Taken from ‘Low-Fi Classics’, the debut album by Lisbon-based producer Mr Bird and UK vocalist Greg Blackman, ‘Over Again’ has won fans the world over thanks to its sun-drenched and infectious soul stylings. Championed by UK legend Ashley Beedle, the track was recently issued on super-limited vinyl via Jo Wallace’s Ramrock Blue label complete with a special version by ‘Godfather of the Disco 12″‘ Tom Moulton. Although Moulton’s mix is exclusive to the (already hard to find) 12″ release, we’ve secured a delightful selection of remixes for the track’s BBE release.
Commencing our expanded package is the version which first brought ‘Over Again’ international acclaim. Ashley Beedle’s ‘North Street Mix’ is typically soulful and smooth, with one eye on the dance-floor. Laid-back hand-claps and shimmering strings provide a backdrop for jazzy keys and a killer disco-flavoured bassline. Introducing itself with latin keys and jazzy guitar licks, Lisbon’s Gilles Cardoni’s remix lays down a rock-solid House groove complete with sun-drenched latin keys. Sam Palmer’s ‘Unplugged’ mix switches up the chords beautifully, re-imagining ‘Over Again’ as a smooth jazz record with a distinctly Balearic sunset feel. The original album version and an instrumental are also included for those who missed this highly addictive song the first time around.
