Crazy P

Remixed

With a forthcoming album due in stores very soon, 2020 Vision is proud to drop a killer remix package of Crazy P this January. Taking tracks from the forthcoming release and pressing together some of the finest remixes from reputable talents like Burnski, Bonar Bradberry, and Wolf + Lamb; 2020 Vision brings the vinyl only Remixed EP. Following up the Heartbreaker [Remixes] in late 2012 with underground stars Huxley and Mark E on remix duties, the label now displays its undeniable A&R skills once again. Pulling in the services of four top-notch artists, the delivery is nothing but tasteful and intelligent reworks of the British band.

Leeds born Burnski is first up with his mix of Beatbox, a slightly more funk-laden direction from his usual deep house vibes. He opts for a soulful, slow-mo disco feel embracing the charm of the original cut putting his mark on the track with warm synths and shuffling drums. PBR Streetgang member Bonar Bradberry is second on the bill with his take on Eruption. Being in very high demand as of late, Bonar provides a heavy hypnotic rework infused with warmth and plenty of energy. Skillfully layering snippets of the original cut vocals, Bradberry creates a peak-time heavy hitter for the clubs.

Wrapping up the release, New York’s contemporary electronic tastemakers Wolf + Lamb feat. Slow Hands; bring their niche sound to We Can Only Be Who We Are. With off-kilter broken drums, guitar chords and staccato licks running alongside a walking style bass line and gospel-like vocals the smooth and classy interpretation again proves the group’s deserved fame. As an exclusive vinyl only release, the additional quality of mixes featured is one that should be shared across all mediums of music today. Bumping out another outstanding release, 2020 Vision shows clear signs that 2013 will be yet another stellar year from the imprint.
