Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
I donít know if anyone has pointed it out yet, but Tree and Two Chairsó they entirely removed the piano that runs through the whole track. Iím gutted. The interplay between the piano, minimal techno sounds and percussion put this track to a very high spot for me, personally being close to one of the best DRIFT tracks. Yet one of these integral layers have been removed. It hurts to know that the definitive version of this track has ended for the worse, in that itís much more monotonous. I guess thatís the beauty of DRIFTó right?

Where is the piano? In which version? I can't hear it on the film version and on the EP version.

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
Compare 0:46 on the single (video film edit) and GAME versions. The former starts with a piano chord that continues for practically the rest of the track, whereas the latter doesnít include it at all. Side by side, itís pretty jarring.

Oh yeah! I hadn't noticed initially but it's now missing the jazzy keyboard bits all the way through... wonder why they took it off?? I guess at least still have the other version available as a 'single' track...

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
yeah - calling it the 'piano' confused me. I hear what you're talking about now

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
I agree the video version is much stronger. How weird.

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
the good news the tracks are otherwise identical so you can easily just swap 'em out

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
My bad for the confusion, but yeah I had to swap it out once I noticed. The change left me dumbfounded, thinking ďwhen will the keyboard come in???Ē only to realise it wouldnít...

Regardless of this unfortunate change, Iíve found episode 5 to be the most odd one yet. Toluca Stars is growing on me still (itís one of the first that hasnít clicked with me immediately), Mile Bush Pride is very sleek and OwB-esque but as the weekly release it seems oddly short. Imagine a Box is amazing in my opinionó I donít think Underworld have really made anything like it. The psychedelic sounds clash with Karlís dissonant vocals to create a very intriguing contrast between the two. Itís peculiar but mesmerising. Iím wondering how itíll be reimagined for the sampler. Tree and Two Chairs is sadly barebones in its ďdefinitiveĒ form but the original holds up as one of the most creative DRIFT works. The lounge influence may be cheesy to some, sure, but listen to it on high quality headphones and the subtle interplaying with every layer requires further notice. Itís brilliant. Give Me the Room is techno by the numbers, not so sure about it yetó and S T A R. S T A R! Karlís spoken word doesnít get any better than that. Itís satisfyingly short, addictive and has high replay value.

I eagerly look forward to the box set and maybe there might even be some more changes with the definitive versions on there (Iím looking at you, Tree and Two Chairs!).

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
Digital purchase and streaming versions of Ep 5 came out yesterday, and it's identical to the free download last week.

So, to recap:

Toluca Stars and Tree and Two Chairs with the missing piano parts are available to stream or purchase (up to 24-bit lossless) in the digital single versions.

The long version of Mile Bush Pride is available (in 320 Kbps MP3) as the free download.

Give Me the Room with the wonky stereo imaging, and S T A R with the last verse aligned to the downbeat are only available on the YouTube videos.
