As the Dutch maestro known as Icicle wrecks shop across Europe with his Entropy Live tour, the rest of us get an extra-special summertime treat in the form of the Entropy Remixed EP on Shogun Audio. With heavy-hitters like Black Sun Empire, Phace, Joe Ford, Ulterior Motive and Proxima taking on their favorite tunes off Icicle’s Entropy LP, the results are molten hot and are already melting skulls in VIP circles.
From the deadly precision of Phace in “Dreadnaught” mode to the heavy, deeper vibes of Ulterior Motive on “Will You Be Mine,” the EP reflects the raw spirit of the originals impressively filtered through the eyes and ears of each remixer. For pure heavy-weight pressure, head straight to Black Sun Empire’s relick of “The Edge” or Joe Ford’s dank twist on “Neutralise.” Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better Proxima turns Icicle and Mefjus’ “Isolation” into a dome cracking half-time burner. Flipping the beats and dumping that low end pressure in all the right places make this a standout tune on a standout EP.
You’ll have to stand in line if you want this one, as it’s not due until June 29. For those of you vinyl lovers our there be sure to order the vinyl from the Shogun Shop to receive “Isolation” as a free MP3.
