Review: A producer whose previous originals, remixes and bootlegs have found their way into the sets of Riva Starr, Pete Tong, Kissy Sell Out and Dubfire, Josh "Cut & Splice" McInnes is surely going to reach even further with this perfect tribal-tech remake of a stone cold classic. With a glossy, filtered sheen to the production, the re-vocalled chorus is looped majestically over the mainroom beats, making it both a devastating DJ tool as well as a well-timed rehaul of a seminal tune.
Various - "Future:Dubstep:04" (continuous DJ mix by MRK1) - (1:17:22) 140 BPM
Review: An enormous 29 track selection of future dubstep faves new and old and perhaps some undiscovered beauties in there too from names like Stenchman, Cotti & Crazy D and more, all bound up nicely with a continuous DJ mix by MRK1. There's a fab blend of driving synth workouts (see "Life Turned Up Loud" or "Broken Box"), dubbed out basslines a la the Hatcha & Lost remix of RMS - "Cold", with some heavy moments (Trowa - "Black Pyramid") and quirky cuts like Stenchman's "Purple Cow". All in all, a comprehensive compilation which ticks all the boxes.
