Out now via Tricky’s False Idols label
False Idols, the label owned and run by Tricky, has today released an EP of remixes of the classic track ‘Same’ from iconic Bristol production duo Smith & Mighty.
Featuring heavenly vocals from Tammy Payne, ‘Same’ saw its first release via !K7 in March 1998 as an exclusive track on their DJ-Kicks, and has since become a cult classic.
Today sees the release of a carefully curated remix package with contributions from Bristol peers including Kahn, Onset, Justin Reverb, Henry Louie, Ray Mighty’s 4th Dub Mix and Rob Smith’s 2019 re-rub, the track echoing into new dimensions, crossing genre boundaries.
Speaking in his very recently released autobiography, Tricky describes Smith & Mighty as “one of the foundations of Bristol music, the real deal, proper musicians, with no bullshit about them. They were retiring to the point where you were lucky if you could even get them out to DJ sometimes.”
The ‘Same Remixes’ package is then a confluence and a celebration of a host of Bristol inspirations – a re-affirmation of a great track and its relevance over 20 years later in British music today.
