The Cure & The Cause

Fish Go Deep, Tracey K

DFTDXXV04D5 | 2024-02-09  
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Defected Records presents a series of extra special collaborative releases Together, integrating talent from the label’s storied past and the stars of its future. As part of the series, a certified house classic from the Defected catalogue, Fish Go Deep’s 2005 anthem ‘The Cure & The Cause’ receives two remixes from Idris Elba and Atmos Blaq. After his 2020 Defected debut in collaboration with Inner City, ‘No More Looking Back’, British icon, DJ and actor Idris Elba’s relationship with the label continues to grow since headlining their highly anticipated The Warehouse Project show and Defected’s Miami Music Week showcase in 2023. Now the global A-lister steps up to remix a Defected classic nearly two decades after its original release, Fish Go Deep’s ‘The Cure & The Cause’ features percussive subtleties and instrumental flourishes that seem to ebb and flow around Tracey K’s soulful vocals; Elba takes these celebrated elements and adds a significant Afro electronic flair, with powerful drums and expansive synths building tension to create a defining club cut for the ages. Next up, a champion of electronic music in his native SA, Atmos Blaq infuses ‘The Cure & The Cause’ with a deep, pensive quality achieved through the subtle production work and precise instrumentation we have come to expect from the Soweto born producer.
