Richard ‘Sticky’ Forbes built his reputation as one of the countries leading club music producers in the height of the UK Garage scene. His distinctive sound not only made his music unavoidable in the clubs during this era, but also launched the careers of a number of the UK’s leading talents including the Mercury Award winning Ms. Dynamite.
Sticky has had an endless numbers of club and chart hits featuring artists including Kele Le Roc, Stush, Tubby T & Twista, he has also remixed the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, The Saturdays, Aaliyah & Sugababes, consistently finding himself scaling the heights of the club charts.
Sticky’s new remix is of Primrose Hill‘s debut single Candy Rain. Primrose Hill are a teenage girlband, who have very recently been signed by the same music moguls that created the Spice Girls.
The track is classic Sticky, with a 2012 vibe. The melodic hooks are still there, but have now morphed into synth style sounds. Luckily for us Garage Heads, Sticky has not changed his production values towards basslines, this one is ruffer than sandpaper, yet so simple and subtley made.
A great track from Sticky and Primrose Hill, both careers looking to blossom from this remix.
