Odyssey - Lonely Star

My contribution to the Odyssey remix project takes it's influences from early house music and in particular a track called The Morning After by Fallout (Tommy Musto & Frankie Bones). I always loved the way that track mixed organic sounds with  electronic timbres to devastating effect and it seemed to perfect approach for Lonely Star (with it's lush string arrangements). It mightn't be for the disco traditionalists but for those who like some disco elements mixed into their deep house it'll be forthcoming as both a single and on the 'Return Flight' remix album (the launch party for which happens at the Queen of Hoxton in London on September 3rd).

I'll be playing at the launch party alongside the likes of Ashley Beedle, Ray Mang, Yam Who! & PBR Streetgang (all of whom have contributed to the remix project) - http://tinyurl.com/3gglypj - so looking like a damn fine evening.

Quick thanks out to those that came to Vintage Festival on Friday, what an epic day/night - and boy did that disco terrace rock! If you're around this weekend I'm playing at The Big Chill (in an authentic Juke Joint!) on Saturday with Ashley Beedle (the same venue features sets from Steve Kotey & Toby Tobias on the Friday and the Unabombers & The Cosmic Truth on the Sunday!).
