On Anchorsong's new album, "Cohesion", "Testimony" is a jaunty chunk of Bollywood influenced goodness complete with tablas, Indian style drums and heaps and warm and woozy musical touches. Here it gets the remix treatment by Nina Tune and Wulf duo Letherette, who naturally give it a completely different spin. Their take on the Tokyo-born producer's tasty cut is a much more dancefloor-focused affair, with blasts of Bollywood percussion, drowsy piano motifs and chopped-up vocal samples rising above a smooth and bass-heavy deep house groove. It's a radical re-invention, all told, but also utterly terrific. This is proper UK deep house for late nights and early mornings.
Star producer Andrea Oliva is back on Jamie Jones' always reliable imprint, with a brand new set of sturdy tech house numbers sure to rock the house. This release following up some tough grooves on Circus, Saved and Rawthentic. In typical Hot Creations style "Upside Down" is aimed squarely at the main room dancefloor and bounces away in near bombastic fashion, to get the crowd into the zone a bit earlier in the night "Piano Not Piano" works a treat with its dubby and hypnotic elements, as does "Sound Like That" with its use of strong swing and its catchy vocal refrain.
