One of the best things about house and techno is that the artists contributing to this stylistic spectrum routinely pay homage to the classics. Few of dance music's younger fans likely remember 808 State, but UK duo Bicep have offered up a remix to the group's 1990 track "In Yer Face" sure to leave the track fresh in everyone's memory.
Where the original was characterized by the experimental, almost video-gamey sound design for which 808 State came to be known, Bicep's remix of the track fits its with more subtle, introspective elements. A simplified bass line emphasizes one melodic tangent from the source material, giving it more a contemporary club appeal that will ensure it placement in its fair share of after hours DJ sets.
According to Resident Advisor, Bicep will also release an "acid dub" of the track - perhaps closer to September 30th, which is the official release date for the remix pack. Until then, listen to their remix of 808 State's "In Yer Face" on a quality sound system and tell us what you think.
