2020 Vision drop a killer remix package of Crazy P this January, taken from the forthcoming Crazy P Remixes album out early January 2013, the wax features exclusive remixes from reputable talents Burnski, Bonar Bradberry and Wolf + Lamb.

2020 Vision released the Crazy P ‘Heartbreaker [Remixes]’ in late 2012 which featured remixes from two rising stars of the underground, Huxley and Mark E. Now the label displays its undeniable A&R skills once again, pulling in the services of four incredibly hyped artists to deliver tasteful, intelligent reworks of this British band.

The package opens with the ‘Burnski Remix’ of ‘Beatbox’, the Leeds born producer ventures in a slightly more funk-laden direction from his usual raw, deep house vibes, instead opting for a slo-mo, soulful disco feel, embracing the aesthetic of the original cut and stamping his mark on it with a fusion of warm synths and shuffling drums.

Next up is PBR Streetgang member Bonar Bradberry, with his remix of ‘Eruption’, Bradberry kicked up a storm in 2012 with releases for heavily hyped imprint Needwant, alongside Ejeca, Kim Ann Foxman and Maxxi Soundsystem. Here he shows just why he’s been in such high demand as of late, providing a heady, hypnotic rework infused with warmth and energy. Bradberry skillfully layers snippets of the original cuts vocals on top of his signature, dropped-tempo insistent groove reshaping the cut as a peak-time heavy hitter.

Closing the release 2020 employ the services of New York’s Wolf + Lamb feat. Slow Hands. The Wolf + Lamb crew stepped on to the radar of underground house music several years ago and its safe to say, firmly positioned themselves as purveyors of a niche and exciting contemporary sound. The duo’s mix of ‘We Can Only Be’ shows exactly that, with off-kilter broken beat drums, emotive guitar chords and staccato licks running alongside a walking style bass-line and gospel style vocal lines, resulting in a smooth and classy interpretation.

This is yet another outstanding release from the 2020 Vision label and a clear cut sign that 2013 is going to be another stellar year for the brand.
