Norman Cook’s seminal Mighty Dub Katz moniker comes to the fore once more as Southern Fried Records enlist the services of Doorly, Butch and Boris Dlugosch to remix two classics from the vault. Both the Butch and Boris tracks have already had big support on Radio 1 from Pete Tong and Annie Mac, so proof if it were needed that this is another sensational package.
First to step up is German production heavyweight Butch, an artist with an enviable catalogue on labels such as Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Seth Troxler’s Play it Say it, Radio Slave’s Rekids, Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations and the Visionquest imprint. Here he strips back the disco samplefest that is 2002’s ‘Let the Drums Speak’ and turns in a rolling percussive house groove that wraps itself around an infectious bassline. Tightly edited vocal snippets and subtle effects all add depth to the mix whilst the arrangement builds towards a climactic drop. It’s a guaranteed floorfilling remix that truly breathes new life into the sterling original.
Second of the two mixes comes from Hamburg House hero Doris Dlugosch, a DJ and producer who has been keeping dance music fans locked for over 20 years now. His mix of 1995’s ‘Just another Groove’ stays true to its disco roots, infusing it with a soulful and rolling house sound that is bound to please DJs and dancers alike this summer.
Last but not least is Doorly, a global house heavyweight who features at clubs like Space Ibiza on his global travels, releases on Cajual, Hot Creations and Dirtybird and is no stranger to hitting high places in the charts with his big and infectious sounds. His version of ‘Just Another Groove’ is infectiously loopy, with jittery percussion and manic vocal patterns really sucking you into the groove. It’s pure dancing material to get whole floors marching as one and rounds that package out in fine style.
