Review: Scuba – From Within / Hard Boiled (Remixes)


Label: Hotflush
Catalog#: HFRMX005

Tracklist:

A: From Within – Marcel Dettmann Remix

B: Hard Boiled – SCB Edit

Rating: 4/5

The last installment in the remix series from Scuba, high anticipation and expection. I’ve been thriving the remix releases and they are all so good.

This part of the series is the least dubstep influenced of the three with a remix from Marcel Dettmann and a alias from Scuba. Keeping things straight forward and putting the subtle changes in focus, this defines one of the many roots to techno-dubstep.

Starting off with Dettmann’s remix which turns out to be just excellent. He threw out most of the elements in the original and reduced it into a core of powerful techno, letting only slight changes progress in the track and focusing on the smallest essences. Together with a haunting atmospheric pad and subtle bleeps the beat is delivered perfectly.

SCB, a new alias from Scuba, takes ‘Hard Boiled’ into a different direction and morphing it into a more forward groove. This track has an entierly different vision from the original which takes the track into a different direction. This release is made for the Funktion 1 soundsystem and both Dettmann and Scuba seem to have this in mind when making the remixes.

Very nice release, you can get it here.
