Wah Wah? Woah Woah more like... Scrimshire & Dom Servini's evergreen funk/soul imprint digs deep into its vaults and recruits a whole rollcall of talented names for this massive remix stack. Highlights include pretty much every version on here but if you're a person on the move and time, to you, is money then you might want to invest all your stocks and shares on The Reflex's percussion chugging piano slapping twist of Henri Pierre Noel's "Funky Spider Dance", Books slinky uptempo twist on Dele Sosimi's Afrofunk gem "I Don't Care" and Steve Cobby's warm-as-toast twist of Soothsayers' "Dis & Dat". And that's not even scratching the surface. Look at the names on here; this sums up all of Wah Wah's musical strengths to their max. Essential.
The guys at Freshly Squeezed have delivered us a delicious treat with this one as we delve into series 2.2 of 'Blue Cover', a fantastic collection project designed to bring out the most creative swing infused creations. Wolfgang Lohr kicks us off in collaboration with The Speakeasy Three for an authentic big band 4x4 fusion. Next, Nat Gonella and Pisk provide us with more horn led grooves before Atom Smith turns up the sauce alongside Miss Emmma on 'Not Sorry Charlie'. BURKEY then joins Atom Smith on the catchy riffs of 'Bright Like Hollywood', before we finish up on The Swing Bot's masterpiece in 'Midnight Purple'.
UKG legend and all around underground dance music icon Zed Bias makes his return here via Biasonic for a very enjoyable remix project, which takes a deeper look into 'Fwd & Back'. First of all, we dip into an exciting 2018 rework of the original creation, beefing up the drums, bass notation and atmospheric pressure to compliment the assertive vocal even more than before. We are also gifted an official remix from Shontay, who takes a look at reworking the track into a moogy half time format, perfect for tripping out the dance. This one also comes complete with the original instrumental and vocal mixes.
