Eyedyllic Music’s sixth release is a family affair, many years in the making. With ‘Too Late To Cry’, the label has once again put together an unlikely group of incredibly talented artists, to form a special release. ‘Too Late To Cry’ was originally produced and released by the multi-talented Jamaica export, David Marston. The original song was one of his earliest commercial outings and first appeared on a compilation via Eyedyllic co-founder Kev Obrien’s former label, Stranjjur, way back in 2012.
Upon meeting in person years later, long after Marston had achieved worldwide success via labels such as Soul Clap and Wolf+Lamb, it was agreed that the song deserved a more proper showcasing, as well as some fresh revisions.
First, we reached out to one of our favorite groups, No Regular Play, who gladly accepted to collaborate with David on a new revision of the song. Using David’s original musical parts as their basis, the fellas crafted a massive new version of ‘Too Late To Cry’, adding an ever-evolving acidic bass line, as well as a hair-raising freestyle trumpet riff, played by Greg Paulus. The collaborative ‘2019 mix’ is one that stands out as an incredibly unique slice of house music.
We then handed the parts from both versions to the talented up-and-coming Brooklyn-based producer, J Gabriel, who returns to the label after his successful You Know/What They Say EP, to remix the remix! J turned in a lovely dub version, utilizing and reigning in the strongest music elements from both Marston and No Regular Play, while adding his signature dubbed-down, funky vibes.
Finally, for the original version of ‘Too Late To Cry’, David Marston went back in the studio and churned out an entirely revised mixdown of the original, making this new ‘original mix’ sound more incredible than ever. The garage and funk vibe on this tune is one that stands the test of time, and Eyedyllic is elated to bring it to the world in it’s most proper form!
