The first of two remixes to surface from myself in the not too distant future comes in the form of this Random Soul release.It seemed like forever since I actually got around to finishing anything in the studio, and I am very happy with the result. Click here for a video created by the guys for the release on their own imprint (the embed doesn’t seem to want to work.)
More info to follow shortly on the next release for Sounds of the Booth.
Random Soul return with another vocal with Kristen Pearson, remixed by none other than Andy Ward
The original mixes of Take Your Time incorporate hypnotic strings, spacey synth’s and a deep dub bass that chugs along with Kristen’s big vocal harmonies. Taking it back to the old school with some funk laden ‘classic’ mixes, the RS lads have kept true to their soulful roots with a live bass phenomenon and paddy rhodes whilst keeping the beats jacked up. This one’s ripe for the dance floor with the dub mix stripping it back again and rocking a more cut up vocal hook. Yogi & Husky also flex their main room muscle with a filtered piano mix that whip’s up the energy for the more late night peak set.
Andy Ward needs little introduction for any house music lover. However, for those who have been living under a rock, he is 1/2 of Soul Central, the duo responsible for the dance music anthem’s known as String’s Of Life, Time After Time and In-Ten-City. Andy gives us nothing but soul on his remixes, using classic rhodes and taking you on a vocal journey. It’s timeless music here as always from Andy, so don’t sleep on having these gems in your box!
Rounding out the EP the boys have a jacked up party track called That’s Right, Get Funky. Like its name, it is by nature FUNKY with live bass, up front chords and cheeky vocal cuts, this track has it all for the party rockers. Who said funky shit was dead.. alive and shaking here, that’s right, we be getting funky !
