Loving the whole album.
My secret favourite is Unaufmerksamkeitsblindheit (Achtung Gorilla!).
Stockholm based dj and producer HNNY has created a four-to-the-floor disco / house monster edit of Steve Reich’s hypnotic Nagoya Marimba last summer. The track is only available on a very limited, sold out and pricey vinyl edition. I have been wanting to play it at parties but there is just no high quality digital version available. The soundcloud stream has piled up more than 160K listens over the year. Seems like an underground hit to me.
And now, one year after the original vinyl release there is a re-issue coming out including an extended remake on the b-side. Don’t sleep on it and pre-order now.
I rarely buy vinyl these days but once in a while there comes a record that is so good I have to get it twice. This one is buy Australian gay gayness duo stereogamous feat. Shaun J Wright. The melancholic deep house song is carried by Shaun’s smooth yet determined vocals. Face Love Anew in XTC.
You might remember Shaun J Wright from the last Hercules & Love Affair album and his solo debut on Andy Butler’s MR INTL label called Forevermore. I had included a remix of Forevermore on one of my minimixes.
Favourite versions of Face Love Anew: the orginal, Jason Kendig and Horse Meat Disco Remix. Listen below.
