If you've been out and about this summer, there's a fair chance that you'll have danced hard to Pangaea's fine remix of Loleatta Holloway's "Stand Up", a gospel-influenced screamer that was repeatedly sampled by house producers in the mid 1990s. Pangaea's version first appeared on his killer, double A-side "2 Remixes" white label back in August, and here gets an official Salsoul Records release. It's amongst the producer's most potent revisions to date, with Holloway's brilliant vocal rising above a tough-as-teak fusion of speaker-troubling sub-bass, clap-happy, two-step drum machine beats and layered tribal percussion. Heavy and carnival-friendly, it's quickly turning into one of the dance anthems of 2017.
