Quivver & Blackwatch "Loveless"

Out Now on Boz Boz Recordings

Ever since it's existence came to light, a collaboration between John Graham and Michael Thomas has been sought after, and in spite of an appearance on Paul Oakenfold's 'Great Wall' compilation and the odd cheeky bootleg demo, 'Loveless' was never officially released - until now. As Quivver and Blackwatch respectively, both producer needs no introduction as their back catalogues speak for themselves, and even today 'Loveless' still stands as worthy addition to their individual resumes, with the new remix from Ramsay (Chris Lake & Rhythm Code) giving it an update for 2005.

The 'Original Mix' combines the best elements of individual's production, the trademark Blackwatch bass and beats and the awesome melodies and synth work that has created many a classic for Quivver. With a driving main line, killer groove and a vocal by John Graham himself that makes the hair on your arms stand up, 'Loveless' still sounds as great today as it did when it first appeared.

Following on, the 'Ramsay Mix' offers a more streamlined alternative, stripped back house at it's finest, with the emphasis on a wicked bottom heavy groove. Whilst the atmospheric sounds give the mix a deep feel, it's packs enough bite to hold any dancefloor in its control.

Some may have forgotten about the track, but here in it's full complete form finally and with a monster of a mix from newcomers Ramsay should give anyone enough case to check it out, and once again marks another great release for the Boz Boz label.
