Some reviews of the tune and remix;

Daniella Downs @

Llupa - Nightware - Nightware opens up with a nice tribal break and a muted groove that truly is a sign of things to come later in the tune. the slick techfunky groove at the first break immediately has my head bobbing, and is the epitome of groovy more organic techfunk (don't ask, just go with it). excellent percussion on this one, and at the 2nd big change, i'm sold. i would play the crap out of this. oddly enough, i recieved this a while back when he was trying to get it signed, and i'm glad that someone picked it up. great groovy number.

Llupa - Nightware (601 Remix) - Label heads, the 106 boys turn in a remix that is a little more techy and dark than i'd expect from them, and that works just fine with me. i like the moody vibe at the first build. the shaker is a great addition here. to be honest, i dont know how much i really like the drums on their remix. it sounds kinda muddled, and bunched together, but im sure i'm probably wrong. i think a more straight forward kick/snare pattern woulda worked on this one more. kicks aside though, i really like what they've done with the rest of the tune musically. the trippy feel is excellent and a half.

Llupa - Nightware - Nice deep intro on this tune. You can really tell from the Get go that this is gonna be a HEAVY tune! (I'm excited!) Proper Rolling B-line drops in before the beat and really adds to the Drop. Llupa is on Fiya with this tune, It has a great beat to it and the versatility is ACES! The breakdown has a cool hook'ish', eerie kinda pad to it that I like a lot The overall structure of this track is done very well and with the crowd cheering towards the 2nd break I find this to be a very proper raunchy tune fer sure! Nice stabby grooves and eerie pads keep this tune goin' in the second half. All in all this is a DOPE dancefloor tune that holds a nice place on the dark side.

Llupa - Nightware (601 RmX) - YET MORE DOPE TUNAGE FROM 601!! This One has the energy that any fan of 601 knows and loves. Solid roller of a drum beat takes you into a early Breakdown with a HEAVY Filtered B-line that creeps up on ya and Drops Ill Fists all over your FACE! Nice Staby synth work from these guys makes this a more peak hour ‘anthem’ spin on the tune. The 2nd break contains a very well done build up to a Stormer of a tune that is well deserving of a quick fist in the air from us all ( raise fist in air at this time......).

Jaurelio @ - if you speak Italian ;)

L'introduzione bongolata e tribale dell'original version di 'Nightware' subito ci prepara ai bassi poderosi ed al riff techy e funk, condensato in una prima elegante pausa attorno ai due minuti. L'incisione riparte e a 132 bpm lo svolgimento è poi ben fluido fino all'altra piú corposa e disegnata vuota sequenza, nell'alternanza studiatissima di cinematiche, scure atmosfere e ritmiche rotte. È davvero un manicaretto assai gustoso quello preparatoci da Llupa, aka Tom Herbert-Doyle, produttore elettronico che spesso incede al deep e al melodico, sempre supportando soniche e corpose frequenze. Non da meno i patron della Polar Red, i 601, nel remix, abili nell'intrecciare scansioni altrettanto dinamiche e scure, si dimostran capaci nell'articolare acidici fratturati inviluppi, irresistibili per la crowd catturata dal groove e sballottata ben bene sulla pista.
