    the beats are weak but for a pop&bass tracks it's rather nice

    I assume it's still the label that was associated to 3 Beat Records in Liverpool ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3_Beat_Records ).

    Remember visiting the shop in the mid 90's as a teenager.

    Yes, it doesn't sound very experimental, but I would be glad to hear more of stuff like that on the radio.

    I wouldn't want to hear this MORE on the radio then other pop music - it's pop music. I rather hear James Blake, Jack Garatt or Woodkid. Something with substance. This has none.
    Granted it's not as bad as some Netsky.

    I like the drums, the vocals are okay I guess but what the hell..the rest sounds a bit cheapish tbph.

    I hear Twin peaks too, wouldn´t buy. Free would be too much.

    the last two good songs he's done in a while IMO. Some Things Never Change is an awesome tune... but I guess Who's Loving You Is a bit of a stretch.

    When I heard that track I thought it was the old High Contrast back again. Hasn't put out much since so I still hold hope. :)

    Well, the man himself discribes his new song ("Remind Me") as return to his old sound, according to this UKF interview. Also he announces a whole album coming out on 3Beat this year.

    If the album is a return to his old sound, then I'm interested in hearing it.

    Track isnt that bad, reminds a little bit of old High Contrast sound.

    I do like the Jupiter 8 bass, gives it kind of a retro feel.

    I don't think he left it for good.
    Sampling may be one of the reasons, as he says:
