Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
The "push" bits are a solid example of latter day Underworld overusing Karl's voice, IMO. It's just noise there, but it's pushed to the front of the mix and unjustly takes all the attention. "Low Burn" is another example of this, and it's one of the songs UW themselves compare "Schiphol Test" to.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
It feels like a more upbeat Brussels. Which is a good thing; Brussels is one of my favorite tracks from Drift.

The vocoder effect they use reminds me of the one on Faxed Invitation.

He sings a bit of "Who Rings the Bell" on this one right? or maybe I'm hearing things
The Eno • Hyde song? Where? I didn't hear it.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
agreed with khouri about questionable front-facing choices, but it's a nice track. feels a lot like other drift tracks after EP 1 though, where i'm not sure if this is really a finished product? all the parts seem right, but it's a bit leaden and "push" is just a really awkward way to anchor things here. it feels like it's not an album cut when it really should be after cracking a few problems with it.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
Is this bassline a riff off the KoS/I feel love melody? At the 3 minute mark it's almost solo so it's a good marker to compare.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
On first listen, been driving my bike to the station. Perfect for that. Love the energy, the baseline makes my head jump.
Really can’t follow the complaints / dislikes of Karl’s voices. It sure is mixed into the foreground, but to me with great effect.
I’ve ever seen Karl’s voice as an instrument, not a front man / singer. With that it works well

And I wanna know who’s been playing violin. If that was one.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
Like this on first listen. Really enjoying the process of the Drift series.


I'm expecting the final few tracks chosen for the album will be reworked a bit, like these are all 90% works in progress. Either way, loads I like in the series whether they change or not.

Yes, me, too. There are some fully formed tracks that seem album-ready. Others could (should?) Be reworked for maximum impact. Ultimately, it's up to Rick and Karl as to what's finished.

This track is a good analogy to "Always loved a film". That song evolved and evolved. The LP version is not my favorite, but I can follow it's evolution, and I still have access to the various stages. Should Schiphol appear as is, great, it's fine track, although the callbacks to Most 'Ospitable and Push Upstairs are clear. My hope is that it gets a bit of a work over to lessen the comparisons.

Re: Drift Ep. 4, Part 2 - Schiphol Test
Ok, how much of a call-back is this track? Could it be used as a new lead-in/live mix with Push Upstairs?

i give you "Underworld: Push Schiphol Most 'Ospitable mashup"
https://archive.org/details/Underwor...spitableMHCMix

Push Upstairs (the Large Unit mix) + Schiphol Test + Most 'Ospitable

I spent maybe 20 minutes, just beatmatching, a little pitch-shifting and deciding where to merge the tracks. Certainly not very polished, but i like how Schiphol Test compliments the older tracks. There's a lot of pushing going on.

Moving on!
