4 To The Floor celebrates the enchanting sound of 'Second Wind', originally released on Bombay Records in 2002. Produced by Rise Ashen, aka Eric Vani, 'Second Wind' meshes together tribal percussions with the sultry sound of a saxophone behind hypnotic vocals by Nick-E. 'Second Wind' stays true to Rise Ashen's experimental style of DJing, often dabbling in ancient rhythms combined with nu-jazz and house. His work appears on compilations by Rainer Truby and Roger Sanchez with support from artists such as Masters at Work, Laurent Garnier and Bonobo. The EP features Rise Ashen's Club Dub, accentuating the percussion throughout the track, and the 'Patrick Dream Sax Dub', produced by Patrick Dream and Miguel Graca, which sees the track take on a groovier beat with drops emphasising the rumble of a meditative chant behind.
