Soundsystem (Mix CD)
Take It Back is the latest single to be taken from The Qemists' sophomore album Spirit In The System, and sees the Brighton-based trio join forces with fellow dance/rock music hybridisers Enter Shikari, with cataclysmic results.
The end of 2010 maintained momentum for both bands, with Enter Shikari going straight to Number One in the UK rock charts with their single "Destablize", while the VIP Mix of The Qemists’ "Renegade" was battered by many of the world’s primary dubstep DJs.
After The Qemists supported Enter Shikari on their 2009 European tour, the union of the two bands in the studio was a natural development, with both sharing a vision of fusing bass-heavy dance music with rock. Take It Back is the result of their first collaboration.
Previous Qemists singles have seen heavy support from everyone from Chase & Status, Pendulum, Rusko and Plastician to Laurent Garnier, Basement Jaxx and Mike Patton, and Take It Back will surely follow that impressive trend.
With the backing of a remix from current D&B darlings The Prototypes, alongside a VIP version of "Take It Back" and dubstep floor-slayer "Dirty Words", The Qemists are kicking of 2011 with frightening intent ahead off a world-wide tour that will take the trio’s unique sound everywhere from Japan to Finland, Eastern Europe and, of course, the UK.
