Search & Destroy – Candyfloss (Loefah remix) (Hotflush 2006)

Video

2006 seems like a lifetime ago. Hard to believe that was when I dragged my mate down to Brighton’s first (!) dubstep night. When those beeps started in the mix I knew what was coming. I get all excited, cue lots of ‘wait for it.. wait for it…..’ and then blam. Loefah was on a roll that year.

G-Man – The Way You Move (2006)

The LFO thing kind of passed me by in the 90s so this was the first Gez Varley track I came across. Definitely the sound of being underwater in the year 2500. One of the sweetest basslines around and it doesn’t even appear until 4:10. Some back catalogue digging may be in order.

Kode9 & The Spaceape – Sine (2006)

Kode 9 linked up with Space Ape (known as Daddi Gee for the original single release) to create one of the finest remixes, or reimaginings, I’ve ever heard. I had no idea this was a riff on Prince’s Sign of the Times until I read it somewhere. The original is here for comparison > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zIjtwsrXfk
