The Normalites – Street Corner Classics – Subatomic
Release Date: 8 November 2010
1 Original Mix
2 Boozoo Bajou Remix
3 A&A Remix
After the success of their cover version of the Belovedâs Sun Rising on Defected/Bar Grooves, The Normalites return to their spiritual home, Subatomic, for the release of their next single, Street Corner Classics.
For this outing our virtual duo leave the beach behind and venture out into the big city for a party in the streets. Taking inspiration from the bass frequencies emanating from the sound systems at Notting Hill Carnival, the boys have come up with a stone cold urban indie electro blues dub classic, celebrating the feeling of freedom to be found when thereâs music in the streets.
Remixes come from legendary German mellow dudes Boozoo Bajou who keep the song and guitar and up the party ante to create chugging funky groove; and UK rising stars A&A who stretch the original into a slo-mo space disco epic.
Whew, what a package.
The Normalites are chillout don Steve Miller aka Afterlife and DJ producer Chris Coco playing with sounds, ideas, poetry, dub and pop; confounding expectations; thinking outside the box; having genre-hopping fun; making music.
Note from Desmond Dekker : Normalites is pronounced Normal-ites, just like the Isrealites.
