Listen to Recloose Remix Motor City Drum Ensemble
- Words: Tim Gentles
Veteran New Zealand-via-Detroit DJ/producer Recloose has remixed one of Motor City Drum Ensemble's now-classic series of "Raw Cuts." Originally released in 2009 via Danilo Plessow's own MCDE imprint, "Raw Cuts #5" is the first track to be remixed for a forthcoming compilation of such remixes, which will be issued by MCDE parent label Faces. Recloose's version transforms the gritty vibe of the original track into something altogether more sophisticated, and features tunneling strings and diva vocals layered over crisp, mid-tempo house beats. Although there are no further details available for the upcoming Motor City Drum Ensemble remix record, Recloose's new production can be heard below.
