Review: The Silver Apples released one of the most influential garage rock albums of the 60s, a piece of work that still shifts endless copies to this day, and one which Beatles fanatics often have in their back-burners. Recently, to our surprise, they offered the remix rights to The Darrow Chem Syndicate, a raucous breakbeat crew who like to build hard beats and nasty basslines! "I Have Known Love", "You And I", and "I Don't Care What People Say" are all given a big makeover, yet somehow managing to retain some of the original's euphoric 60s vibe that will simply not grow old. An interesting experiment, that's for sure..!
Review: For this one it's time to strap in for some explosive breakbeat motions as The Darrow Chem Syndicate get busy alongside Nipponeer Japan for four tracks of experimental remix weight. We kick off the project with Groove Mind's crunchy funk infused recreation of 'Raptures Over', before Lack Jemmon gets busy with his epic fidget overhaul of 'The Circus Driven Thing. Next, Kid panel brings out the fun with his quirky rebuild of 'Take A Little Ford', before we round the project off with AGFA who brings the funk to the front on his tasty rework of 'The Impossible Spin'
Review: As a movement, The Darrow Chem Syndicate have been causing quite a stir of late, and that is represented here quite perfectly through the utter madness of their brand new 'Planet Of The Chimps!' EP project. The tracklisting begins with Kid Panels breakbeat heavy rework of 'Lousy Human Bastards', jam packed with vicious lead reese synths and pounding drum designs. On the flip, we are blessed with an appearance from Chris SU and his neuro inspired rework of 'Chimpathy', set to tear any dance to utter shreds through its destructive drum arrangements and earth shattering bass synths.
Review: It's time to take in some super original breakbeat flavours on this one as The Darrow Chem Syndicate touch down on the well respected Nipponeer Japan imprint. This project consists of three super exciting remixes, the first of which we embrace is the energetic Mob Ties relift of 'Bucovinaize', using the colourful horn melodies as the lead instrumentation. Next, we see Kuplay get busy with their vibrant overhaul of 'Malicious Venus', again switching up the grooves and reusing exciting vocal dribs and drabs, finishing up with the awesome Kid Panel rethink of 'The Bibber'.
Review: We dip nicely into the futuristic realms of bass music on this one as The Darrow Chem Syndicate join forces with the rapidly rising sounds of Nipponeer Japan, a label who seem to keep impressing at every turn. We begin on Philly Blunt's nostalgic rework of 'Get Loose', packed with hard hitting drum breaks and clever sampling, followed by the more hardcore bass tones and rolling drum work of Kuplay's remix of 'Like That!'. Following this, we finish up the project with Pray For Bass getting busy on an overhaul of 'The Salami Project'. Exciting material from start to finish on this one.
