The Fader had the first look yesterday with a stream of our ‘Half On A Baby’ Remixes EP, out October 25th on Mixpak, and now we’re presenting the full set of remixes, featuring Mosca, Funkystepz, Schlachthofbronx, Bert On Beats and Dubbel Dutch, alongside the Dre Skull produced original.
On its own, ‘Half On A Baby’ is a proper Caribbean dancehall/pop anthem, but when combined with remixes from some of the most exciting names in underground bass music it becomes something more. Dubbel Dutch takes “Half On A Baby” deep into the underground without losing sight of the melodicism that makes the original so enticing. Another member of the Mixpak fam, Schlachthofbronx, flips the track on it’s head, turning it into a tempo-shifting Power Soca heavy hitter.
Bert On Beats and Funkystepz hand in contemporary bass takes, with the former going hard and the latter taking a more melodic, tropical approach. Finally, Mosca (Number, Night Slugs, etc) comes with a subtle-yet-banging remix that simultaneously references early-90′s house and hyper-modern UK sounds.
Watch this space for the official release next Tuesday, 25th October.
