The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
A week of absence certainly is noticeable in this constantly connected world, but with the ‘maintenance’ (if you will) of VS being more of a hobby, I often times need to cut back on the quantity in order to ensure the qualitative aspect is maintained. With that out of the way, let’s concentrate on this week’s ReWind feature, which stands in stark contrast to the Halloween recommendation from a fortnight ago.
James Holden‘s 1999 debut release under Silver Planet Recordings was a bit of an unexpected success, with Horizons being licensed to INCredible, Sony’s dance music offshoot. In the following years, he patiently churned out single after single, and then, in 2003, his other grand success knocked on the door.
Landing in the Loaded Records catalogue, Nothing featured Julie Thompson on the vocals and accumulated an array of mixes and remixes along its life, one of which truly stood out from the bunch. I am of course talking about the dark, eerily atmospheric progressive number that is the 93 Returning Mix. Some say this leans more towards house, others say it’s trance, but either way, it’s very difficult to ignore. For those of you in a hurry, know only this: the 93 Returning Mix is quite possibly one of the best examples of what epic goosebumps some well placed vocal chops can induce.
If you’ve known about it for donkey’s years, good for you. If you’ve just now discovered it, good for you too. For you and for others like you who enjoy this kind of music, here’s the fantastic 93 Returning Mix (in case I haven’t mentioned it enough times) of Holden & Thompson, Nothing.
See you next week. 🙂
