Those early 90s Andrew Weatherall remixes have been hanging around my stereo a lot recently- there's something about them that is really pushing my buttons right now. You probably guessed that. There are two remixes of Jah Wobble's Bomba, from his Invaders Of The Heart period (with Natacha Atlas on vocals and in the picture above). The Miles Away Mix is a glorious acid house riot, from the marching band fanfare that opens it to the shouts of 'Musicaaaaaaa' and the almost chaotic clash of rhythms and sounds. Played loud it sounds like the maddest moment of the best party you went to. Slinky and sexy. The bass playing is superb too, obvs.
