Originally released in 2001 under his sporadic Gypsymen alias, Terry's Cuban heel kicking jack-fest "Camarera" gets the funky treatment from rising Swiss players Palace & Double Project. It's an interesting reversion; where the original really slammed the rustic horn and accordion hook home, these cats tone it right down and add a rather sumptuous rolling bassline the process. A fine example of a remix. And one that should direct people to the brilliance of Todd's lesser known work. Ace.
It seems Iban Reus has a knack for revisiting classics and rebooting them with respect and creativity. Last year he gave us an INXS remake and now he's turned his hand to Todd Terry. Remixing a classic like "Jumpin" is no mean feat; with its bold piano hammers and brash cut-up string stabs, it's difficult to match Tezza's original. With a chugging percussive groove and focused mainroom feel, Iban's mastered the balance with ease and crafty-groove building skill. Very tasteful.
