    Don't really see it as a deadline rip off, but its not very catchy that's for sure.

    the drums are almost equal to deadline no? the rest is of course different. anyway, its a good thing they dont only use pendulu-beats and i'm sure the lp will be diverse. but that second skin tune was pure rubbish...

    Never really been into Loadstar

    Wish Lomax would come back and make some bass-heavy bangers, for the heads

    Tune is shit imo, this Loadstar project doesn´t do it for me neither.

    but..a deadline ripoff?? really?? The drums sound a bit like deadline, yeah..woah..big deal. Almost equal..no. Also..ripping tunes off or whatever you may call it has been an essence since the days of hardcore, so who cares really if a tune sounds a bit like another tune thats 5678 years old..shussh..I´m mad bro. :D

    Slagging off a dnb song for sounding like another dnb song is a bit hypicritical! Jungle was built on sampling other people music

    It is the norm for multiple Producers/DJs, who collectively work under one alias, to split up and make the most out of bookings. Brookes Bros, Sigma, Loadstar...they all do it...I'd probably do it as well, if I was in their shoes. Makes sense, business-wise

    It's only annoying when you know one of them is a better DJ than the other, and the guy who isn't as good turns up

    I like Loadstar a lot, but it worries me that their tunes get worse and worse. They should have released the album a year ago, as I fear that they will have replaced a sick tune like Flight with something cheesy and uninspired.

    This one is aight, nothing special really.

    lets not forget the mighty bomber, terror drone was good aswell (hit the ground & L2tp were already named)
    also really liked their remixes of blind faith and fighting fire

    lomax could also do some single stuff though

    So much hate! I think we're spoilt with the amount of good tunes people are producing nowadays, perhaps it's because of people like Culture Shock that we just expect every tune a particular artist makes to be to our taste. I'm not a massive fan of this one particularly but when they're making tunes like Bomber, Link To The Past and Hit The Ground then I don't really care. I'm really feeling that Therapy bit by them that Hype played on Kiss a little while back.

    Once in a while loadstar put out something that destroys the dancefloor. Some of their recent output isn't to my taste but they still kill it.
