Reflections EP [Cue Recordings]

Ever since its inception over a year ago, Cue Recordings has acquired a reputation of punching well above its weight. With Tommy Dub at the helm, the once small Australian label has continued to shake the drum and bass scene worldwide, with lengthy Radio 1 play as well as stints in the Beatport charts. With a back catalogue already featuring massive releases from the likes of recent Hospital signings Fred V & Grafix, and more recently Squash’s huge ‘Divine EP’, Cue now revisits some of the hits responsible for its sudden success.

A reimagining of four tracks that have swiftly helped define the impressive reputation the label enjoys today, the ‘Reflections EP’ is another example of Cue’s continuing desire to make its mark on the drum and bass scene. Featuring remixes from the likes of Technique Recordings superstar, Phetsta, rising Russian producer, Eastcolors, Hospital Records and Viper Recordings alumni, Agent Alvin and the mighty Mutated Form, the ‘Reflections EP’ boasts a heavyweight lineup and puts a fresh spin on some of the tracks that have defined Cue Recordings short and spectacular history.



Fred V - In My Head VIP (Mutated Forms Remix) CUE004 by cuerecordings

‘Fred V – In My Head VIP (Mutated Forms Remix)’
Fred V’s smooth number ‘In My Head VIP’ gets a reworking from Grid favorites Mutated Forms, one of the most groundbreaking acts in the scene today. By coupling the classic, rolling melody of original with hard-edged breaks and lingering vocals edits, Mutated Forms change the complexion of the track whilst maintaining everything that made it great in the first place. Boasting production edits from Hospital’s Fred V and Mutated Forms, it’s no surprise ‘In My Head VIP (Mutated Forms Remix)’ is one of the most sumptuous tracks you will hear in 2012.

‘Squash – Squeak (Agent Alvin Remix)’
Boasting a discography that features the likes of Hospital Records and Viper Recordings, New Zealand-based Agent Alvin works his magic on the already slamming ‘Squeak’ by Squash. Boasting a restless, varied bassline, this remix bounces along with real groove and attitude. Combine all the elements that made the original so good with the renowned intricate production of Agent Alvin, and the result is a track that bubbles and fizzes, and an instant way to get the dancefloor moving.

‘Grafix – Holding On (Phetsta Remix)’
This remix sees Technique’s Phetsta take the subtle rolling sounds of Grafix’s smash hit ‘Holding On’, and turn it on its head with fantastic results. With the original clocking up over a quarter of a million views, Phetsta wisely keeps elements of the much loved original and combines them with his own trademark style, creating another classic in its own right. Featuring uplifting synths, soulful vocals and a rolling bassline to match, ‘Holding On (Phetsta Remix)’ is a feel good tune you won’t get tired of hearing.

‘Squash – Divine (Eastcolors Remix)’
Squash’s ‘Divine EP’ was a breakthrough EP of 2011, with four blinding tracks that put his name firmly on the map, and cemented Cue’s place as a label to watch. This remix of the title comes from minimal giant Eastcolors, one of the brightest talents in the more stripped back side of drum and bass. Dispensing with much of the originals eclectic feel, this Eastcolors remix turns the vibrant ‘Divine’ into a more ominous affair. The paranoia-inducing, bass-heavy monster takes the iconic vocals of the original and turns them into haunting, ghostly echoes. Featuring lashings of atmosphere, harsh drums and cheery-turned-haunting vocals, this is a totally different beast, and one sure to destroy the dancefloor.
