Space Coast & JP Soul feat. Audio Angel - The Way
The Way (Sleazy McQueen Remix)
The Way (Wolf+Lamb + Nick Monaco Remix)
The Way (Wolf+Lamb Remix)
The Way (Dub)
“The world gets smaller every day. We keep getting caught up trying to find our way.” These are the lyrics from the latest offering on Roam Recordings -- a slick multi-mood original vocal dance floor burner of a single featuring a lot of heavy hitters in the biz giving a take on it. "The Way" is an east (space?) coast meets west coast project. Florida's Sleazy McQueen and Jorge Collazo are Space Coast, composers of the soundtrack for the not-so-distant space travel in our futures. They pair up with the Roam bossman, JP Soul, a San Franciscan and role-player in the 40 Thieves gang. And Audio Angel, also from the Bay Area and a long time label familiar, lends her lovely vocals to the single.
The original collaboration between Space Coast, JP Soul, and Audio Angel is a smooth groover perfect for the more sultry of sets. Sleazy McQueen’s remix pushes the energy into main dance floor attraction territory with a galloping low end that rattles the bass bins. The Dub keeps it tight with chopped up and stuttering elements from the original making for a more hypnotic vibe.
Rounding off the EP are two new remixes with a few surprises by Wolf+Lamb and Nick Monaco. Zev and Gadi from Wolf+Lamb are two characters synonymous with a slyer and often slowed-to-a-passionate-pulse side of dance music. They're self staters and their music shows for it. Playful claps lend their remix all the cheekiness it needs while the hand percussion provides a primal dance groove that builds with off-kilter organs and bass that sputters. When joined by prodigious Northern California talent Nick Monaco for an additional remix, the boys come up with an old world-tinted jam led by a burlesque piano, keeping with the same joyous percussion.
"The Way" is also available as a limited vinyl 12" single and is out now ahead of the digital release.
