Hallelujah (Andrew Weatherall & Paul Oakenfold & Ewan Pearson remixes) (rsd 21)
How do you tackle a British classic with a remix that’s already ingrained the culture of the last 30 years? Ewan Pearson’s new take on Happy Monday's 'Hallelujah' sounds fresh, from bringing Kirsty McColl’s backing vocals from the Steve Lillywhite mix to the fore.
The darker synth bass makes it remarkably easy to slip into a contemporary set, with its lo-slung robotic funk. Shaun William Ryder remains high in the mix, never sounding better, or head to the dub to get twisted into the dark throb. This 12" also includes the legendary Club mix by Andrew Weatherall & Paul Oakenfold plus the original plus the original track remastered.
