Huxley takes the original for a nostalgic romp through the 90s in homage to early Garage and Bassline. Here, skipping percussion supports cleverly selected vocal cuts and a descending, all encompassing bass pattern which is occasionally beset with classic Rhodes stabs. Also on remix duties is relative newcomer Shall Ocin, he dials in the funk with a disco beat and a wandering Chromeo-style electro-bass patch. His interpretation injects just enough punch to lift it from the half-hearted nu-disco bar set to the throb of serious dance floors.
‘Stella’s Way’ makes for an excellent all round package, each version suitably different from the next to give them equal appeal in a set. Our preference goes to the title track for its originality but it’s a close call.
