Dream McLean - Sloe Gin (Dub Phizix Remix)
DreamMcLean_SloeGin_1400x1400.jpgLabel: MTA Records
Score: 7/10
It's a north/south sound connection on this one as London based rapper Dream McLean's Sloe Gin, his latest release on Chase & Status owned MTA Records, gets the D&B remix treatment from Manchester's very own man of the moment, Dub Phizix
Taking the almost disorientating multi pitched hook and vocals from the Noisia produced original, the hip hop intro has Dream telling us that maybe he "drinks sloe gin too fast" before Dub Phizix delivers a war like onslaught of drums that hits you hard on the drop. Seemingly ever changing snare hits and weighty low end kicks that will certainly do damage to a few speakers on a sound system. All the elements of Dub Phizix's percussive and tribal production style are on display here and compliment the bad man lyrical attitude of Dream McLean's bars. 
An altogether solid and strong remix offering, this is sure to cause more than a little bit of carnage on dancefloors for the next few months. Peep the original for some Timbaland-esque hip hop stylings too. Highly recommended.
