After 15 months of the music scene being in suspended animation due to the COVID pandemic, finally things are opening up again. UK funk/soul legends The Haggis Horns are bouncing back now with a series of remixes of tracks from their previous albums on Haggis Records.

At the start of June, Abstract Orchestra band leader Rob Mitchell delivered a J Dilla style hip-hop remix to the vocal track "Give It Up (Don't Take Part In The Madness)" from the 2020 album "Stand Up For Love".

Now comes a second remix, this time via Germany's top hip-hop/breakbeat producers/remixers CMC & Silenta from Roca Records.

They've given an electro twist to the original old school hip-hop/funk track "Take It Back" from the 2017 album "One Of These Days" which featured guest UK MC Doc Brown. The original rap is still there as are the backing vocals, funk guitar licks, The Haggis Horns' legendary brass section and trombone and sax solos. They've swapped the live funk drums and bass for a four-to-the-floor funky electro boogie shuffle that will boom from club and festival speakers once we're back to dancing together again.

A nice club-friendly version of "Take It Back" that could definitely crossover from the funk/soul community into the electronic music scene with ease. It's good to have The Haggis Horns back once again releasing music and finding new followers beyond their traditional fan base. Something they've always done since day one - refused to stand still - and that's the reason that 20 years since their first gigs, they're still here and relevant. Long may it continue.
