'Rejections: The Remixes EP1' gave the original LP the remix treatment for the first time in early 2015, from names like Bob Citrus, Jonny Wahna and L-Wiz, who came though to re-shape and re-imagine some gems from the original.
Summer of 2016 sees the release of 'Rejections: The Remixes EP2' — the 3rd and final installment of this epic trilogy. This time around some of NexGen Music's best loved talent step up to re-craft the original tracks into yet more stunning and beautifully executed versions.
First up, Earth Leakage Trip gets all dubbed out with his remix of 'One Eyed Empress', then D.A gets his hands on 'Auringonlasku Sunset' and transforms the original into a soulful, liquid DNB roller with some help from Jay Roland on vocals. Next up is Totrox's remix of 'Smokers Delay' which calms proceedings down a little, then NexGen superstars Kachina re-work 'Consumption & Lies' in their own unique way. C.O.U.G.H.'s remix of 'Rejections' then saunters onto the EP with a strangely wonky appeal, then Rob Sparx's remix of 'Trouble Bubbles' acts as a call to arms for all the REAL Dubstep heads. Subsense's remix of 'Old Photos' is reminiscent of a soundtrack to a 90's Gangster flick set in London, then Physics ups the pace and vibes with his remix of 'Deep Listening'. Things start to get a little bluesy with Juho from Narva Falls remix of 'Haarlem Joint', and rounding the EP off we have Earth Leakage Trip's alternative dubby remix of 'One Eyed Empress' and an instrumental of D.A's 'Auringonlasku Sunset' Remix.
The 'Rejections' project is a particularly special one for both Neveready and NexGen. With this release of part two of the remixes, a new era in the label's history is heralded by a NEXt GENeration of talented producers. All three releases, the album & both remix EP's are by far the most representative of the music group's sound and ethos. As always — it's the music that matters at NexGen.
Listen, buy, and enjoy! :)
