The SUOL Mix compilation "Suol Mates" is born and Fritz Kalkbrenner starts this series in
2012 with the first edition. This 12" Includes the two exclusive tracks featured on the mix ...
On A1 we find "Ruby Lee" by Fritz Kalkbrenner. A cover version of the all time classic from Bill Withers. Inspired by the original version Fritz replayed the rhodes, strings, bassline and of course re-recorded the vocals. Fritz managed to give the old soul vibe of the '74 version a modern feel, turning it into something for the floor as well as home listening.
On B1 we have SUOL head honchos Chopstick & Johnjon with an edit of the Henrik Schwarz Remix for "Right In The Dark". Fritz wanted Henriks remix on the compilation since day one, but it never really fit ... so he asked Chopstick & Johnjon to sit down with the stems and do an exclusive edit. Satisfying not only Fritz but also enthusing Henrik this one made it into a lot of crates around the world already.

Kalkbrenner does an excellent job imitating a classic. This Edit of a Remix is awesome too.
Chords are little too stabby for me at the end but I'm sure in the right context both of these tracks would be huge."
