On top of the stunning lead track, Ashley Beedles Street Soul Edit, this 12” also features three other amazing reworks by Hint, Flevans and PTH Projects. Add that collective mass of talent to the raw material of fast-rising star Auldist’s classic soul-fuelled grown-up pop credentials, and this 12” is guaranteed to be big news.
Ashley Beedle, in various guises, has had an immeasurable impact on dance music in the UK and beyond, nailing that rare feat of crossing over into number one single territory while maintaining total credibility as an underground pioneer. Few people could claim not to be familiar with his music in one way or another, whether in the form of X-Press 2’s chart-topping smash “Lazy”; his unrivalled catalogue of remixes, ranging from breakthrough house tracks as Black Science Orchestra to Elton John’s “Are You Ready For Love?”; or through his tastemaking shows on Ministry of Sound and RBMA Radio.
When he received his promo copy of ‘Made Of Stone’, Ashley Beedle immediately fired back an excited email, saying he loved “In A Week, In A Day” and would like to do an edit. So he did, and here it is: a gorgeously crisp streetwise take on the authentic yet modern soul sound that has made Kylie Auldist a firm favourite of DJs such as Mark Lamarr (BBC Radio 2), Craig Charles (BBC 6Music) and Laurent Garnier.
Also on the A side you’ll find “One Goodbye” (Flevans Remix), another popular soulful song from the album given an injection of the Flevans party bounce; on the flip you’ll find “In A Week, In A Day” remixed this time by PTH Projects, and the closing track is Hint’s atmospherically charged funky house version of “One Goodbye”. A standout slice of classy remixing, it recently aired exclusively as part of his Tru Thoughts 10th Anniversary mix on Gilles Peterson’s Radio 1 show, grabbing attention the world over, and sparking a flood of enquiries and support from DJs including DJ NG (Rinse FM / 1Xtra). With Hint’s of-the-moment sounds winning new fans by the day, this mix cements his rapidly growing reputation for cutting edge production and killer club hooks, and rounds off an amazing 12” in fine style.
