Holy smoke. What a banner month this is gonna be!!
The opening song from my Hawke album +++ gets the remix treatment from some of the best underground house music producers in the Americas.
Anthony Mansfield is having a banner year with sought after releases on his own Hector Works label and remixes for The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Sleazy McQueen and Hot Toddy. Here Mansfield musically stays close to the original “Monday Comes And Goes” and adds a bit of effective dancefloor pump and magic.
Brazil’s Jota Wagner, founder of Lunatic Jazz set out to create his own club remixes of the track and I was so enamored with this dubby, percussive house music treatment that I added some of my own elements to create a collaborative remix with serious late night appeal.
The Sexicanz, led by the enigmatic Dmitri from San Francisco, provide a raw analog Basic Channel inspired reworking. Dmitri has a history of memorable singles on Robsoul, Deepfunk, and his own C.O.A. label.
In an effort to extend the collaborative spirit of +++, we worked with remixin.com to hold a remix contest for “Monday Comes And Goes.” Out of an impressive number of quality entries Los Angeles via Australia DJ/Producer and Bombeatz artist Craig Williams hit the mark with his Last Minute Jump Around Remix.
