VAZ, Andy - Different Times/You Got (remixes)

VAZ, Andy - Different Times/You Got (remixes) (Yore Germant) Comentários: Already up to its sixteenth release, Yore keeps rolling on. This time with a superb set of Andy Vaz remixes. Four Yore artists tackle Vaz’s originals on Different Times-You Got Remixes, and in doing so offer a wide stylistic range. With the remixers being Trus’me, Lerosa, Rick Wade and .Xtrak, it comes no surprise that the results just simply keep bursting with talent. Starting with Trus’me (Manchester-based David James Wolstencroft) gets things moving with a funky “Bygone Times” Acid-House makeover replete with a strong grooving electrifying 303 bass line providing a high-velocity propulsion, strings, claps, and a percolating groove that really kicks in when Alton Miller’s soulful vocal appears. Synthetic strings add an elegant touch while disco hit-hats flirt with your ears. “Hurry, Hurry” receives two treatments, the first by Lerosa and the second by Rick Wade. Lerosa works up a trippy lather with a slick weave of vocal loops and a stepping dance pulse. The intricate vocal effects are sweetly funky but it’s the subtly electrified funk rhythm that’s most affecting. Anything but a wallflower, Wade roars in with his customary slamming beats to wholly recast Vaz’s original. The tune lunges forward with Wade draping its muscular groove with electric piano chords, Moog flourishes, and synthetic strings. The breakdown arrives two-thirds of the way through just like you knew it would, after which Wade ups the beat ante to drive the now stripped-down track home. Todd Sines twists “You Got” into cubistic shape that’s very much in keeping with his viral .xtrak techno style. Splattering chopped vocal fragments over a slinky, snare-popping groove, Sines’ remix is clearly the wildest of the four. No surprise to us, .Xtrak always knew how to Jack, from early 7th City to recent Yore Days. See you on the Dance-floor. in wordandsound [Para Ouvir/Samples]
