Cartridge / Pyro & Jesta feat. Techtronix - Edge City / Cho + Malsum / Implex Remixes [Nerve019]

I’d been keeping an eye on Cartridge’s beats for a while and this track was my favourite of his. It has a wicked old skool feel to it – nice rolling breaks and big chunky techstep stabs rolled up in a quality package! He’s unfortunately not really writing any more drum n bass these days but has a rather cool band called Lazersnake which I recommend you check out.

And onto “Cho” – well we had the idea of running a wee remix competition online with this one – with the winning mix being featured on the Mp3 release when the 12″ came out. Unfortunately we hit even more stumbling blocks with distribution at this point and we ended up getting quite a bit of grief from people on forums for taking ages to announce the winner of the competition etc and get the release sorted. In the end we chose Malsum’s amazing remix as the winner – with Implex’s a close second and here they are for your listening pleasure!

The original was an epic piece of rolling techy dnb – the kind that Pyro specialises in! The remixes upped the dancefloor factor a little but kept the atmosphere.
