Greetings from Down Under! Not to make anyone in the UK jealous or anything, but I’m currently writing from a warm and peaceful balcony in Randwick, beer in hand, previewing some amazing new music. So onto my first post as a Sydneysider, and what a cracker it is too...
The lads over at Wah Wah 45s have been really busy over in the UK, with their latest offering the Colman Brothers Remixed long-player.
Whilst the Colman boys typically bring 60s Latin influences to the forefront of their material, this remix album gives their already accomplished style a razor-sharp edge, with the album a melting pot of styles and influences atop the Brothers’ outstanding trumpet and trombone work.
Reworks come from some well established names as well as some new faces. Sunlightsquare give ‘Some Other Wonder’ the US house treatment, label lovely Scrimshire brings his distinctive laid-back style to ‘She Who Dares’, and the ever popular Tall Black Guy puts his gentle, magical touch to ‘On A Better Day I’m Dreamin’.
The rest of the album almost reads like a who’s-who of the world’s nu soul talent, including remixes from Part-Time Heroes, The Herbaliser, and Renegades of Jazz.
‘Remixed’ is out 11th March. Pre-order the album here:
