After 2 solo releases respectively on Soulvent last year, Jack ‘Pola’ Higgins and Harry Bryson decided to team up. Back in April the pair released their first EP as a duo, simply entitled ‘The Music’. This understated 4 track release has received an impressive response, with support from Rinse FM, Mistajam, Technimatic, London Elektricity, SPY, Etherwood, Fred V and Grafix… The list goes on. We therefore decided to let the rest of the Soulvent camp fight tooth and nail over the stems. The outcome results in remixes from Phaction, GLXY, Arch Origin and T & Sugah.
GLXY return to apply their trademark sound to ‘The Music’. Cleverly sampling portions of the original track, they totally re-imagine it’s liquid roller beginnings, turning it into a veritable bass playground.
Phaction meanwhile injects Bristolian flavour into ‘Stolen Glances’ ft. Sammie Bella with soft pads, a seriously jazzy piano lick and crisp drum pattern. Tipping it’s cap to the original, this softer remix shows Phaction’s composure as a producer and a welcome first foray on Soulvent.
Daniel Van Mourik AKA Arch Origin turns his hand to ‘Bad Habit’. With some ‘Take Me Away’-esque bassline work and tight drum grooves he turns up a win with this remix.
Finally T & Sugah round off the 4 track with their take on ‘Walk Away’. The intro sees rhythmic plucky synths building energy, making way for the pitched down original vocal & a massive dance floor filler of a drop!
The Remix EP proves to be as much of a package deal as Pola & Bryson’s original offering. Breathing new life into an already fresh release – All of us at Soulvent Records are proud to present The Remix EP.
