Peaches feat. Rodney P & Terry Hall
Released: 10 September 2007
Celebrating Sunday Best’s landmark 50th release and in the shops for the 10th September, the latest single to be drawn from the album is a high-octane reworking of the Strangler’s classic anthem ‘Peaches’. Originally released 30 years ago, ‘Peaches’ was the Stranglers breakthrough hit, reaching number 8 in the UK charts and etching itself into the collective psyche of beach-bums across the globe.
Fronted by UK Hip-Hop architect, Rodney P, who adds his own inimitable slant to the track’s subject matter, the Dub Pistols have given ‘Peaches’ iconic bass line a new lease of life, as erstwhile Specials front-man Terry Hall’s unique vocals colour the chorus.
Once again, Sunday Best have compiled a formidable team of remixers that takes in Utah Saints whose blistering take cranks up the bass action for a throbbing club smasher that is taking dance-floor’s by storm for the lucky few who’ve had an up-front copy. A1 People go straight for the jugular with a ferociously paced anthem, twisting the bass into a speaker busting slab of filthy house. The inimitable MYNC Project’s late night minimal stylings give ‘Peaches’ a deeper hue before the original riff bursts through, creating a unique floor rinser that is already seeing some heavy club action. The Dub Pistols step up for a heavy-duty Breaks work-out that takes Rodney P’s vocal and ups the ante on all fronts. Production duo Ortzroka turn in a filthy groove that sits perfectly under Rodney’s risqué diatribe. King Kooba complete the set taking the track on a laid back tip, adding smoky Jazz grooves and old skool funk extras.
