Matt Tolfrey Feat. Marshall Jefferson – The Truth

artworks-000058518992-z1ficn-t500x500

Late last year, Matt Tolfrey released his debut album on his much respected Leftroom imprint. The LP, “Word Of Mouth”, featured an array of guest vocalists including Kevin Knapp, James Teej and the legendary Marshall Jefferson; the man behind some of the most recognisable house records of all time including Move Your Body and Mushrooms…

Well it would seem that the track on which Marshall Jefferson features, “The Truth”, is due a remix package out next month with Jon Charnis and Geeeman getting passed the remix baton. First up, is LA based producer Jon Charnis who’s recent outing on Innervisions was a particular favourite of mine, you can peep that here. Anyway, Jon takes the original track into deep, dark territories where ambient melodies build into a mighty crescendo, perfect for a late night work out.

Next up is Geeeman (Gerd under a more twisted alias) who provides two remixes on the package, each one packing a weighty Klitschko punch. Geeeman, who has a knack for turning in tracks and remixes that make me pull faces in awestruck disgust, comes up trumps with his Deep Vox Voyage remix. A rough and rugged house number, reminiscent of the most brutal warehouse sessions that can be… The other, his Rough Mix, adds an extra pinch of grit to the proceedings has to be heard on a hench system to be truly appreciated. There’s no doubt that the 4Lux head honcho is on a roll here, and I for one would like to see Geeeman make more outings into the land of EPs as his Bang’t track was a big favourite from last year.

Mount Kimbie – You Took Your Time (Kyle Hall Remix)

There’s no doubt that Mount Kimbie’s “Cold Spring Fault Less Youth” elevated the London duo to the vanguard of forward forward thinking electronica with the mighty Warp Records acting as their creative umbrella. The album was, in my opinion, a triumph and saw Dom and Kai enlist the services of King Krule on guest vocals for the tracks “You Took Your Time” and “Meter, Paler, Tone”. Well it would seem that “CSFLY” will benefit from a remix EP out next October with none other than DJ Koze, Kyle Hall, Lee Gamble, Oneman and Jeremiah Jae (from JJ Doom fame) all lending their deft touch at remixing select tracks from the LP.

Earlier today, Warp unveiled Kyle Hall’s offering to the highly anticipated remix EP. Kyle Hall turns You Took Your Time into a detroit infused crunchy house number where a rugged house rhythm rides aloft emotive melodies. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the exclusive vinyl release HERE.

If by now, you are feeling a little excited by the prospect of seeing these two heavyweights play a street party in East London, then you may be dumbfounded to read that come sunset, FOUND are carrying on the fun and shenanigans at a Warehouse Party until the early hours of Sunday morning. For the after party, it’s evident they have cut no corners in curating a line up of epic, forward thinking proportions… First off, they have Dyed Soundorom, 1/3 of the too hot to trot Appolonia collective and a fantastic DJ with the ability to whip a crowd into a certified frenzy with his groove laden house. Having heard the man play on a couple of occasions, I can assure you he is dope. Also on the bill for the night time work out is South London Ordnance who has been making some serious waves of late with killer releases on the likes of Madtech, 2nd Drop and most recently Hotflush… Rounding off the line up is the Mekanism who’s EP on Needwant was heard on dancefloors throughout the Summer and who also holds a residency at Paris’ most revered institution the Social Club. With support coming from Sion, Cropper, Schumen and Rollo. For more information and tickets, click HERE.

To win 2x free entry to both the day and night party, simply drop a comment in the box below telling us what the best thing you have ever FOUND is…Winner’s will be contacted by Friday midday at the latest, good luck! x
