Let’s back on track, shall we? Summer is in full effect and Mr. “Summertime All The Time” aka Viceroy brought sunshine sounds on his excellent take on Big Data’s “The Business Of Emotion”. Speaking of Viceroy, “Back At The Start” finally got its own remix treatment with Honest’s pulsing house backdrop. If you want even more horns, Eau Claire rounded out Saint Motel’s sax-filled hit “My Type” (also her first official remix!) with tropical keys and effects. Elsewhere, RF stalwarts Snakehips, RAC and WMNSTUDIES offered new looks at Flight Facilities, Saint Raymond and Humans cuts (respectively), and RF newcomer Arthur Younger gave We Are Legends a bit of nu disco for your Friday night.
I was already obsessed with the original edition of the Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne collabo “Not Letting Go”, but Sammy Porter’s remix easily earned favorite remix of the week honors. Glynne’s intoxicating vocals matched Porter’s circulating house rhythms and served as a vocal effects template for the producer to experiment with.
