Review: Something of a meeting of minds here, as house hero Huxley takes on this collaboration between breaks stalwarts the Stantons and Kosheen singer Sian Evans. The fruit of this heavy-hitting three-way, served up in simple Huxley Remix and Huxley Extended Remix rubs that clock in at 2:42 and 6:50 respectively, is a surprisingly old school-sounding houser with driving 4/4s and proper 90s Ibiza-style hands-in-the-air pianos providing the perfect accompaniment to the big room drama of Ms Evans' vocal. Expect to be hearing this one a lot over the summer, particularly during those full-on peaktime moments.
Review: Dr Meaker's fan favourite "Right Back" gets four remixes, giving a brand new perspective on this gorgeous little track. Beatmaker legend Break gets his hands on the first slot on the release, cutting into the drop in a stunningly stark way, weaving dark drums magic the only way he can. Next up is Nathan Dalton's floorstomping 2-step take, pumping out the garage vibes and cranking the bass up to roof-raising levels. If harder-edged drum & bass is more your thing, 12 Inh has switched the BPM right back up and added more than a nudge of extra percussion for a huge jump up vibe with a jazzy twist. Finally, because it was just so damn good, that bassy garage retwist is back for an extended mix. Excellent.
Review: Given the title and presence of vocalist Sian Evans, it doesn't take a genius to work out that this is a cover of Kosheen's biggest hit, 2000's worldwide anthem "Hide U". As covers go, it's pretty tasty. Faithful enough to be recognisable, yet different enough to breathe new life into a 12 year-old classic, it benefits greatly from loose drums and electro-friendly wall-of-sound production from remixer Jerome Robbins. Evans is in fine voice, too, her vocal soaring above the bubbling backdrop. The original is an anthem, and this new version is, too. Expect to hear it a lot this summer.
