It would be fair to say that BBE has pushed the boat out with this release, which boasts a sextet of fresh versions of "We Rise", the spiritually minded standout cut from The James L'Estraunge Orchestra's 2017 debut album Eventual Reality. You'll find that track - a deliciously cinematic fusion of live jazz, sweeping orchestration, soulful vocals and sparkling jazz-funk synths from the mind of Scottish producer Ricky Reid - at the tail end of the EP. Elsewhere, it's all about the remixes, and in particular the rubs by Reid's old pals 6th Borough Project. The experienced duo serves up four revisions: a sinewy, skipping, slightly broken deep house vocal version, a similar instrumental, a breezy and rolling dub containing occasional vocal snippets and a hypnotic, life-affirming Dubstrumental rich in alien synth lines and loose-limbed percussion.
