Another head scratcher for you – didn’t Skeewiff ‘do’ a breakbeat version of mambo classic Sway way back in the early 00s? They did! So what’s this – a remix? Actually no – but before we get to that, let’s clarify that it is the latest single to be released off their forthcoming Something Like That album due 8 March on which they apply themselves to knocking out versions of key tracks that have inspired their production career. And so to this which is definitely not a remix but an all-new version of what was originally called Quien Sera and subsequently Sway after the original Spanish lyrics and content were switched for English language ones for a version by the ‘King of Cool’ – Dean Martin. For this one, they’ve drafted in a female singer, slowed the tempo, ditched the big beat-style drums and returned to a Latin-style mambo shuffle amid strings and horns. An altogether more saucy affair, it’s so smouldering you could probably cook spuds in the embers. Phwooar etc. etc.
