*Pre-Order / Releases 1 December*
Hot on the heels of their fifth fantastic LP ‘Thee’ – their first for 25 years and debut for Acid Jazz – house stalwarts X-Press 2 have enlisted David Holmes to remix album track ‘Phasing You Out’ (feat. Kele Okereke). The original version sits at the heart of the new album which again showed that Rocky and Diesel remain dedicated to proper house music.
David Holmes has had a 25+ year career in music that has seen him release several vital albums amd remix artists like Andrew Weatherall, Primal Scream and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, hold down a cult NTS radio show. and turn out a seminal mix for Late Night Tales.
He brings plenty of signature musicality to what is a standout remix – his version of ‘Phasing You Out’ is an intense one that unfolds over eight minutes of percussive density, dusty drum work and careful treatment of the original vocal. The whole arrangement is lavishly decorated with wispy pads and glassy sound effects, police sirens and a rhythmic intensity that never lets up and will work any floor into a frenzy.
