One of the most perfectly executed tracks i have ever heard, fucking perfection. That deep driving reese bass combined with the dreamy plucks and arpeggios, it doesnt really get better then this. Might have been the track that started the mcprog era

I think the entire album deserves the thread here. What an amazing piece of electronic music.

Airdrawndagger is one of the best artist albums in EDM history, imo - Love every single track on that damn disc, even got it on vinyl. Bloodlock is a testament as to how good it is

I... I... I don't actually like Airdrawndagger all that much. Blasphemy I know.

For me, Sasha has been one of the biggest influences. As I have mentioned couple of times, I was and am more into progressive side of things and Sasha's productions and mix compilations (all those Northern Exposures, Global Undergrounds and first two Involvers) to me showcases all the good things progressive can be. Sasha at his (long) peak was just massive and he truly is one of the greatest. But Airdrawndagger, I never got into it. And believe me I have tried. The last effort was not actually too long time ago. It has good tracks and I absolutely adore Wavy Gravy, but on the personal level I don't hold it in that high regard as many others seems to.

Bloodlock is produced superbly and there are for sure great ingredients in this track. For me, it is just almost there.

I always thought sasha is over-rated the only the reason why this track sounds good it's because James Holden co-produced. Overrated dj and producer John Digweed was much better.

The only part that annoys me is the gated synth and you failed to credit James Holden for this track.
