Fast FWD to the future of soul with a couple of electronic music’s most influential producers on Fast FWD’s eighth release. John Beltran aligns with Jeremy Ellis with legendary Ron Trent and MKTL (Master Kev and Tony Loreto) on remix duties for a silky, smooth release sure to make dancefloors sweat across the globe.
Lansing, Michigan native John Beltran drops an ultra-sexy joint reminiscent of old school Ubiquity tracks with a touch of Naked Music. Beltran is an artist’s artist with releases spanning a multitude of genres. John’s creative genius has landed him on Carl Craig’s seminal Retroactive label, LTJ Bukem’s Earth 4 Compilation, as well as having one of techno’s most sought after classics “Ten Days of Blue.” On a “Golden Night with You,” Beltran serves up a musical aphrodisiac with a perfect blend of moody chords, elegant vibes and Jeremy Ellis’ ethereal vocals. Sexy sophistication!
In 1990, Prescription Records’ co-founder Ron Trent released his famed classic “Altered States” on Warehouse while he was still in high school. Twenty one years later, Trent is still providing the highest quality with releases on famed labels such as Cajual, Distance and Future Vision. Trent’s remix of “Golden Night With You” is a beautifully arranged soulful, afro-rhythmic gem that wouldn’t be out of place at Francois K’s beloved Body & Soul parties.
New York’s Master Kev and Tony Loreto aka MKTL drive the mix deeper into the night with a Dennis Ferrer style rerub. Individually with releases on labels such as Defected, Code Red, Seasons Limited, CityDeep and West End, the duo MKTL was created after the recent success of their underground rework of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games.” Kev and Tony’s rework is a creeping, hypnotic chugger with seductive chords, synths and stabs. Ellis’ celestial vocals add an emotional lament to the track, tempting an out-of-body experience. MKTL offers two additional mixes each stripping it down a bit more for a dubbier vibe to drop at the perfect time.
