London artist Rex the Dog, aka Jake Williams, takes his creative vision to Southern Fried Records with the lighthearted EP, Do You Feel What I Feel. The featured original track showcases Irrepressibles frontman Jamie Mcdermott, whose fluid voice breathes life through the production’s effortlessly catchy arpeggiated bassline and shimmering retro synths. “Bonn,” an additional original piece, is a darker, faster house throwback that takes you on a spacey ride with much musical variance and percussive strength.
Southern Fried brought on some stellar remix artists to interpret “Do You Feel What I Feel.” The lovely duo Tiger & Woods slow it down with disco flare, drawing on lingering underwater vocal chops for an uplifting trip. Riva Starr takes that straight house approach, accelerating the original melody with atmospheric elements and bubbling synths, reworking the original gem into his own club masterpiece. Jacques Renault has a dreamier take on the track, retaining that indie dance flavor for an upbeat vocal remix, incorporating a galactic break for an obscure ethereality.
This EP includes interpretations for even the most discerning appetites, and it is no wonder this timeless vocal piece has inspired so much creative vision. Give it a listen!
