It’s possible, thanks to YouTube’s tasteful algorithm that Rare Silk’s Storm might have caught your eye whilst scrolling down the recommendations. The American vocal jazz group originally released the cult classic in 1985 as part of their American Eyes LP and it has since become something of a diggers delight, gathering new fans in recent years.
Emotional Rescue and Be With Records have joined forces to release the cut as a stand-alone limited 10” release. On the flip it gets the remix treatment from Alexis Georgopoulos under his Arp project. Having landed on Emotional Rescue previously, he brings that same nimble touch to his rework of Rare Silk’s original, stripping out the vocals and drenching it in echo to craft a tasteful, moody dub.
Storm will be released on 28th May – grab your copy from Emotional Rescue.
