    Besides all the weak approaches to remix this classic the Lord Of the Null lines (Fracus & Darwin Remix) must be a joke.

      I think it is worth remembering that Kniteforce isn't a purist oldskool hardcore label - the combination of new and old styles is consistent with their other recent releases.

      (And the idea that previous KF labels were all segmented by style doesn't really make sense given that the labels mentioned were running at different times - early Knitebreed releases were the same style as Remix and Kniteforce, late 90s Kniteforces were also bouncy 4/4, and KFA did also release stuff that was in the early KF style as well as more contemporary stuff...)

      For a track that's already been remixed so successfully as an oldskool hardcore track, having such varied and different remixes seems like the more interesting approach (which is what I love about Kniteforce) - i'd take that over four similar-sounding 93/94 hardcore versions personally. Plus I love the Shoreman remix - another great blend of new and old and full of new ideas not in the original or Foul Play version - worth the price alone. And I love the artwork too.

        I agree with the two comments below. Obviously it is probably one of the hardest tasks to meet expectations when remixing such classics. That being said, yes, but no! Assigning remixers such as on plate two is a desecration to the legacy of the original track!

        I'd rather prefer compiling tracks of one style on one record and of others on an other, so that you can spend your money more effectively on what you like (as you would do with digital releases...)

          I agree with super-fonkey. These remixes are a let down. I immediately bought on faith because Kniteforce is a unique label I respect and want to support. They never shy away from trying something new or radical. Maybe I was also expecting too much. I personally would of settled for something with a bit of 'gumption' but for me they're just mediocre remixes at best which don't do the original or the Foul Play mix justice.

            I haven't played the vinyl yet but have listened to the digital downloads that accompany the purchase from Kniteforce so I can't comment on the quality of the pressing although the double 10" sure does look good in that endearingly DIY style that is Kniteforce's trademark.

            My hot take after one listen is that I can't say that this lives up to the hype musically-speaking. This is a set of remixes of two iconic tunes, the original Lord of the Nulls Lines and the Foul Play Remix, so the bar is about as high as it gets. Acen aside, the others are just too new-school to pass muster. Shimon & Benny L is honking modern dnb while Fracus & Darwin is cheesy AF modern happy hardcore (and I like HH). Shoreman is better but is still too modern a take on hardcore for my ears. Maybe I was expecting something more faithful to the style of the originals, I don't know.

            Acen mix is unsurprisingly the most in keeping with the ethos of the originals but it didn't blow me away at first listen. It will likely grow on me, as hopefully will Shoreman's mix. I can't see myself ever liking the other two.

            That said, no regrets in buying the bundle. I fully support Chris's efforts with not just the Hyper-on reissues but everything he is doing so if I can support the continuation, I don't mind not loving every single track I buy.
