Holy Ghost! - a/jus/ted Remixes
Holy Ghost! release the first of two remix 12"s of singles culled from last year's acclaimed "Dynamics" LP. This one is a perfect example of the consistently fantastic work from a/jus/ted - the pairing of DJ & Producer Justin Strauss (also 1/2 of Whatever/Whatever - and a renowned remixer and DJ of the 80's, 90's, and today) and Teddy Stuart (aka Eddie Mars of UNO NYC).
The remixers take on 2 consecutive singles from Dynamics - both “Okay” and “Bridge & Tunnel” get stripped, tweaked and reworked into 4/4 floor fillers, songs rebuilt from the ground up. Their previous remix of the Blood Orange single “Uncle Ace” has proved that this duo are on an official winning streak, and this 12” is another fantastic document of what they are capable of. a/jus/ted have had steady releses of original material on Plant Music, Southern Fried and Under the Shade, and now back to back break through remixes.
The duo had the following words to say about Holy Ghost!:
"Holy Ghost! has been an integral part of the New York music scene for so long now it seems - it was a pleasure to remix them. We both share an affinity for old analog gear - it seemed like a very natural collaboration.With “Okay” the idea was to build up to a re-imagined vocal and base a track around it. For “Bridge & Tunnel” we thought a more stripped down and chunky club jam would be a nice compliment to the original.”
