    made a thread abot this like 8month ago.

    no i think hes actually deteriorating, he first few releases had me buzzing, but now im getting quite bored of his new releases. his v.i.p mixes are a piss-poor way of bringing in the moneyz, but same could be said for the 3rd degree burns v.i.p.

    hes okay live no better or worse than most and i got a fair few of his radio sets which are tasteful, but nah i dont think hes gonna go much further, same as taxman and original sin - UNLESS tehre is some real innovative stuff getting released

    just rinses the same sound over and over and over. getting slightly tedious how.
    but can bosh out a banger or two. haven't bought anything of his lately, got a fair few of his earlier stuff though.

    I think hopefully his production might start to pick up a bit now that hes kinda in with the D-Style camp, but can't fault the guy for ideas or picking a nice catchy melody

    Made some sick tunes, but also made some pretty poor tunes

    B-sides tend to be a bit of a let down

    This is what I'm sayin

    I don't think I've ever seen a Pleasure release where both sides are as good as eachother

    Its always A-Side = quite good.

    B-Side - NEVER going to play this.

    Maybe calls for some quality control from the man. Coz he does make alot of music so maybe its time for more quality less quantity.

    Completely fed up of pleasure at the moment..

    2008 was his year, he rinsed the same style throughout the whole year and it absolutely smashed it, was my favourite producer for most of the year..

    But now he is still just too samey, and its just become dreary.

    Sly is well on his way to this aswell!!

    Bullshit.

    Flute Tune/Splinter in your mind
    Venger/Five Points
    Technique/Wish Master
    The Wizard/Colt 45
    Bounty Hunter/Mustang Fastback
    Answer Me/Sonic Boom

    All bangers.

    I gota say the arrangement doesn't change much either mate lol

    Just a couple different drum breaks here and there but the sound stays the same

    But Flesh Eaters and Massacre are good tunes not because of the production but bcoz of the melody, vibe and originality
