The Heavy - How Do You Like Me Now ?



The Heavy How Do You Like Me Now
The Heavy - How Do You Like Me Now?
(CDS/Digital) Counter Records COUNT026/COUNTDNL026, 2009-09-13

The Heavy return with next single from their forthcoming album, The House That Dirt Built, a widescreen funk epic, moving from JB's shuffle to crashing break, Animals guitar and horn fanfares, a huge build which is set to bring the house down wherever it’s played. As if the original wasn’t enough, The Heavy have compiled a superb package of remixes. Fellow West Countryman Joker, gives the original a huge dollop of Purple and comes up with something sounding like Timberlake smoking skunk in St Pauls. Sometime Mowgli-collaborator Solo goes more down a 4/4 route, building up the congas etc into a perfect example of what he calls "midget house". Finally, Ghost takes the tempo down and emphasises the mournful backing vocals for a suitably majestic finale. As if this wasn’t enough, The Heavy have also thrown in a bonus track, Tell It Like It Is, a country-fried hoe-down which emphasises just how good Swaby’s voice is.
