This could well go down as THE remix collection of 2015. “The Mike Maurro Peak Hour Remixes”, on Harmless Records gives us three sparkling CDs containing 21 state-of-the-art remixes. All from the original multi-track tapes by a guy steeped in dance music culture, and a fierce collector of multiple formats of the recordings. Mike Maurro joins an elite East Coast remix squad alongside Tom Moulton, aka The Godfather, John Morales, Danny Krivit, Paul Simpson and Victor Rosado.The release features some of the greatest dance music classics of all-time from such artists as Johnny Hammond, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Candi Staton and Loleletta Holloway. East Coast, U.S.A. 2014 and the remix culture elite squad are alive, well and continuing the spirit and heritage first created by Tom Moulton some 34 years ago, when he created the remix and then the 12 single in a totally organic act of nature. This is a very private club where the currency and terms of membership are measured by access to 2” multi-track tapes and, hence, the opportunity to access the full original recording and remix it. Legendary re-mixer and producer Tom Moulton on Mike Maurro: “Mike has come a long way in a couple of years, and his eagerness to grow and learn is evident in his work.”A lot of the original multi-tracks, are often accidentally dumped, end up in skips or are simply unclaimed from the studios where the tracks were originally recorded. Finding multi-tracks to re-mixers is the equivalent of finding a huge rarity for vinyl crate-diggers. And no one digs multi-tracks better than Mike Maurro. Around 2008 a new name popped up on the scene; some guy from Brooklyn called Mike Maurro. First there were two state-of-the-art Spinners remixes that got people talking and then the opus that is Ashford & Simpson’s, “Tried, Tested and Found True.” Suddenly everybody wanted to know this guy from Brooklyn. These remixes were from the original multi-tracks. What else did he have? Where the hell was he finding these multi-tracks?After meeting the great Tom Moulton in 2011 and having lessons from the Remix Master himself, Mike started getting better and better…..and more daring. He began to discover his own style of remixing and created a signature sound, with unconventional methods of mixing. His extra-long drum-less intro's and a cappella endings have been widely accepted and praised by artists, DJ's and dancers all over the globe. Over the next few years, Mike would remix over 80 tracks without any receiving an official release until now. “The Mike Maurro Peak Hour Remixes,” was a torturous project to clear for release. It meant explaining to the repertoire owners that, Yes; these remixes were from the original multi-tracks and; "No, we don’t know where Mike got them!” A delicate balancing act, especially when some of the multi-tracks are no longer in the repertoire owners own vaults! “The Mike Maurro Peak Hour Remixes,” introduces a fresh new sensibility to the art of the classic remix. It is a truly glorious collection and a must have.
