Limewax – Jij/Fünf – Position Chrome Recordings – PC082

For fans of Limewax and the ever-growing scene of drum n bass that surrounds him and the label that put out this record (The Panacea’s ‘Position Chrome’) , Jij/Fünf is one of the most anticipated releases in a long time. Some 12 months ago Limewax uploaded a teaser of the A side to his Soundcloud page – a 3 minute clip taken from a low quality recording of him playing in a club (crowd noise included), occasionally cutting in tiny samples of the full quality version.

Then that was it, nothing more was heard of this tune until much closer to its release, leaving many fans of the hard DnB subgenre(s) gagging to hear what the full track actually sounded like. It worked. I bought this record the day it was released and I can’t stop playing it. It’s incredibly fun to mix and just so so powerful, especially once you reach the drop just after 3 minutes in. There is some beautiful synth work throughout this track, like something from a sci-fi film. A sci-fi film about a warehouse in Rotterdam where they play industrial hardcore all night.

This is not to suggest that the flipside is any less mind-blowing. Once again, some very impressive synth work proves Limewax is at the top of his game at the moment. And just wait for the distorted kick-laden drop that completely transforms this tune towards the end, a real crowd rocker. He hasn’t released much in the last couple of years but if this record is anything to go by, it’s always worth the wait.

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
