Remixes are supplied courtesy of Full Intention and Cavego

Yogi and Husky AKA Random Soul release their latest offering, and it's a good one, with five mixes in total including one a-piece from vocal house legends Full Intention and disco/funk purveyor Cavego.

The mixes that light my fire are the Classic Mix with its swung backbeat, great piano lead line and full vocal from Yogi, the Extended Mix which is more polished with echoed vocals and a synth to replace the piano, and the Full Intention Remix - my favourite, with beefed-up percussion, the vocal sample cut up, added brass stabs and a simple but highly effective funky bassline. They also use the full vocal and add risers, and the whole mix has that groovy feel that Full Intention are so famed for. There's also a Radio Mix which is just an edit, and the Cavego Mix, which is slower and quite soulful with funky guitar licks and other disco standards - it's nice, but the tempo is just too slow for me.

If you're a fan of vocal house this is a great example of the genre done right, with thought put into the remixes, and as a package it has a lot to offer. It would work equally at home, at the club or in a bar, and I’m sure it will do well over the coming months.
