Legendary UK outfit Future Sound Of London kicks off with a trippy head jam to soothe the mind of electronic dreamers. Berlin's Monolake aka Robert Henke follows with a beat-driven and heavy industrial piece of clattering sounds and whirring rhythm mechanics. David Morley completes this sixth EP of the 10 years series in style: "Traytor" brims with depth and floaty atmospherics pushed further by low range beat parts. Real endorphin material.
Kevin Foakes (Openmind, DJ Food, Ninja Tune) created all the graphic work. Mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, pressed on 180 grams vinyl and a separate digital version will be available from the usual digital shops. Stay tuned!

UK techno veteran Kirk Degiorgio takes on the Future/Past guise once more for an exquisite 4 tracker on the Belgian De:tuned label. Kirk struck gold during a recent dig through some of his old DAT tapes and unearthed 2 previously unreleased gems: a finished version of his widely acclaimed 90s classic 'Hyperspace' described by Kirk as the real Hyperspace and 'Cosmos', a rough uptempo percussive workout, proper crunch Future/Past sound.
The DAT tapes also revealed a couple of tracks that were only ever released on CD: 'TRY 2004 Funk Mix 2' (from the historic 1993 'Applied Rhythmic Technology' compilation) and 'Locator' (from the sublime 'Objets D'art 92-95' compilation). The CDs have become rare and wanted items, and so Kirk and De:tuned decided to finally press these tracks on wax.
All tracks were mastered straight off the original DAT tapes by Matt Colton to guarantee that extra crisp sound quality. This release will be available on 180g vinyl. A separate digital release will also be available from the usual digital shops. Stay tuned!

After last year's massive 'Brainbox' album, De:tuned presents the 7th and final installment `Unboxed Brain' which contains 3 excellent re-interpretations by Future/Past (aka Kirk Degiorgio), Mark Broom and The Black Dog of selected tracks off the album and an exclusive new track by The Future Sound Of London. Yet again, mastered by Matt Colton (Alchemy mastering) and related artwork by designer Kevin Foakes from Openmind (aka Strictly Kev, DJ Food from Ninja Tune). Both Kirk Degiorgio and Mark Broom rework B12's 'Worlds End'. Kirk Degiorgio, who makes a rare appearance as Future/Past, increases the energy levels and turns the original into a dance floor bomb. Broom's version heals back to a more electro and breakbeat vibe by adding some deep ballsy and stretched out beats. On the flipside, Scanner's 'Eros' gets the Black Dog treatment. The illustrious UK outfit strips down the original into an eerie futuristic soundscape. Lastly, The Future Sound Of London brings us an intense piece of sound design: sit back and let the music take control, stay tuned!
