Press Release :
Natural Self follows on from the release of his LP "My Heart Beats Like A Drum" with a single collecting some great remixes of tracks from the album and one exclusive cover version.

First up, Prince Fatty, who has been making waves with his authentic but modern reggae and dub project, puts "Midnight Sun" through his mixing deck to give two versions (including a heavily dubbed out mixdown). Pure sunshine vibes, with Prince Fatty drafting in his crew of veteran players to turn out a brand new piece of music.

Next is a version of Radiohead's "Street Spirit". Natural Self told us "I originally did this on a whim - it's one of my favourite Radiohead tunes. It was going round in my head one day and I realised it actually fits with the tune that DJ Shadow sampled for "Organ Donor". Mmm, good idea for a mash up I thought. I then immediately realised I don't like mash ups. I'm a snob like that. So one Sunday afternoon I set about doing it over from scratch. I liked the way it came out so I played it to Tru Thoughts's A&R Robert Luis. We decided I should give it the proper treatment. I re-played the organ, re-did the vocal and laced the drums sampling a recording from an unreleased Broken Keys session. This is how it came out." This will also be released on the Tru Thoughts Limited Edition vinyl series 'Black Gold'.

As well as the more head nod grooves Natural Self remixes "All Static" into one of his unique percussive dancefloor nuggets. With Brazilian and Tropical influences and some space age synth noise this is a pure modern club rocker.

Jeremy Sole provides a soulful take on "Midnight Sun" feat. Todd Simon (who has provided horns for Mayer Hawthorne and Kanye West). Jeremy Sole is a Los Angeles based DJ, radio presenter on KCRW and producer. He asked to remix this; he is a big fan of the French singer Elodie Rama who co-wrote and sings on the track.

The remaining three remixes all explore the Beats / Abstract instrumental grooves in their own unique way. Kid Kanevil (First Word) shows why he has been picking up many fans with his fusion of tough drums and electronic sounds. Eliphino has just had one of his tracks licensed to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label and has magazines like XLR8R raving about him. He is definitely a producer to look out for; his remix shows his style perfectly. Yult is a French producer who asked if he could try and remix something from the album. We're so glad he asked....Woah! This one is heavy! He took loads of parts from the original and completely twisted them. Year 3000 type beats. Look out for more from him soon.

Make sure you check all the tracks....we definitely think there's something on here that you're really going to enjoy.
