The man of many names - Zed Bias, Maddslinky and one half of Phuturistix - is back with this second single from his Make A Change album on Tru Thoughts. Featuring the vocals of Tawiah, the original of "Further Away" is big. Though Tawiah coos softly during the verses, things get huge during the choruses as Maddslinky's orchestral electronica takes over from the gentle, gliding jazz chords of the verse. Perhaps a natural choice to deliver a remix, NYC's Falty DL is a soulful future-garage head who has been playing plenty of ZB stuff in his DJ sets of late. Quite startlingly on the down low, DL's mix is stirring in a whole new way - supplying a doom-laden half-step shuffle that allow the vocals to really breathe. More upbeat, Funk Butcher steps in with a hell of a mix which manages to sound like Adonis jamming with MJ Cole. Veteran British producer El-B takes a different tack - using a set of live sounds, such as a funky Hammond, to set off a sweaty nu-funk-meets-garage mix. In stark contrast, Fat City/3024's bass warrior Illum Sphere cooks up a creeping, claustrophobic mix that constantly rises in volume in tandem with Tawiah's vocals and threatens to go ballistic at any minute. A hugely bright, Afro-pop mix comes courtesy of Tru Thoughts' Hint - more punchy is the mix by upcoming D&B stars Dawn Raid. A special mention also to Polar Pair's mix, which manages to update the classic drum sample from Schooly D's "PSK:What Does It Mean?" and create something that almost resembles orchestral dubstep.
