We’re going all hill billy on you & keeping it in the family, both musically and literally, with our next EP. We’ve just been treated to the masters for the ‘Vipertones Remixes EP’ which have just landed at Viper HQ (yeah how James Bond villain does that sound!!!). Firstly is a splendid deep bumpy house rework of ‘Mean Lover’ by Part Time Heroes (Laura’s brother Tobe being part of the duo) which sees the lads taking the shaking-fist-at-lover power soul epic and giving it a suave twist for the discos. Chasing a similar dancefloor vibe in my trademark home-made-cheap-as-chips broken style Diesler (Beatmaker/co-producer/tea maker for the Vipertones – and also speaking in the 3rd person oddly) remixes ‘Roof Off’ – taking the aggressive party anthem of the original and stripping it of full vocals and slapping it where it shouldn’t to give it a bit of extra booty shake. Completing the EP is an extended edit of ‘Roof Off’ which is lovingly chopped up and carefully glued back together by non other than Phil Martin (Drums/engineer/production/taxi for the Vipertones) giving the funk & nu jazz DJs a little more to share with the worn out legs if the dancefloor.
Already causing a buzz wherever they have been played (in my bedroom thus far) they are great footnote to the original songs from the LP. I know. Profound. The EP hits the streets (both people shops and robot shops) soon we hope and we’ll sling them in the music player soon to hopefully whip your interest into making it yours!! Thanks for the love.
