London-based trance artist Nicholson returns with a refreshing new take on Bush Babies’ 1996 hit ‘Delicious’. Taking the track in a more hard-hitting direction, the quirky acid-house influenced undertones of the original are replaced in favor of a true trance sound that placed Carl Nicholson on dance music’s radar 25 years ago. Out now on Tidy Two, ‘Delicious (Nicholson Remix)’ is available across all streaming platforms.
The Bush Babies track, a true ode to 90’s techno, was a classic in its own time. 24 years later, Nicholson’s rework of ‘Delicious’ serves as a modern-day testament to the impressive progression of hard trance music as a genre. His gritty take is relentlessly unforgiving in nature, transforming the timeless tune into a quintessential tour de force from beginning to end. Serrated synths, rolling basslines, and intermittent trance-laden bass drops interspersed throughout consistently evoke raw emotion in the listener for the entirety of its approximately seven-minute-long duration. Hints of the original can be heard, providing a refreshed auditory experience that does not detract from but rather harkens back to its source material in all the right ways.
