REVIEW: Tom Middleton - HEVA (The Remixes) out on Anjunadeep

A true dance music pioneer, Tom Middleton has built up an impressive back catalogue over the past two decades including collaborations with the likes of Aphex Twin, Josh Wink, Adam Freehand, and notably with Mark Pritchard as Global Communication. That along with his solo prowess and memorable remixes for Kerri Chandler, Orbital, Ennio Morricone, Jon Hopkins and more have marked him out as one of the scene’s most respected artists.

2016 sees the return of Tom Middleton to Anjunadeep with a 4 track re-imagining of his 2015 club hit “HEVA”. The package features reworks from two diverse talents, Vincenzo and Geode, plus additional mixes from Tom himself including a stunning ambient production and 2-Step remix.

Both of Tom’s own EP contributions are trademark examples of his deft skill and ingenuity when reworking his own productions. Two diverse takes on an Anjuna anthem.

Next up, we welcome upcoming UK producer and Middleton’s own tipped talent, Geode, with his garage infused club roller, awash with wavering synths and quirky percussive licks.

Anjunadeep legend Vincenzo returns the favour following Tom’s much-loved 2012 remix of ’Sometimes Saturday', offering up a signature melodic rework, complimenting the spacey atmospherics of the original with a hallmark deep rolling bassline. Debuted by James Grant during his live set at Anjunadeep Miami, Vincenzo's deep house cut has already begun the rounds, a peak summer gem.

Enjoy the original version of Heva

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The beloved Tom Middleton has brought the stunning track HEVA last years and now it's time this exceptional beauty to get some appropriate remix  treatments.  Vincenzo provides an excellent melodic deep balearic  house version with chunky grooves, fantastic drums and percussion, xylophone melodies, cinematic strings, heavenly voices and superb tripping out atmosphere that you feel that carry you away to far away planets and galaxies but you don't say no to it. You rather get immersed even more into the sound. Vincenzo sonic soundscapes are mouthwatering so let this happen to you and don't search for consequences. Geode Remix is definitely a pleasant surprise. Classic speed garage sounds soaked and sprinkled with old school elements and superb melodies and heavenly voices for a truly relaxing and very subliminal sonic experience. The Ambient remix is the perfect after clubbing sounds that you will press play in your car and let the worries disappear into the past as you look for a better future. 2-Step remix is equally Ibiza infused with classic house organ riffs and playful smooth arrangement perfect to start tapping your feet and make your way into the heart of the dancefloor!  Anjunadeep at its very best! #PureGold Love it [/content]
