Fast forward to 2019, and this already well loved, now classic music gets the Atjazz remix treatment. Martin Iveson is of course Atjazz and has built a fantastic reputation by remixing and reworking songs & works for artists such as Nitin Sawhney, Bob Sinclar, Jazzanova, Zed Bias & Omar to name but a few and was even requested to rework Henri Mancini's 'The Pink Panther Returns' for EMI Records.
His re-interpretations of Oyelo are absolute prime examples of the remixers art - retaining the vital elements but expanding and re-energising the elements that result in a kaleidoscope of truly sizzling audio treats. Delight at the 'Astro' and 'Love Soul' remixes that feature the vocals of revered Cuban singer Rene Alvarez.
If that wasn't enough - there's also instrumental versions of both - 'Astro instrumental' is sparse and spacey - and then some beautiful synth sounds take centre stage - whilst the 'Love Soul instrumental' remix focuses on the more rhythmic angle, and highlights the incredible Montuno piano riffs performed by the multi-talented main man Claudio Passavanti - the creative driving force of Sunlightsquare.
'Oyelo - the Atjazz remixes' is an absolute shining example of what can happen when the talents of 2 highly creative individual combine - and it is beautiful!
