New Huxley remix for you.
And it’s an absolute gem, even if the big guy says so himself. He’s got all dark and moody on us by reworking Close feat. Fink – ‘Wallflower‘. Close is Will Saul‘s pet project, and Wallflower sees him team up with Aus Music compadre Fink. It’s taken from Close’s second album, ‘Getting Closer’, a fairly well received release from June this year.
Whilst Aus Music and Simple Records, Will’s other label, both promote the underground house and techno talent in the UK, Close is a more commercially focussed music project, with support from a number of big names like Scuba, Tanner Ross and Fat Freddie’s Drop singer, Joe Dukie. The clear aim of Close was to create an album, not just a selection of tracks, and give it a level of sophistication that required repeat listens, so says Will.
Whilst the original, like much of the album, is carefully paced, tidy and lushly textured, Huxley has taken the mood down a notch or two, building on the atmosphere that’s already present, resulting in a crisp but heavy deep house remix. We think it fits equally well with the early stages of a club set as it does with the late night bus ride down the Walworth road, as you repeatedly question whether or not treating yourself to a cheese and chips from Golden Grill would make your mother proud.
And it’s not the only top remixing being done off the back of ‘Getting Closer’. The Dusky and Midland remixes of ‘My Way’ feat. Joe Dukie are both excellent. Despite being based on the same original release, both produces create contrasting sounds, whilst also stamping their own easily-identifiable presence on the track. A good few things to go on here then, especially if you like your music a touch deeper than most.
