Sid Le Rock, 'Bag Of Bliss' (James Teej Super Eight Remix) by My Favorite Robot Records published on 2014/03/12 16:27:12 +0000 Following on from the first remix package featuring Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s, Space Ranger and Fairmont, My Favorite Robot Records serve up a second selection of remixes of Sid Le Rock’s fantastic fifth album, ‘Busted With a Bag of Bliss’. This time out it’s sometime Cocoon man Tim Green, label regular James Teej, Metope, Aaron Santos and Seexah who get the nod. Seexah is in fact the winner of a recent remix context the label held on Beatport, but more than holds his own against the more established artists here. First though it is Tim Green, who recently started his own label Disc Over Music, who remixes ‘Nomads’. In the process he draws out the track into a wavy, spine tingling affair with a nicely kinked bassline and elegant chords that wash out to an infinite horizon. James Teej’s Super Eight Remix of ‘Bag of Bliss’ is a bleepy affair that’s rich in melody and has seriously deep chords and emotions bottled within its mid tempo groove. A killer breakdown and slinky beats lend it an epic prog feel that has you drawn right in to the heart of things. Next up we have the Seexah’s remix, which sees the competition winner tackle the same track, layering in oodles of trilling, heart tugging melodies that float above wavy beats. The penultimate version comes from sometime James Teej collaborator Aaron Santos, who remixes ‘Here We Are’ into a sensitive end of the night anthem with cute and ditty piano chords, breathy vocal ad libs and a true sense of genuinely artistic musical beauty. Last but not least, Metope gets down and dirty with his gurgling, bassline driven rework of ‘Exhale’. It’s a discordant, unsettling affair with plenty of mysterious and mischievous late night spirits floating about next to the killer bass stabs, and rounds out another on point remix package from My Favorite Robot.
