Sherwood

Tuesday brings a pair of Adrian Sherwood mixes for your listening pleasure. The first is his dub mix of Monkey Mafia’s after hours classic from 1998, their cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival song As Long As I Can See The Light. Echo, delay, melodica, the full Sherwood dubbed out business. A lovely way to start the day.

As Long As I Can See The Light (Adrian Sherwood Dub Lighting)

My own personal Woodentops revival continues- the band haven’t been far away from my stereo for most of 2018. Sherwood remixed several of Rolo and co’s songs. This is my favourite, vocals up front, crunchy guitars dropped in and out and frenetic pace maintained.

Slash The Seats

A David Holmes remix of Monkey Mafia from back in 1995 when this big beat/trip hop thing was all the rage, Manchester City looked like they’d never, ever win a trophy and people smoked in pubs and restaurants. Actually, although this is dated in parts I think it’s worn quite well.

Monkey Mafia ‘As Long As I Can See The Light’ (Adrian Sherwood Dub Lighting)

Another Adrian Sherwood remix of an 90s dance act for you, following earlier posts featuring his dub remixes of Primal Scream and Death In Vegas, both a few months back. This is the dub version of As Long As I Can See The Light by Jon Carter’s Monkey Mafia, who were a bit big beat, but this, and the original A-side, are chilled out loveliness. It’s a cover of a Creedence Clearwater Revival song (actually the second cover of theirs I’ve posted, the other was by Minutemen, Have You Ever Seen The Rain?). This is spacey, dubby, features some really cool melodica, man, and does everything you’d want it to.
