REVIEW: Solomon Grey - Broken Light (J_Ashworth mixes) out on Anjunadeep

We welcome back friends of the label Solomon Grey in the form of a pair of textured club reworks of 'Broken Light' (a highlight on their acclaimed self-titled debut LP) from rising British producer Ashworth. Combined they've won widespread BBC Radio support from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Nemone, Monki and B.Traits alongside a slew of underground tastemaker backing from Sasha, Groove Armada, me, Kölsch, Jon Hopkins and many more. Ashworth’s ‘Diffraction’ remix also features on the label’s forthcoming flagship compilation ‘Anjunadeep 08’.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most beloved bands out there must be for me Solomon Grey. Their music is exceptional with lyrics and singing performance that has unique touch and certain eclectic feel. The track Broken Light is reworked perfectly by J_Ashworth in two very exciting versions that will appeal to those who are attracted from deep smooth grooves and excellent haunting atmosphere. Diffraction remix is the more upfront deep melodic prog house version with hypnotic rhythm, xylophone melodies, cinematic strings, dreamy piano chords and excellent application of the impressive vocal. Refraction  remix adopts a much more techy rolling groove, brooding dark bassline, haunting melodies and cinematic strings. It sounds more abstract and cold perfect for winter nights stripped down from the melancholy of Diffraction remix. Just Perfect! #PureGold Love It[/content]
