Why stop at one Junkie when you can have two?? Ben's companion bubble junkie is here to give halc's spring junkie some addicted-but-funky company with an excellent take on the 'Labyrinth' theme.
"I think I finally managed to get Ben back into remixing solo after dragging him through a couple collabs (ha ha). This was his first attempt at a solo mix in several years (preceding his somewhat-recent "Castlemania 2010" remix), so I was happy to kick my Labyrinth mix to the curb and give him the spot. A day or two later, he handed me a finished track, and suffice to say, he knocked it out of the park. FAT bass and punchy breakbeats accompany an army of chiptune sounds and a Daft Punk-esque talkbox lead; fun, nostalgic, and downright badass. I've always kinda thought of it as the "poster child" of the album, and it is an honor to have it included.
Unfortunately for Ben, it's just way too good and will probably be the peak of his success. (lol) BTW, you should check out his new original album too! :D http://bbriggs.halc9bit.com."
What he said; Drew and Ben are collectively Insert Rupee, so it's perhaps not surprising they appreciate each other's solo work, but it's also hard NOT to, no matter who you are. That talkbox lead is just too perfect for the main melodic riff; it creates an insta-hook that functions on all levels to ingrain its funky twists and turns into your cerebral cortex, and the overall quantities of beefy bass & crunchy, shuffling drums are at least 1000% your recommended daily values. Addiction never sounded so good as the dynamic duo's pair of junkie mixes help The Sound of Speed shine with electrified glory.
