I can remember literally bolting across a busy warehouse party in the early 90's (I think it was actually DIY in Gloucester?) after hearing a record come on which immediately stood out to me, hadn't heard it before.... A clear 303 single note bassline/hook with sublime strings and undeniable flavours of Detroit and Chicago in the drums and vibe. I needed to know what it was!!That record was "Northern Lights" by Caucasian Boy (AKA Crispin J Glover and David Jenkins, AKA DJ Shakra), and I have honestly been playing it ever since. It was released initially on Crispin's own, Matrix Records, it was then signed to Strictly Rhythm for the world. The amazing squelching acid that is the track's defining characteristic saw it become a huge global club hit and a true classic.I hadn't seen Crispin for a while, so it was lovely to get back in contact in the midst of Lockdown and just plain amazing to hear the brand new Caucasian Boy EP that he and his original production partner DJ Shakra, had been working on. Were we interested? Was it good? Well, yes and YES! Is the obvious answer.

So, fast forward 28 years, and here we are releasing their new acid house monster, the Remote Control EP. Remote Control immediately puts me back in the warehouse or one of those dark, sweaty basement parties which have shaped my musical education over the decades, you know, when things are just starting to get really involved. Beginning with a relentless 90's feel with a nod to early 90's Belgian Techno, Remote Control steers you through a perfect six and a half minutes of heads down warehouse acid groove, all culminating in a kick-ass gorgeous breakdown. And then there's Dystopia. A deep, dark 909 driven cut of excellence. You can hear in every bar that the purveyors of this track have a deep experience of and are driven to write for the dance floor. Once again, making perfect use of 303, 909 and 808 (amongst others) Dystopia pulls no punches and shamelessly leads you right into the middle of that sweaty dancefloor, and it's perfectly executed delivery, thankfully, keeps you right there.This two tracker release will shake even the mightiest dance floors and was just crying out to be put on wax, so keep a watch for the limited run of vinyl too!!
