Track AA: Heartache ft. Ad-Apt (Crissy Criss Dubstep Remix)
Label: Spearhead Records
Oh my word! The Spearhead Records juggernaut rolls ever onwards towards world domination with yet another massive 12”.
Label owner BCee’s ‘Heartache’ was an instant hit on drum & bass dancefloors just a few months ago, and now it gets yet another lease of life with fresh remixes from Radio 1 favourite Matrix and BBC 1Xtra’s Crissy Criss.
Matrix heads up with his signature house-influenced sound. Echoed synth lines blend with the minimal beats perfectly and Ad-Apt’s vocals slip and slide through the mix like finest champagne down your throat. Progressive and incredibly powerful, this remix takes an already great track and gives it a mild turbo injection for the dancefloor.
In complete contrast Crissy Criss coaxes a crisp dubstep rework out of ‘Heartache’. Coming correct like the bastard son of Skream and Faithless, Crissy’s remix has a surprisingly laid back overtone which somehow still manages to pack a punch.
