The next release on Crosstown Rebels sees Made By Pete come together once again with vocalist Jem Cooke. Returning to Damian Lazarus’ impressive imprint, Made By Pete invites Diynamic label boss Solomun and Gruuv founders Audiojack to take on remix duties.
The original cut of So Long opens up the EP. You are at once immersed in its trance-inducing elements, intensified by Cooke’s powerfully sensual vocals. Solomun shapes the title track into a grittier, industrial version whilst Audiojack’s leans on the more percussive side, with ambient sounds and a prominent vocal hook. Closing the EP is Modify Saturn, a track graced by tribal drums that beckon you to succumb to the groove.
"The aim for 'So Long' was to create a record that would work in a club, but also crossover onto a playlist for everyday listening. The track took on many forms during its creation but as soon as Jem delivered that stunning vocal, the final outcome became obvious." Made By Pete
