Legendary club figure Ashley Beedle and enigmatic Swedish dancefloor don Opolopo you say ? – all well and good - we’ll get to them in a moment - but did you say The Porters are on the mix ? The Geordie legend, one man haircut revival, band mascot and hands down most entertaining keyboard player in the world - Mike Porter?
Yep – that’s what we said. Digging into his treasure trove of vintage synths – even the ones his missus doesn’t know he’s bought, the man like Porter delivers a storming remix of authentic cosmic disco goodness. Check out the video for Will You Be Mine soon to be premiered in which Mike is the main star even eclipsing the charismatic duo of Smoove & Turrell on this occasion.
Extremely honourable mentions go to Ashley Beedle who has turned in a cracker of a mix keeping all the vibe of the original while toughening up the bottom end and turning it into an absolute club stomper. Opolopo takes it down a Boogie Disco route and shows why the remixer credited with introducing Gregory Porter to the dancefloor with his outstanding remix of “1960 what” is so in demand.
