When Oliver had completed his debut album ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ back in 2018, we were about to release it on Industry Standard, before the mighty Classic Music Company swooped in to sign it, and released it in spring 2019. During this time Oliver had commissioned a series of remixes from his homies, and now with Classic Music’s blessing we are able to release these remixes here on Industry Standard.
This is the second of 3 remix EP’s in the ‘Another Day Another Dollar Reconstructed’ series. Vol.1 saw Todd Edwards, Demarkus Lewis & Sinistarr, take the reigns. Now we have Christian Nielsen, JR From Dallas & Peter Croce stepping up to show us their takes on these tracks. We set things off with our Play It Down label mate Christian Nielsen’s remix of the album opener ‘Sampling’ from Oli & Gene Farris. Christian takes a direct dancefloor approach jacking up what was originally a slo-mo spoken word mood setter. This is a charged up filtered house banger that has a nod to a DJ Sneak &
Armand sound from back in the day. A solid approach for the material being remixed.
Next up we have JR from Dallas, who takes on remix duties of Oliver’s ‘Outer Drive’. The
original album track was a more sedate 103bpm jazzy down tempo jam, but JR has come with his own vibe on a deep Chicago House tip. He’s beefed up the beats and has up tripping on his groove throughout his remix. It’s one for late night heads.
Finally, we have Detroit’s Peter Croce delivering a signature low slung remix of the blue’s house track ‘The Delta’ from Oli’s collaborators Matthew K, and Daddy Hemingway. This remix takes a lovely groove driven approach that grows over the course of the track using Daddy’s vocals under a build of Peter’s own additional keys.
Another wonderful remix in this evolving body of reconstructions.
Keep your ears pricked for Vol.3 coming in October
