Getting attention with plays from Kissy Sell Out and Annie Nightingale, the new Deekline & Wizard single ‘Back Up, Coming Through’ includes remixes by the trio of Krafty Kuts, AC Slater and TRG.
You’ll remember Deekline (aka Nick Annand) and Wizard (aka Greg Fleming) worked their magic last year with the track ‘Angels‘ and they are back with their new 12″. Like ‘Angels’, ‘Back Up’ features the big room vocals of Yolanda as you’ll recognise along with her previous work with Joey Negro & The Sunburst Band, Domu and Bugz In The Attic of course.
Krafty Kuts (aka Martin Reeves) is a Finger Lickin’ funker of old and has been an in-demand remixer many years now (including Xpress 2, The Chemical Brothers, DJ Fresh, M.I.A, Lady Soveriegn and many more) and has lost nothing of his hit making technique as we get a 12″ summer mix and a club version; Was Not Was fans will be impressed.
In 2007 AC Slater moved away from hardcore and raves to focus on a more club oriented sound, getting commissioned to do remixes for artists such as Freestylers, Moby, Shwayze, Human Resource and even Drop The Lime (who’s getting action from Toro Y Moi and Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip to name drop just two). His remix is the hardest of the lot here whilst TRG (aka Cosmin Nicolae) is one of the current crop of dubsteppers of choice for the wobble wizards. This one probably falls between the two stools so to speak but that’s good if you’re not exclusiviely dupstep DJ and you’re looking for a transition track.
This is just the warm-up to raise the temperature for the full album release, also calledBack Up, Coming Through that hopefully will land very soon as it’s coming out in April; show some love for the music.
