Hot on the tails of her continuing live drum and bass tour, the New Zealand born MCing songstress Tali hits it heavy with two major remixes of her original tune Lyric On My Lip, the third single release from her LP of the same name.
The radio mix is the original Tali tune, and it saunters and grooves with her inimitable MCing and rhymes. The bass is deep and pulses the listener into what can only be dancing. Ed Rush And Optical's offering is a deep dark reworking, dispensing with the sunny original and moving instead to an altogether more sombre terrain. The hook is a serious charmer and propels this tune as a sure fire club anthem. Beautiful.
Full Cycle's Krust And Clipz team up for the first time with the second remix and it too is a stunner. They use more of the original melody, and with Tali's rhythmic MCing they overlay multi beats, tranced loops and gorgeously distorted dirty basslines. Tali's brand of drum and bass, as heard on the album, is unashamedly marketed for broader appeal: the woman will not be hemmed in. However, hardcore d 'n'b-ers will perhaps prefer these harder mixes as they slam club crowds to fervour.
