About this item

Finally, Wolf Music answer my prayers and unleash the full 12" mixes from Medlar's excellent "Sleep" LP.  We're treated to the soul, jazz and gospel sampling beatdown of "Tides" and "Tap Spring" in extended (nicely mixable) format, as well as a shimmering nu disco mix of "Tides" from Kon, and a clanking tech house rework of "Listen" from Wolf music stalwarts Greymatter. Kon's first at the mixing desk, smoothing out the thump and rumble of Medlar's live drums and bass in favour of a precision engineered drum track and subby dubby bassline Soul Clap would be proud of. The strings and pads he adds offer a glimpse of a Pet Shop Boys melody which quickly vanishes in the mirror ball's spin. Powerhouse nu disco that's gonna rock 'em in Croatia this summer. On the flip, Greymatter go in harder than we're used to hearing them, with their rubbery tech house take on "Listen". Their effortlessly tasteful use of a sampler still features, with excellent offbeat vocals and skittering hats, but the reverb heavy mix and dubby beat make this one the perfect thing to spin next to your LoShea collection. I reckon this'll be a massive Sheffield record.
