Even before Deutsche Grammophon‘s Recomposed by Carl Craig & Moritz von Oswald was out, rumours of Ricardo Villalobos remixes made the round. This week, a 12-inch finally proved this to be true – at least one Villalobos remix accompanied by another by Carl Craig made it on the record. As you can expect, both are taking the material originally written by Mussorgsky and Ravel and transform it into more dancefloor-oriented versions, and both break the 10 minutes limit easily. If you ask me, they should’ve added an Isolée remix as well.
A. Uli, mein Ponyhof (Ricardo Villalobos remix)
B. Movement 8 (C2 version)
A quick websearch will produce multiple results on where to buy this, I’ve spotted this on Juno, Rush Hour and Piccadilly.
Seems like 2004’s Bitasweet release of the JB Rose track It’s Time was reissued recently. For a moment it looked like the first release on the Bugz in the Attic label in a long time. But no – nothing new here, but a good chance to get it if you missed it before.A1. It’s Time (main mix)
A2. It’s Time (Zed Bias mix)
B1. It’s Time (Zed Bias instrumental)
It’s time was produced by Alex Phountzi, with Kaidi Tatham adding his magic on the keys. The 12-inch can be purchased from Juno Records, though other stores might have it as well.
The new Kindred Spirits sub-label Nod Navigators has just dropped The Fucking Formula from Dorian Concept, a 12-inch preceeding the young beatmaker’s debut album When Planets Explode, which is set to be released in January 2009. The single’s title track was already coined a classic on Benji B‘s Deviation show and it’s accompanied by two tracks, that will not be on the album.
1. The Fucking Formula
2. Sweet Yard Sale (non-album track)
3. United Tree (non-album track)
I don’t have any snippets for you, but why don’t you just go to the Rush Hour Store, where I have spotted it in the first place!
Also not on the album is Ding Ding Thing, an exclusive track from the compilation to the 2008 edition of temp~ festival. Dorian made a performance there in summer, I have received this recording from my friend Idleberg.
The ties between Joy Jones and Bugz in the Attic go back to 2002, when she had an appearance on the Agent K album Feed the Cat (vocals on the title track). Later that year she sang on Zombie (together with Wunmi), the Bugz contribution on the Fela Kuti tribute compilation Red, Hot and Riot (a 12″ on Bitasweet followed in 2003). Following silent three years, Joy made a reappearance with her fantastic Divinity EP on Co-Operation Records.
So much for the introduction, let’s get to the news. Daz-I-Kue, now living in the states, has finished mixing the final track for Joy’s upcoming LP. In the meantime, we get a brandnew EP.A1. The Joy (Soulful Fundamentalist mix)
A2. The Joy (Drop It mix)
A2. The Joy (Lil’ Dave remix)
B1. This Too Shall Pass (Daz-I-Kue mix)
B2. This Too Shall Pass (Spinnerty remix)
B3. This Too Shall Pass (acappella)
The Daz-I-Kue remix is currently the second-best selling tune on Bagpak Music, and the vinyl-record is available via Juno Records since this week.
Already released on their remix album Seven Ways To Wonder (The Remixes), London’s Reel People have released a 12-inch containing the IG Culture remix of Outta Love with Omar on vocals. It’s different from the rinse that has been played on Worldwide or various other West London sets, but it’s clearly the standout tune and it’s on wax.A1. Outta Love (Album Mix)
A2. Outta Love (Alix Alvarez SOLE Channel Dub)
B1. Outta Love (IG Culture Bruk For The Love Refit)
B2. Outta Love (Alix Alvarez SOLE Channel Mix)
The other two remixes are probably not worth mentioning, both club house interpretations of the also included original. I spotted the Outta Love on Piccadilly Records and Juno, a digital release is also available.
