The Brothers’ ‘Knee Deep Remixed’ singles series continues with a new set of tasty reworks of ‘Rock It’. Chicago legend Terry Hunter works up a deep and hypnotising organic groove, laced with a tapestry of sweeping synths and elaborate electronica, giving a cheeky wink to the old school. Meanwhile, The Brothers’ very own Edi Carlucci injects dirty bass stabs and moody synths, creating a chunky slice of heat for the small hours.
The Brothers label ‘Knee Deep Remixed’ series sees top German house production duo Knee Deep get a complete overhaul of their fantastic back catalogue – a transformation into a brand new selection of singles which will later be released as a full compilation.
