Nina Simone Remixes Three incredible reimaginations of Nina Simone classics from Francois K, Tony Humphries and Coldcut each with their own unique touch and trademark styleweaved within. Francois K kicks off with a sublime deep house rework of ‘Here Comes The Sun’. Reminiscent of Larry Heard’s output, Francois nods to Mr Fingers with a bassline that harks back to those early Chicago classics, coupled with deft mbira touches that create an other-worldy feel to the remix. Celestial waves and singing rides mix with a buzzing top line melody that lay the foundations forSimone’s spiritual voice to hang in the air with a perpetual elegance and grace.A timeless slice of house music that earned Francois’ version a spot on one ofInnervisions acclaimed ‘Secret Weapons’ compilations. Next up, Zanzibar royalty Tony Humphries lays out a bumping remix of ‘Turn Me On’ turning the bluesy soul leanings of the original on their head and flipping it into an uplifting summertime groover. Simone’s words take on adifferent tone with this revitalising rework backed by staccato guitars and chopped up vocal melodies that give aplayful yet soulful character to this slab of sunshine. Rounding off the EP in classic Coldcut style, the duo meld ‘Save Me’ into a chopped, screwed and crunched remix.Lo-fi percussive elements and distorted textures blend with glitching samplesand stuttering sequences that turn Simone into a tripped-out goddess. Anatmospheric piece of electronica but with a harden edge purpose made for the dancefloor. South Street 12"
