As the great Monty Python adage goes... "And now for something completely different"! Not wanting to become a labeled, err.... label, Rejected ready themselves on this release, to drop the disco and head into techier territory, with a debut from a UK house don, who teams up with a fresh new duo.
Steve Mac should need no introduction. With a remix roster that reads like a who's who of House and Popular music, and an archive of work that ranges from classic Rhythm Masters hits to National Chart success, Steve can be held aloft, quite rightly as one of the UK's finest electronic musical exports.
Teaming with the Stripper, the trio make their debut on Rejected with 'Whistle' and '2 Fingered Salute'. Elementally stripped, its the punchy bassline and regimental snaps of the Snare that, combined with its piercing breaks and of course 'whistle', that make the lead track most potent.
'2 Fingered Salute' with its spooky hammering, lays its cards from the off, with its heads down, forward charging bassline and one note melody. Hypnotic and deadly, it packs a hell of a punch to go with its salute.
