Southern Boy

Scion A/V
Sneak's original is a languid, sprawling, bluesy Derrick Carter-esque groove with a deadpan semi-rapped vocal, though at a radio edit length of just over three minutes, we could use a club mix here. Then there are the remixes: Jesse Rose stays close with a tweaked up version featuring a not entirely successful reversed vocal, 12th Planet and Fitch do the discordant breaks while Austin, Texas-based Dubbel Dutch does an unusual take with shades of dubbed out UK garage. But predictably, it's Radio Slave who delivers the mix of deepest impact with a long, linear dub characterised by precise, tight percussion.
