Emma-Jean Thackray - Venus (Black Science Orchestra Remix)
Ashley Beedle is someone that you will always find near the top of my list of go-to remixers. The man is a Legend. As well as an impressive body of work under his own name, he's also released material as part of the seminal X-Press 2, Ballistic Brothers, and Black Science Orchestra. Here, he has reworked the sublime 'Venus' by one of my favourite discoveries last year, Emma-Jean Thackray. What was already insanely funky has been tightened up, put squarely in the middle of the dancefloor, and it's a total triumph. This is soul-drenched House Music at its finest. Essential.
