Smoove & Turrell have never been scared of a gamble or two and over the course of their career, and their latest album - ‘Stratos Bleu’ marked some of the biggest stylistic changes to date. Though long lauded as one of the UK’s top bands in funk and soul circles, their album was a decidedly rawer analogue affair drawing on influences as diverse as Detroit techno, Bristol bass as well as the party starting breakbeat funk they are so well known for.
Hitting #1 position in the Official UK Dance Charts on release week, and grabbing the Album of the Day accolade from BBC 6 Music proved the band were entirely right. Given the strength of the source material it was only right to issue a remixes album on the project and there was no shortage of producers lining up to get involved to remix this too.
The music is so strong on this one that Smoove felt there were more versions to be had and since he's well known as a masterclass remixer himself, he's breath some more life into a selection of tracks, ready to set the dancefloor alight.
