The 'Love Puss' EP, featuring a total of six mixes, is out via Traxsource on Friday

The first of three killer track premieres we've got for you this week comes from UK label Friday Fox Recordings, as iDJ brings you first chance to hear the Rhodesy's Acid Strip remix of Love Puss by Lewis Daniels. It's one of six mixes that make up the Love Puss EP, which is out via Traxsource this Friday, with a full release to follow on 11 June.

Fully immersed in the UK house scene since the early 90s, Lewis Daniels has been running the Friday Fox Recordings label alongside partner-in-crime Christian B since 2013, his disco-infused house productions finding favour with everyone from Laurent Garnier and Ashley Beedle to Hed Kandi supremo Mark Doyle. Originally from Essex, he's currently based in Ilfracombe in Devon, where he juggles DJing and music production with a parallel career running a hotel alongside his husband.

The Original Mix of Love Puss is a spangly, midtempo affair that marries horn stabs and a decidedly camp vocal to a rasping synth riff that's got overtones of the classic Dooms Night. Elsewhere on the EP, label co-owner Christian B adds sumptuous keys, Khillaudio gives things a vaguely garage-y twist, Meraki Soul nudge towards Afro-house territory and Simon Morgan introduces a techier edge. 

The mix we've got for you, though, is Rhodesy's AcidStrip. Coming from the UK”s Paul Rhodes, it's perhaps the most radical reversioning of the lot, as out goes the scraping synth hook and in comes the bubbling 303. See what you think…
