Souvenir #58 Cock Robin (Mr.G’s RA Dub) / Toni’s Pipe Out Now

souvenir58_fb_2

Since 2004 Chris Wood has been working as a successful producer and remixer for labels including Souvenir, Below, Moon Harbour, Pressure Traxx, Kindisch and MurMur and in 2009 he started working with his long-time friend, fellow producer and co-owner of Freebase Records in Frankfurt, Meat (Carsten Schuchmann). Coming just a short time after the release of his collated singles collection, Retrospective, the first track on this new 12” from Chris Wood & Meat comes courtesy of deep house don, Mr. G. His remix provides a sparse take on the original ‘Cock Robin,’ jacking straight ahead into a hardhitting house rhythm, complete with finger-clicks and vocal stabs. A definite dance-floor roller. On the flip, the duo have provided a brand new cut, ‘Tony’s Pipe,’ which rattles with drilling percussion and soaks itself in a modulating, acid-tinged synth line, all built around emerging, muffled vocal samples.

5 Questions with Jules & Moss

Hi Jules & Moss, hope you’re doing well. Trying to classify your new song “My Brain Says Two” is incredibly difficult – the single’s title track leads off the release with a deep kick and some cosmic chords. Is there any reason you chose this song in particular to kick the EP off?
The title of the track resumes well the whole EP. We’ve worked on a style a little bit hybrid, mixing difference influences, for this release. Also, this track means a lot of emotions for us, and so a good start for the EP.
