If Del Strange has a fetish, it's one for the dancefloor sound of early 80s New York. Considering it was such an inspiring sound and era, it's certainly a case of who can blame him? "Freak Yeah!" is an out of control electro-boogie jam, like mid-80s Cameo wrestling with Paul Hardcastle over one of those wiggly key-tar things. Of the three remixes supplied, we reckon it's all about the deep 'n' low Freekwency rework or, depending on your mood, the blistering Divine let loose in a bathhouse abandon of Heather Wilson's hi-NRG mix.
In his previous outings for In The Woods and Bust A Dub, Joseph Terruel has proved adept at blending atmospheric, slo-mo house grooves with hazy disco samples and touchy-feely melodies. On this latest release for new label Fruit of Life, he ups the tempo, resulting in a jaunty, atmospheric groover that bristles with cut-glass strings, dreamy vocal samples and jazzy guitars. It's a rather delicious concoction, all told. Remix-wise, there's a plethora of reworks to choose from. There's some filter-heavy deep disco-house from Sonicvibe, a bubbly nu-disco dub from Eddie Hu and a delightful slo-mo "Dubstramental" from Terruel himself.
