Review: The Slam duo are certified masters of European techno, never afraid to unleash their deadly brand of steely-eyed techno on us through their own Soma imprint. This time the Scottish pair return merely as hosts, giving up their tracks from a tight three-pronged remix EP by some of the industry's best and brightest talents. Gary Beck - a hugely underrated name in the minimal / techno sphere - injects his trademark style on "Catacoustics", whereas Clouds go for a break-led approach on their revamp of "Resolved", and "Cirklon Bells" is remixed by Jeroen Search into a hypnotic, bleeped-out banger for the floor. Nasty.

Review: The latest film from the infamous Irvin Welsh (the Scottish novelist best known for 'Trainspotting') entitled 'Ecstasy', got it's first screening at Minsitry of Sound with some very special guests playing music from the soundtrack, and now the tunes are yours to grab with all proceeds donated to charity. With a film so heavily routed in electronic music and club cultute, the soundtrack needs to deliver.. and it sure does. From the chilled vibes of 'Solo' and 'The Mule' to clubbier moments like 'Broadband' there are plenty of gems here which will no doubt go down a storm when mixed into a set.
