Making one tgbiggest waves this year was the start of Freelance Science at Alaska in September. The worthy premise behind it was to give Slam legends Stuart & Orde the chance to play extended sets, allowing them to 'create a musical journey’, something we don't see enough of. Using a couple of samplers and a drum machine, this is Stuart 8: Orde in all their glory, and it is a guaranteed lock out every month.
Aaron Carl: 'Crucified (Maas remix)‘ (Sirlrus)
Great reworking from Soma's Ewan Pearson. Fantastic old Detroit style soul from Mad Mike's Underground Resistance stable. Wonderful interpretation if you want.
: ‘ ‘ " i. i Speakerfrealrer: 'Products Of Our Environment EP’ (Catalyst)
Artist known as Halo in top funk fusion workout. A favourite sound of Slam just now.
ll-Foundation: 'llomegrown EP' (Camouﬂage)
The that sound Slam are really into at the moment, this is really the grassroots soqu of Detroit techno. Wicked.
