Bringing some dusty, blown valve house sounds to the fold we welcome the sonic deftness of Mark E, Session Victim & The Francis Inferno Orchestra; three artists responsible for some of our favourite house and disco tracks from the past year. Throwing some new light on 'Your Touch', all three come up with their own interpretations, giving the original a tickle and prod in all the right places and bending it out of shape in the best way possible. These are remixes that take aim at the discerning dancefloor, where the four-four rules the roost and house is king.
Riley Reinhold a true unsung hero of house music, responsible for several labels including Traum Schallplatten, Trapez and My Best Friend, all a mainstay on our monthly podcast; he is, it would seem compelled to bring the world quality house and techno music. His version of 'Your Touch' finds its home in the early part of the morning or the late part of the night, depends on your outlook, jam packed with guile and melodic flourish, its a big track from a big man, that isnt afraid to put its hand up in class and shout 'check me out'.
Lastly we roped in Loose Fit and Social Monster. Both incredibly talented duos that feature a large live element in there sound. The similarities stop there, Loose Fit's remix Love The Freak in something of a New York punk funk-ish way, all low slung guitars and shimmering high end, we are seeing the East Village in its pomp or Chorleton on Friday nights. Social Monster's mix of My Kiss is composed of some big ol' bass and melodic twirls, while that sounds like cheer leading routine their additional hauntingly intimate vocal makes it sound like the ghost has finally escaped the machine.
