Irish producers Zero T and Beta 2, Searchlight, have selected three of their favourite electronic producer teams to rework tracks from their debut, self-titled, neo-soul album; Atjazz, Wipe The Needle and Afroforce.
Lee Gomez under his Wipe The Needle moniker takes ‘We Could Be More’ featuring Manchester’s new school, soul king [ K S R ], right through to deepest West London. The remix drives with broken beats, uplifting strings, choirs and soulful keys leading to a change that feels like a true celebration of the current resurgence of Bruk in the capital’s clubs.
UK House music legend Martin Iveson AKA Atjazz declares war on the time signatures on ‘Can We Go Back’ Ft. Tolü Makay. The mix begins downtempo, playing neatly with polyrhythm synths and Tolü’s vocals before cleverly and beautifully, switching to an up-tempo Atjazz groove.
Bugz In the Attic core members Mark Force and Afronaut team up under their Afroforce guise to take on Breathe, once again featuring Irish rising star vocalist, Tolü Makay. Originally co-written by Goldie himself for Searchlight’s debut album, the remix sees Mark and Orin replay the keys and flip the song into a modern, bruk-wise dancefloor bomb.
