[Audio] Eats Everything reMixes Disclosure & Mary J. Blige’s ‘F For You’

 

disclosure-mary-j-blige-f-for-you

Bristolian House powerhouse Eats Everything has delivered this deep and compelling reMix of the Mary J. Blige featuring version of Disclosure’s F For You. Appearing on the forthcoming single of the track, Eats Everything reMix takes the track into deep and hypnotic territories. The weekend really does start here.

At an epic seven minutes, Eats Everything’s reworking of F For You strips the track back to it’s bare essentials. Even Mary J. Blige’s vocals are minimalized to the point of being just another inurement as Bristol’s biggest House export right now slowly builds up an irresistible groove of shuffling beats and Chicago stabs. Stick around of the bizarrely gentle piano breakdown to mix things up a little before the tune crashed back into dancefloor euphoria.

[Audio] Maya Jane Coles reMixes Bonobo’s ‘First Fires’

 

Bonobo

The latest slice of all-encompassing musical warmth coming from the queen of all things Deep and Techy, Maya Jane Coles, comes in the form of this reMix of Ninja Tune’s finest Bonobo’s, Grey Reverend featuring, First Fires. The ghostly and bassy original comes from Bonobo’s recent The North Borders album. The track serves as the album’s intro and takes on a whole new life in Coles’ hands.

The vocal croon of the song is actually quite well suited to Coles’ smokey take on House, it’s low tones acting as another instrument in MJC’s deep arsenal. Capturing the intensity and atmosphere of First Fires, Maya looses none of it’s emotional resonance, if anything she adds to the tracks mood with a plethora of warm, rounded synths and grumbling basses. All set to a nice shuffling UK House beat. Sink into this one.

[Audio] Kosheen’s ‘Harder They Fall’

 

Kosheen

Of the many many thing to be proud about the city of Bristol, near the top sits Kosheen. ElectroPop, Drum & Bass, Electro, Breakbeat, Trip-Hop chameleons, Kosheen have left a stunning back catalogue behind them over the last fifteen years with Sian, Mark and Darren consistently delivering quality, intelligent Dance music with soul. Cue their forthcoming fifth studio album, Solitude, and it’s lead single, Harder They Fall. Released at the end of November, Harder They Fall comes equipped with three storming reMixes, have a listen to the Radio Edit and one of the mixes right now.

Harder They Fall is both dark & haunting and a post-Rave, UK House floorfiller. It’s like Kosheen of old, driven by Sian’s smokey vocals, with a twist that would see them fitting in perfectly in summer 2013 clubland. Musically, the track is a selection of tough beats, thought House basslines and tough leads, all tempered by silky smooth production and morphed into a noir Pop song by Sian’s croon. Most of the reMixes come straight out of the Kosheen camp. Well, if you’ve got that many alter egos, why not?  Mark and Darren in their guise as Kosheen DJs deliver a rugged UK House track the loads itself with abrasive riffs swirling, spacious, synth growls but overall eschews a gritty sound in favour of  bringing a hypnotic tone to the track. The alter-ego that first brought Mark and Darren to our attention, that of Drum & Bass legends Decoder & Substance lend the single a distorted, bass heavy, Dubby vibe, with hints of Experimental and Industrial leanings. Their reMix draws you in with it’s relentless cloud of noise, pulsating synths and hammered purcussion. We would kinda’ say that Harder They Fall is a return to form for Kosheen, but honestly, they have never wavered from excellence. It is, however, an awesome single.

[Audio] Maya Jane Coles’ ‘No Stick’

 

Maya Jane Coles

No Stick is a bran new track from Maya Jane Coles that features on the Burning Bright (with Hercules And Love Affair’s Kim Ann Foxman) remix single released late last month. Burning Bright is one of our tunes of the year, but if you needed any more convicting to go out and grab yourself a copy, check out No Stick.

This is the perfect compliment to Maya’s amazing Comfort album, No Stick is no mere B-side. This is a deep, hypnotic, funky-as-hell dancefloor destroyer. Rumbling sine basslines, shuffling House beats and a sledgehammer vocal sample all join forces to deliver a slightly Dub influenced mesmerizing tune that you could really loose yourself in on the dancefloor.
