Especial introduced the well respected Phil Gerus to its famed halls. "Still Blind" welds boogie, electro and proto-house music into a emotive, cosmic dancefloor stew that should find favour right across the board.
Electric enough to be nocturnal, soulful enough for the discotheque and arranged perfectly, "Still Blind" has A N T H E M subtly written into its fresh grooves. I wouldn't be surprised to hear synth-jizz extraordinaire Il Bosco reaching into his pockets and shelling out for this new explosion!
So good it leaves the rest of the record for remixes, Philip Lauer & Jamie Paton conjure up very contrasting versions...Lauer opts for a more Italo-tinged edge to proceedings, but keeps those classic 80s drum machines and synths firing on all cylinders. Jamie Paton meanwhile throws a digital blanket over the source material, bringing in right up to date with a minimal house / late night Balearic feel that again, should find fans in a variety of music camps.
