Review: Moby on Shogun Audio... There's a sentence most of us didn't expect to see in a hurry. As with any Moby remix scenario, the shoes to fill here are huge. Naturally with Friction's mob, everyone has delivered something special that adds to the original without saying anything that isn't needed. Both Technimatic and Pola & Bryson add a sparkling, star-gazed boost to their works while Fourward turn the iconic Twin Peaks rave bomb "Go" into a concrete melting neuro thunder jam. Icy seals the deal with a twisted, broken glass halftime perspective on "Natural Blues". Respectfully next level.
Alix Perez - "Down The Line" (feat MC Fats) - (6:27) 172 BPM
JO - "R-Type" - (5:51) 174 BPM
Subwave - "Think" - (5:58) 175 BPM
Shogun Audio Presents: The Classics (2004-2017) (continuous DJ mix) - (57:08) 174 BPM
Review: When a label as consistent and as well rounded as Shogun Audio announce a 'Classics' release it obviously sends shivers around the drum & bass community. It's hard to imagine condensing thirteen years of dominance into a minimized box of thirty classics, but just looking at the tracklisting is awe-inspiring. We see classic reappearances from the likes of Friction, Spor, Break, Icicle, Rockwell, Spectrasoul, Alix Perez, Camo & Krooked and that's not even half of the names involved. To break it down simply, this compilation summarizes why Shogun hold such a legendary status within the scene, through incredible consistency and magnificent diversity of sound.
