When I found out that they were going to do a remix album for the Sound Sphere Recordings back catalog, I was very excited. This label has always been a personal favorite of mine ever since their first release and still is to this day. Then I started seeing the list of who was going to be doing the remixes and what songs they had chosen, and the anticipation for this release started to escalate even more!
For over 15 years, I have been lucky enough to call E-Sassin and Mason good friends of mine. In that time they have both released epic, no nonsense up front drum and bass on some of the biggest labels in the game, with some of their biggest and best releases having come out on their own labels. When I got word that Mason was doing the rework for Microbes (one of the newest songs in the Sound Sphere catalog) I had a good feeling this was going to stay in my set lists for a while to come. Then I heard the final version of this remix and it solidified those hunches. The remix features a distortion heavy version the original vocal samples that are followed up by a series of synth bass stabs that are a perfect marriage of classic Sound Sphere and Mason sounds that will leave you just nodding your head yes and making a bass face like no other. From there the breaks come in and this remix really takes off. It’s a fast paced mash up of the original song with all the touches of a master craftsman on remix details. This one is not for the weak of heart or for anyone looking for a more laid back vibe. This is strictly for the headstrong and die-hards. It’s a treat for me to see long time vets doing new and exciting work after all these years. Be sure to check out the rest of the remixes on this album as each one is strong and not to be missed.
