Lola gives a heart-wrenching performance. Funky Transport and JoneeQ supply rolling beats and tuneful keys, driving the lyrics to make an emotionally deep tune work it on deep house dancefloors.

Written and produced by M. Urquhart / I. Macpherson / L.Gailey, published by Eighth Dimension Publishing(BMI).

EIGHT-TRACKSis pleased to announce the latest collaboration with our extended family in
Aberdeen, Scotland. Iain Macpherson's long history as Funky Transportis highlighted by
several singles on labels such as 20/20 Vision, Playhouse, and EIGHT-TRACKS' mother label
Eighth Dimension. JoneeQ has some fabulous singles on Flat and Round as well as Flygaric
Tracks. These two previously came together for an acclaimed single with Derrick Carter's
Classic Music Company. Bring into the fold another Aberdeen resident by the name of Lola,
who had contributed vocals to JoneeQ's past records, and we find ourselves blessed with the
melancholy greatness that is How Can U (Be So Far Away).
Lola gives a heart-wrenching performance, singing a song about the complex and unsure world
of the heart. Funky Transport and JoneeQ supply rolling beats and tuneful keys, driving the
lyrics to make an emotionally deep tune work it on deep house dancefloors. It's a superb mix of
elements that you rarely encounter in the 12 racks. Can you tell we're a bit enamored?
Aquality trio of remixes open up other dimensions of the original cut. Q-Burns Abstract
Messagesupplies a hectic dub, increasing the BPM with a groove like Jack had and a bit of
tweaky mono-synth action. Atnarkoand SF keyboardist Sen - Sei combine forces on a hefty
rework, complete with a funky sandbox beat shoveled by a solid low-end. The way the vocal
pops in and out is gorgeous if we say so ourselves. Finally, our Canuck friend Jon Delerious
goes for an epic treatment, laying the deepness on thick while fueling it with a D-town bassline
and a bit of dreamy percussion.
How Can U (Be So Far Away) is a labor of love for all concerned, and we at EIGHT-
TRACKS have been sitting on this song since our inception. DJs as diverse as Lars Funk
D'Void, Joshua/DJ Iz, and Murray Richardson have already embraced this EPin their sets. Now
EIGHT-TRACKS is excited about finally sharing this special moment in house music with you.
We know you'll dig it.
