Netsky – Love Has Gone (Dub Phizix Remix)
The original Love Has Gone featured its own single release and an appearance on the 2 album, it wasn’t really my cup-o-tea; a big, shrill, wobbly, dance-floor stomper. But now its been given the darker treatment by the revered Dub Phizix.
Its a bit out of style to see Dub Phizix on a hospital ep. His fierce, tribal beats are more at home in the arms of Critical or Exit Records. His recent works both heavily laden with gritty dub vocals this tune has been spared, in place of some much cornier lyrics and dark pulsing synth.
What I love about this tune is the massive contrast in styles; the synth reminds me of an earlier time in hospital records, sounds from ‘The Future Sounds of Russia’ from the likes of Mr Size F and Subwave. Backed up with a stinker of a bassline and tribal shuffles create a dance-floor destroyer.
I cant wait to drop this on some un-suspecting Netsky Fans, it’s an absolute cracker.
