Image: 1584113 On the heels of “The Beast b/w Road Song” 7in release, we revisit Ikebe Shakedown’s back catalog and tap renowned remixer and House producer extraordinaire Brennan Green to do a proper remix of “Tujunga” which flew off the shelves and sold out as a 7in single prior to Ikebe’s self-titled debut album release in 2011.
Brennan’s “Disco Acido” treatment of Tujunga transforms the original afrobeat stomper into a hypnotic, acid house heater similar to his classic acid treatment of the 40 Thieves' Don't Turn It Off. Heavy, warm analog bass permeates the whole track with Ikebe’s stabbing horns punctuating the groove, adding depth to an already DEEP and soulful masterpiece. “Disco Acido Stripped” has Brennan stripping away all the original elements of the track, leaving only his additional remix production. Keeping it in the spirit of the oldschool tribes he’s gathered a selection of analog synths and drum machines including the MKS-80, MC202, RS202, TB303 and TR707 all from the Roland family of synths built in the ‘80s. The B-side features the original “Tujunga” track for those who missed out on the original 7in and a remix by production duo Meridian-West (Ubiquity’s own Thomas PM and Wes “The Mes” Osborne) that keeps the dance-floor grooving with a driving rhythm, thumping bass and spaced-out horns and effects added for good measure.
