The second instalment in Midnight Shift’s remix series sees Eddie Niguel and Juju & Jordash put their magic touch on already well-received tracks by Iron Curtis (Johannes Paluka) and Detroit veteran Terrence Parker.
On the A-side, duo Juju & Jordash let their love for the jazz and experimental shine through. From a straight-up melodic house number by TP to some form of beautiful ugly, the track leads in with a deceiving pop bassline before turning into a broken, asylum hideout for the deranged. Thankfully for us listeners, it fades off with grace.
‘Never Give Up’ is Iron Curtis’s contribution to the label (Shift 002), which saw two versions of a deeply complex composition and an inclusion in Ian Pooley’s Raveline Mix Session. Here, Eddie Niguel of ‘Absolute’ fame turns the intention into a full onslaught aimed at the clubber’s jugular, pausing just long enough for a twisted break. Another hit out of the ballpark by Eddie?

Great toolkit. The bare and steady kick opening the A side will serve most useful for resetting the club-tone while keeping the hearts beating on the floor. The energy of B1 undergoes a couple of metamorphoses, quite akin to Defekt's output. And finally B2 ends with staggering and exhilarating electronics surrounding the center soothing pads. fsdlkjsbf
