FCL :: released September 13 2013
Defected are proud to be releasing an exclusive all star remix package of one the most hyped records of the past twelve months. FCL’s reworking of Chicagoan duo ESP’s classic house track ‘It’s You’, or more specifically San Soda’s Panorama Bar Acca Version, has taken the underground clubbing world by storm since the FCL guys first released it last summer on their own We Play House label. With its phenomenally uplifting and infectious vocals, and its simple framework, making it ripe for remixing, it’s easy to see why it was one of the most acclaimed tracks of this year’s Miami WMC and why the original and its remixes are set to become anthems of Ibiza’s 2013 season.
First on remix duties is US house veteran MK who, in signature style, strikes a perfect balance between a subtly driving and bouncing bassline and the original’s soulful vocal loop, with just the right amount of energy to set off any peak time dance floor. Next up is fellow US heavyweight David Morales who’s intricate and understated percussion complements the original vocal cut to perfection. The blissfully Balearic vibes, crafted from one of the world’s most prolific remixers, underlines his status as one of the world’s undisputed masters of uplifting house music.
Flashmob’s down tempo take on the track offers a catchy bass line which gives way to sultry waves of synths; another captivating groove from the Italian duo whose production skills are going from strength to strength. And if that wasn’t enough, Defected call upon the legend that is Mr Fingers to complete the remix package. And who better to craft an ‘acid jam vocal edit’ than Larry Heard, who’s expert mix of core acid squelch sounds and hypotonic trance like vibes take the track on a twisted journey back in time to the decade of its inception.
In short, these remixes are the ultimate party piece for the summer ahead and beyond.
