The 1967, stone-cold rocksteady classic from Keith & Tex (written by Derrick Harriot), given the 2015 treatment by Dreadzone’s Earl Sixteen. It’s all there: the smooth, rolling and ultimately sexy rubadub riddim in a digi stylee, with Earl doing a sterling effort matching the sultry and soulful vocals of the original.
Slow industrial/EBM themes on this new EP from Her Majesty’s Ship. Highlights are the vocal and dub mixes from Phantasy’s Nadia Kasaba.
While LTN’s original situated itself more on the more sugary trance spectrum, this rework from Vintage & Morelli swaps out the big melodic hooks for a more stripped-back drive, a pulsing tech house bassline and a smooth, glossy sheen of melody this time around, with it all dropping away for a proper progressive trance breakdown. Cleverly balanced in its appeal.
Creeping in and out of earshot in a flash over a year ago (initially appearing on the duo’s SoundCloud page for an instant) was this Psychemagik remix of the French chanteuse’s ultimate Balearic moment, ‘Au Pays Des Merveilles De Juliet’. Now it gets a full release on Leng, and Yves Simon’s two-½ minute original is stretched into a dreamy, seven-minute trip. Gorgeous stuff.
