I just thought it was time to put these out. ‘Strike 3’ is just a cool, funky track that was sitting around (and has already been on a Tru-Thoughts compilation) – the same with ‘Cos You’re Beautiful’. People were on at me to release them so I figured, “why not”?! There’s a few more tunes in the pipeline, and it might end up with an album, but for the time being we’re just going to enjoy releasing this music.
Duke Spook is the alter ego of electronic stalwart, Tony Stone. Hailing from Sheffield his musical output sits uncomfortably amongst music from people like Burial, Pinch and the burgeoning dubstep scene. Duke eschews elements of his industrial past into his whirling brew of thumped up electronica, constantly underpinning 2-step drum patterns with Brian Eno like swabs of drawling ambience.
‘Sidewards’ is the debut release for Yorkshire based producer Pitch Twit, the sucker-punch pseudonym of Thomas Sidebottom. Although coming from a classical music background, the synthesized bleeps and wobbles squeezing out of the speakers during ‘Sidewards’ and ‘Pieces Of 4’ here show Pitch Twit’s knack for electronic dance music – twisting sounds and melody to accentuate his percussive thumps.
“I first came into contact with the Sirians as a child. One night in a Devonshire cottage an intense white light streaming through the curtains awaked me. In the glare I could make out a figure standing still and silently before me. The form told me without words that I was not to feel fear, our planet had always been under their control and that one day, soon, there will come a time where only good will be, all the evil and lies will be crushed by an understanding of love. And with this they gave me my name ‘Sparo’ and a MPC2000XL to help people of this planet understand what that meant and help destroy evil.”
