James Welsh ‘The Way’ EP has been played, raved to and generally bigged up by some of the biggest names in dance music (Ame, Maya Jane Coles, James Zabiela, Deetron, Space Dimension Controller, Sasha, Luke Solomon, see, we weren’t joking mate). Whilst Zoo Look’s earlier ‘People Let Me Down’ release has been thrust upon un-suspecting dance floors by the likes of Tony Humphries, Max Essa, Ralph Lawson, Jimpster and Cole Medina. It’s a smorgasbord of DJ talent, all serving up only the best ingredients.
However James and the Zoo Look brethren were not content with simply taking a shot at world domination with their respective releases, so we have tooled up two of this year’s biggest remix maestros in Medlar and Tom Demac to provide us with their own interpretations of two of our biggest tracks of 2012.
The original of James Welsh’s ‘The Way’ is a smooth grooving, RnB laced piece of house music. Perfect for eliciting a ‘lil’ bump and grind for the ladies on the floor. Tom Demac slips (but not so quietly) something like a 90’s house bass line into the mix, stepping the sexual chocolate up, removing the grind but not the bump. Whilst the original was a warm up weapon, Demac’s re-interpretation is definitely not to be introduced during foreplay.
Whether remixing Deep Space Orchestra, Disclosure or dropping gigantic (if somewhat Cheeky) white-label garage-house juggernauts Medlar has spent the last couple of years releasing his own material or indeed meddling in others sonic business. Here he takes Zoo Looks slo-mo chug-athon and sprinkles it with fairy dust, a dash of disco and a whole heap of that Medlar attitude. Whatever exactly that may be?
