Funk and Filth Hall of Fame - Filth #20 - Stanton Warriors
They. Are. The Warriors. You can hear a Stanton Warriors tune being mixed in within half a bar - such is the sound they have defined.
Duo Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley have progressed from their early works like 'Da Virus' to transmogrify over the last decade into one of the UK's finest exports, playing worldwide, and remixing monsters from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, Gorillaz, Claude Von Stroke, The Eurythmics and the Chemical Brothers. Not a bad collection! But it is their reworking of the Beachboys classic 'Good Vibrations' that will always be my lasting memory of the Warriors - not least because I have recollections of filling my hand with broken glass the first time I heard them drop it at Matter, in what can only be described as a 'floor-slapping injury'. It's a massive tune, in fact I've heard others describe it as 'beastly'! Download it for free from the list of downloads below, and make sure you pipe it through some speakers big enough to do it justice!
