Download: Sheen Bros. "It's So Hot (The Miracles Club Remix)"

Exclusive
Label: Scion A/V

Coming next week from Scion A/V's oft-reliable singles series is a collaborative tune by Cosmo Baker and 4th Pyramid, who have donned the moniker Sheen Bros. for their joint productions. The duo's "It's So Hot" tune, which features vocals from Greg Nice, will drop on August 2, along with this piano-heavy remix from Portland house revivalists The Miracles Club. The classically minded track is full of the outfit's trademark sounds: Funky basslines, bouncing drum-machine rhythms, bubbly percussion, and smooth melodies abound here. We look forward to hearing the original and more when this record is available.
