'We are the dreamers'…take a listen to a track I produced for the recent Klaxons album titled ‘The Dreamers’. The recording process was pretty interesting as the entire backing track (apart from the vocals) was recorded either twice as fast or twice as slow, and then vari sped back to its original tempo, so it felt lucid as if you were coming out of a dream. Let me know what you think, or even better, tell me about your most recent dream.

In advance of their forthcoming album ‘Futurology’, Manic Street Preachers announce a special 12” vinyl press of the single ‘Europa Geht Durch Mich’ remixed by Erol Alkan. The forthcoming release features two different signature reworks on a limited edition 12”, alongside a digital exclusive with Beatport.
In original form “Europa Geht Durch Mich” is classic Manics and the subtle motorik feel is enhanced by guest vocals from German actress Nina Hoss, and it’s her contribution that Alkan leads with on the ‘Mesmerise Eins’ rework. A singular line is twisted around a techno production that unfolds with dancefloor precision. The accompanying ‘Mesmerise Zwei’ rework takes a darker, dubbier and more psychedelic approach with Alkan’s production skills shining through in the mind bending way Hoss’s vocal is manipulated.
