Slothboogie's latest series, 'Remixing With Friends', was founded on the simplest of ideas, namely to get artists they admire to rework tracks from the label's growing catalogue. The series' debut offering is suitably strong from start to finish. Scottish slow-house veteran The Revenge delivers a pleasingly crunchy spacey and hypnotic rework of DJ Akmael's 'Strobe', before Joe Cleen re-imagines Subjoi's 'What You Do' as a deep and sensuous two-step garage workout with added sexy organ stabs and solos. International Dateline then delivers a tweak of Jesse Bru's 'Yellow Sunshine Machine' that sits somewhere between Metro Area and sparse analogue house, while Jason Hodges turns I Germin's 'Green Light' into a woozy-but-bumpin' disco-house loop jam. Best of all though is Chrissy's energetic, TB-303-propelled, breakbeat-sporting re-wire of Jesse Bru and Max Ullis's 'Big Chirp'.
