bpm, this one certainly takes it up a notch by going through the grand old time stretching box of tricks a few times. An impressive take on what was something a bit different from 2018 album. Infectious vocals and hard bassline lead. No worries inna dance here.
