Surprised no one has gotten around to reviewing this release yet as it's been out for about 6 months now. I bought this about a month ago, and have given the whole 12 a good listen before I reviewed it. Firstly, let me say - great front cover. I absolutely love the artwork for this release. This for me is exactly what Metalheadz releases have always brought to the table. Quality music AND artwork. The T shirt for this release is awesome too. Anyway, back to the tunes.......
When I first heard this tune I must say I was initially disappointed. A little too minimalist, and not a lot going on. The more I hear this release though, the more I get it. 'Where They At' is a great track. All about the breaks. The production is first class and there are some really nice touches throughout. For a junglist, this 12 really is mana from heaven. Because of the style of the A side, there are literally loads of tunes that this track can be mixed in and out of. My only criticism of the A side is the length. I would have loved this tune to be a couple of minutes longer. The B side runs at 33rpm and again at first hearing was a bit of a disappointment. But 'The Chosen' and 'Control of People' are both nice tunes. The Chosen is a bit of a dark roller, and this brings me to my next point. The bassline in Control of People is very similar to the bassline in The Chosen. Obviously this leads me to believe that they would both go well mixed together. It does annoy me when I have to buy another copy to mix these two tunes. Why not instead add another track to the EP and add a second plate?....seems to be the way these days though, that you need to buy 2 copies of 12s. Especially 3 track release 12s.
All in all though, I really like this 12, especially the title track. Sounds even better when played extremely loud, so I would recommend doing so. I've recently bought quite a few more of Metalheadz latest releases and will be reviewing them soon. But for starters, I think this release is quality and would highly recommend it to anyone new to Metalheadz or Mikal, and to all D & B lovers in general.
