Re: New UW song tomorrow: High Contrast ft TiŽsto & Underworld - The First Note Is Si
Only two minutes in, just reached the drop, but if that much is anything to go on I don't mind it as much as I expected.
My main concern is, much like Barking, that they're losing some of their own credibility as producers in this sudden wave of collaborations (though their ability certainly hasn't waned). I mean, Barking was basically an Underworld album like any other, inexplicably filtered through a bunch of other producers. It was hard to find a note on that album that didn't come from them (apart from the atrocity that was Scribbble), yet most reviews of the album chalked it up to them being lazy near (God forbid!) the end of their career and just sitting back to let Mark Knight and Paul Van Dyk do the dirty work. I doubt many people outside this little community heard the Underworld magic that lingered on Disc 2 of the box set (and even that was an incomplete picture!). It seems ridiculous to me that they would hide behind other producers like that when they haven't lost their touch. As I've said on numerous occasions (if not on here), Barking was the best remix album they ever did. Shame we never got to hear the album it was based on.

"Magic" is not the first word that springs to mind when i listen to a bunch of unmastered, unfinished demos....

Re: New UW song tomorrow: High Contrast ft TiŽsto & Underworld - The First Note Is Si
wait... I 'go away' for a little bit

and THIS is what I come back to?!?!??!?

I seriously cannot fathom Underworld having anything to do with Tiesto at all *shudder*

at least this doesn't seem very Tiesto-y at all... it really just seems like a High Contrast track.

I can't stand the intro - but it at least gets a little better as it moves forward

(BTW - I can't seem to be able to log into my original name... and even when I sent the 'forgot password' request... I never got one of those 'password reset' emails - and I tried doing it multiple times)

(yes, this is Blake aka "joethelion")

Liking this track a lot, can't hear the Tiesto element at all, I'd go on a limb and say I'd have taken this on Barking instead of Scribble and let the demo be worked into a version of You Do Scribble for another album.

*Avoids bricks*

No, I agree with you completely. Scribble was like watching my favorite song gutted in front of me; at least this song isn't a constant reminder of what could have been.

I've come to accept Scribble and I think it is okay (sometimes I like its total poppiness), but I really wish You Do Scribble was on their instead.

I wanted to "LIKE" this, but..... meh...

I"ll have to give it another listen.... but I don't know... BUT, I just finished my 2nd pint of Chimay, so perhaps another listen will change my mind... but it does sound too commercial and "POP" clubby to me...
