This new International Feel Recordings reference opens with the original ‘We Start Over’ by Steve Cobby & Trudie Dawn Smith, where relaxed melodies created by Steve Cobby take us on a trip something tropical and balearic/downtempo atmospheres, with some organic percussions, sounds of birds and the voice of Trudie Dawn Smith who gives a touch more sensual and magic to the composition. The first remix, signed by Apiento & LX, offer us a reconstruction of the original track, amazing remix, slowing the tempo, increasing the sound of club, the darkness of the cut, with 8 minutes of slow, steady combustion and a bomb for the dancefloor, with a development that hypnotizes us, with some acid touches, analogues firing lasers on the dance floor.
On the other hand, the respected Gerd Janson & Phillip Lauer aka Tuff City Kids sign 2 remixes, first with ‘Private Acid Mix’, with a classic house sound, the 303 firing acid, an acid crude and forceful, a new vocals, loop vocals, a remix to enjoy at the club; and the second remix, ‘Garage Dub’, shows a classic House of New York, totally old school, that takes us back mentally to other times and classic discoteques.
