Sun-kissed UK garage from one of the style's key collectives.
Various - Juiced (Kiwi Remixes)
The new remix EP from Conducta's Kiwi Rekords is a family affair, as labelmates remix each other's tracks from the Kiwi catalogue. The standout is Sharda's remix of Sammy Virji's "Shapes (Oh Will)," which amps up the original's joy and excitement while also making it tougher. It's a stellar example of the blissed out, major-key side of UK garage Conducta has been pushing for the last few years. After the drop, it moves closer to house with the addition of a chopped piano sample. Endlessly cheery, it's guaranteed to get even the most po-faced head grinning. Though the other remixers (Mind Of A Dragon, Conducta) add less to the originals, this EP is still very worthwhile. It's proof that UK garage is still a place of innovation and creativity.
