Bringing a classic into another era when your sound has gone thru so many evolutions isn't so easy but with familiar samples and some of the wobbly funk Andy and Ant apply the Molten template to good effect. The art of the remix on display from the Ram veterans.

Yesterday's Trainspottle no.517 was Supply & Demand - Show Me

As G Squad evolved and shifted into Supply & Demand's funkier dancefloor sounds their skills would garner them appearances on labels like Chronic and one can hear why. Catchy riffs and rolling breaks deliver a strong groove on this one.

Yesterday was Blue Monday

Yesterday's Trainspottle no.543 was Orgy - Blue Monday (Optical Instrumental Mix)

Putting the late-90s alt rock cover aside this is about Optical flexing the Virus sound as it was arriving on the scene. With gamechanging alien bass, tight drums & neurofunk-defining grooves, like New Order before bridging and evolving sounds, this would brighten any dnb head's Monday.

Yesterday's Trainspottle no.600 was Drum Kru - Poltergeist

The d'n'b world relished any members of Bad Company, Virus, 1210 or DSCI4 vibing in the studio together as Drum Kru. Here we find dBridge, Maldini, Fierce & Ryme Tyme in a ghostly groove of experimental electronics & tight details while remaining true to the romance of neurofunk.

Yesterday's Trainspottle no.643 was Goldie - Kemistry VIP (Grooverider Remix)

The Rufige heartbeat remixed by the Rider showing one of the places that future artistic vision could go, where it had gone. Still on the sharpest metal edge, a broken down drum & bass soundscape, for the soundsystem. Inspired by those around (RIP), immersed in the underground.

DJ Red & Earth People - Ride

DJ Red continually adapting his sound fitting right in with the wave of punchy, techsteppin' neurofunk that raves were clamouring for delivering bass-heavy loops on his own label Stealth here. When it drops it's high-energy and relentless.
