Ten years since the original release, the seminal grime tune ‘Pulse X’ undergoes a series of refixes.
Heralded as the first grime track proper, the ten year anniversary of Youngstar‘s (pictured) track ‘Pulse X’ is to be marked by the release of 5 remixes.
Amongst the selected producers are Slackk, Pedro123, Blackwax and Visionist, the latter of whom’s version has particularly triumphed. With the infectiously punchy kick and snare remaining the defining feature of the track, the 92 Points frontman adds warped female vocal stabs into the mix which stand out against the track’s abrasive 808s.
The EP is to emerge as the debut release from Liminal Sounds who are to launch as a label following the success of their blog and club nights. The record was originally created in anticipation of Youngstar’s appearance at the Liminal Sounds Party back in April, so it is only right that their first release be a homage to his most celebrated work.

Pulse X Remixes is to be released on January 21, 2013 on Liminal Sounds.
