Review: Well, you can't really go wrong with a track name Mandarine & Heroin can you, here we have a reworked remix EP of Northern Souls, latest funkadelic treats. Starting the release with chilled, laid back number, with bongo and repetitive beat, it's almost trance inducing. "Knee Deep' stays truer to it's groovy roots, the piano is so captivating, while the horns add a soulful vibe. 'Talk' is our favourite remix of the release with its 4/4 beat paten it tiptoes into the realms of house, but with vocals and string keep it's roots firmly dug into it's 70's influenced disco past.
