Ancients (Skeptical Remix) / Cylon Theme
Loxy & Isotone / Loxy & Skeptical

Cylon boss Loxy and man of the moment Skeptical join forces to turn in this rallying cry for the seminal imprint. "Cylon Theme"epitomizes the brooding space dub championed in Loxy's influential DJ sets for years. Eerie sounds and distant choir chamber vocals build into metallic high hats and speaker pummeling kicks before giving way to the essential Battle Star Galactica Cylon samples. The full percussive riddim drops back in with an armor piecing reverberated rim shot and a ten ton Aba Shanti bass line. The track twists and turns with loose break fills, dub effects and dog barks keeping the head down warrior charge moving throughout. Lethal.
On the flip, Skeptical brings his razor sharp touch to Loxy and Isotone's "Ancients". Skeptical utilizes seemingly all his now trademark drum work expertise to masterfully craft one unified rhythmic drum bed out of a huge pallet of percussive elements. Stomping half step kicks, Natty Congas, reverberated wood blocks, reversed samurai swords, and chopped sections of the Ice Age break mold together with Photek like precision. If Skeptical's clinical approach to the beats on this track nods to late 90's Rupert Parkes, his bass line influence is gazed firmly upon the Water House Dub of Digital's output from the same period.
Loxy's keen ear for the future sounds of Drum & Bass, fueled by Skeptical's limitless production chops reminds D&B heads the world over that the imprint with the robot head as its logo is back to the business of leading the way forward for the whole scene.
