Here we find a very sophisticated package from the ever reliable Lost & Found label, as some label favourites collaborate, and also invite a house music legend on remix duties.
Luka Sambe & Filter Bear have previously collaborated, and have remixed each other, as well as both having successful solo music careers too. Here they deliver a superb track together entitled 'Hebe XVI'.
Getting to the music, the original kicks things off, and its skippy swagger is encapsulated from the off, as layers swirl in and out, and percussion floats over this afro grooved gem. A musical journey ensues as swirling pads, tinkling melodies, and even orchestral tones enter the layered masterpiece. This is a timeless musical voyage, that undulates and peaks organically and oozes class throughout.
For those that have been around for a while on the scene, will know Charles Webster as a bit of a musical institution, a true master of his game. We are spoilt here, with two mixes from the main man.
Charles' 'Mix 1' takes things deep and sleazy, a tad techier than how work he's best known for, yet superbly done, as distorted percussion joins the swaggering late night vibe thats laced with a touch of acid, yet light shines through as brilliant use of the original top line bring a different slant to the direction of the remix. Very cool indeed.
Charles 'Mix 4' is more akin to the sound we know and love from him, as we go seriously deep, with a quality remix of the highest order. Sultry moodiness, is wrapped in a blanket of deepness, but with a hint of classic American house to boot. Just what the doctor ordered.
