With an absolutely immense vocal performance from Kristine W, her classic jazz-infused “Land Of The Living” was probably made most famous by the fantastic reworking by Deep Dish back in 1996. We felt it only right to give it a fresh spin, and called in some huge talent, one from back in the day, and another from the current wave of hugely talented producers coming up through the ranks on 2011.
First up we have a man that needs no introduction. Kevin Saunderson is the man behind so truly amazing projects and tunes, from the out and out pop dance of Inner City, to the underground depths of Detroit techno anthems such as “Triangle Of Love” alongside Juan Atkins. Kevin’s reworking of Land Of The Living focuses around some driving kicks, pulsing synths and a deep electronic bassline, whilse vocal stabs and ad-libs soar over the top of it all to great effect.
Going head-to-head with this legendary name is someone that’s no stranger to remixing a classic. Timothy Allan has recently remixed The Shrink’s “Nervous Breakdown”, as well as work with Kirsty Hawkshaw and Loverush UK, not forgetting our very own “Be My Baby” by Haggstrom, back in late 2010. Tim takes things down a much more progressive big-room house route, retaining a fully intact vocal (although a dub is also included) and sounding more like what Faithless would be doing in 2011, than Faithless themselves. This is a huge remix not to be missed!
Also included in this bundle is the previously unreleased full length Deep Dish “Land Of The Lost Vocal” mix, which is a journey indeed weighing in at over 13 minutes long. It’s a true summer anthem and has not been released digitally before. It’s a great opportunity to snap it up!
