Nirosta Steel

Everybody Sing - Inc. Mind Fair & Cole Medina Remixes

About this item

Nirosta Steel is a sometime alias of Steven Hall - musician and survivor of the `80s NYC`s art melting pot. "Everybody Sing" dances like Steven`s long-term collaborator and lost-way-too-early friend, Arthur Russell. Riding low rumbling bass, phased guitar & rhythmic picking that flickers in and out of the mix. Strings, choir boy falsetto, and blue yodel all working at cutting through its delay-drenched, dancefloor delirium.

L.A.`s Cole Medina delivers two reworks. His "Heavy Disco" take is intro`d by cowbell and synth swirls. Cymbals crash like sampled surf while Stratocaster microtones and echoes of the original, wash over an electronically re-imagined B-line and trippy keyboard sequences.

Cole`s "Knuckles Tribute" sets punchy B-line, poignant piano and gated orchestral euphoria against a classic Def Mix groove. Clarifying the lyric`s call for unity, the sheer warmth and texture of the mix should be plenty for nocturnal revelers to embrace.

Mind Fair`s version goes in for some tribal disco thumping. Stripping the track down before building it back up. Its big chesty kicks firing off like a cocaine-fuelled heartbeat Imagine Coati Mundi-meets-Jah Wobble and they make a track for The Loft and you'll be halfway there! Tasty EP this, full of fun and goodness!
