Part 1 Of This Remix Series & My Favourite -- Soulful Vocal Deep House & Blissed Out Grooves
A wide range of artists remixing tracks from Mr. Fingers latest album "Cerebral Hemispheres". First of a three part remix EP series. For the first one duties go to Rodaidh McDonald and Larry Heard himself for fresh versions of "Praise to the Vibes" while Call Super and Duplex shine their light on "Crying Over You".
"Praise To The Vibes" enjoys some added embellishments - pranging woodblock delays, slightly vocodered vocal section and a rich canvas of instrumentation - resulting in, I'm afraid, this being THE definitive version of this tune (commiserations album owners - you ARE gonna have to invest in these extras...!).
Call Super prolongs his stay in the house music spotlight by deconstructing "Crying Over You" into glistening fractals and bubbly perc, as if the whole thing slowly dripping through a spectral filter. Woozy, heady and thoroughly intoxifying, it shows a fearless producer enjoying a lavish spell of confidence and assurance.
Larry gets back on track offering an extention to "Praise To The Vibes" before Duplex drops the second remix of "Crying Over You" - an emotive and steady cut that you'd perhaps catch Omar S or Ron Trent having loads of fun with in the mix.
