    So I was looking for some songs on youtube and I stumbled upon "Pendulum - Axle Grinder"..

    I already have this song MP3 but I decided to listen to it anyways.

    What I discovered confused me.

    Here is the one I already own:




    Here is the new one I listened to:



    (At about 1 minute you can see whats different between them.)

    As you can see the new one is MUCH better... IMO anyways :D


    I searched online to find out why there are two versions of this song and if I could get a way to download this new (or Older) version but I found absolutely NOTHING...

    The only thing I found was a comment in one of the youtube videos that said
    "Seems like they toned this song down for no reason. The original Axle Grinder is far superior."

    Thats it :|

    Anybody know whats going on with this song? Thanks.

    Tracks sometimes change for the general release. Maybe Pendulum (or the label) weren't happy with the first version.

    Does anybody know where we could get this 1st mix with decent quality? (atleast 320kb mp3 or is that asking too much :D)


    It has to be out there somewhere because the guy uploaded it to youtube :).

    Itunes, beatport, Juno download.

    however, if it didn't get a proper release and you are asking for a naughty download then you ain't getting it from asking on here

    What are you talking about naughty download?

    I'm saying, if the track isn't released then how do people get their hands on it like the youtube uploader?

    The one on vinyl is the watered down version! The original used to murk a dance differently... This was the stage I started to dislike Pendy

    If you're asking for a free download, then you may as well pack your bags now. We don't take kindly to piracy round here.

    The reason the original version never got released is because it was around the time Pendulum fell out with BBK, hence why both tunes on that 12 arent as good as the dubplate ones
