Ben Dean feat Bryony Matthews - Find Me
The original's a mid-paced affair with Chicago-esque bass and a yearning, soulful vocal from Ms Matthews. Remixes then come from the pick of the UK deep house crop. Label boss Al serves up a dark and moody dancefloor dub with a big fat bassline that comes remarkably close to 'bassline' territory (or at least 'bassline house' territory, before it went all cheesy and urban-electro). Long-term cohort Carlo Gambino takes us on another deep, dark n' dubby ride, but this time one that's more suited to home listening/post-club play, Rob Clarke keeps the vocal intact but beefs up the beats and ups the tempo a little while finally, Ben himself dons his Backfoot guise for a steppy, laidback, garage-y pass.
Classy stuff all round, with Backfoot and Al sharing the honours for me.
