Look for Herbert - A Pair of Remixes. Double A side backed with a remix of Moloko.

Great record, wonderful voice of the sympathic singer Louie Austen. A Side quality sound, good mastering and pressing. B Side classical lowtech dub cheap track based on Diana Ross - Upside down.

Here we have Mr Herbert in a phenomenal 'Balearic' house mood, with string arrangements and the crooning voice of Louie Austen escalating to much thrills. This should have been a worldwide hit as big as Tom Jones' 'Sexbomb', and it is so much classier. A personal favorite of Herbert in his DJ sets too, which he uses to end up on a mellower and uplifting note after two hours of dirty experimental swinging craziness. He often plays this together with Hardrive 'Deep Inside', his own 'The Audience' and -yes!- the mighty Robin S' 'Show me love'. Utterly thrilling, epic yet delicate hands-in-the-air anthem!

Louie Austen's Rat-Pack vocals go in for another dancefloor treatment on his HOPING single. While the original has a romantic, upbeat feel, the various remixers put their own spin on the track while maintaining a steady 4/4 beat. But what can you expect from a track that has lyrics basically begging you to dance? Herbert does a slightly darker and more mysterious mix, keeping the strings to a minimum. The Martini Bros., on the other hand, highlight the strings in a slightly noisier mix. Jimi Tenor does more of that lounge-jazz he's become famous for, while Filippo Moscatello heads straight for the floor with an Italo-disco bassline. Sugar B's mix doesn't really differ from the original too much, except for some reverb effects. Definitely a single for the househeads.

The Herbert mix of this track is sick. Louie Austen's amazing vocal is framed perfectly by trademark Herbert minimal beats and the phenomenal use of string samples.

Louie Austen croons over the top of a deep/tech house bassline. Very, very original. Think Bing Crosby meets Dirk Diggler.
