Nine Lives’ ‘1985’ reMixes

Jaki Graham

Manchester’s Nine Lives recent Moog bassed Disco jam ‘1985’ is getting a sweet reMix package release, to be released next month on Vendition Records. Bringing together two of the hottest producers in Disco, one more Electro Boogie, one more full on ‘70’s. The original was a slick Funky tune that featured samples from Jaki Graham’s ‘Round And Round’, but the reMixes take it one step further.

First up is the awesome Justin Winks A.K.A. Casio Social Club who’s ‘Back To ‘82’ reMix is the definite standout of the collection. A deep boogie bassline and an old school breakin’ feel. With a bassline straight from an ‘80’s electronic Soul record this is exactly the kind of tune you’d see climbing the club charts in the back pages of  a 1986 issue of Record Mirror. Nostalgic and fresh, always the best combination. Sweden’s Drop Out Orchestra also make their mark on the track with their classy Disco. Loaded with 70’s strings and a bouncy bassline, this is the one for the mirrorball lit dancefloors. Oh, and cowbell, lots and lots of cowbell. Cowbell like a brain worm. Nine Lives himself adds to the line up with his ‘Cat Funk’ reMix, which pulls things back into a smooth, laid back place with thick, warm synths and heavy production. This new single hold a reMix for every mood, well worth checking out.
