Carl Cox – Dark Alleys – Circus Recordings

A power-release here from Yousef’s Circus camp as they welcome back the mighty Cox for his second full single on the label. An apt working title for sure as the original conjures up sweaty images of dark industrial warehouses from yesteryear. I’m sure Yousef could have his choice for remixers on a release like this, but this time Deetron and Nic Fanciulli do the honours. Both enhance further on the original taking things in two very different but interesting directions. For me Nic’s mix pips it with its chunky bass and a relentless groove that just begs to be played! World class stuff – as to be expected when this all-star cast.
