Russian Disco master Sohight’s On The Fruit Records single Fonk is release this week, and whist we’ve been really digging the track, we’ve also been keen to hear the Earl Grey reMix, so now we can. Earl Grey is, of course, Danny Ashenden, better know as one half of The C90s, here with his third solo track. It doesn’t disappoint.
Ashenden delivers a squelchy, vintage Disco track. Equal parts Cosmic and Deep, the track rides on a low-down, but bouncy, synth bass, slightly Italo in it’s pattern, which weaves in an out of spacey stabs and echoes, snatches of the vocal and big lush strings. The reMix even keeps some of the scratching from he original in there, but echoes them out to almost Dub-like effect. All this Disco business is topped off with a twisted lead line that is so infectious you won’t be able to resist it. It’s a great start for Earl Grey, definitely a name to keep an eye, or ear, on.
