The Eyes Never Lie/Downplay
"Following on from his success in 2009 with Insanity on Chase & Status' label and his anthemic Mind Control for Off Road, 501 fires off his first bullets of 2010. 'The Eyes Never Lie' opens with high-tension strings and taut drums that set you up for one almighty drop - a Triple- Changer Transformer bassline, first searing midrange, then sick wobbles, then yawning grumble-bass. 501 even hooked up a heart monitor to check you're still alive! 'Downplay' on the flip is even more direct, growling metallic bass and synth-tech action snarling away over tuff breaks, interlaced with pounding 808s and offbeat cowbells."
