TO THE BEAT: DJ LAZ - Red Alert 3000 (Spacemen LIVE! Rework)

Oh are we excited to post this one for ya'll!

Back in 1996 one of Miami's purveyor's of Bass Music released this ridiculously massive track that took the underground by storm. Red Alert taken off his Journey Into Bass LP was filled with thumping bass, and a melody that just made you release your body and got you in the groove. This track became a str8 up Miami classic, and the album is listed in the Top 20 that have defined my life so far.

Spacemen, the infamous FL masked men decided to take it upon themselves to spruce up the track with just a splash of their own sound that we have also come to love since the late 90's. Tearing up dance floors across the states, we've gotten some seriously amazing Breakbeat tracks from Spacemen, or Spacemen LIVE!, or Trip Theory, or Subliminal. Yea, they're some talented mofo's!

What we have here folks is a downright nasty rework showing that even 14 years or so later this track is and always will be the business. Thank you creatures from outer space for blessing the dance floor with your take on this classic. Make sure to check out their Soundcloud page for some dope ass beats. Even in 2010 Spacemen LIVE! still bring the heat!

As for DJ Laz, well we can only hope that he will eventually ditch Pitbull and get back to his roots. We're rooting for ya "pimp with da limp"!

....In the unlikely event that that 18's in your seat blow, check out this Miamitastic vid from the lead track off that wonderful DJ Laz album!
