Quotes: This is going to be one of THE remix-releases of 2008 – I can say for sure despite the fact the year has only just started…Oh My God!! Three amazing remixes of Ben Mono plus the already happenin’ original mix of Hit The Bit! Loose Cannons do an killer neo-rave version of “Hit The Bit” which brings early 90′s warehouse to ´08. Dibaba’s mix of “Midnight Sun” is a more evil take on rave 2008,an tech-electro stomper which will work beautifully in a tech-house/electro house-tinged set as a build-up. Also,the postpunk-attitude of the vocals work perfectly in this version.Dark!! The absolute star among the remixers this time,though, is Lorenz Rhode. An A-M-A-Z-I-N-G electrofunk remix with hilarious 80´s synthriffs thrown on the top. Respect! Jukka Hannukainen (Radio Helsinki)
Info: The next smash hit and title track from Ben Mono’s last years album! Smashing against the sonic perimeter it features vocals by the royal Miami Bass bitches Yo Majesty from Tampa, Florida. The bossy braggadocio of those kryptonite pussies sounds like ESG teaming up with JJ Fad and the Geto Boys… Three remixers from three different sound territorries are giving a glimpse on Ben Mono´s innumerable preferred styles. From Alan Braxe-a-like Hip House (Lorenz Rhode) via Swedish clashy electro punk (Dibaba) to very British basslines that could cause severe earthquakes if not kept under strict fader control (Loose Cannons) – all mixes provide an advanced and 100% dancefloor compatible approach to the rap oriented original which will easily satisfy even the biggest DJ snob.
