jamie lloyds sophomore album gets remixed by some of our favourite newcomers and older legends. tuff city kids are gerd janson from running back and phillip lauer from arto mwambe and brontosaurus. as expected these two come up with something unexpected, think bobby orlando.
talented australian newcomer jamie lloyd continues his upward trajectory with his debut album trouble within released internationally in september following two successful eps in 2006. the album has been getting the remix treatment from some of our favourite producers ahead of its global release with the first 12 to surface featuring remixes from berlin duo trickski (sonar kollektiv) and zwicker (compost black label)
ep of low-slung disco grooves, vocal cutups and great songwriting showing another side of this talented australian artist. new yorks brennan green opens proceedings with his movin out remix, a tasty 8 minute slab of disco space funk with slippery squelching lead synth runs and cheeky breakdowns throughout
the title track is an epic electro disco burner, blossoming with cool sounds, rolling basslines and freaky riffs. the track immediately appealed to our finnish friends putsch 79 who lay on the funk in their remix, complete with their trademark cheeky synth stabs, a killer bassline and clever key changes. perhaps saving the best to last is the 45rpm flip night panda, a straighter workout that transforms into a rolling electro house killer
