Oneness Records releases fresh remixes of old favourites
Summer has ended but Oneness Records is keeping the vibe alive with the release of ‘Oneness Remixed’. The project is a compilation of remixes by DJs who have mastered the science of dub, and the art of making you move.
To open Oneness Remixed, Dubmatix delivers a groovy rub-a-dub interpretation of J. Boog’s ‘Live Up,’ whose fat bassline is the lead into the project. This composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist hails from Toronto, but has carved out a massive following on the international stage.
A digital-dub rendition of ‘Fire Burn’ by Naptali is Manudigital’s contribution to the compilation. The blend of genres and sounds may be curious to reconcile at first, but the beats inevitably seep in. Manu Digital hails from France, specializes in digital reggae and has worked with some prolific artists like Alborosie, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer.
Organic vintage vibes herald the inclusion of The Hempolics’ take on Dre Island’s ‘On Time’, staying true to Oneness Records’ roots. Completing the compilation is an appearance by the Grammy- family, Morgan Heritage, with ‘Modern Man’ – a deep undulating drum and bass remix by AnalogBassCamp.
The album contains 13 remixes and 7 instrumental and dub versions. While the label stays true to their reggae roots, Oneness Records proves yet again that they aren’t afraid of genre-bending and experimentation.
