Jesse Saunders ft The Force – It’s OK (2021) – Broken Records

Originally released back in 1986 Jesse Saunders now revisits the number with a fired-up, fresh enthusiasm. Featuring several interpretations covering all sorts of angles this feels very much more than a re-release, more like something new for 2021. Col Lawton’s addictive remix begins with insistent keys peppering the grooves full of excitable energy. Next is Mike Dunn’s deeper, equally captivating techno flavoured BlackBall version, followed by Jerome Baker’s brilliant Originator remix capturing the essence of the past reworking it with contemporary fervour. A loose funkiness is then crafted by the Thommy Davis & Sahib Muhammad Battery Acid Remix, leaving further takes by Rubber People & Jay B McCauley, Scottie Soul & Sen-Sei, and BB Hayes to all work magic.

R3V3S ft Angelala – Deeper – Broken Records

Located in-between the gentle wash of spine-tingling Rhodes and Angelala’s sensuous vocal is the soul of this latest release on Jesse Saunders, Broken Records. Accompanied by an unfussy arrangement of punchy drums and smouldering bass this feels just right for the arrival of breezy late nights/ early mornings. Col Lawton then adds a tougher rhythm section to his remix while retaining the emotive flavour of the original, leaving the BB Hayes Tech House version to syncopate the bassline adding even more weight to the production.

Release: February 24
