Starting off with the original: ‘Like A Drum’ we immediately kick into a beat-lover’s dream. A driving bass and percussion move us forward into a smooth vocal from Merdly B. Light harmonic touches and melodic bass accompany the seductive vocal to create a uniquely South African take on a classic disco-infused sound. Next up TrueSelf arrives, fresh from remixing Si Tew’s awesome “Breathe” alongside Atjazz, with a more pensive take on proceedings. A booming low-range tone punctuates some high-fade static action and once accompanied by a cutting deep synth and catchy hook.

This is a totally new take on the original track and you will not find yourself disappointed! Finally step up the Irish duo Fish Go Deep, associated with the likes of Laurent Garnier, Kerri Chandler and Roger Sanchez, with two cuts to add to the experience. The first is a Vocal Remix which takes the suggestions from the original version and then build a world of compelling off-key notes and high acidic trills around Merdly B’s luscious sonic vocal. Then the twosome return for a second offering with a Dub covered in crunchy, staccato effects which ride roughshod over a sweet synth note that slowly permeates the tasty phonic effort.
