Knife Party, Swedish House Mafia, Antidote
On Friday night i tuned into Annie Mac's Radio One show, as i heard rumour that she had been given the honour of having first spin of the full vocal version of Swedish House Mafia Vs Knife Party 'Antidote'...

Knife Party recorded the play, and uploaded it to their soundcloud:

Soundcloud users reaction has been mixed.
For the first 2 mins it's pretty much all positive...

"fuck yes sir."
"This track is a bomb! "
"Woah this track is crazy! Knife party are suuch a huge influence on my music making"
"wow..this is sick man"

Then the vocal kicks in and feedback goes rapidly downhill...

"Cheesy vocals just killed this song"
"The vocals killed this song for me..."
"U really got to say to the Swedish house ppl to get those cheap vocals away!! Or at least give us an instrumental version cuz its really sick!:)"

What do i think?..
I’m a huge Knife Party fan. First hearing them at Space, Ibiza & more recently going to see them at Warehouse Project in Manchester.
I like Knife party because they are edgy, and have already established a recognisable sound.
The first 2 minutes of this track is signature Knife Party, and i absolutely love it.

The problem i have is that i do not like Swedish House Mafia; and the vocal that kicks in after 2 mins is signature SHM. It’s cheesy, pop, Will.I.Am/ Guetta influenced dross, & unfortunately it ruins the edginess for me.

Sad times... I pray they release the instrumental...
