Originally released on Plumb Music in 1997, Body Talkin’ (originally called ‘Feel Your Body Talking’) is back on DJ Sneak Classics with a fresh set of remixes from DJ Mes, Arturo Garces, Bluntz & Roachez and DJ Sneak himself on his ‘House Gangster Remix’.
The original version, also included, shows just why Sneak was the premier name in the filtered disco sound in the late 90’s, influencing the likes of Daft Punk and Armand Van Helden. Relentless jacking beats underpin a full, heavily layered groove that rises and falls around a female vocal hook. Sneak’s new ‘House Gangster’ remix strips back the filtered sounds but keeps the jacking beats for a heads down floor beater.
Guesthouse Music’s DJ Mes stays closer to the original, bumps the beat, teases in the groove and works the vocal into a frenzy. Arturo Garces from Jump Up Recordings goes down a darker and deeper path with a throbbing subterranean baseline and recent Magnetic Recordings signings Bluntz & Roachez take things in a more sparse direction with tribal percussion, while pitching down the vocal and adding carefully crafted synth stabs.
