Having realised that it has been a while since I contributed to this place, I looked through my recent CD purchases to see what good tunes (that wouldn’t get the blog removed) I could post. This one was a good shout because it takes the original hardcore Roy Ayers sampling track by T.H.C. (Slipmatt & Lime), which was made in 93 & brings it forward, with a newer jungle feel.
Remixed by Jo, one of the dancers from SL2 that then later went onto to make the seminal anthem R-Type, she lends her hand at bringing the original up to date with a much faster pace, using such frenetic break edits & switching, couple with a subtle 808 roll-out bassline. I think this is a great example of how to remix/update a track into a slightly newer style, whilst retaining what makes the original so good.
