2018 is proving to be an inspiring year already. Off the back of a guest mix from NiceTraxUK, and a February session crammed to the brim with incredible music, we have a follow up collaboration with Monosonics where we revisit what we started with Radio Eden Pt I, which is also available on both our pages so I recommend you track it down too if you haven't heard it. The mentality here is simply to riff on the revelatory feel of authentic late 90s Gallic house (before it became commodified and pigeonholed) but expand it to sounds which share that same 4am basement shuffle sensibility. That sweet spot in the small hours where you're so absorbed that the worldly preoccupations beyond those walls dissolve and you become a string on a bow, resonating with the music. I took the first 4 and 9-12 with monosonics handling 5-8 and playing us out from 13-16. Finally do go and check Monosonics here, he has a musical lexicon all his own and, as a fellow stalwart from the Bar Vinyl days where we played together in Camden each Saturday night, he's an authentic voice.
