Vinyl and Digital Reviews: Kris Wadsworth, Steve Angello and Alex Metric
…from mean beats to warm grooves
The title track possesses a mean techno kick and Hard Wax feel evolving into satisfying deep house Detroit grooves, but is partnered by an unnecessary Burnski remix. Jozif develops the house style of ‘Barefoot’ into a curious track with the feel of a modern (and enjoyable) Cure re-work.
Alex Metric and Steve Angello - 'Open Your Eyes feat. Ian Brown' (Positiva / Virgin)
…will dominate the Spring dancefloors
Metric already scored a hit with the original instrumental, and indie kids will just be pleased to hear Ian Brown’s voice again, so there’s a winning formula in the mix for filter disco, electro and house track; it sounds a little dated, but this will still dominate mainstream dancefloors.
