An artist album must be in the making, really. andhim’s last single ‘Melte’ was fun, but ultimately forgettable when compared to ‘Boy Boy Boy’ or anything else they touched previously. Melte wasn’t really a dip, but I’d still consider this remix a return to form, because it’s been too long since they released a proper smash.
The rework of ‘Not This Time’ by fellow good vibrations house maestros The 2 Bears confidently dips its toes in a palette I’d normally associate with artists like Henrik Schwarz – not just in sounds, but also (and impressively so) in execution. The warm, rhythmic funk reminds equal parts of Innervisions as it does of Schwarz’s evergreen remix of Omar’s ‘Feeling You‘. It’s a bit more restrained than their usual balls-out approach, but I can’t say I disapprove.
