In all due respects, if you need background deets on Brockie and Ed Solo you need to go back to school. If you don't, then you know what level of trouble we're dealing with here as the two hugely influential titans of the genre revisit their Undiluted vaults for an incendiary collection of high grade bruisers dating back to the turn of the century. Still hitting with the same spiked out futurism as they did almost 20 years ago, tracks like the distorted riff blunderbuss "Cheltenham Bass" the slappier, break-riddled "Mind Overload" and the star-gazing riff of "Dutty" still pack major punches to this day. Not ones to just look back, they've also commissioned a load of on-point remixes from some of the sharpest acts in contemporary jump-up: Turno, Serum, Annix, T>I... Need we go on? The story continues.
This album takes ten of the juiciest cuts from the veteran Russian DJ's 10th studio album, Don't Be Scared, and presents them in instrumental form. Vadim stated that he wanted the album to be seen as a break from his past, and when listened to in this new context, this is more apparent than ever. Minus the vocal distractions, what we are left with simply exquisitely produced electronic mood music and beats. In short, an excellent listen and one that will also appeal to electronica fans originally put off by the hip-hop style vocals of the original release.
