Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride (Remixes)

by Craig Bratley



We revisit Craig Bratley's excellent debut album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride (which picked up plaudits from RA to FACT, Future Music to Mixmag) by offering up two remixes from the legendary Ewan Pearson and one each from Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold and Midnight Special.

Ewan's mix joins the dots between vintage street sounds and slo-mo acid house with vocoded vocals on top.

Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold remix Computer Controlled, one of the stand out tracks from the album. The Velvet Season duo of Joel Martin and Gerry Mooney have some serious musical pedigree between them, with Joel also recording as Quiet Village alongside Radioslave and Gerry previously working with DJ Harvey on his infamous Black Cock releases. Their three 12 releases to date on their own Lucky Hole label all sold out instantly resulting in the inevitable Discogs frenzy. The remix of Computer Controlled is a timeless piece of melancholic house with a Chi Town bassline topped off with Trumpet, Keys and the mesmerising melody from the original. An undoubted future classic!

Last but by no means least Midnight Special rework Beat On The Drum. Midnight Special have released two Vinyl Only 12 to date and are made up of Ex-Peace Division man Justin Drake and Tsuba boss Kevin Griffiths. The resulting mix is groove heavy underground house made with the panache & depth you would expect from the veterans of the UK house scene.
