A nice range of mixes again on this latest from Austin, Texas-based Whiskey Pickle… which is always easier, from a reviewer’s point of view, than trying to find different things to say about four microscopically different tech-house rubs!
So, in its Original form Sexed Up has something of a Balearic, yacht rock kinda vibe, being a lazy, laidback groove that sits somewhere between spangly nu-disco and lounge-leaning deep house, and that sports some ace George Benson-esque jazz-funk geetar action. The Brothers In Arms Remix drops the tempo further and adds both male and female vocal snips, transforming the track into something of a slo-mo gem. The even slower Jonny Blackouts Remix then takes us into near-ambient territory, before label boss Richard Gear (see what he did there?) steps up to the remix plate and heads in the opposite direction, housing the track right up and giving it a nice phat ass-shaking b-line while he’s about it.
It’s the latter rub that stands out for yours truly but the quality meter’s set high throughout, rest assured!
