about

Geordie soul crew Smoove & Turrell are a prime example of artists that excel at releasing music in the album format. Five LPs deep they are still producing exciting and challenging albums that have the winning combination of song-craft with tunes that makes you want to dance while also lyrically contain a deeper message.

Their album ‘Mount Pleasant’ typified this as they came correct with a storming collection of tracks spanning a wide variety of influences including 80’s electronica, jazz, blues and rock alongside their usual funk and soul sensibilities. Now they return with the first of two album remix releases for your listening pleasure…

Russian producer Valique contributed a blinding mix of ‘There For Me’ to Volume 1 of this series and he continues the good work with another useful rework of ‘You’re Gone’. He masterfully transforms the disco grooves of the original into a playful concoction of samba infused, funky house in this ‘Rephrased Dub’ that’s guaranteed to get pulses racing.

Fellow Jalapen-ites and overall DJ beasts - The Allergies were absolutely itching to get their mitts on the stems for ‘You’re Gone’. And we’re really happy they did as their remix mutates John Turrell and Izo FitzRoy’s stunning duet into a full on 60’s soul hoedown. Complete with handclaps, horns and “C’mon!” vocals, how can you not? C’mon! And there’s an instrumental version of it too. C’mon!

Last but not least is another standout track on ‘Mount Pleasant’ – the track ‘Billie’. Multi-instrumentalist and producer - Flevans tastefully revises it into a shimmering slice of alternative pop with some understated instrumentation. He successfully manages to spotlight Turrell’s storytelling vocal style while complementing it with some deft touches behind the boards. The perfect way end to this collection.
