About this item
After teasing us all summer long with sunset plays from the best Balearic names in the game, Hell Yeah finally floored us with the release of Calm's stunning "By Your Side" in the autumn. Delicate, dreamy and filled with cosmic charm, the LP sounded just as good in the winter as it had in the summer, making its mark on plenty of end of year charts.
Now the label revisit the album with a series of special remixes, certain to keep us smiling all summer long. Part 1 sees the Japanese artist revisit one track himself, while Mind Fair also step up with fresh new version of album favourite "My Home Town".
So, Calm kicks the package off, reworking his own "Mellow Mellow Sadness" into "Mellow Mellow Acid", a sweet and subtle deep house blend with jazzy Rhodes chords, precise percussion and a gentle acid line emerging from the tumbling drums. Warm and breezy, this is midday music for beach bars, boat parties and Mediterranean excursions.
Golf Channel and International Feel disco duo Mind Fair step up to flip ‘My Home Town’ into a long legged and gorgeously hazy downtempo disco bomb. The chords shimmer and shine, retaining every bit of Japanese romanticism, while that relaxed rhythm will have people swaying for days, eyes closed, hearts open and full of love.
Two beautiful originals, reworked with passion, pride and respect - don't be surprised if this 12" becomes the soundtrack of your summer.
Patrick says: After that brilliant bonus 7" from Kito Jempere last week, Hell Yeah keep it coastal with this superb remix 12" of Calm's stunning "By Your Side" LP. On the A-side the Japanese producer takes on his own track, upping the acid and transforming 'Mellow Mellow Sadness' into a sunkissed slice of deep house, while Mind Fair flip "My Home Town" on the flip, delivering a proper Balearic disco dreamboat.
