We’re making the 2nd and 3rd place winners of our last remix competition available to you as a free download. While you’re there check out the new Retrospective Remixes.
“Great to hear these jems again” Crystal Method
“I always liked a bit of Tribal Tension” Plump DJs
“Classics everybody should own and now they sound like brand new releases again!”
A retrospective look at some of Lee Coombs and Thrusts finest moments from as far back as 1997, including the underground Breaks Classic Thrust 1 (the 1st Thrust release). These are some of the tracks that have defined a generation of Tech Funk Clubbers and DJs alike and is also the reason Lee Coombs has gone on to consistently write groundbreaking artist albums and remix some of the biggest acts in the World. These tunes have been hammered with huge results in every great Club across the planet by the Residents who know and love their crowds along with the International Superstar DJ’s that drop in every week.
Not happy with the production techniques of yesterday Lee has painstakingly remixed; re mastered (by Uberzone) or made completely new versions of these Classic tracks making them sound as fresh as when they were first released. Thrust 1 and Thrust 2 have never been available as digital downloads and have been long since deleted as vinyl releases, also there is a brand new version of The Lee Coombs and The Drumattic Twins Remix of Thrust 1 which is currently blowing up Lee’s Dance Floors. Killer underground tunes from D Ramirez, Meat Katie and Paranoid Jack have all been re mastered and there are brand new and fully unreleased tracks by Oscar Goldman (of Thrust 2 fame) and Lee Coombs with the unreleased bomb Thrust 4.

We loved how there were so many different takes on Tribal Tension and we want to congratulate everyone of you for your amazing efforts! The winners were judged on a few different categories ranging from Production Technique, Use of the original parts, Mixdown, Does it fit on the label? etc…
Now for the Winners!

The use of the percussion is amazing in this mix, DJ Manaia really gave it energy.

This mix grooves beautifully, we love the simplicity and late night feel of it.

The legendary ‘Freakazoids’ return to the 808 to bring back their own slice of Electro Funk. ‘The Freakazoids’ is the Brainchild of Lee Coombs, Nick Slater and Lanx (later two both of Shades of Rhythm fame) who came together through their love of Old Skool Electro Funk and Hip Hop and released a string of underground records in the late Nineties. After a ten year break and working on other projects the boys have decided to collaborate again and bring back the Funk.
