Get Physical and Afro Acid come together for a heavyweight musical selection, as scene godfather DJ Pierre, as well as Chris Liebing, remix a classic track with lyrics written by American giant Roland Clark and produced by Get Physical creative director, Roland Leesker.
This outstanding package will be getting as exclusive Bandcamp only release on Get Physical’s store, with a wider release planned on DJ Pierre’s Afro Acid label in September. The record sees this diverse collection of widely acclaimed and hugely influential artists come together as one for a record that expresses their belief in love and unity.
The release opens with the original, a dark, pulsating tune that straddles the house and techno divide with a bendy bassline, acid stabs and a tribal groove that is finished off with an iconic vocal. The first remix is from long time Chicago giant, Phuture founding member and Wild Pitch creator DJ Pierre. His remix is a big loopy disco jam, with soul bursting out of the colourful grooves, splashes of cymbal and horn and string sounds that get you feeling good. Mute artist and long-time dark techno mainstay Chris
Liebing then comes through with a driving remix built on supple drum programming. It grows in stature, becoming ever more unhinged and is sure to blow any dance floor apart for years to come. Finally, we have DJ Pierre’s iconic Phuture project take the reins with an epic 10 minute plus mix of acid, rolling percussion and building tension. This is a welcome return from Phuture who have plans for a debut album in 2021.
These are seminal tracks that will always sound vital in any context or era.
