When they decided to commission remixes of Amp Fiddler's recent - and undeniably excellent - Motor City Booty album, Midnight Riot cast the net far and wide. They've gathered together the results on an expansive album - available on digital download - and a string of vinyl EPs. This first wax installment boasts reworks of two album tracks: "Superficial", and "Steppin". Mark E steals the show with his remix of the former, placing the Detroit veteran's sterling vocal over a dreamy, hypnotic deep house groove. Similarly inspired - to our ears, at least - is Qwestlife's bustling flipside of "Steppin", which re-casts the rolling, organic house original (also included) as a jaunty chunk of two-step garage/synth-boogie fusion.
