Silicone Soul celebrate 20 Years of their ‘Right On, Right On’ Classic

Silicone Soul celebrate 20 years of their game-changing breakthrough hit with a brand new remastered version and two of the most timeless remixes.

‘Right On, Right On’ and on and on and on… The duo’s iconic Curtis Mayfield sampling single came in many shapes and sizes around the turn of the century. Beginning as ‘Right On 4 Tha Darkness’ in 1999, it then became ‘Right On, Right On’ in 2000 with that legendary hypnotic bongo loop that brought the soaring strings and warm jacking groove together so exceptionally well that another version popped up a year later; with added vocals from Louise Clare Marshall, ‘Right On!’ smashed the UK mainstream, hitting number 15 in the official charts… And led to the Glasgow duo famously declining an offer to go on Top Of The Pops. Two decades later and they still don’t regret that decision.

“We’ve had a lot of remix and licensing requests recently for ‘Right On, Right On’ with even a dodgy progressive house cover version appearing back in January. Soma’s release schedule was sadly full, so we thought, ‘fuck it’ let’s do a re-release on our own Darkroom Dubs label, and as it’s been 20 years since the first release, we thought it would be perfect timing for an anniversary edition too. Conor Dalton, from Glowcast Mastering in Berlin, was kind enough to remaster the original direct from DAT and to complete the package, we’ve also included a new dynamite remix from Fango, with Matthias Tanzmann revisiting his much-loved remix for a 2020 version.”

‘Right On, Right On’ was an instant classic the moment it dropped back in 2000 and has been a mainstay in the record boxes of the most discerning of DJs since.
