Mauritzio ft Levern - Wanna Be Remixes Part 1

The first set of remixes of this soul-infused house cut on the recently(-ish) revived Black Vinyl come courtesy of label boss Alan Russell.

His Wadadli Soul Vocal Remix will be the one for the soulful floors without a doubt, with plenty of live instrumentation and Levern's voice to the fore. But it's the Wadadli Breaks Remix that's doing it for me more. This keeps the full vocal, but underpins it with a muffled breakbeat that harks back to the early days of UK house, and a ponderous, jazz-style bassline that isn't going to let the frantic percussion hurry it along any (once you hear the track you'll see what I mean).

All of which adds up to a raw-sounding house cut made for big speakers…which is after all what it's all about, eh?

Another set of remixes are presumably to follow, given that this says Part 1, so I'll keep you posted…

Out: This week

About: Mauritizio and Levern are actually called Mauritzio Baiocchi and Levern Johnson and hail from Italy, in case you were wondering… and you can find out more about Black Vinyl here. And no, I have no idea what 'wadadli' means either.
