Ed Congreave – Heal (A1 Bassline Remix)
Here’s some more downtempo music. This time for free download. This is one of those electronics mixed with an almost R&B warped vocal. Lovely in the sunshine. But also bouncy enough for the dance floor. Good work A1 Bassline.
And here’s the original, which is a bit more clear in its R&B influences and so not quite as pleasing on the ear.
The original track is also available for free download here:
Blurb: Ed Congreave is best known for quietly marshaling an arsenal of analogue gear within Oxford’s 3rd greatest band Foals (after Ride and Swervedriver, of course). In between sprinkling his unique electronic magic on their upcoming 3rd album he’s been honing his own production skills – the first fruits of which we find here. ‘Heal’ wraps a plaintive male vocal around an infectious chord sequence, perfectly poignant for late summer, and is now available as a free digital download via the DEEP SHIT Facebook page. ‘Heal’ will also be released as a limited edition vinyl on 17th September via the new DEEP SHIT imprint, an irregular 12” spin off from Ed and Friendly Fires’ Jack Savidge’s slightly less irregular DEEP SHIT parties and NTS radio show. As well as including a special vinyl-exclusive ‘redux’ version of the original, the package will also feature a remix from dance music’s top snooker player, A1 Bassline, who, coming off the back of 3 EPs on Claude Von Stroke’s ever-wonderful Dirtybird, has also recently announced his own SOURCEUNKNWN imprint. Here he turns in a killer late-night remix, replacing the original’s melodicism with a tough percussive energy.
