RSD012 // Standing Still Is An Illusion Remixed

by Blair French (incl. Eli Soul Clap, Aroop Roy, & Topher Horn)



Just over a year ago Blair French made his dance debut on Rocksteady Disco, subsequently making waves worldwide. This 12” pushes that sound further with remixes from a heavyweight cast of characters. Aroop Roy kicks it off with a samba-infused remix, with drum programming taking the original spiritual jazz odyssey into the late night. Topher Horn follows with a bassline driven remix, with dubbed out vox and percussion. Bamboozle aka Eli Soul Clap takes up the entire AA side, blending the live energy of the original with techy cosmic synth swells and a reimagined bassline.

“This is very good stuff.” -Alex Barck [Jazzanova - Berlin]

“Loving these edits, they are indeed all very different! In the tuneful equivalent to a comforting hug from a good friend, Topher Horn creates a deeply enchanting soundscape with his warm, fuzzy bassline sprinkled with light, rolling vocals. [Eli’s] ethereal builder is bound to set any dance floor on fire with beautifully constructed percussion and heavily spell-binding breakdowns.” -Jay Carder [4 To The Floor - London]

“Really feeling all of them! Love the late vibes and intricate drums of Aroop's and the groovy deepness of Topher's and Bamboozle's mixes. Can't go wrong with any of the above. Solid package.” -Marc Meistro [Sol Power - DC]

“Feeling the bamboozle mix here, will give it a try on the dancefloor” -Oliver Dollar [Industry Standard - Berlin]
