Lex LEX054CD: 10th September 2007
1. The Beat That My Heart Skipped (Original / Jel Remix / Yila’s Post Traumatic Soul Remix)
“Every now and then I cower, and I need to find empowerment, empowerment is paramount, to how I can begin to mount, a plan that I can implement, to make a dent on ignorance, instead of drunk belligerence, dissidence and miscreants”
The new single from Scroob and Dan Le Sac is a delirious mix of sliced-and-diced acoustic Guitars, crunching Synths and monks chanting. Scroobius Pip’s vocal is so relentless that it’ll take a few listens to even discern the meaning, never mind notice all of his lyrical gynastics. The two remixes on the B-side are also fantastic. Jel’s version is a mix of swirling Electronics and grinding Industrial Metal. Yila’s ‘Post Traumatic Soul Remix’ sounds like the soundtrack to ‘Nine Inch Nails: The Arcade Game’ (If there was such a thing).
