The world was a slightly different place in 2006, the last time Tirk put out a label comp (TIRK01). Obama had just become a Senator; merchant bankers still had their snouts in each others' troughs, not the taxpayers pockets, Deadmau5 didn't exist, three times as many record shops did. Minimal still sounded vaguely edgy and interesting, disco was the preserve of thirty year old men with beards, Annie Mac was about to discover Dubstep…
Now we’re got Radio One jocks devoting half their shows to Aeroplane mixes, and "edits" in danger of becoming a genre itself, and just as record sales head ever closer to what must finally be the bottom of the sales curve, the spirit of disco finally rises again. Yep, there's going to be no white horses or hanging out with Truman Capote this time round, it’s all about being slightly too old and not caring in Dalston basements for us, being fabulous in ill advised cardigans from Primark . And the music... there's always the music.
Whilst the mix CD has tracks from Todd Terje, Hercules, Richard Sen, Chaz Jankel, Prins Thomas, Architeq and more, this sampler EP has four exclusive remixes primed and ready for action on discerning dancefloors.
Fresh from his warmly received Valiant Truth EP on Tirk, Hot Coins adds a sexy lilting bassline and unhurried arrangement to the Joubert Singers classic SOTW.
Noo Yorkers Dirty Haze unleash a classy instrumental funk weapon, whilst from the other side of the States, 40 Thieves add some jack and bump to Morten Sorensen's underground anthem 'Start Something. We bring things to a close with a cool, simple and infectious electronic houser from new kids on the (former) eastern bloc, Russian chaps Acos Coolkas.
