About this item
Taken from Bryony Jarman-Pinto’s critically acclaimed debut LP ‘Cage and Aviary’, “Sour Face” focusses on the wider frustrations of everyday life; “of break ups, environmental issues, the album and myself” she confesses.
Here the track gets rehauled by Dego in three ways. First up is his main remix, a shuffling, syncopated disco funk version turned to the neon with optimistic synth vamps and nudged into the club via a wriggling, acid tinged sequencer. On the 2000Black remix, the tempo drops to a soulful bump, the gorgeous vocal reinforced and future proofed with gliding electronics for the early doors DJ. An instrumental mix of Dego's main mix closes out the A-side, taking me right into the middle of Keep It Unreal's polite mosh pit!
The flip offers a selection of beautifully recorded as-live sessions of album tracks from the songwriter and vocalist, performed with a full band at London’s legendary Fish Factory Studios. “The sessions were meant to feel live, like a performance.” Bryony explains, “All the musicians have put their ideas into the songs, transporting them to somewhere beyond the album versions and allowing them to take on a new life”.
