    Personally, I believe these should never be released.
    All they are is the previous tune rearranged with a couple extra bits thrown in. Its in a way mugging off the punters saying "hey look its a new tune" but what it actually is, is the same tune but its had a shower. Very rarely do I come across a vip which I actually prefer over the original.

    Unless its a remix from a completely different artist I steer clear of em.

    Is there anybody else that feels the same way or am I just being an anal faced critic??? Please enlighten me.

    Thanks!!

    I'm not gonna lie, I'm a bit of a sucker for a VIP. Especially when its a good song, once I'm done completely rinsing it, it's nice to hear a fresh slant.

    The only one I think its equal to the original though is Noisia - Facade VIP. Slightly hopeful for the full version of Audio - Headroom VIP

    There are Tons of good vips floating around and there are tons of bad ones or just ones that don't add much to the original. If the Vip doesn't do it for you then don't buy it, maybe someone else really likes that version of the tune and is happy that it got released.

    BSE's Drizzle VIP springs to mind.. I would happily pay extra for that tune. Shame that they aren't releasing it :(

    Rene LaVice was a master at his Headlock VIP. The hours he spent on it changing EVERY SINGLE DETAIL that's in the track.

    LOL.

    I don't think anyone thinks they are "a new tune".
    If they don't like VIP enough, people won't buy it. Simple. There's no sugar coating :p
    From what I've seen some VIPs tend to only get released if there is a large enough demand.

    Whenever I see a VIP thread being discussed it always reminds me of the greatest intro of a set in dnb history. DJ SS' Black VIP is the best VIP, shame the released version was garbage

    Good but the old Arsonist DJ Intro VIP was better IMO.

    VIPs are like any form of remix/alternative version. Some better, some worse and some pretty much the same as the original.

    do love me a good VIP.

    you've gotta bare in mind that the point of a VIP is for the dancefloor reaction.

    you hear the intro to that tune you like, it drops and it's a bit different, "WOOOOOIIIII!" [Gunfingers intensify]

    ^ this

    In fact most jump up VIPs pretty much identical to the originals, save for an extra wub

    Annix - War Dub VIP was a bit different (freebie as well)
