‘Stratos Bleu’ marked some of the band’s biggest stylistic changes to date. Though long lauded as one of the UK’s top bands in funk and soul circles, their album was a decidedly rawer analogue affair drawing on influences as diverse as Detroit techno, Bristol’s underground as well as the party starting breakbeat funk they are so well known for.
Hitting #1 position in the Official UK Dance Charts on release week, and grabbing the Album of the Day accolade from BBC 6 Music proved the band were entirely right. Given the strength of the source material it was only right to issue a remixes album on the project and there was no shortage of producers lining up to get involved in the brilliant and eclectic, ‘Stratos Bleu Remixed’.
Now in 2021, Smoove himself feels that there are even more versions to be had and since he’s well known as a masterclass remixer himself, he’s only gone on and breathed some more life into a selection of tracks, ready to set the dancefloor alight. Don’t miss this one. It’s huge!
