John Roberts remixes MCDE

Here’s one to file away in the ‘good news’ category: a John Roberts remix of Motor City Drum Ensemble will feature on an upcoming EP to be released on MCDE’s own imprint.

The 1206/07 EP includes Plessow’s previously released “Monorail” and “There’s A Truth”, but it’s the aforementioned John Roberts remix (of “Monorail”) that is exciting us most, with the Dial producer having just dropped a stunning album of crackly deep house dripping in subaquatic piano and moody atmospherics.

Although a release date hasn’t been set yet, it looks like being only the second 12″ on MCDE in 2010, following The Revenge’s immensely popular 105 BPM remake of Michael Wycoff’s “Looking Up To You”.

The EP also comes with two retro sounding cuts from the mysterious Hundred 20 (we suspect Danilo is involved with this) and a single contribution from the Creative Swing Alliance aka Pablo Valentino and Steven-J.
