    Can't remember if already posted this but what do you reckon of this tune?

    I Love it to bits except the intro can't mix with it.

    Smashes the original all over the place so much energy you can't not dance to it.

    Fuckin tune mate, I love the original but this is better just cause it's dnb. High contrast has got a good record for remixin tracks like his papa nu guiny remix kicks the ass of the original.

    Yeah all the way... He has a knack for making remixes that kane the original. I remember i heard the axwell remix at hospitality and everyone thought he'd dropped a house tune and was like Wtf?? Then the drop came and everyone hit the roof. He played the we are your friends remix by justice which was also rude.

    i think its really weak, especially considering how banging the original one was, i think high contrast shoulda left it alone and maybe steppa or someone done a dnb remix that coulda done it justice, i just think that tune could be so much better if it had been brought in to a jump up domain, since its so tumpin i reckon it woulda been easy to convert, i wish i knew how to produce cos i know exactly what id do with it :<

    Steppa?????

    its got a proper liquid vibe going on with that vocal.. I reckon HC did ok he kept a lot of the original tune which i wouldnt see an jump up producer doing..they tend to use the tune only on the intro and then make some completetly different tune for the main body.

    I think High Contrast is one of the best remixers in drum & bass. If he had tried to change it to much he would have ruined it but by keeping it simple he captured the catchyness of the original. I reckon its a top notch remix personally.

    yeh, high contrast makes some sick remixes... I heard this on the radio1 essential mix a little while back, i thought it was the original till it dropped and then i was like 'ugh'. Love his remix of imogen heaps 'headlock' as well. Banging.

    actually let me try and explain my madness just a lil, as soon as that tune came out, i envisiged a sick dnb remix, all jumpy, maybe a lil housey like sub focus, but yeh, maybe chase n status could do what i had imagined more justice.
