Flash Atkins has pulled in Charlie Sinclair, singer from one of Manchester’s hottest new bands, Sylvette for a collaboration that promises to be the start of something special. The track has already been gathering heat, with Bill Brewster calling it ‘one of his favourite house records of 2017’ and reports of it rocking ALFOS and The Warehouse Project.
The original has a throbbing sub over clipped techy drums, muted guitar and an incessant Moog riff. But the killer punch is Charlie Sinclair’s soulful, intimate vocals that sit beautifully over the music. The groove is locked and builds to the break where a hint of disco hits the floor before the final section brings in the bells to devastating effect. The end result is a track that is destined to knock socks off in the coming months. You were warned.
Sean Johnston liked it so much he asked to do a remix and the result is everything you would expect from the Hardway Brothers. He keeps the original elements but toughens things up with added oomph, taking it in a proto house and techno direction.
Finally Tal M. Klein strips the track back to it’s bare basics with devastating effect. Just a kick, the guitar and serious compression provide space for the tripped out vocal and a truly psychedelic deep house experience.
