We’re obsessed with this new 70s inspired guestmix from Rework… it makes us wanna hit the road for the rest of summer!
So here’s the backstory to how it came about…
Whilst he is primarily recognised for his bond with Detroit and its varying strands of House and Techno, Seth Troxler is an artist whose taste and collection spreads much further afield. (You’ll know what this means with a swift listen to his amazing Rhythm Control mixtape that he dropped at the end of last year)
Through his own imprint Soft Touch, Seth explores music from way beyond the motor city’s borders as he seeks to outlet left-of-centre cuts that touch on “interstellar guitar, calypso disco and seductive techno tracks”.
Basicly brilliant mind bending stuff which leads us here at the second instalment on Seth’s label with the Visionquest and Playhouse affiliated trio Rework who draw from their unique meld of synths and vocals and turn in their ‘Lovecall’ EP that comes out on wax next month…
To give you a flavour of what’s in store we got hold of this standout mix that you’ll have a hard time not going out and take acid to in the desert.

Formed in the year 2000 Rework released their first EP “Anyway I Know You” on PLAYHOUSE RECORDS. In 2005, the group grew to include Daniel Varga, Michael Kuebler and Sascha Hedgehog who went on to make their first album “Fall Right Now” and the club hits “You’re So Just Just” and “Love Love Love Yeah”, their second long player “Pleasure Is Pretty” came in 2007.
Remix projects have already included many artists: ALTER EGO, CHLOE, MAGDA, LOSOUL, JACKMATE, TRENTEMØLLER, and others. You can also find their tracks poppping up on lots of compilations too: RICHIE HAWTIN’s “Closer To The Edit”, various “Famous When Dead” compilations and FABRIC DJ mixes.
Fast forward to last year and REWORK returned with a two-sided affair for Paris-based MEANT RECORDS and their first label appearance on ITEMS & THINGS and on VISIONQUEST.
Their sound was now darker than before, with an intensive undercurrent. Quite different and fresh but with a very rock’n’roll attitude that brought their personal little dreams and horrors to the fore.
