Solo is a dub-infused 4 track single that blends Laura’s ethereal vocals with Spider’s hard-edged lyrics about the refugee crisis and with The Cardigan’s Magnus Sveningsson as a guest on bass.
Part 1 – the more Dub-heavy version is followed by Part 2 – a more upbeat high-tempo version.
Duncan Forbes’s (3Head’s producer and remixer) “Mix for the Guvnor” references Al and Duncan’s mutual past involvement with the legend that was Andrew Wetherall and has been produced with him very much in mind. This is essentially the original track and has been graced with yet more of Duncan’s tweaks, and once more is a deeply moving testament to the overlooked and ignored individuals in our society blending Laura’s ethereal ambient vocals with Spider’s toasting lyrics.
3head vs Uncle Fester on Acid – So Low (Jekyll & Hyde Mix)
On U Sound’s very own Pats Doktor delivers his remix of SoLo – a dub-heavy remix that brings the strings to the fore and dissects and rebuilds the track to a crescendo.
