  1. Are horrible....I like some of his tunes but the mixes sounds distorted and sound noisy in the mix.

    He needs to tidy them up a bit.

    I'm loving his remix of 'Don't Understand' the mix doesn't sound right...especially when you mix it with other tunes.

    Dont know whether anyone else has noticed it?

    on the contrary, i love mixing in don't understand. can get a wicked double drop with swamp thing. sounds dutty.

    i could probably understand what you're saying about some of his mixdowns, they seems a bit cluttered sometimes. but generally i think they're pretty good.

    That Don't Understant Remix is far too high pitched. Love the tune but agree with Subsonic does sound dodgy when mixing it sometimes.

    i kinda like taxmans mixdowns, they're very individual. you can tell one of his tunes from a mile away.

    Flame suit on,

    But digging through some old stuff the other day

    I thought Vault - by penduhate sounds really nice through decent speakers

    Anyone want to recommend me a good sounding ep/lp ?

    :beers:


    Also, what does "dutty" mean ?

    I have never heard anyone in australia say it,

    also "safe" ?

    I must have mud in my ears. Every mix down on Playerz /Ganja etc are amazing if you ask me. The only prob i had was that it seemed that the tune Machete (promo) seems to be pressed of centre. Looks like me needle is having a brock out once on vinyl. Hope the full release wasn't like this :(

    REALLY? Thats suprising the copy i got is a well produced and great press other then Machete. It sounds great but it is off centre which is looooong. I got the Double for Trouble maker which is worth £10 alone tho :)
