The intro sounds like Muse, bouncier, but Muse – maybe a remix of Muse by Noisia. Maybe that’s what the Qemists have always sounded like? Disguised by the automatic street cred that grew from collaborations with artists such as Jenna Gibbons and Wiley. Whether or not the comparison is worthy is debatable, but I’m not relating either artist to how good they are, I’m just saying there are similarities, especially with the vocalist on this track (Matt Rose).
It’s the same old Qemist formula; drum and bass for those of us with a more rock friendly pallet, though if they know what’s good for them they wont try to tackle anything live again for a while (though the attempt was admirable and not that shabby). As with most tracks not yet concluded to be brilliant, all judgements must be reserved until the breakdown, which is magnificent in this case; sick beats that rarely get pulled out of the bag in such an original way. So this track is not perfect, but there are perfect bits in it, which I guess is more than anyone can ask for.
