It's hard to believe that Orde Meikle and Stuart McMillan aka Slam and Dave Clarke - not the techno DJ- set up Soma a quarter of a century ago. Over that period of time, the Scottish label has been home to early Daft Punk records and has also nurtured a long list of indigenous artists. One of the first local producers on Soma back in the early 90s was Funk D'Void; his break through track, the hard-stomping Chicago techno of "Jack Me Off' gets the remix treatment here, with Christian Wunsch going down a linear route and Alex Smoke dropping an acidic, minimal version. This release also sees Gary Beck focus on panel-beating drums to rework "Bad Coffee" and newcomer Charles Fenckler delivering a detuned warehouse techno version of the same track, replete with a hypnotic vocal sample. Here's to 25 more years.
