Keith Tenniswood (aka Radioactive Man) has always had a bit of an anti-authoritarian streak in him - from his ravey days in Two Lone Swordsmen to the creation of his new label, Asking For Trouble. The title of this new long player, Luxury Sky Garden, (his first since 2012) was inspired by the never-to-materialise public park at the top of London's Walkie Talkie building - originally promised by developers but quickly turned into the grounds of a luxury restaurant instead. The music is inspired by the live sets he's recently been playing and features 11 cuts of his signature mischievous electro and breaks.
Some six months on from its May release, Radioactive Man's brilliant Luxury Sky Garden - one of our favourite electro albums of the year to date - gets the remix treatment. On the A-side you'll find two contrasting versions of "Sonic Portal": a thrillingly melodious and futuristic take from Dexorcist rich in bubbly synthesizer lines and deep space electronics, and a darker, more heavyweight electro club rub from Ben Pest. On the flip, the Pain Struck Stanley Dumb remix of "Blast Furnace" is a thrillingly fast techno revision propelled forwards by creepy, rave-era riffs and restless metallic percussion hits. It's a hectic and full-throttle affair, so it's nice to see that downtempo veteran Biggabush's version of "Deep Space Habitat" is an altogether warmer, slower and more considered affair.
