Not really feeling it tbh.

Sound like a mix of 'Smash TV' and 'Eastern Jam' with a few Prodigy samples over the top. I think they're doing the usual Jump-Up producer trick of Recycling all their samples! Not having a dig at C&S (hey I did vote them best D&B producers yesterday in the 09 awards) and I'm not having a dig @ jump-up as I love them both.

Audio on Hype's show from last night (10/12/08).

Im gonna quote this from another thread before the recycling argument starts.

It pretty much sums up why they use similar samples, and is put much better than i could have explained:

From what i hear, and this by no means relevant to Chase & Status or this remix necessarily, but with regards to remixing for a major you usually have a very short time limit in which to hand in your mix as it is usually to go hand in hand with the original single.

Not only that, when remixing for a major, it's pointless spending weeks trying to create a new and groundbreaking sound as you are drafted in usually because someone in the band will have heard some of your previous music and expressed a liking to it, so you will probably want to keep it in the mould - it's probably a case of 'damned if you do and damned if you don’t...' I would think…

Lastly, and probably most importantly, I think artists were getting pissed off with doing a remix for a major label, it selling 100,000 copies (or whatever) and then the producers only receiving a comparatively small one-off remix fee for their efforts.
The Pendulum remix of Voodoo People would probably be a good example of this.

It's simple, a major wants to promote it's new big single, so they get in some popular producers from a few other genres. The label get a competent remix that will get played in the right clubs and will act as a bit of promotion for the band and forthcoming album, the remixers get a bit of pocket money and everyone is happy.
