The consistently excellent ESP Institute reach into their sizeable archive of material to re-evaluate Sea Power & Change, the 2010 release from Portuguese producer Tiago under the same name, calling on some of their celebrated friends and contemporaries to rework the tracks. Long term ESP aficionados Soft Rocks man the A Side with a supreme revision of "Strangefruit", realigning the track to a spine tinglingly good, smacked out dub boogie main frame that immediately brings forth a craving for relaxed summer nights with a bottomless jug of sangria for company. Fresh from a stunning turn on the fledgling Beats In Space label, Secret Circuit brings his mangled analogue stylings to "Wild Combination" which takes on 23rd Century visions of the Wild West as it canters forth. Finally a glistening, dubwise horizontally inclined re-appropriation of "Yesterday Is Dead" is delivered courtesy of Johnny Nash, providing a sumptuous end to another fine release from one of our favourite labels.
