The second in a series of killer new remixes of Josh Wink’s acid house classic ‘Higher State of Consciousness’ sees Max Cooper and Alter Ego step up on duties. ‘Higher State Of Consciousness Remixes Vol 2’ lands 10th May on Strictly Rhythm and follows massive remixes from Damain Lazaraus and Mathew Jonson.
Josh Wink’s seminal ‘Higher State Of Consciousness’, originally released in 1995 and last year honoured as one of Rolling Stone’s ‘Greatest Dance Songs Of All Time’, is a track that continues to find fans amongst every new generation of ravers that discover it and still sounds as fresh as it did day one. Now with an incredible new set of remixes from Max Cooper and Alter Ego jaws will be dropping all over again.
As an artist who cites Josh Wink as a key influence both as a producer and DJ, Max Cooper’s remixes were always going to be very special indeed. A highly celebrated producer known for his intricate production and stunning audio-visual live shows, Cooper opens the three track EP with the first of two edits, ‘Higher State Of Consciousness (Max Cooper Radio Edit)’. The track is a four minute sonic journey that whilst retaining much of the original, including the iconic acid line, is complimented in signature style with rich texture and detail, cinematic and dystopian but not without a killer radio-ready breakdown.
