A heavy breakbeat workout with a series of hard-hitting mixes, Absinthe definitely lives up to the title. General Midi's mix chops up samples in a ruthless way, all the while letting synths bubble away over some chunky drums. Matos's mix takes a more disco approach and lets the vocal run, while System 22's mix is a white noise-fest complete with glitchy beats to ramp up the tension. Check out the mixes in full if you like a drop of the hard stuff!
"Back for more" is the third single to have been lifted from General Midi's excellent second album, Operation Overdrive. ?4 Million Ways? and "Get It Down," feat Whiskey Pete were the first tracks from the album that Distinctive Records decided to release. Now, the breaks imprint has also decided that "Back for more" deserves a piece of the primetime.
Huge, shouty vocals from breakbeat?s first lady, Odissi screech over electro bass and rock guitars. Like all things General Midi, the track has ran away with the normal preconceptions of breakbeat. "Back For More" hints at electro, punk, house and hip-hop within the same four minutes.
This release comes with two remixes, equally deserving of merit in their own right. First, General Midi remix for themselves, taking things down more of a dancefloor route. 'Taste Of Trouble' mix is a full on, high throttle serge towards the dancefloor, a perfect weapon for any DJ to destroy the room during their peak time set. The other remix comes from Odissi herself. Stripping her vocals down somewhat from the album version, her dark and moody remix is for the edgier clubs the world over. A dubby number, full of bass and FX, her remix reveals yet another talent that lies within this truly multi-talented lady.
