Review: Sometime UR collaborator Esteban Adame gets one of the tracks from last year's Day Labor album remixed. In its original form, "Rise & Shine" is a beautiful, string-soaked ambient piece of mood music, while the 'Beat' mix adds a rolling rhythm to these musical elements. Frequencia Decon ventures further down this path with a heavier, dense rhythm track, while Mark Flash's take is a glorious Detroit techno workout, the strings to the fore and the melodies unfolding over a jerky rhythm. Finally it's the turn of UR themselves and they don't disappoint, turning Adame's ambience into a stripped back, dark electro number.
Review: The boss is back! The legendary UK pioneer and Bedrock head honcho gives us a live set from Canada's second city, complete with crowd noise. Digweed's knack for sniffing out the most cutting edge progressive and tech house grooves is second to none and you can bet that this set is chock block full of narrative, innovative grooves: one journey you'll never forget! Featuring contributions from Germany's Recondite ("Tame"/"Baro"), Glasgow's Sei A ("You Can Bring"), Berlin's Smash TV ("Cascadia"/"God Key") and Los Angeles' Eagles & Butterflies amongst a host of other big names. Also comes as six continuous mixes for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
