thatmanmonkz featuring Nikki-O – Ooh Wee Remixed – Classic Music Company

You may recognise Ooh Wee from earlier in the year but believe me chances are these fresh versions will make you jump to attention all over again. Beginning with Norm Talley’s excellent, outstanding remix which pitches crazed, jazzy piano inflections against harsh, splashing hi-hats alongside commanding voices plus strident kicks and cowbell. Simple and yet utterly explosive. Next, SoulPhiction reinterprets via smoky electric piano, more soulful hints of vocal amid a generally warmer rendition which also introduces the enviable Disco reference.

Release: November 16



Dave Aju & Thatmanmonkz feat Foxxee – They Sleep We Love – MFF (Music For Freaks)

Warning: the message contained here feels somewhere between an exalted prayer and an explosive revolutionary tract. Either way you’ll love the brilliant, stunning intent. Afterall, Attitude is most welcome in these days of safe, boring box ticking. So it’s not surprising to say that the music smoulders, sounding dark and heavy, as the voices proudly proclaim the testament. This most definitely is, in a word of three syllables, excellent. There’s nothing much else to say. Listen to the record.

Release: July 20
