The original mix starts off quite techy with tight percussion and low stabbing and looping sounds while the mix slowerly climbs then drops into a breakdown with a devastating bassline. The bassline is now the main feature of the track as new elements are added into the mix including short stabbing synths which granulise over and over. Another breakdown comes in and this is wear the bassline exits and the mellow synths return for a solo run. As it progresses the bassline makes it way back in slowly alongside muffled hit hats as the mix rounds out with the short vocal expressing the title.
The Phil Kieran remix is a ‘hold onto your seats’ affair as it accelerates out of the gates with a slamming bass drum and tough percussion. The distorted bassline comes into play and then we are met with its full force as the mix takes a vicious turn into an almost techno arena. Sharp, scrapping samples flood the senses as the breakdown takes away all the elements, one by one, leaving the sharp loops to their own. Everything is turned on when the mix comes out of the breakdown, leaving a hell of a mess if that’s any indication.
If you were thinking that the Phil Kieran mix with tough, then the Adam Beyer & Lenk remix really hits home with mind numbing bass, booming at all levels with the rolling hit hats and layered percussive elements. This minimal techno-like mix is kept grinding along with sudden bursts of the melodic synths and even in the breakdown it feels the track is never slowing down. While feeling this was minimal, the mix takes a sudden turn as it introduced the earth shaking bassline that I don’t think I can ever get tired of. The short vocal comes and goes but the main attention is the moving force behind the bassline and percussion as it rounds out the mix.
A very solid, driving production from Phil, plus the remixes will keep you on your toes and out of bed.
