1991 was a crazy time in the history of house music. In the UK, house clubs had started to become big business and the Hacienda, Venus in Nottingham and Nicky Holloway’s Milk Bar were all enjoying success, anticipating the arrival of the ‘super clubs’ like Ministry Of Sound and Cream. House music was making it on to commercial radio thanks to the success of the weekly nights up and down the country.

Urban Soul’s ‘Alright’ had big tune written all over it – a fantastic uplifting vocal from Roland Clark, a huge bass line and of course support from Sasha (probably the biggest and busiest DJ in the world at that time). There weren’t many DJs that didn’t play this in 1991, and it fuelled a long succession of gospel-inspired vocal house tunes at a time when progressive house and techno was starting to fragment the house scene.

Listening to the original again, it was clear that – like all our previous releases - it was going to require the most talented remixers to do justice to such a classic. Karizma has come from being a long-standing member of the Basement Boys to one of today’s most versatile producers making the finest deep house, broken beat and minimal house. The ‘Kaytronik movementz part 1’ is a raw 12 minute excursion that weaves melodies in and out of a stripped down Detroit groove.

Jay Shepheard is a Juno veteran, and now a rising international production talent responsible for the excellent Black Label #19 EP - one of Compost’s biggest releases of recent times. His sound is pitched perfectly between disco, deep house and minimal and really works on this remix, dropping the haunting original vocal into a clean, jackin’ mix which brings the track to a new generation too young to remember this the first time around. This mix is destined for big things.
