Grace - Not Over YetPRFCT007 - July 25th, 2011
As far classic releases from the Perfecto Records back catalogue go there are few more generation defining than Grace "Not Over Yet". Originally reaching number 6 in the UK top 40 charts "Not Over Yet" was a major cross over record who's legacy continues today through the countless compilation albums who have hosted it and the long list of unofficial remixes that have continued to breathe new life into it. A huge Sasha and Digweed classic (as featured on their legendary 1994 Renaissance compilation album) this infectious record from Paul Oakenfold was a firm favourite for a variety of A list djs, from an even wider variety of genre backgrounds, from across the globe.
With Perfecto Records beginning the process of re-releasing a carefully picked selection of highlight tracks from the label's back catalogue - what better way to begin than with "Not Over Yet".
Max Graham & Protoculture are two names synonymous with quality - both in terms of music writing and song construction as well as high end production quality. As such we are honoured to have them lead the charge on the remixes package with their stunning, peak time melodic interpretation. Coming together in the studio they have firmly stamped this seminal classic with their trademark super slick fluidity, sparkling dynamics and serious drive. This really is Perfecto!
Hot talent Jonas Hornblad's remix - as featured on Paul Oakenfold's forthcoming mix album "Nevermind the Bollocks…here's Paul Oakenfold" - follows the classy lines of the original in terms of retaining the riff structure and vibe, but adding the trademark clarity, punch and definition that have made this young producer one of the most in demand remixers of the scene right now.
Perfecto artist Robert Vadney completes the package with a cool trancey remix filled with intricate layers and fx that show off this man's attention to detail. This version has become a regular set intro at many of Paul Oakenfold's live shows this year as well being used to open his CD for the ASOT 500 mix compilation album which was released earlier this year by Armada
