Medlar "Terrell (Bicep's Brooklyn Shuffle)"

Medlar's "Terrell" hit dancefloors hard when it dropped back in June with its Moodymann-like atmospherics. Now, Wolf Music has enlisted UK production duo Bicep to turn in some remixes for the upcoming Wolf 009 sampler EP. Made during the New York leg of the pair's recent tour, "Terrell (Bicep's Brooklyn Shuffle)" moves the track in a subtly different direction. Gone is the original's Tammi Terrell sample, replaced instead by echoed car horns and a spoken word sample that reaffirms the obvious, "New York is the shit man." Musically, the remix retains the original's chunky chords but gains some finger snaps and a strobing '90s US garage snare pattern. The resulting track blends the best of '90s Detroit and gay New York to create a fresh-sounding hybrid that will easily work discerning dancefloors the world over.
