Future Cut - "Whiplash (Alix Perez Bootleg)"

While I absolutely HATE missing out on tunes, I have to thank dope DJs for bringing me up to speed.

Apparently, Alix Perez decided to give away his bootleg of one of my favorite dnb tunes of all time, Future Cut's "Whiplash," over the holidays. This has been doing the rounds for a bit (I want to say many first heard this in Om Unit's FACT mix, making me wonder if Alix took the lead from Om Unit's rework of anothe rdnb classic, Nasty Habits' "Shadow Boxing," when it came to this refix), and it looks like it's finally here (although the SoundCloud download is gone, some kind soul has re-uppped the .WAV to Dropbox). Hearing it in Rockwell's smashing new Essential Mix made me hunt for it, and my mind was blown.

There's something about those depressing piano notes being thrown over that bouncy, halftime rhythm. I'm done. It's this, the new Kanye, and select cuts from Future's Purple Reign for me today. Keep an eye out for more Alix Perez in 2016, trust we.
