187 LockdownIt's speed garage season so I guess it doesn't surprise me that so many artists are going for the sound. 187 Lockdown joins the S.G. club with "Gunman". It's a hypnotic beat, sexy and funky. Vocals are limited and used to accent rather than for emotion. The "Nu Birth" remix (my fave) goes into a jazz twist with synth sax and piano - still maintaining a chill to be true to the genre. Stays incredibly close to being cheese without insulting you. The Natural Born Chillers lend a hand in remixing the single, indulging within the familiar drum & bass camp. 187 Lockdown covers all credible bases and does it well.
