DIGITAL RELEASE – 8th APRIL 2013
Following the success of the Record Store Day collaboration with the legendary Fashion Records, NICE UP! return with another 2 classic cuts from the vaults – remixed and refashioned for 2013!
First up, East London’s Wrongtom takes time out of his packed schedule to rework the massive “Incredible” by General Levy. Universally loved, very few people know it was originally recorded as a dancehall number, then later remixed in a jungle style by M-Beat for chart success around the globe. It is a tune that has traversed genres and ages and still smashes any dance to this day. Wrongtom takes it back to the source with a fresh bumping reggae riddim featuring live instrumentation and his trademark dub fx.
Over on the flip, rising star of the reggae world Mr Benn gives his spin on the modern dancehall sound with a dancefloor pleasing remix of Cutty Ranks “As You See It”. Probably one of Cutty’s lesser known tracks, this also found its home in the jungle raves of the mid 90s when sampled extensively by the producers of the day. Taking his cues from classic 90s dancehall producers such as Dave Kelly and Bobby Digital, this remix showcases the producers talents perfectly and should NICE UP! any dance!
This release will form part of a full album of remixes from the Fashion back catalogue, expected later in the year.
