On one hand, there’s house-soul-electronica veterans from Iceland, Gus Gus who released a beautiful
and rather impressive tech house effort titled ‘Arabian Horse’ last year. On the other, there’s a house/IDM producer from Malta who’s had releases on DJ legend John Digweed’s label Bedrock. (Amongst others.) He’s Deepfunk.
Possibly the best thing happened: Deepfunk published an unofficial remix from ‘Selfoss’, the opener from ‘Arabian Horse’. Now it’s evident, that the original is no short epicness and wit but the remix has a clever twist in it, a notched up beat here, some clicks and clacks over there and we have a version suitable for radio play (at least in those late-night DJ mixes they all have nowadays) as well as e.g. running.
Being unofficial, the remix can be listened to as well as downloaded on Soundcloud, and here on Sound Arkive as well.
(Pretty much more on Gus Gus coming soon!)
