November 27th sees the release of a slice of very special heavyweight 12″ vinyl featuring 5 remixes of stand out tracks from Paul Weller’s recent critically acclaimed No 1 album On Sunset.
This limited edition eclectic collection of remixers were chosen by Paul himself, with all the reworkings creating a fresh twist on the original tracks.
One of the singles originally taken from On Sunset, the sublime More, is given an other-worldly dreamy remix by Skeleton Key, which is an alias for James Skelly of Liverpool band The Coral.
Senegalese drummer Seckou Keita creates a beautifully stripped back version of Rockets featuring his added vocals and sparkling delicate strings, whilst acclaimed psych-folk singer Jane Weaver also plays with Rockets but gives it a completely different mind-bending trippy feel.
Welsh songstress and synth player Gwenno contructs a minimalist and atmospheric sound on Old Father Thyme creating a trance-like and abstract version. Le SuperHomard, who’s singer, Julie Gros, appeared as guest vocalist on More, gives the album’s title track their own special French je ne sais quoi which conjures up disco balls in plush nightclubs.
Tracklisting as follows:
1. More – Skeleton Key Remix
2. Old Father Tyme – Gwenno Remix
3. Rockets – Seckou Keita Remix
4. On Sunset – Le SuperHomard Mix
5. Rockets – Jane Weaver / Mind Control Mix
