DESCRIPTION

The Black 80s make a long overdue return to Freerange following their 2014
release Move On (from which the Kollektiv Turmstrasse remix become
something of an underground anthem). The duo hailing from Montreal and
consisting of Hollis P Monroe and Overnite have been responsible for some
seriously influential tracks over the years, not least Hollis’ bonafide
classic from 1997 - I’m Lonely.
For The Rest is a slice of sultry, stripped back house heaven which drips
with soul and will melt the hearts of all who hear it. The key to the
tracks beauty is in the minimalism of the production keeping everything
paired back to the bare bones and placing all the focus on Overnite’s
vocal which twists and mutates thanks to some clever use of FX.
Who better to work their magic on the remix than German producer Show-B
who comes fresh off his incredible Jaap Ligthart Remix and Washint EP on
his own Lossless label . Here he pushes the original through his sonic
mangle, injecting steely atmospherics and layers of synths to forge a
driving, muscular version which will sit perfectly amongst the sounds of
Dixon, Mano et al and has already been getting early spins from Amé.
A second remix from Carlos Sanchez completes the package (on the digital
version) staying truer to the original vibe but adding delicate pads and
whispering strings for some late night bliss.
