New York based producer Beat Pharmacy aka Brendan Moeller has been putting out downtempo and house tackle since the mid nineties with Third Ear Records, Echocord, Mule Musiq and Eskimo Recordings amongst the labels that built a solid reputation for the South African. "Original Sin" sees Moeller step out from beneath the colossal shadow of Francois K for a bit of burning house music on Glaswegian imprint Solardisco. Dutch singer/producer Zoe Xenia is central to the song, with Beat Pharmacy moulding an abrasive groove upon which her distinctive holler plays off nicely against the burning synth stabs. Label boss Maelstrom retains the swirling backdrop flourishes of the original but adds some depth to the bass over a shuffling disco groove. As Xenia's vocals make this release an acapella is on hand for the more creative types to indulge in.
