WhoMadeWho brought their down-tempo track ‚There’s A Way‘ to Get Physical last May. Now just as summer hit’s its peak, we’ve collected remixes from the family; andhim, Jazzuelle and T.M.A.

First up is andhim with chopped vocals establishing the initial rhythm as the percussion follows suit and the vocoders slowly fade in. They give the track an open-air summery vibe that the duo have become known for, while keeping the track strong enough to be played out just about anywhere. Jazzuelle decides on a slower build with a darker atmosphere leading us to a beautiful break before bringing warm smiles with warming synths. Newcomers T.M.A bring a fantastic mixture of sunshine-house and jazz to the track proving the German trio know their way around the studio. And last but definitely not least, the original mix wraps up the remix EP, giving us a great reference point of the diversity found in each remix.


LV – Jump and Reach (2015)


LV originally linked with Tigran for a special collaboration for a Maida Vale Session for Gilles Peterson’s Radio One show. The guys have always thrived by working with new collaborators and environments. In the past there’s been joint efforts with London poet Josh Idehen and journeys to South Africa for kwaito-infused productions with Johannesburg MCs.

Anyone who heard the Maida Vale session that laid the foundations for the album will know how exciting it was to hear delicate jazz musicality at play with UK-tinged dance rhythms. ‘Jump and Reach’ builds on that potential, with circling piano going toe to toe with rolling drums and stabs of bass. Perfect for Worldwide Festival, where Will from LV will be spinning next week!

Brownswood Recordings is the independent label belonging to the DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson.
