A new version of the cult favourite will appear in May.
The record was originally released on Christabel Records in 1999, and is probably best known for its feel-good B-side "Fannie Likes 2 Dance." Stripped & Chewed's reissue, however, comes with a slight twist. In addition to an extra track called "Beautiful," the upcoming version features a different version of "Fanny Likes 2 Dance" called "Mimi Likes 2 Dance." Sanders reached out to Berlin-London promoters Louche (apparently long-time fans of the release), who subsequently shared his explanation on Facebook.
I changed the name to Mimi Likes 2 Dance in honor of my wife. To put out a track with an ex's name would not be cool. So it's not because she requested it. She didn't know about until I showed her the test pressing. It was a nice surprise for her.2000 (And We're Still Here) is likely one of the most keenly anticipated reissues of the year so far. An under-the-radar favourite for some time, it's steadily become known outside the realms of dedicated house classicists thanks to a placement on Joy Orbison's 2014 Essential Mix and a failed Kickstarter campaigning raising money for a repress. Stripped & Chewed's reissue is due out in May. In the meantime, listen to "Fannie Likes 2 Dance" via the player below.
The track is exactly like the original except for that vocal change! Even using all the same music stems and the EP includes a bonus track called 'Beautiful.' This repress was about honoring my wife, giving a little extra and providing the track for those who have been requesting it!
