Hot on the heels of his recent Love Attack EP on Dirt Crew, Steve Mill hits back with the ‘Poor’s Ego EP’ on his own imprint, Simples. Mill digs back into the past to revive this lively deep house cut and hands it over to a broad range of remixers for their versions. Man of the moment, Crackazat, steps up to re-interpret the title cut adding his signature jazzy lines and keys, delivering in the pick of the pack. There’s further remix work by Brabe and Piem, padding things out, with Mill’s own MPC Jam leaving impressive mark on the deep house dancefloor!

On this release, Steve Mill steps out with his ‘Poor’s Ego EP’ that is stacked to the max with remixes by Crackazat, Barcelona’s Piem, and Brabe. Bristolian Ben Jacobs aka Crackazat opens with his version of the title cut, cleverly crafting his own jazz sample, combining it with the original vox and chords resulting a rolling dusty house groove.
Piem delivers a bass-heavy, tech house version where he uses the vocals as the stabs to make this more of a peak time choice. Brabe’s remix is for the warm-up hours. You’ll witness more clever use of the vocal lines here, Brabe adding his own pads to cosy up and surround the original composition.
On Steve Mill’s MPC Jam we see the label head flip the title cut, working a more musical affair this time where piano chords create a feel-good vibe reminding us of the long hot summer that’s just past. This collection closes out with the Original Mix where Mill’s distinctive sound – full melodies, loads of warmth, and lashings of feel-good vibes – is on full display.
You can now listen to the full premiere of Crackazat’s remix exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
