With its classic Detroit strings and delicate piano melodies, this beautifully simple deep houser from Birmingham natives Ethyl & Flori was crying out for a weighty Motor City remix. Step forward former Underground Resistance man Rolando, who delights in turning the fragile but calming original into a pulsating chunk of classic D-town techno. In typical Rolando fashion, his "Shelter" rework pushes the synth-strings to the fore, giving them space to shine on a mix that should delight anyone who likes their dance music sweet and emotion-rich. There's also a neat bonus cut in the shape of "THD_001" - all bespoke tribal percussion, bubbling synths and heady vocal edits. Impressive stuff.
