Almost a year ago, BCee released his long-awaited debut LP entitled Beat The System on his own mighty imprint Spearhead Records. The well-received album was a 15-track exploration into multiple sub-genres of drum and bass and showcased several recognized collaborators such as S.P.Y., Robert Owens, and Shaz Sparks. After a temporary delay caused by Spearhead distributor Nu Urban Music closing its doors, a complete re-tooling of the entire original album has just been released with remixes of all 15 tracks coming by way of some of dnb’s biggest names. The new album is appropriately named Remix The System, and is every bit as eclectic as the Norwich producer’s original LP from a year ago.
BCee’s Remix The System is certainly a candidate for best dnb album of 2012. The sheer volume of tunes to be had on this LP is staggering, not to mention the level of talent contributing to each individual remix. With support already coming from BBC Radio, tunes like Estonian trio Mutated Form’s remix of So Right will be sending ravers into chaotic fits for some time to come. From Darrison’s smooth vocals to MF’s creative side-chaining, the remix of So Right is so entrancing, it refuses to let go! Also appearing on the album is the K-Tee & Friction remix of Is Anybody Out There?–which appeared on UKF’s Bass Culture album about a year ago. This S.P.Y. and BCee collab was easily one of the standouts on the original album, and the remix is just as addictive. Another tune not to be missed on Remix The System is the re-work of Looking Glass by Viper artist Metrik. This massive remix has ‘big-room anthem’ written all over it. Head over to Beatport to check out the full list of producers that contributed to this album–it’s mind-blowing!
