(18/07) Claremont 56's 10th anniversary celebrations continue via this tasty 12". It contains two alternate, previously unheard versions of remixes that originally appeared on the label's celebratory box set earlier in the year. Chicago deep house legend Larry Heard is at the controls on the A-side, delivering a deep, dubby, spacey and musically rich "Fingers Deep Club Mix" of Jack Cutter and David Harks' Balearic shuffler "Serpent Strut". While naturally superb, it's the flipside Emperor Machine dub of Paqua's "Ruby Running Faker" that's really got us in a spin. Clocking in at well over ten-minutes and blessed with one of the strongest synth basslines you're ever likely to hear, the Stafford producer brilliantly plays around with delay-laden piano and vocal snippets throughout.
