Seven months on from the release of their fine debut album, Be Nice To Each Other (a title that seems more apt with every passing day), Paper Recordings stalwarts 2 Billion Beats are given the remix treatment. Richard Seaborne ropes in pal GizMo to lend a hand on his rework of "Papa", a thrillingly driving, low-slung affair built around live disco bass, glistening organ stabs and rolling percussion, while Brighton's Leon Sweet casually joins the dots between rolling nu-disco and melodious deep house on his interpretation of "Slow Down". Arguably best of all, though, is Magnus International's rework of 2011 single "To Andromeda", which sees the Oslo producer pepper a loose limbed jazz breakbeat with typically woozy, Scandolearic chords and tasty analogue synthesizer melodies.
Here we get taken all the way to Miami (musically at least) by the Hot Cakes crew, courtesy of 601 vs Deep Impact. "Going Out" is pure Miami bass attack - all laser ghetto beats and electro snap. The addition of trancey synth riffs only adds to the good vibes. Back up track "Raggamuffin" meanwhile, is tough big breaks and a fatneck wobble bass attack. Throw in some 4 x 4 thump and you're quids in!
