10/02/2021: “Champion Sound (Total Science Hardcore Will Never Die Remix) by Q Project

This is one of the anthems of the Drum & Bass scene. Rightly so, too. It’s a belter of a tune!

The original 1993 hardcore song is okay. The remix, however, takes the paranoid atmosphere of the original and adds a tidal wave of energy and flow – just like it should!

One tiny touch which always stands out to me is the up-down step of the hi-hats once the song launches properly at about 3:30. Just one of the elements which contribute to a brilliant experience…

The iconic trumpet samples still blare out restlessly, but the remix adds a harder, crunchy layer – like replacing cornflakes with special k.

This one saw the light of day in 2004, backed with a Doc Scott remix of the same track.
