Jamie XX Essential Mix – BBC Radio 1

Future Classic: Instra:mental “Vicodin” (Skudge Remix)

Another hot plate from the Naked Lunch imprint. After great releases from Scuba, Breakage, Kowton this 12″ sees three of the dopest names around when it comes to futuristic and cutting edge dancefloor music. I think it’s simpler to call it that then to go into the whole acid revival …

Future Classic: Pierre’s Pfantasy Club “Mystery Girl” (Seiji’s Bassrub)

The Numbers imprint is already well known for pulling some proper tricks out of their bag, and this is a BIG one. Originally released in 1987, DJ Pierre’s 2nd single ‘Mystery Girl’ should surely count in the Chi-town hall-of-fame, squarely defining the sound with horny bass vamps, futurist synth strokes …

Future Classic: Breton “RDI” (Girl Unit Remix)

I’ve been playing this track a lot lately and since I get asked everything what it is, I thought I’d share it with you all. When it comes to underground music I am still a huge believer in the power and the trust in quality labels. Hemlock is certainly one …
