Caroline True Records Release Remixed Punk-Funk/Leftfield Classics!
Two classic Post-Punk singles, Faith and Metronome, are taken and given a contemporary make-over by several of the best remixers on the contemporary dancefloor block.
1 Metronome (Cousin Cole Remix 2-5)
2 Faith (Pocketknife’s Sax in the City Remix)
3 Faith (Jon Da Silva’s Remix)
4 Moscow 1980 (Wedderkopp + Taylor’s Lost In Georgia Mix)
5 Faith (Jon Da Silva’s Everyday Edit)
Radical and very danceable reworks of key tracks from the Manicured Noise album Northern Stories 1978/80, from the legendary Jon Da Silva (The Hacienda) Pocketknife + Cousin Cole (Brooklyn NYC DJ Party Supremos) and new North Wales/Midlands production axis Wedderkopp and Taylor. Remixed from the original mastertapes.
This is where an original blueprint for Punk-Funk gets taken for a magic carpet ride from Manchester’s seminal 80’s club the Hacienda , to the 21C dancefloor of NYC where Cole and Pocketknife regularly rock the lofts of Brooklyn and beyond.
Metronome gets an irresistible and compulsive dancefloor workout from Cousin Cole; whilst his partner in crime lauded NYC producer and DJ Pocketknife shapes the Northern Soul flavoured Faith into a new party friendly form with his Sax In The City Remix.
Both Pocketknife and Cousin Cole have creatively remixed and re-edited a wide range of artists from folkster Joanna Newsom, through to Feist, Kanye West, Alphabeat and Paul Simon. The recent Canyon Dancing 12" drew much applause.
Jon Da Silva knew Manicured Noise back in the day, and brings a fans discerning ear to his rework of Faith. Complete with added keyboards, this is a Housey-Balearic raver of the first order.
Meanwhile, Wedderkopp and Taylor take the instrumental Moscow 1980 and imbue the track with plenty of Cold War paranoia and strange twists. .
"Dancefloor Post-Punk gear of the highest order"..
(Feel My Bicep)
"Somehow (Cousin Cole ) gives this number that oh-so-cool tropical / tech house sound thats all over the show at the moment while making it sound equally relevant against the output of modern day dance funk outfits ala Friendly Fires… superb(Contort Yourself)
