Mark de Clive-Lowe - MdCL Remixes Vol. 1 (EP)
MdCL Remixes Vol.1 is a compilation of remixes by musical maverick Mark de Clive-Lowe. Bridging worlds of music from DJ led dancefloors to underground jazz clubs, MdCL is one of the most broad-ranging artists you’ll find anywhere. Over his prolific career he’s collaborated with the likes of Kenny Dope, DJ Spinna, Joe Clausell and Restless Soul; remixed the likes of Omar, Shirley Horn and Jody Watley; and regularly takes his mind-bending live show far and wide all over the planet. With this new collection of soulful, dancefloor gems, MdCL presents his DJ-friendly reworks of future classics. The selection kicks off with German trumpet master Nils Wülker featuring none other than Jill Scott vocalling the Nia Andrews and Mocky-penned “Worth the Wait” where Nils’ trumpet dances around Jill Scott, delivering with goosebumps as only she can. Los Angeles based Moulton Music collaborator vocalist Nina Lares gets remixed with a nod to classic late 90s house music, and songbird trio King get their song “Supernatural” remixed with the original’s lush instrumentation underpinned with a bubbling signature MdCL bassline and drums. Side B launches with LA multi-instrumentalist Dexter Story’s “As Is” reimagined as an ethereal late night dancefloor moment inspired by MdCL’s trips to South Africa. Euro-Caribbean-American singer Amana Melomé’s “Lock & Key” has MdCL unleash his synths and piano keys for a full 88-keys workout, and the side closes with broken beat flavors of MdCL remixing longtime New Zealand collaborator Cherie Mathieson with the bassline and drums pressure of “Games We Play” sounding like an undiscovered P-Funk-meets-Bugz in the Attic anthem straight from the clubs of West London.
