Hmmmm seems a bit too mainstream to feature in one of sets
considering the names involved, I am serious underwhelmed with these remixes from the first listen. Hoping some of them will grow on me though
Blocks & Escher remix is very meaty
Agree, not feeling this release at all.
Both Prayer remixes are superb, on par with the original yet at the same time completely different takes, especially Om Unit's remix.
The Blocks and Escher one is a real belter and that clip does not do it any justice at all, seriously meaty weighty banger of the kind that you rarely hear on Metalheadz these days.
I would have much rather seen a Razor's Edge 12" with both of the Prayer remixes on it than this four tunes on a 12" fuckry though.
Not really feeling it first listen either. I reckon these will be growers though. Skepticals first liquid outing in a while. Simple and clean. I think it will sound weighty on a system layered in the mix. Om Unit remix reminds me of SYNKRO and Indigos first releases on Exit. Ulterior motives output i have been underwhelmed with for a while now so didnt expect much. Haven't really been feeling their output since the subtitles days and the Blocks & Escher remix i think is moving away of the reason i liked their output in the begining; moody, simple, rolling. I think there is too much going on on their remix.
Will probably pick up for the Skeptical and Om Unit bits
It's pretty much underwhelming because everybody has just done what they always do. While that's fair enough it just doesn't grab my attention.
Everytime i hear Blocks & Escher for Metalheadz, they sound like they are trying to be the 2016 version of Source Direct.
That remix reminds me of the Source Direct Rmx of Dark Metal.
Not feeling any of the tunes, and i love love love everything OM Unit did for Headz so far.
We all had a bad couple of days?......
Don't think the ep's that bad.
skeptical and om unit bits sound big, am sure the blocks and escher will need a full listen and will also be banging
Don't get me wrong bro - I wouldn't call it bad...I just rate all of those guys pretty high, so they didn't reach that bar for me (at this stage).
Might change my mind when I hear them on a big rig though (its amazing how that can change your perception of tunes haha)
Much like them old days when you get home from record shopping and wonder what you've bought
haha yeah you're not wrong!! (still happens sometimes to me lol)
Really liking this release. Buy from me
This is sick. That is all.
This. I only really like the Om Unit rmx so not going to pick this up. Really expected more from UM off the back of Radian. And have heard the Skeptical rmx before which it a nice bouncy Skepi beat but sounds very similar to another of his or one by Alix
I didn't really like any of the originals either. Would love to hear a Skeptical remix of Congo though.
