  • Description From ambient soundscapes, downtempo vocal tracks and slo-mo house, through to deliciously deep house, tech-house and acid grooves, It Is What It Is, the supremely exciting double-disc debut artist album from Stelios Vassiloudis, was released on Bedrock at the tail end of last year. Now, at the height of summer 2012 comes the first of a series of superb album remix packages featuring interpretations from some of the most exciting producers from around the world, fittingly titled It Was What It Was.

    Jim Rivers is a British innovator, always moving forward in the ever-evolving world of electronic music, crossing the many bridges between house and techno with relaxed dignity. Here he blends techno and acid elements with immense skill, creating a worthy, anthemic interpretation of the deeply delicious original version of Small Hours.

    Stelios teamed up with like-minded producer, Berlin based Sasse, for one of his album highlights, The Z, so remixing such a superb original track would always be a tricky task. São Paulos rising global star, Wehbba has stepped up to the plate and created a percussive hook-laden melodic beauty in his inimitable South American style, that is bound to impress.

    The album is also rich with the many vocal talents it hosts, with one of the most glorious contributions coming from Astrid Suryanto on WalkAway. So, who better than USAs Ryan Cavanagh (aka Slow Hands) to create this sunshine filled mellow interpretation? As one of the main proponents of the current slow-mo and sultry house revolution, his creations bear all the hallmarks of years of classical and compositional training. Aiming to elevate electronic music to wholly new and rewarding creative planes with his approach to creating songs, not tracks, Slow Hands is about emotion, about warmth, about creative freedom. His interpretation of Walk Away is sure to leave you with smile on your face and a glow in your heart.
