Silicone Soul

1
Since first appearing on Scotland’s seminal Soma label in 1998, DJ-production duo Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie, aka Silicone Soul, have occupied a special place in the over-crowded field of electronic dance music through the depth and quality of their recordings, plus an innate understanding of music‘s grand heritage and its constant development. Having released four critically acclaimed albums, holding residencies at some of Europe’s most celebrated clubs, scooping numerous DJ Mag award nominations and even refusing to appear on Top Of The Pops after storming the UK charts with ‘Right On’. Silicone Soul lead the way celebrating ten years of their Darkroom Dubs label while winning dance floors across the world.

new remixes.

‘Right On, Right On’ and on and on and on… The duo’s iconic Cutis Mayfield sampling single came in many shapes and sizes around the turn of the century. Beginning as ‘Right On 4 Tha Darkness’ in 1999, it then became ‘Right On, Right On’ in 2000 with that legendary hypnotic bongo loop that brought the soaring strings and warm jacking groove together so exceptionally well that another version popped up a year later; with added vocals from Louise Clare Marshall, ‘Right On!’ smashed the UK mainstream, hitting number 15 in the official charts… And led to the Glasgow duo famously declining an offer to go on Top Of The Pops. Two decades later and they still don’t regret that decision.

“We’ve had a lot of remix and licensing requests recently for 'Right On, Right On’ with even a dodgy progressive house cover version appearing back in January. Soma’s release schedule was sadly full, so we thought, f**k it, let’s do a re-release on our own Darkroom Dubs label, and as it’s been 20 years since the first release, we thought it would be perfect timing for an anniversary edition too. Conor Dalton, from Glowcast Mastering in Berlin, was kind enough to remaster the original direct from DAT and to complete the package, we’ve also included a new dynamite remix from Fango, with Matthias Tanzmann revisiting his much-loved remix for a 2020 version.”

Warmer than it’s ever sounded before, the new Glowcast remaster comes complete with remixes from Matthias Tanzmann and Fango. Originally released in 2012 as part of Soma’s own 20 year anniversary, Tanzmann squeezes every ounce of soul possible from the percussion elements while Italian Fango gives ‘Right On Right On’ a right old shoeing with a massive lolloping disco bassline, marching pianos and an injection of funk positivity 2020 has sorely missed so far.

20 years deep, still taking us through the darkness, still focused on a bright future. We need music like this now more than ever. Stay tuned for more Darkroom Dubs dispatches very soon.

Available now from our Bandcamp & Beatport (12th June for all other digital stores & streaming platforms).

Sometimes you need to look back to look forward; marking the start of a new decade, Silicone Soul celebrate 20 years since their game-changing breakthrough hit with a brand new remastered version and two new remixes.
