So, I had spent the morning working out a rattle in my car speakers because I was SURE that this mix was going to be bad-ass. I pre-ordered so I got it the day of the US release.
To tell the truth when I first put on this mix, I was pissed. It starts a bit mellow and slow, albeit good but not badass and almost no bass (I'm a bass-head) Then track 5 hit and I almost threw the CD out the damn window. The overbearing terribly off key vocal wrenched into my brain and I felt like I wasted the whole day and $15.Realizing that not sticking it out would make me weak, I can say proudly(now) that I stuck it out and discovered the "real" mix starts on track 6. From there till the end Ramadanman/Pearson Sound just shreds intellectual hi-fi "dub-tech"? "Step house?" "Bass-step"? "Hi-Fi Dub stepsister house in-law"? Whatever you call it there are elements of 90s bass music, dubstep, garage, a sortof world "street" vibe, and broken latin beats. This mix has balls, and to me its one of the dopest things I've heard in a long time. Its an exposure to a new MINDSET.
Fix your speakers and play it loud. The anthem is the VIBE
