Following the success of Joey Negro’s ‘Produced With Love’ album, four of the album cuts get the remix treatment from an all-star cast of producers each with their own particular flavor.
Kicking it off Chicago legend Ron Trent takes the original funked out, Arthur Russell flavoured, ‘Distorting Space Time’ and turns it into a deep house groover complete with a strong walking bass alongside adding a soul & richness to the elements that only he knows how. Crackazat step up next to take on ‘Lactican Boogie’ crafting it into an uptempo piano driven, emotionally charged stomper sure to do some damage this summer.
Flip it over and Lay-Far delve into ‘In Search of The Dream’, adding squelchy synth stabs and a deep bass to give a more hard hitting edge to the track whilst retaining that disco flavor with Angela Johnson’s emotive vocals.
Closing out the e.p. Fouk come full circle, bringing their hazy, jazz tinged style to ‘Distorting Space Time’ — building the remix around those warm Rhodes chords, shuffling rhythm and dynamic bassline.
Gold once again from the Z Records camp!
