It’s the third and final volume of remixes of cuts from See-I‘s album Knowledge Shine Bright – but what to call it? Hmm – Knowledge Shine Bright Remixed EP 3 perhaps? Good – glad that’s sorted – and now to business. Empresarios kick things off by taking the eastern-influenced sound of Musical Murder uptempo and giving it a jaunty tropical breaks feel while in the middle of the release – lie two remixes of reggae-house number Chase. Obviously there’s only one correct way to remix a house track and that’s to make it not a house track. Hats off to AfroQBen then who does the right thing with his dub twist on the original and hats quite enough to Sol Power All Stars who thought it was a good idea to keep the house and add afrobeat touches. The project is closed (appropriately enough) with a dreamily dubby take on original LP closer – the ethereal Candice Mills-featuring closer, Revolution. See? A’aight!
