Future You Alto (Nacho Marco remix Ahead of its latest ‘Family Affair’ compilation Lost My Dog deliver the second of three sampler singles featuring compiler Pete Dafeet with remixes from Pezzner and Nacho Marco.
The first sampler single, ‘Beneath The Fold’, picked up support from Laura Jones, Rob Mello, Maceo Plex, Jimpster and Sebo K to name just a handful and is yet another success in the UK label’s history.
Kicking off with the original of ‘Hit ‘Em Up’, this EP is yet another nicely rounded taster of Lost My Dog and its forthcoming ‘Family Affair’ compilation release, which mixes back catalogue and new remixes into a mix/digital bundle. ‘Hit Em Up’ see’s Dafeet in one of his many house comfort zones, turning in a classic, bumping piece of New Jersey house complete with dense drum work, bubbling bottom end and striking chords.
Pezzner delivers two versions, with his ‘remix’ first up. Steadily rolling out a dubby groove that teases various elements of the original with nifty editing, delays and filtering before releasing the tension fully after the break. His ‘dub’ version channels a modern MAW dub vibe, percussive and slow burning with just enough of the original’s hooks to do the right kind of damage.
Pete Dafeet’s ‘Future You’ is the second original track on the EP, and sees the London based producer indulge an understated disco aesthetic to his unshakable house sensibilities while the final remix of the package see’s Freerange/Loudeast artist Nacho Marco mutate ‘Alto’ into a crisp slice of angular yet rolling house.
