Lawrence and Andy from Inland Knights have served up a real ace in the form of "Control". It's a slow building funky-tech bomb that starts with a clap-happy old school beat which soon gets joined by classic house bass, itchy percussive stabs and an Adonis-style acid vocal. On a more classically funky tip, Trimside label-boss Leif spruces up the mix with some canny filtering and a more Braxe/Falke bassline, while Kamo slows things down a little for a spanking house-meets-future soul treatment that shines thanks to its forward thinking production tricks.
Does anyone actually have a Trendy Mullet these days? Hairstyles may have moved on since the label of the same name first appeared in the late noughties, but the imprint continues to impress. This Kamo remix package features a particularly strong rework from Tom Ellis, who turns "Shoot Your Shot" into a typically atmospheric, organic deep house groover full of vintage synths and rubbery, lo-fi electric bass. What really makes the mix so appetizing is Ellis's knack of giving each element breathing space. Elsewhere, label regulars EZLV provide two slick and shiny remixes, whilst Halls Of Classic offers up an icy fusion of deep house and Scandinavian nu-disco on his version of "Set The Routine".
