When Crissy Criss dropped his War on Silence album in 2019 it was obvious that things were about to change. Having been on the grind for decades behind the decks and in the drum and bass trenches, the album elevated him into the stratosphere and solidified his place within the drum and bass pantheon.
Released on his own War on Silence imprint, both the artist and the label have continued to crush with dancefloor-driven tunes that are reaching yet another milestone as Crissy Criss prepares to unleash a massive remix project of the album featuring heavy-hitters from multiple electronic music genres.
“Need You Now’ is the first single to get the remix treatment and while Defectiøn give the original a proper 2-step/UK Garage makeover, it’s S9’s deep and deadly rework that has us chomping at the bit eager for more. Taming the rugged edges of the original ever-so-slightly, S9 bring on the goosebumps as the heart-wrenching vocal and crisp beat ride a warm wave of bass that hits in all the right ways.
It’s a massive introduction to what is shaping up to be an epic remix project so check the heat below and lock your copy of the single here as this one’s out now.
