James Curd I Am One I Am Many

James CurdI Am One, I Am Many


Adelaide-based James Curd presents the 4th instalment from his already essential Pronto label, delivering a hyper-infectious original alongside a bumper pack of top-drawer remixes.

First up Adelphi Music Factory add weight to the drums, they stay true to the intention of the original, retaining the track’s key parts while tastefully reforming them as an unfettered main room banger. 

The UK’s notorious party-starters Make A Dance construct an almost entirely new track around the iconic vocal. A contagious organ hook drives the energy as saucer-eyed sweeps and off-kilter synths meander across the panorama.

Esteemed producer and DJ Nenor remix, takes the track into deeper territory, Nenor strips back the instrumentation to serve a mesmerising heads-down roller.

Completing a staggering remix ensemble, Dutch duo T.U.R.F. ride in with their typically house-rooted ‘Re-Jack’. Full-bodied and aimed squarely at the club, their dubbed-out mix strips the parts to their barest essentials, altering and reframing them over a bumping arrangement.

This is another pulsating package from Proto, with each refined version poised to ignite an array of floors.
