“Sweetshop” – Flash Atkins feat. Caspa Codina (We Are Woodville/Paper Recordings) [SINGLE] February 17, 2010Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
Failed superhero Flash Atkins is back with the infectious Sweetshop for a second helping with some fresh remixes from the front line. Since the last EP, Flash has played live on The Fourth Plinth, and been filmed and interviewed on Sky by Clive Anderson as part of Anthony Gormley’s One and Other. He has also had the well-received Fags & Booze EP released on We Are Woodville featuring George Demure, Crazy P’s Danielle Moore and Sean Reveron.
First off, the original Sweetshop has been dusted down and zinged up with some pop nips and tucks. It’s got lo-fi bass, crunchy drums and snapping synths all topped of with 70s crooner Caspa Codina’s sleazy falsetto; it’s pop music with a knowing wink and impeccable 80s credentials.
Next up, producer of the hour Medasyn come fresh from masterminding Envy and Lady Sovereign to turn in a big room electro mix complete with crowd noises, dirty distorted basslines and 80s arpeggiators. There’s plenty of drops and attitude for maximum dancefloor impact.
Finally, Magik J does his hypnotic heads down thing with a vocal and dub suitable for those darker moments. The tracks mix up fidget, techno and house, guaranteeing full floors and thrown shapes.
