'A collection of four mixes exploring the discipline that is dancefloor jazz and the results are simply out of the stratosphere' DJ Magazine
Following the very warmly-received release of Alan Accelerates, the Butti 49 guys return to the fold with another hot selection of new remixes, lovingly presented together for your listening pleasure.
Flying is undoubtedly one of our favourite cuts from the duo's Habit album - a smooth, slinky and seductive track which carries its depth and quality with deceptive ease. It features the distinctive and sublime vocals of Emo, who is renowned for his vocal work with Boozoo Bajou, DJ Vadim, Les Gammas, Strike Boys, Nu Spirit Helsinki... Ooooh well just about everybody who is anybody! And his own touch of class to the track
This remix bundle sees Stavanger/London all-round renegade and wild man King Knut turn in a surprisingly lanquid take on the track - in fact we could go as far as to say it's a downtempo gem. This version has also (briefly) seen the light of day on a limited edition one sided 7", all copies of which were rapidly snapped up. So we're very happy to be able to make it more widely available
Meanwhile we head into foot tapping and head nodding territory, as Cosa Nostra step in and up the tempo by a notch or three for a vibrant and dynamic re-working. Both versions successfully combine the tricky tasks of bringing together a fresh take on the music without totally losing sight of the original.
The package is rounded off by the ever-so-rare first version, which the '49ers originally considered putting out before eventually deciding on the (arguably more polished) album mix of the track.
