Premiere: Tall Black Guy Remixes Lovebirds Upcoming Single
'Icarus' drops via Razor-N-Tape on Record Store Day.
For this release, Razor-N-Tape shines a light on its 45 series with a striking double 7″ package full of relaxed analog soul. Under the Lovebirds moniker, Doering is mostly known for silky-smooth nu-disco and house, but with “Icarus,” he presents the hazy late-night side to his production repertoire with frayed jazzy piano lines and paired-back percussion.
On the remix front, the always reliable Tall Black Guy delivers a ’90s-influenced feel-good cut that oozes sexiness, with an added verse from 80’s Babies thrown in for good measure. On the flip, Moods tweaks the track into a slo-mo stomper with stuttering bass and driving percussion, while Razor-N-Tape’s JKriv strips things back for a sun-tinged interpretation.
The record will drop with stunning full-color artwork, with each mix getting a full-side run, on April 22. In the meantime, you can pre-order the record here, with Tall Black Guy’s remix streaming in full via the player below.
