Fresh off their latest EP on Soul Clap Records (We Push On), DC-based Sol Power All-Stars are back on their own imprint with Special Features. The record offers two new originals on the A, and two remixes to the lead track on the flip. While the two top-side jams offer dubby, broken beats lathered with vocals and keys from Kenny Wesley and Daniel Meinecke respectively, DJ Spinna and Caserta’s takes on “Don’t You Let Go” provide reinvented looks.
Our premiere comes in the form of Spinna’s Galactic Soul Remix, which in trademark Galactic Soul fashion boasts a big, funky bassline and next level drums (look out for that clap). It’s an eight minute-long deep house take that serves nicely as a club joint; with brooding synths adding a slightly darker vibe. The other remix, meanwhile, has Caserta doing his best MAW impression — swinging drums and piano house aesthetics and all.
Special Features is technically out tomorrow (September 27), but is already showing up on retailers like Juno Records
