CRACKS | DEMUS REMIX
Never Say Die/Against The Grain/Supercharged
For the fifth and possibly biggest Never Say Day release to date, we welcome back the act that originally helped kick off the label in such fine style - the mighty Freestylers. Aston Harvey and Matt Cantor are dance music legends and remain two of the busiest DJs on the circuit. Following on from the massive ‘Ruffneck 09’ and their self-titled EP earlier this year, this latest package of remixes delivers a tantalising taste of what to expect from Freestylers’ forthcoming album.
‘Cracks’ ft Belle Humble (Ctrl Z Remix)
When Ctrl Z first heard the haunting vocals in the original version of ‘Cracks’, they instantly demanded they got their hands on the track so they could put their own stamp on it. The result is devastating. Inspired by the forward-thinking sounds currently coming from the likes of Subfocus, Noisia and Feed Me, Ctrl Z have created a genre-blurring fusion of dubstep, electro and fidget house. Impossible to pigeonhole, this remix is being supported by DJs as diverse as Foamo and Krafty Kuts (who’s been opening his sets with it) and High Rankin and Trolley Snatcha (who has been using it to close his!).
‘Cracks’ ft Belle Humble (Flux Pavilion Remix)
Josh Steele aka Flux Pavilion has been making serious waves in the dubstep scene and beyond over recent months. And understandably so – Flux Pavillion is an undeniably huge talent with great things ahead of him. Continuously rewriting the rules of dubstep production, Flux has managed to achieve the perfect blend of musicality and dance-floor destruction in his remix of ‘Cracks’. Since first airing on his exclusive Radio 1 mix in April, this has become one of the most sought-after dubs of 2010.
‘Cracks’ ft Belle Humble (Losers Remix)
The Losers are Eddy Temple-Morris and Tom Bellamy. Eddy is the Xfm radio legend responsible for the corruption of thousands of former rockers and Tom is the keyboard, FX pedal and guitar legend of Cooper Temple Clause fame. Fresh from remixing The Prodigy and Placebo, and completing their debut LP (set for release this summer), they have turned in a wonderful remix that acts as a homage to the best of 90s dance. Expect to hear this in Ibiza this summer!
DJ Support: N Type, Hatcha, Plastician, Rusko Krafty Kuts, Stanton Warriors, Foamo, Micky Slim, Trolley Snatcha, Bar9, High Rankin, SkisM & more…
Freestylers ft. Belle Humble - Cracks (Demus Remix) (Mediafire)
Demus is normally grinding the gears of the Never Say Die imprint but has recently turned his focus to the studio remixing the Foreign Beggars, Cutline and now the Freestylers. Inspired by the progressive sounds of Wolfgang Gartner, Deadmou5, and Myles Dyson, Demus has turned out a peak time electro house banger that is sure to be a favourite amongst electro heads in coming months.
