Following a steady stream of remixes from the likes of Maceo Plex and DJ Tennis, Maribou State have shared another new edit of their North Downs-featuring ‘Kingdom’, this time courtesy of British DJ/producer, Adesse Versions.
Having previously released on labels such as Numbers, Delusions Of Grandeur and Ostgut Ton (under his own name), the producer (aka Kevin Gorman) delivers a subtle re-work, drawing out the vocals of North Downs’ Jack Sibley across a lean reconstruction of the original’s percussive, hand-clapped rhythms. “The original has fantastic drums, melodies and vocals, but with room for me to give it a little more energy” he explains. “This was one of the most enjoyable remixes I’ve worked on for a long time”.
The original version of the songs was just one of a handful of vibe-centric cuts to appear on Maribou State’s acclaimed sophomore album ‘Kingdoms of Colour’, which received huge support from the likes of Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Nemone and many more following its release in September.
