On Monday, Nicole Moudaber ropped her previously unreleased 2008 remix of the classic track “Musik Xpress” on Skint Entertainment. The release will be available exclusively on Beatport. This 20th anniversary package gives the tune a new direction, and provides a new generation of electronic music fans the opportunity to appreciate some of the finest house music from the 90s. Previously released as X-Press 2’s debut single on the legendary Junior Boys Own imprint, “Musik Xpress” is still one of the top dance floor tracks of all time.
When asked about the remix, Moudaber reminisced, “I was just starting to produce, dabble and discover this world. I was approached by the label manager back then, I knew him from London and he played at my parties a few times. I delivered the mix, even got paid for it but it never saw the light, maybe because my name didn’t mean much back then. They heard it recently by mistake on a random hard drive they found at Skint, and I’m very pleased it will finally get released.”
Moudaber’s remix of “Muzik Xpress” takes the original down an alley full of soulful techno synths, throwing it out the other end flawlessly executed for late night dance floor madness. Still memorable by that reminiscent vocal snippet from the original, this is just one reminder of Nicole’s ability both now and then.
