Finally for tonight, we have this four-track remix EP from Welsh upstarts Criminal Hype… it’s only been a couple of weeks since I reviewed the original EP but the rerubs certainly don’t disappoint.
German producer Tapesh tones down the beats a little on Acid Connection, making for a more heads-down pass than the original. Chiqito’s refix of Let Go is similarly a bit less in-your-face than the original, but maintains the small-hours feel while getting proper buzzy in the bass department. David Moran’s rub of Open Mind loses the garage-y flava of the original but will work on darker, techier floors, and then finally Ian Jay & Matt Williams do a similar job on their remix of Over You, albeit they retain a little more of the garage vibe than Moran does on Open Mind.
The latter two will come in handy for those who like to play a bit harder, but it’s the Tapesh and Chiqito rubs that are the essentials here for yours truly.
