Michael King - CTRL+S
In its Original form, CTRL+S is a decidedly disco-leaning affair, with a guitar loop that reminds me a little of Sister Sledge for some reason, unhurried natural-sounding percussion, vintage Ibiza-style pianos and an analogue top line that comes in halfway through. Ed Lee's Alt Del Remix maintains the Original's slower pace but adds "free your body, free your soul" vox and a phat bassline.
In Wez Saunders' hands, the track is then reworked into a driving tech-houser with some heavyweight, tribal bottom end, though the analogue synth and pianos remain to bring the light, while finally the Dan Styles Remix takes us into quirkier tech-house territory, with off-kilter beats and an even-more-heavyweight ponderous techno b-line.
Ed Lee does it best for me here I think but as I said, there's enough variety on offer for this to have quite broad appeal.
