Nemi's Pick (First Post!)

Hello friends! My name is Nemi and I am a DJ, musician working with Basscadet (Blay). I'm somewhat spontaneous when it comes to song selections, so expect my updates to appear sporadically.

That being said...

So I was cleaning out my inbox the other day and I stumbled across an invitation from one of my soundcloud links to download this FREE song by FireFarm. The track is called "No Good Start the Jericho" and it turns out that this is a cover medley of "Jericho" and "No Good Start the Dance" by The Prodigy. Now I know what you're probably thinking: "nobody can perform these tracks as well as The Prodigy!" In which case, if comparing the two side by side, you're probably right. However, I think that for what this song is, I would say this is a notable attempt. As a remix, I say this is top notch!

For those of you (like myself) who appreciate driving synth melodies and a grungy drum and bass undertow, I highly suggest giving this song a listen. The voice sampling is also ideal for building hype and getting folks up on their feet.

DJ tips: I would throw this song in as an intro for a jungle, dubstep, or drum and bass set, or perhaps just to simmer down the power of one before smacking folks again with the amazing build. This song is also good if you're looking for a motif to bring in and out as your set progresses. Perhaps instill a sense of nostalgia? Towards the end of the track, the stylings become more modern dubstep friendly. So it wouldn't be a bad idea to use that as a segway to a good ole' session of "wub wubs" either. (Yeah I said it!) Either way you choose to wield this ferocious weapon, be sure to let it play out and try not to mix in to early. This song has more than enough energy to stand on its own.

Well...there you go!
