It’s finally here! The second installment of Pablo and Shoey’s ‘Rejigs’ series has landed, featuring 3 more lovingly reconstructed floorfillers for the front of your box…
The lead track is a fierce electro-boogie workout that’s been sampled on pop rave standards like Snap’s ‘The Power’, Moby’s ‘Go’, Bizarre Inc’s ‘I’m Gonna Get You’, and somewhat more credibly by KRS-One’s Boogie Down Productions crew. As usual we sliced out loads of the cheese from the original and concentrated on the hypnotic groove. Then we cheekily knocked loads of the famous samples together to get ‘em juiced before unleashing the kind of chorus that will leave tears all over the dancefloor at 3am.
‘TP With The ILL Behaviour’ pays tribute to Detroit house producer and turntable legend Terrence Parker, recreating a section of one of his mid 90′s mixtapes where he slams a well known hip hop acapella on top of some swish euro-disco to devastating effect. We got Dublin hip hop whippersnapper Paddy O’Halpin aka Handsome Paddy in to help recreate some of the itchin’ and a scratchin’, and he sounds absolutely razor sharp on this one. The whole thing is simply built for a loose and sweaty hands in the air moment at your favourite scuzzy late night hovel!
‘Let Me Love Ya’, meanwhile, is all about the bad ass early 80′s boogie bassline, wailing diva vocals and psychedelic funk guitars that just won’t quit. In their trademark chopped up style the outro seizes on a brief vocoder led section in the fade out and stretches out for a hypnotic five minute coda that will send ‘em all home happy…….
We’re looking forward to seeing it spread it’s tentacles to the four corners of the globe just like ‘Rejigs Vol 1′ did. We’ve also signed off on the first installment of our long trumpeted ‘Downtownsounds Classics’ series, with one screaming disco classic given the Pablo and Shoey treatment and one 15 minute 21st Century epic for the first one, complete with natty full colour sleeve design. Watch this space, and we mean it this time.
