Until recently Steve Mason would have definitely been more familiar to most under his previous guise as frontman of the Beta Band. He’s grown older, wiser and earlier this year he released his excellent solo album, Boys Outside, a mixture of wistful melancholy, warmth and tenderness. If you haven’t already make sure and pick it up.
One of the standout tracks from the album ‘Am I Just A Man’ has just received the remix treatment by Swedish duo, Studio. It’s completely turned on its head, a remarkable transition from eerily haunting to uplifting, like something straight from the Caribbean Islands.
Nice work if you can get it.
