Review: The Philadelphia based DJ/ producer follows up Space Traitor Vol 1, his last release on London's Civil Music, with this, "Lost In Space" featuring Charlie XCX. The original is a bass driven, synth-drench sci-fi utopia with autotuned vocal and dubstep inspired sound. Accompanying this is a radio mix and VIP mix, which takes things up a notch or two, before Innerparty System provide a fun, pumping remix with funky electro-house vibes; Om Unit then goes deeper and more psychedelic, whilst Darling Farah harnesses the zeitgeist, blending genres seamlessly with this super slick interpretation. Kuhn then finishes things off with a glitchy, beat-laden fidgety juke-esque version.
Review: The Late Night Tales crew are certified specialists when it comes to compilations and the label have quite the catalogue behind them, featuring mixes by the likes of Bonobo, Belle & Sebastian and even Fatboy Slim. This time the compiling credits are anonymous, meaning that the label have taken it up to themselves to compile this After Dark Nocturne release. The tracks are unmixed, as is usually the case, so you can pick and mix as many as you like, or simply go for the whole lot! There's plenty of gold in here and the compilation spans quite a diverse set of music from the shady house of Tornado Wallace to the Italian pop of Adriano Celentano on "L'unica Chance". There's also some more minimal numbers by the likes of Alex Metric, gnarly electro beats by Hotel Motel and plenty more. Dive in, it's a guaranteed party bomb.
