Mattias Fridell's remix has so much built-in darkness, it scared the pockets out of my pants. You will have to experience this one for yourself, go and hit play now, I'll wait here.
"The Masked Racer's" 'Beast' remix of Dupre's "Mad Monkey" builds upon the original mix with a wholly subterranean "depth-diving" atmosphere, continually twisting in a downward spiral within driving baselines, overtly shuffled grooves and severely minimalistic constantly building synth patterns, sucking themselves inside massive reverberated tunnels. The whole trip continually builds and builds in to glorious lawn mower styled breakdowns, cleverly quantized snare fills and atmospheric space, keeping the lead line of the original intact, but with a more menacing feel, a feeling that is similar to receiving a High Five in your face with a lawn mower!! A track to hypnotise and jeopardize the floor!! Is "The Masked Racer" in fact Harry, the mild mannered Janitor? We think not...
Disco Disco Disco!.You know how it goes, Discos here and Dat goes well.bad joke I know, but there's something a little twisted 70s disco about Pe & Ban's remix! Perhaps they just coined a new genre - minimal twisted tech-funk flare disco? There's a whole lot to like about this funky mix, and it's going to be a whole lot of fun for the dancefloor, blips, bleeps, flip-flops, 65 inch heels, toy submarines and dissonant catchy stabs that lead you right up to the industrial machine humming background that constantly builds and builds.You know that this number's going to explode off in to a cleverly orchestrated mess, but when it does, you'll be throwing shapes with your flares all over the dance floor, yep - we think flares will make a comeback to clubs by 12.12.12, and besides, wearing flares when the world ends would be a great way to go...
