As featured on the killer Actress DJ Kicks mix.
Shed on form. Killer track.
Bubbly house / techno goodness from Rivet, whose fantastic real name is Mika Adam Erik Hallbäck Vuorenpää apparently. The apparently is not part of said name.
René Pawlowitz aka Shed aka STP aka Wax aka WK7 remixing a track from 2562’s Fever album to great effect. Wait for the 3 minute mark. Sweetness.
Quintessential deep house sounds. As featured on Nick Höppner’s Panorama Bar mix.
Deep dark stepper from Leeds based Jack Sparrow’s album Circadian. Assisted on the bells and whistles here by Ruckspin. Circadian rhythms are those that occur once every 24 hours apparently. You learn something new every day.
A slow building piece of classy chugging techno from scene stalwart Speedy J. Somehow made for driving along some northern European industrial landscape in the dead of night. Never really goes anywhere. Slowly builds. Fades away. As it should be.
Proof again Vangelis was way ahead of his time. He gets sampled here by Paul White to completely transform Tranqill’s Payroll. White also removed the lyrics so it’s about as far removed from the original as you can get. See below.

I heard this in a pub the other day and thought it was Cypress Hill’s Black Sunday and was very pleasantly surprised to hear it carry on. I hastened to the bar and quickly as multiple drinks would allow and slurred a demand for an ID. They only knew the album being played but that was enough for me to track it down later on when I confusingly found it scrawled on my hand.
Holy f**king sh*t. Badman styles.
