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.
Given their well discussed love of vintage U.S house and garage, it's little surprise to see Bicep taking on the potentially tricky task of remixing Blaze's 1996 New Jersey classic, "Lovelee Dae". Wisely, the Belfast boys have retained many of the original's sumptuous elements -sweeping strings, rich chords and summery vocal included - and expertly fused them with carnival-friendly drums and a deliciously tactile, Italian house style bassline. The fine vocal mix is accompanied by a similarly impressive Dub, where the duo makes merry with floating, delay-heavy vocal snippets, filters, and their own dense, party-rocking rhythm.
