16B "Doubt (Disc One)"

Out Now on Hooj Choons

Omid Nourizadeh returns with the latest single from his 16B album 'How To Live 100 Years', entitled 'Doubt', which those of you who have heard the album will recall as one of the standout tracks on the album, featuring Stephan's emotive vocals. As always Hooj have split the release over two discs, comissioning some mixes in the process. More on that later, as for now we'll focus on this original 12".

Headed up by the superb 'Original Mix' by Omid himself, and as I have said previously, it's one of those tracks you may hear at your favourite pre club bar, with good company and good vibes being complimented by it's soulful vocals and warm beats, and my opinion of the track has not changed one bit. Superb and sublime, with a vocal that will stick in your mind.

The duo of Martin Cartledge and Tim Cartwright have been on form as Flatline as of late, with remixes of artists as diverse as Terminalhead and Dirty Vegas all receiving huge support. Here they add their own unique twist to 'Doubt' via their 'Viva La Revolution Mix'. Techy synths and beats drill into a funky forward thinking bassline that just slams through the speakers, kicking butt and asking names later. Another fine mix from this underrated duo.

This disc on it's own is worthy of a purchase, with the Original standing out like a beacon as a splendid showcase of production excellence. I suggest you give this a listen and judge for yourself, and to watch out for a further disc of remixes soon.
