We’ve Only Just Begun follows along in the current trend of an artist’s previously released track having vocals slapped over it and made into a more mainstream-friendly offering. I have no problem with that at all, but I feel like its a bit lazy of an artist to just take their old piece of music, make a few slight modifications to it, and then offer it up with a different name for people to purchase.
But, back to the music: WOJB (much easier to type than the full name), comes with an Extended Mix featuring Ester Dean’s vocals, a remix including R3hab and lesser known producer ZROQ, an incredible Drum & Bass remix of the original, and an instrumental mix.
The track behind Dean’s vocals is No Access which Woods has made a few slight adjustments to. I know I ripped on it earlier for being a re-hashing of the same track, but No Access is one of my favorite progressive tunes and has one of the best drops of all time in my opinion. Dean’s vocals don’t add all too much, but are a nice addition and give the track a bit more flavor.
R3hab and ZROQ’s remix is another progressive banger however was a bit disappointing for me as it didn’t really show very much of R3hab’s unique style. Still a great track with a bit more of a single-lead melody that adds a nice touch.
The D&B remix by Calyx & TeeBee however is the shining track of the release. It is so incredibly well produced, catchy, and carries a lot of emotion and energy to it. If you get any of the tracks for this release, make sure this one is your first.
And finally, the Instrumental Mix is No Access. If you already have No Access, don’t bother with this one.
