Si'Ke DJs – Turn Back

Si'Ke DJs Turn Back Swink Music
And from 'classic-style house done properly' to 'classic-style UKG done really very well indeed" from the Manc duo of Si Jones and Mike Morgan, AKA Si'Ke DJs.

All three mixes of Turn Back rock, but if pushed I'd plump for the Malin Genie Remix, a stuttery, steppy delight that Mr Edwards himself would be proud of! As I said, though, the other two mixes are also very playable: the Original is a low-slung and unhurried organ groove, while the Alex Agore's a more uptempo and shuffly pass, with plenty of the eponymous Korg on show. Rounding out the EP is Tenament Yard, which takes us into slightly (tech) housier territory while rocking a subtle Sade sample (from Hang On To Your Love, if anyone's interested).

I can think of no finer compliment to pay Turn Back, than to say that you could play it alongside classics like Anytime or Love Shy and it wouldn't feel even a little bit out of place. Outstanding stuff.

Out: This week

PS I notice from looking at the Soundcloud page, BTW, that Mosca played the Malin Genie rub on Radio 1 last week…
