The RV Cock remix of Dirty Jesus? gloriously and unimprovably titled house track "Don't Fuck With My Shit" starts with the kind of percussion so indebted to Harvey?s life in Hawaiian/LA paradise that it all but dons a loud shirt and offers you a cocktail. Thankfully this is soon overshadowed by something altogether more menacing, as dark, slow, spacey synths come to the fore. By the time the ethereal vocals and horns come in, Harvey has lulled you into a druggy stupor - and of course this is exactly where he wants you - before he drags you out of it with one final bass drop that is sure to tear the roof off after-parties from London to Honolulu.
With Juno Records hitting its tenth release we revisit another classic from the archives of electronic music royalty. Producer, label boss, DJ & remixer extraordinaire, Charles Webster will need no introduction to house music lovers, and it's his 1998 collaboration with renowned UK vocalist Shara Nelson which gets a 2010 touch up. Originally out on the seminal label Pagan, "Sense of Danger" was a real deep house anthem back in '98, so it was imperative to leave it in good hands for the remix duties. And Popular People's Front, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Calibre and Jonno & Tommo all fall into that category. Mysterious disco collective PPF and Stuttgart native MCDE go deep on their mixes, both turning in two killer reworks each. Calibre plumps for a sun-soaked laid back D&B vibe, while Jonno & Tommo keep the pads warm and vocals sleazy. Oh, and there's even the original '98 version in there for good measure!
