This second sampler from the album highlights three stellar cuts, showcasing Dr Packer‘s expert abilities to produce dancefloor-ready versions of house and disco essentials.
Up first, Dr Packer turns his hand to a Defected catalogue essential, Fish Go Deep & Tracey K ‘The Cure & The Cause’, adding his signature disco flare to the club classic. Up next he remixes Jean Jacques Smoothie‘s 2001 release ‘2People’, taking the grooving club gem to a new dimension with a jacked-up, driving bassline. Finally, the Australian maestro takes on a more recent dancefloor number, remixing Horse Meat Disco and Amy Douglas‘ ‘Let’s Go Dancing’, upping the ante with gradual builds, percussion-filled breaks and an unwavering groove destined to set dancefloors alight.
If this sampler is anything to go by, ‘Dr Packer’s Different Strokes Volume 2’ is set to be a stunning album from one of disco’s brightest stars.
