Tom Lown/Harold Heath - Urbana/Tycho (Q-Burns Abstract Message Remix) (DeepWit Recordings) by Q-Burns Abstract Message published on 2012/07/06 14:51:18 +0000 **Track streams at 128 kbps** Two of my favorite UK house music producers, Tom Lown and Harold Heath, approached me with a quartet of tracks based around the concept of a shared EP. That is, Tom and Harold both added tracks, then they remixed each other's tracks. I was pretty excited by this and thought the music was a bucket full of brilliant, so I offered to release this on one of my 'kinda' record labels. Minutes later reality set in and I realized that a sane person with a schedule like mine shouldn't make lofty promises. With the tracks suddenly unsigned due to my delusion, guilt set in and I instead happily offered a remix once these excellent tracks did find a home. Soon thereafter the worthy DeepWit Recordings stepped up to the plate, and I followed suit with the remix you can listen to here. Noting the description of the EP above, you'll see that the remix is credited to both Tom and Harold and shares the titles of each of their tracks ("Tycho" and "Urbana"). That's because my rampant restlessness caused me to mix up remix parts from both songs and somehow create a 'combined remix' using elements of everything on the EP. The "Urbana" parts are probably more prevalent (as that's the main melody), but the squelchy chord power draws from the "Tycho" current. I also stared suspiciously at a drawing of Prince Jammy during the recording session and I guess that probably influenced the final version's dubwise flavor. My remix + Tom Lown + Harold Heath = the five tracks that make up the Hal9000 EP. You gotta check this out … my remix aside, the four main tracks on this are scrumptious. It's out now through Beatport and, soon, Juno Download.
