Crazy P meet Appleblim for some Bristol 2 step soul and deep dark dub.
Fact magazine hit the nail on the head when they interviewed Laurie Appleblim recently
"Not only is he one of the UK’s greatest modern dance producers – as one half of the team behind Skull Disco he helped shape dubstep’s dark side, with a plethora of classics both solo and collaborative to his name, and in more recent times has honed his focus on curating one of Bristol’s most consistent labels in Applepips - but he’s also got great taste in all fields, and has a way with words that few others possess."
In short he is an amazing producer and an absolute diamond with it, and he's produced a couple of stunning remixes of 'Changes'.
Already a self confessed fan of the track (he included it on a dj mix for Fact) he was the perfect choice when it came to remixes. On this release we see two distinct sides to his personality, the 'Bristol Soul' mix channels the spirit of classic Soul II Soul and early Massive Attack but places it within the current crop of Bristol house mutations that follows on from his awesome 'Moonlight' track.
The 'Deep Under dub' is one for dark, dub club manoeuvres that seems custom built for fabric or 9am at the Panorama Bar, I can't wait to hear this one on a proper system.
