Plate #2 in the Covert Ops Series 3 release - "Mescaline" is probably my pick for the whole series. The first breakdown sets the tone with a vocal sample from The Matrix, "You ever have that feeling where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?...All the time, it's called mescaline." I really like the way the track evolves because it can be used to come out of a more atmospheric mix or move into the harder side of things. If I had to compare it to another track it would be Kiko's "Passport". "Fast & Furious" brings things a bit harder with 16th note basslines and trancey synths from the man ICR. Also coming from his production skills is part 2 of the flipside called "Primavera" (my 2nd fav. tune in the series). The drum breaks were worked a bit more and are even graced by the vocal talents of Enya throughout. I would not put this at a highpoint of a mix, but it is an extremely musical tune to be enjoyed at any time.
