The mighty Optimo will release an old goldie from our Illumination catalogue on their new “Drum Attack” EP of “secret DJ-weapons”. The track in question is “The way out is the way”, which is taken from the B-Side of a 10inch single initially released through Music Man Records back in 1998. Quite a different affair than the more deep and housey material we released under the Illumination moniker, the tune had Optimo’s JD Twitch in for a surprise when he received the master and realized the original vinyl was intended to be played on 33rpm, and not 45rpm as he’d been doing all this time. The release date is set to late October 2014, and you can preview the EP in the player above. There’s also some more info on the release over at Juno Plus.
Here’s a new mix I’ve just done with some of my faves for the summer, including a bit of new and unreleased material. Enjoy!
Here’s the second track in the new series “Norwegische Künstler Verpisst Euch”. Available exclusively through Bandcamp.
I’ll be heading up to Hebden Bridge and the Trades club this coming Friday the 11th of July, where we’ll be doing a Frost live set plus a screening of the film “Ghost Radio Hunter”. After the gig and film screening I’ll be joining Paper Recordings’ own Flash Atkins and Jimmy Gezellig for a DJ session.
I’ll be playing a live set at London’s 93 Feet East on July 4th. The event is part of Noise of Art’s Trans Europe Express series, bringing European (and Scandinavian) sounds to the UK.
Our film “Monster” will have its international premiere at London’s East End Film Festival this coming Saturday the 21st of June. It is part of the “Alienation” programme of shorts screening at the Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel at 4.15PM. The film will also be available for online screening through Vimeo on demand from Monday 23rd of June, but you can pre-order it for streaming and download already at this link.
The new remix 12″ including mixes from Optimo’s JD Twitch and Full Pupp’s Blackbelt Andersen is now available on vinyl through Clone Distribution. The digital version will only be available from July 7th, but as you read this it probably means you’re genuinely interested in my stuff and can head over to my Bandcamp page and get high quality files as an earlybird special offer.
