Exactly a year ago we released our first collaboration with John Spring, the Benzo EP which included three phat floorburners, featuring that classic Spring sound. We are really proud to present you with outstanding remixes for each of these.
The first person on board was none other than Mr. Mike Huckaby himself. Spring and Huckaby being fellow Native Instruments workers and contributors, the project possessed an instant appeal to the Detroit-based producer. Fresh from a series of outstanding project, including Tresor’s 20th Anniversary compilation, the 2nd volume of his Sun Ra Reel To Reel edits and an outstanding 10″ on Sushitech, Huckaby’s mix is a fresh burst of pure groove.
The second ones to be selected for their participation, were Felix Dickinson and Jaime Read from England. Felix Dicksinson is a man of many guises. Also known as Foolish from duo Foolish & Sly, he has been running the Cynic label since 2004 – Dickinson is also one of the best disco re-editers the old continent has to offer. Long time production partner Jaime Read is well known for his mid ’90s productions, many of which got simply stolen by Joe Lewis and released on Target and Relief. Together they call themselves LHAS Inc., the Larry Heard Appreciation Society.
