Watchin' Roaches, Climb The Walls

There's a cheeky booty breaks track called Spin Spin Sacharine kicking around just now. It leans pretty heavily upon the Armand Van Helden rub of the Sneaker Pimps' Spin Spin Sugar but toughens it up without tarnishing what is regarded (at least in my house) as a classic.

What's more encouraging though is this track and the Sneaky Pimps other bootleg (Gonna Be Big - same idea, different Van Helden remix as a source) are maybe nudging breaks to lean more towards the big speed garage basslines of many moons ago. It's perhaps a step backwards, but in this case it's no bad thing cos it's putting the fun back into what was becoming quite a predictable genre.

So, inspired by said record, another boot appears. Using the Armand Van Helden remix of Spin Spin Sugar, adding a generous portion of Sean Paul and then re-editing the whole thing with the help of a res filter and some virtual sellotape we have a radio-friendly-unit shifter. Possibly. It's all in the bass.

One other thing - track down the Sneaker Pimp's version of The Prodigy's Firestarter. It's glorious.
