Ahead of the release of Honey Dijon’s upcoming remix album ‘Xtra’, Maurice Fulton, Ashley Beedle, Derrick Carter and Horse Meat Disco step up to remix records from Honey’s debut full-length work ‘The Best Of Both Worlds’. On the A-side is Honey Dijon featuring Joi Cardwell ‘State of Confusion’, Maurice Fulton giving it a New Jersey-esque lilt and allowing Joi’s voice to resonate. Next up Ashley Beedle ups the tempo and the energy on his mix of ‘Burn’, Honey’s collaboration with Tim K featuring Jason Walker. Derrick Carter cranks the pressure on ‘Catch The Beat’, crunching out the bassline for an extended industrial backdrop to Cakes da Killa’s rap vocals. In stark contrast, the final B-side is a Horse Meat Disco mix of Honey and Tim K’s cover of Aquarian Dream, ‘Look Ahead’ featuring the voice of Sam Sparro. With all the warmth of a sunny afternoon in the city, the London collective funk the cover all the way up, adding horn blasts for more of a house strut. Giving a glimpse of what’s to come from the full-length ‘Xtra’, this is the ultimate vinyl fix from Honey and friends to tide you over.
