Here are the first 2 remixes from a new series of Shaboom's Mecca Funk album from back in the day!



Dave Ajus Remix of Mecca Funk by Shaboom



Dave Aju leads this legendary band of minstrels on a mind bending carnival procession through the world of Mecca Funk, on a journey to the dance floors of the great beyond.

an adventure in sound that begins with chunky b-boy inspired old school electro break beats,

combined with layers of robotic sequenced synths and bass topped off with meandering soulful Moog style synth lead lines, tasteful dub delays and sound fx over what sounds like monkeys beat boxin!

About a third of the way into the track Paul Birchalls Piano starts to delicately explore the terrain jamming against the vocal adlibs as the beats subside and the midway break down builds up into a huge crescendo with the synth sequence filters fully ablaze tearing this joint wide open as the beats steam back in on a mission to groove you! Ian Kirkhams mystical electric wind instrument thing teases the original theme from short bursts of colour eventually into the full blown melody which brings the track to its eventual resting place accompanied with Lee Shallcrosss (Section 25) Percussion, Mark Bells Bootsy inspired bass lines and a drunken sing-a-long with Dave Aju! Set the controls for the heart of the fun!



Clavis Remix of Ill Never Let You Down by Shaboom



Clavis bring their masterful rendition with the least fuss possible! Taka Boom's original full vocal take is on display with the background vocal hook buried with a low pass filter slowly opening up through the track building tension and giving eventual relief on a grand scale. The beats are stripped back with a hint of afro percussion styling, theres a fat synth stab that gets some nice reverb and delay touches giving a hint of dub cool supported by haunting melancholic pads with added splashes of muted tones building patiently throughout.

As the track breaks down the background vocals open up and Taka blows the roof off with some high octane adlibs and a synth sequence builds up the intensity ready for the mother of all drops! The track rides out as gracefully as it builds in the beginning. Modern Deep House at its finest
