Entitled Magic, the EP follows Saturday Night Manifesto, the New Zealand producer’s fine return to form last summer after a three year absence. The title track (fully streamable below) sees a collaboration with ex-gospel singer turned R&B artist B. Slade, creating the kind of soulful, melody-drenched house we’ve come to expect from the producer.
Further excitement will be drawn from the news that none other than Carl Craig has been drafted in to re-edit the track for the release. Craig and Chicoine are of course longtime associates, with Chicoine releasing several records on Craig’s Planet E imprint. Complementing the ediit from the Detroit legend are an instrumental version of the title track and a “New Mix” of “UHF”, a track that originally appeard on last year’s Hit It Or Quit It Radio Revue compilation curated by Recloose.
