This version of “Half the Battle” is the CD format of the previous vinyl release of the same name. Except this version it has nine bonus remixes! The CD is basically 3 original tracks by Machine Drum made after Now You Know but before Urban Biology. These tracks hover around the aggressive cutup idm/hiphop style Machine Drum is known for. The other 12 tracks are remixes by various merck artists, ranging from the same aggressive style, to much chiller downtempo, even dark tracks. In brief, Proem returns to the kungfu cutup of Thanks Very Much, Brothomstates puts on a ripping anthem that blew the crowd up at Sonar and Phoenix, Ilkae comes through with a nice mellow bumpiness to round things off, and many more soon to be classic tracks inhabit this cd.
Remixers include: Proem, Brothomstates, Ilkae, Proswell, Lackluster, Xela, TStewart, Secede, Vim, Esem, Tim Koch, and Syndrone. Ltd 2000
