We all have experienced the growing rift between the genres of our subculture and the disdain that the different "followers" within them have for the polar opposite genre. But it's interesting that one of the premiere Drum and Bass DJs has bridged that gap, and remixed some of the biggest anthems of the Trance world. This CD has names even the biggest new convert to Techno can recognize as belonging to "the other side." Ever heard Tiesto, Sasha, and BT with a sick snare backbeat and ripping bass line? No? Well hold on! Dont worry if youre a one of those purist junglists because Tech Itch, Usual Suspects, and Kemal are represented also.
My first surprise was seeing the remixed Trance tracks, my second surprise was seeing my longtime friends Evol Intent (Gigantor, Knick, and AJ) as having a remix on this album. And even more so, its one of the touted new Jungle/Trance tracks. These guys are sick, their production skills are hands down top notch. Ya could say they'd rate a Skimpy chicken combo, with long-side fries! HAHA!
Trance head? Junglist? Both? Heads up!
