• ed solo & skool of thought When I Was a Yout (KRAFTY KUTS remix) (12", £5.95)

    label: Against the Grain

    Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought’s critically acclaimed debut album, "Random Acts of Kindness", was hailed as ’seriously outstanding’ and a ’breath of fresh air’ in the music press. Following hot on its’ heels comes the final single from the album, which will be released on limited edition "buzz saw" shaped vinyl. Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought’s original 2006 version of "When I Was A Yout" quickly became a classic and was described by DJ Magazine as ’simply one of the finest dubwise tracks of all time". Now for 2008, label mate Krafty Kuts has worked his magic once again, with a remix which is already gathering pace and dominating dance floors, as well as winning support from numerous taste makers. The result is a tasteful, subtle groover, which avoids all the usual reggae sample clichés and produces a new classic in the making. However, let’s not overlook track two on this double A side release. ’Life Gets Better’ featuring Darrison shows the sound of Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought with a more musical consciousness. Think Gorilaz meets Fat Freddies Drop with a breakbeat twist, this bouncing reggae styled offering has been one of their key album tracks and brings a feel good vibe that will warm your cockles this winter!
