Here, King Street Sounds offers up new remixes of two Blaze classics. First up, the Deepshakerz deliver their interpretation of "Spread Love", which originally appeared in 2005, and features vocals from house legend Byron Stingily. Their version is a lesson in building and releasing tension, with extended, spine-tingling breakdowns being followed by thrusting, club-ready house grooves. Drrtyhaze man Doug Gomez takes a different approach on his versions of 1999's "More Than Gold", expertly fusing Southern "swamp funk" and Osunlade style Afro-house. Choose between the full-throttle Deep South Merecumbe Remix, and the deliciously stripped back Deep South Acoustic Mix. Both naturally out Palmer Brown's gravel-throated, ragga-inspired vocal front and centre.
Spanish house producer Kiko Navarro dominates this remix collection of Blaze's "We Are One" with three killer versions. The "New Life" mix is pulsing and deep but with plenty of organic sounds over the top, and the stunning multi-layered vocal sitting perfectly over the top of it all. The 'Look Inside' dub is more straight up dancefloor, while the "Viva UR" mix brings in the warmth with some silky spine-tingling strings. The Shrine Horn goes back to the vocal though and adds a playful acid jazz vibe to the mix. Fans of funky house, look no further.
