shackleton vs ricardo villalobos - Blood On My Hands (Ricardo Villalobos' Apocalypso Now Mix)
Back in stock! You've probably read us and a heap of blogs and forums banging on about this for months now, but it's finally here, Villalobos epic revision of Shackleton's 'Blood on My hands' classic refracted through an MDMA crystal into 18 minutes of tripping minimal techno genius similar in scope to his Fizheuer Ziheuer rhythm, but a hell of a lot darker. The source material was always ripe for versioning, with a massively disparate selection of top name DJs from Panorama bar's Cassy to Radio 1's Rob Da Bank mixing the track up with house and r'n'b alongside dubstep standards to exemplify the riddimic possibilites of such a classsic, astonishing track. German/Chillean maestro Ricardo Villalobos would likely come up as one of the most obvious candidates to remix such a signature tune with skill, depth and a dancefloor panache to satisfy even the most demanding European dancefloor, full of pouting/gurning ravers escaping to the land of aerobic mysticism. Villalobos dissects the original with great care and due attention, gracefully laying the morose melody and vocal samples over a sturdy mesh of loping 4/4 rhythms intertwining themselves with blissed abandonment and loose limbed structures, with more than a hint lying in the 'Apocalypso now' remix title. The real dancefloor tricks and Villalobos magic lie in the dubwise application of micro edited sounds allowed to bleed and reverberate around the rhythm making for a deliciously hypnotic and disorientating effect once you've locked into the linear narrative of the 4/4 and the fella chatting about towers falling. Massive 12", totally essential, Hurry!
