Many of you will remember the sound of drum & bass circa 2001. For some a golden era of a genre which had recently grown from a British institution into an immense global movement cutting swathes through clubs and festivals the world over. That year saw Manchester’s Future Cut break through with arguably their most memorable and haunting release to date.
Metalheadz catalogue number METH040 was released in the summer of 2001 to the thunderous rush of DJs clamouring for white label promos and the sound of crowds losing themselves whenever it was dropped. The A side, of course, being Future Cut’s ‘Obsession’ – a track oozing with classic Metalheadz hallmarks and overlaid with Jenna G’s infectious vocals.
Fast forward to 2012 and Metalheadz are preparing to unleash a stunning reworking of this stone cold classic. Set to be released as a limited edition one-sided picture disc vinyl on Metalheadz’ Razor’s Edge offshoot, the Ulterior Motive remix of ‘Obsession’ will undoubtedly bring this beautiful piece of drum & bass to a modern audience.
Ulterior Motive, turn in a respectful and hard-hitting remix that pays homage to Future Cut’s original musical vision while adding enough punch for modern dance floors.
Haunting Headz pads pave the way for Jenna G’s luscious vocal which envelopes you, drawing you in before Ulterior Motive batter your senses with waves of crisp, rolling breakbeats, pounding bass notes and grinding synth stabs. Fans of the original will not be disappointed as Ulterior Motive retain all the signature sound of the original while bringing their own fresh style into the mix.
