John Digweed and Nick Muir are no strangers to teamwork. The Bedrock collaborators have worked together for two decades, and for their new album Versus, the duo brought in a swarm of fellow musicians for a fully collaborative experience. Here, Digweed and Muir go up against Irish duo Psycatron for a frantic industrial grinder with a hell of a pulsating bass groove.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
