Out Now on Bedrock Records

Following on from the Original and Low End Specialists remixes of Andante, Bedrock dish up another disc with a remix from NYC's The Scumfrog and the Taiko Dub, so without any need for more words, let's find out what these mixes add to the track.

Jesse Houk, better known to most as The Scumfrog follows on from such groundbreaking remixes of artists such as Kylie Minogue and IIO with his own revisitation of Andante, keeping all the best elements of the original and adding some tough tribal rolling beats amidst lashing of break-esque riffs and dark atmospherics, yet retaining a funky vibe that has become synonymous with The Scumfrog.

Finishing off the package is the Taiko Dub which is a slightly darker, dubbed out version of the Original which compliments the rest of the package nicely, but doesn't realy offer anything that different to what has come already.

So there we have it. Steve Lawler's second original production stands up nicely to Rise In and manages to shine amidst many other tracks of a similar vibe currently available at record stores around the globe, thanks in a big way to the superb remixes comissioned for the package. Another great release from Bedrock.
