The cover master gets reworked.
Enlisting an all-star cast from Todd Terje to Nile Rodgers, Bryan Ferry returned in 2014 with Avonmore, his eleventh post-Roxy Music album. As we’ve come to expect from Ferry, there were impeccable covers to absorb but refreshingly, the lush collection was dominated by dark and romantic originals.
Now the cover master is having his own material reworked for a new EP on The Vinyl Factory. Having remixed ‘Don’t Stop The Dance’ last time round, Idjut Boys breath new life into ‘Avonmore’ with both a pulsating, reverb-drenched journey and a super heavy dub take.
Also an experienced Ferry remixer, Prins Thomas cues up a slow-releasing, italo burner of epic proportions that will leave any dance floor gobsmacked.
And to round things off, Johnson Somerset – Avonmore producer and Ferry collaborator for 20+ years – steps up to deliver his own personal 11 minute interpretation of the material.
Mastered on the EMI 1400 and pressed to 180g heavyweight vinyl, Avonmore Remixed features both a bespoke screen printed thick card outer sleeve and a bespoke inner sleeve.
Limited to 500 copies only, the EP lands on 10 February. Pre-order now from VF Editions.
