Coming out on Beatport March 4th is Border Patrols two-track remix EP of Fast Eddie feat. CeCe Penistons Get to Steppin. Although initially intended for release alongside the original back in 2013, the duo of Chuck Daniels and Jason Hodges narrowly missed the deadline for inclusion. As a result, their version of the S&S Records tune was instead put on a 35-track compilation shortly thereafter. While it was lauded by the label and played by the likes of Oliver Dollar, Derrick Carter and Mark Farina, the track got lost amidst all that music. Finally getting the due it deserves, S&S head honchos Steve Silk Hurley and Shannon Skip Syas personally slated the remix for a solo release. With an additional, updated re-work now part of the package, Fast Eddie and CeCe Penistons house groove is given new life at the hands of Border Patrol.
Written by hip-house legend Fast Eddie and featuring the vocals of R&B diva CeCe Peniston, Get to Steppin has the feel of the Chicago house classics, while making waves as an instant anthem. Both Border Patrol remixes bring in heavy basslines for some added funk, layered on top of tricky effects and cleverly cut vocal stabs. The vintage EMU SP-1200 lays the foundation for the grooves, giving them the sound of raw and swing-driven drums. Paired with Penistons unmistakable voice and Fast Eddies legendary songwriting skills, Border Patrols fine-tuned finesse punches up this masterful track.
