    been listening to their albums all the time while studying for the last 3-4 days and they still amaze me after the must be like 10millionst listen. such clean production, perfectly executed, whether it be cheesy dancefloor, neuro induced stompers or just your standard rock crossover tune..

    pendulum for people with taste imo.


    perfect high/bones/stompbox/my money remix etc


    thought they deserve way more appreciation than they usually get. especially over here..



    too cheesy for you? underrated? overrated? opinions please :)

    this same stupid shit like new pendulum. i like only one of his tracks - "dem na like" - it was a good combination of reggae with nice drums.

    yeah. its like pendulum.

    but they dont have screechy synths which makes them approximately a million times better than pendulol.

    loved the qemists back in the day, the perfect high was my favourite tune for agessss. haven't taken much notice of their most recent stuff except for the reso remix of your revolution, wasnt a huge fan of spirit in the system. have they got any new stuff coming out or what?

    dont think so ^^^

    just been listening to spirit in the system and join the q and thought ill let you know of my appreciation :D

    and youre right, spirit in the system isnt as great as join the q, but i love it anyhow, could be my roots in the more metal/rock grounds and the lack of good albums over the last few years. good variation from your standard drum and bass imo at least!

    no

    i dont like pendulum as much as i used to but the qemists are nowhere near the level rob swire is as a producer, whether you like him or not

    i didnt said they were better producers technically. i just like their style of production way more.

    that rob swire is one of the most talented and technically able electronic music producers should be clear to anyone with a pair of ears.

    Heard a few of their tunes and thought they're complete shit. Nothing personal.

    edit: they have one good tune, though it's a remix.

    I like them. They made some really good tunes. At least it's one of the real "dnb" live acts.

    Old Quemists are better than the new ones. I don't know I didn't enjoyed the track this much as the old ones.....

    Newer stuff is pretty bad, honestly, but the original Stompbox and the Spor remix still remain two of my favorite tunes from their time period.

    And that Coldcut remix is just classic.

    I think the remix is overrated o_O
    Also then I search for Quemists the remix is on the top list, named "The best Drum and Bass song ever". I think this is too much.
    People are like thrilled or whatsoever
