Starting off as a mellow techy roller, "Set Level" quickly begins foaming at the mouth and disintegrating into its own bassy black hole. Hyperactively scattered with high-energy sounds and samples and with a rainforest-themed breakdown B-complex would be proud of, it's a dance floor smasher for sure. "Stemcell" opts for the 'rolling out through space Carl Sagan style' approach, as synths rush past at hyperspeed and light years pass in a matter of seconds. Suddenly, and without warning, this interstellar journey is abruptly ended with a venture into Dillinja-influenced jungle breaks. Luckily towards the end of the track the cosmic pads return for long enough to provide a safe journey home.
There's only one thing that can fill the craterous holes caused by Jem One's demolition session album Infinite Circle. And that's a supreme double header from Digbee. Usually running with SR, both "Red Moon" and "Good Times" see him rolling solo with two infectious jungle workouts that will leave you feeling insatiable for more. The former is all about the drum edit that's tantamount to spellbinding while the latter hits with more of a deeper, spaced-out charm where a bass melody does the driving while the brisk breaks do the steamrolling.
It's about time SR and Digbee got a little more attention and these remixes are going to be the nudge that does it. Kicking off with a stunning vintage-style VIP of "Jog On", breaks take over for a rapidfire, under the radar dancefloor destroyer. Made for pirate radio, if this came out 25 years ago we wouldn't be surprised. Next up, DJ Randall's tough, rough n ready remix of "Nostromo" brings out the big guns with deep tribal sounds adding extra tension. Callide's remix of "Supersonic" brings a touch of mainstream magic to proceedings and then DJ Vapour drags it all back to the good old ravey days of 93-95 with "Back To Basics". Mental.
