Existence is Resistance are pleased to announce the remastered re-release of Same People's legendary proto-garage classic 'Dangerous'.
Lovingly remastered at AIR studios in London by the master masterer Matt Colton and featuring remixes by two of the originators of the scene, 'Persian and DJ Texsta' who both have long and rich histories in the Drum and Bass, UK Garage and House scenes. Rounding off the package is long time friend and cohort Nick Dunton of 65D Mavericks and Surface Records fame dropping in from the techno scene with his jazzed out liquid mix.
It’s been 17 years since Dangerous was first released on the ‘Same People’ record label. It went on to have a huge influence on the fledgling Dubstep/Grime scene with its heady mixture of rolling basslines, ragga influences and fat beats that many an MC were eager to rhyme over.
The Original mix was written on the Commodore Amiga with only 2 megabytes at it's disposal, proving that a million dollar studio isn't necessary to create timeless records. Dangerous quickly blew up on the emerging UK Garage circuit immediately after the very first run of white labels, which were delivered by hand to the then vibrant record stores dotted throughout London, and went on to make appearances on over 30 different compilations along the way. The original white label mix is now available for the very first time in 17 years, remastered and remixed on limited vinyl for your listening pleasure.
Persian's 2012 re-fix updates the original beautifully, with some of the heaviest bass you could wish to hear on a rig, whilst delicately balancing glorious detroit tinged strings and rolling drums. DJ Texsta's mix is a solid peak time UK funky / post dubstep classic in the making - all swirling effects, vocal samples and of course the all important bass! Nick Dunton's liquid mix harks back to the early 90's with lush strings, a wonderfully chopped up break, jazzy keys and a super low frequency bass that hint to influences from Carl Craig to Bukem and beyond.
With all the mixes receiving heavy rotation amongst the main players across scenes, this is vintage stuff, repackaged, and remixed for 2012….
