    I'll go in here saying MM's mix is reminiscent of his great & classic early work, Andres production etc; but its a bit all over the place. That hard synth kicking in 1/3rd of the way through? Mmmm does it really work for the vibe? To the trained ear, it's slapped together.

    The other side's a bit rigid & uptight for me. I'd love to love this for the MM mix, but I don't.

        have a hard time believing the hate for the MM mix on this one. He absolutely smashes it. Gives me chills.

            The Samuel Davis Dark Soul Mix is the real bomb for me....

              Re:the Moodymann remix. He samples Leela James' "Music". It's a beautiful modern day funk/soul song and the girl has an amazing voice. Check out the lyrics too. Damnzenman's reference to the way that MM uses the sample, has it in the bag.

                Is strongly disagree with damnzenman and ahmedsamy. The Samuel Davis remix is the star of this release. The vocals on moodymanns are plain horrible. The percussive drums, clap and kick along with the subtle and repetitive vocal cut on A-side makes a perfect after hours groove. Its says dark soul mix. And it is.

                    I disagree. I think the Moodymann mix is like any other of his, same drums, don't get me wrong, I love his material, it's just typical. And horrible vocals. The other mix, however is easily mixable and just minimal enough to fit in any nice set. The vocals also leave a lot to be desired, though. It's definitely not 'unemotive' or 'soulless'. People just didn't adjust to this sound yet. I used to hate everything that sounded 'new' too. But I hear an awful lot of influences now, that I expended my EDM knowledge. And this doesn't contain annoying weird sounds like most minimal house, if we wanna get specific. I guarantee if I would to play this, even the oldschool heads would bob their heads. In the end I would rate this EP 6/10 cause of those horrible vocals.

                      Discogs claims this EP contains two songs. Thats an outright lie!

                      On the one hand we have Moodymanns mix which is, well, pure magic, basically sweaty dancefloor filling machinegunfunk. The usual quality one would expect from the genius that is Kenny Dixon Jr.

                      The other side of this ep however contains a totally useless, dull, formulaic, flat, wannabe everything its not, unemotive, funkless and most of all soulless attempt at "making" music. One for the Berlin fanboys me thinks. Skip it alltogether, trust me on this.

                      The samples Moodymann uses in his mix sum up perfectly what's wrong with the house and technosounds of today: "They don't sing like that no more. Music, music. There is no soul no more."
