Blaze The Fire (Stray Remix) / Dove From AboveVarious Artists
Sick Music 3 sees the revival of the highly successful compilation series from Hospital Records and as usual, there’s a slew of top-notch talent from across the spectrum.
*A rare outing of D+B on 7” this sampler is for the DJ and collector alike and will be limited to 1000, with no re-presses.
*London based producer Stray heads up this 7” vinyl sampler with his storming remix of the recently released Danny Byrd track “Blaze The Fire (Rah!)” featuring vocals from legendary jungle MC General Levy. Here, Stray re-works the original, amplifying the old skool jungle vibes with rattling breaks, punchy kicks and plenty of attitude. Picking up DJ support from the likes of Toddla T, DJ Hype, Sub Focus, S.P.Y and Baliley, this one’s all about the drums. *On the flipside is the stripped down funk of “Dove From Above” by esoteric Estonian Raiden. Featuring the vocal talents of Klose, here a disorientating spoken lyrical pattern is paired with warping, rolling bass, punchy drums and lithe percussive touches. Seven inches of weighty future funk at 170bpm makes this one irresistible. *This 7” forms part of the full Sick Music 3 package which also includes a 12” sampler (NHS221T) and a 4x12” vinyl album (NHS222LP)
