Just got this EP send to us today, pretty amazing stuff. ‘Deliverance’ is the title track and one of the highlights from the 2nd Space 1978 album. It’s been sampled, it’s been covered, it’s even one of Elton John’s “favourites”…. However it hasn’t been remixed….until now.
The track is full of fine vocal performances. Jazz and session legend Madeline Bell takes the lead and truly delivers a spin-tingling belter of a vocal. The track also features what sounds like a Welsh male voice choir. However such is the genius of producer JP Illescuo that it’s actually only two French backing singer chaps, multi-tracked to high heaven.
Justus Köhncke is first up on the remix duty. He turns in two great versions. First the ‘Wild Pitch’ remix takes inspiration from a certain Chicago house label and tons of growling underbelly synth to meld with Madeline’s soulful vocals for a sweaty floor prime time drop. His second mix is more vocal and full of walking bass and stabby synth, quality from the German wunder prince of sound.
The love Supreme & The Heels Of Love turn out amazing remixes too, this drops on the 21st of June!
