Paul Waller The Rayka remixes are the absolute bomb! Reminiscent of late '80s acid house. Would love to hear more from these guys. They're a French duo, that's all I know. The Fouk remix of Fade Away is sublime too - check out the house keyboard chords. Favorite track: E.P. (Rayka Remix).

Though long lauded as one of the UK’s top bands in funk and soul circles, Stratos Bleu was a decidedly rawer analogue affair drawing on influences as diverse as Detroit techno, Bristol bass as well as the party starting breakbeat funk they are so well known for.

#1 position in the Official UK Dance Charts on release week and the Album of the Day accolade from BBC 6 Music proved the band were entirely right and now, the crew of larger than life North East musicians are back for more with a slew of fantastic remixes from some top tier talent.

So far luminaries including Hot Toddy, Ray Mang, Ashley Beedle and Steve Cobby as well as hot rising talent Sorley have remixed the album.

Next up is the turn of Dutch electronic powerhouses Fouk and new UK act Rayka.

Fouk (Daniel Leseman & Hans Peeman of Junktion fame) have been on fire since joining forces with releases on Heist, Boogie Angst, Razon N Tape as well as their own Outplay Records. Their driving melodic take on classic house has swiftly seen them rise the ranks of the best producers in the world. Their remix on Fade Away turns it into an absolute dancefloor melter.

Rayka is a new production duo from the NE of England with their heads firmly in the future of music production but an undeniable respect for the analogue savagery of original acid house. The pair asked to remix hometown heroes Smoove & Turrell and when supplied with the parts turned in two bass bin blowing, low frequency overload mixes of EP and This Time.
