Nicole Moudaber & Skin - The Breed Remixes
After the release of their collaborative 'BREED' EP at the end of last summer, Nicole Moudaber and Skin (from Skunk Anansie) have unveiled their highly anticipated remix package featuring a long list of respected producers. Carl Craig, Fur Coat, Jamie Jones, Jerome Sydenham, Paco Osuna, Pan-Pot and Scuba.
Originally born out of Nicole and Skin's desire to fuse their rock and techno backgrounds, this is a true collaboration project with a difference.
The pair have also recently been sharing the stage at high-profile
slots such as Space Ibiza and Coachella.
The first part features techno legend and remix master Carl Craig, and provides the only remix of 'Someone Like You'. Powerful kick drums alongside the original chords take centre stage, whilst Skin's vocals come to the forefront in a series of tension-filled breakdowns.
Rounding off the A side 'Organic Love', is then is treated to a melodic yet industrial
remix by Hotflush head honcho Scuba.
The first track on the B side is Paco Osuna's jacking, percussion-filled remix of 'You Like This', which is currently one of Nicole's favourite tracks to play out. Featuring a surprise buzz-saw synth drop mid way through, it's easy to visualize the effect this would have on a dancefloor.
Lastly we see a remix by Fur Coat of the most conventionally techno track 'Organic Love',
turning it into a darker and more dramatic affair.
