    Oh shit, has anyone else heard this? HUUUUGEE, in my opinion better than the original, and I liked the original a lot

    Don't have any audio though.. I heard it's forthcoming on Viper Recordings, so Tim, could you please supply us with some info :clown:

    Mmm, almost feel it's a bit of shame though, because it was to an extent a Bounce Recs tune, and one which would have brought them quite a bit of recognition

    But then again Andy supported, and probably was after that tune from day one.

    I love Polar Bear, so would like to give you my opinion, but i haven't heard any audio for the the taken VIP yet. The original sounds nothing like Polar bear so I really wanna hear it now. Where can I get a mix with it on? is it on his D&B arena podcast mix?

    the drums and the drop on Polar Bear are exactly the same as tey are on the original version of Taken. Listen to taken on Nightlife 4 or something and then listen to Polar Bear. Just seems a bit lazy to me...

    I see where you're coming from now. Yeah they do sound similar, it sort of reminds me of Danny Byrd's early stuff I can't ever remember the difference between dog hill and fresh 89, maybe he's trying to find his formula. You can listen to most producers and tell it's them though, coz they have that particular sound

    imo they sound exactly the same,
    its annoying really,
    not alot of point in buying polar bear,
    (although i do rate the a-side by Camo & Krooked)
    might as well just keep playing taken ):

    Audio for the VIP is in the DC Breaks DNBA podcast mix at around the 30.40 mark.

    Not as good as the original imo.
