The Qemists - 'Your Revolution'
Posted on 18/11/2010
After the storming success of their debut album 'Join The Q' last year The Qemists are back with another gargantuan slice of full-throttled bass-heavy dance music that, along with a monster remix from Reso, looks set to cause dance floor frenzies all over the world. Taken as the first single from their follow-up LP due later this year, it serves as the perfect taster of what's to come.
'Your Revolution' intros in a major way with glorious sweeping strings before guitar power-chords smack out of the speakers along with precise kicks and loaded bass guitar giving a thoroughly live feeling to this one augmented with the vocals of Matt Rose; The Qemists are after all a band. Then in drops a snarling mid-range synth riff over building percussion and after a rather large kick-snare roll we're away on a romper-stomper ride of big beats and bone-crunching b-lines that'll have you moshing in no time!
It's then left up to Reso to turn in the remix - opening with the lone "keep your revolution" vocal over some skipping breaks and the familiar riff it isn't long before it drops into an absolutely heinous half-time roll-out complete with warning sirens and smashing FX. The breakdown follows and then a switch into a full blown D&B assault on the senses that fans of Noisia and the like will lap up with its sickening bass and edits.
