Ransom Note Records are delighted to welcome back Freelance Disco Consultant and Beat Raconteur, Mr Sean Johnston with 2 (yes, TWO!!!) bumper deal mixes of C.A.R.’s 2023 single Anzu, ricocheting off each other in perfect harmony. Perhaps better known to the rave going public as Hardway Bros or the nourisher of the ALFOS flame, Sean has been a stalwart of the UK underground for over three decades, amounting a truly enviable back catalogue of dance floor destroyers and party pounders.

In true Johnston form, he attacks Anzu from two deadly precise, but separate angles. Anzu (Hardway Bros Remix) is both a four on the floor stomper and simultaneously a delicate, almost histrionic synth workout. Highlighting Chloe C.A.R.’s beautiful vocals and arpeggios, Sean adds a few of his own trademark flourishes and slings an enormous rhythm section underneath. The bowel quivering bass line only to be outdone by the quake-making kick drum, which take turn in firing low frequency shots into our chest cavities at metered intervals. Duality in the disco!

Not content with dicing Anzu in just that one way, Sean’s also provided Anzu (Hardway Bros Conqueror Knock Dub). With a nod to his musical heritage, this version pulls on sounds from UK Acid House Revolution of the early nineties, with only a fraction of the violence associated with most revolutions. We are, however, coshed over the bonce with all manner of aural weapons: from funky bass guitars, to House Organs and flanged modulations (the insalubrious source of which is not clear), we are pummelled into submission. By which we mean that we are in fact dancing our tits off on the floor, sweating profusely, whistles in mouths, arms in the air.
