Released 2nd June 2017
To ring in the 10th release on Repertoire we're revisiting two of the first tunes to appear on the label - Sophine / Emptiness Is Form. On remix duties are Repertoire's own Law & Wheeler, and fresh from his successful outing on Rupture LDN: Outer Heaven.
Law & Wheeler re-work Sophine into an even lusher ode to the 1995 era Good Looking sound. Atmospheric pads and female vocals take you up, whilst crushing amen edits and heavy bass give the track a hard edge.
Taking on the "Ghost Dog" sampling "Emptiness Is Form", Outer Heaven's signature break work is on full display here. Pounding amens and snarling bass take centre stage alongside machine-gun percussion.
Release 10 represents a landmark for the Repertoire label, so we’ve gone all out with a full artwork sleeve which depicts two important places in Watton-at-Stone (the birthplace of Moving Shadow), where Law and Wheeler spent their formative years.
The front cover shot shows the village station, which still, after 25 years, proudly displays the 2 Bad Mice graffiti over the railway bridge.
The reverse shows a bench at the end of the village high-street where Law & Wheeler would sit and watch the world go by, listening to the likes of Nookie, Hyper-On- Experience, Blame, Foul Play and Deep Blue blasting out of a Sony Walkman.
