Mr. Tophat – Time Lapse – Life and Death

This highly notable track made its first appearance on last year’s Dusk to Dawn and now gets thoroughly revitalised by DJ Tennis. But back to the original which remains tantalisingly exciting via its rolling Acid lines plus pounding drums, which reach out for dramatic conclusions over the course of twelve minutes of trepidation (below). The complimentary remix is defiantly disco, happily in the European sense, sizzling with sleazy tension as the syncopated bassline and dreamy vocals work their explosive magic in truly excellent fashion. It is called the DJ Tennis Disko Bang Club Mix after all…

My Favorite Robot – Barricade (DJ Tennis Remix) – My Favorite Robot Records

An outstanding remix in anyone’s book. DJ Tennis takes a leaf out of his own rules and rips it apart to reveal a production that verges on subtlety, yet hits hard with all the force of nature Barricade requires. Originally appearing in its own right back in 2012 this new reworking sees tough kicks battle against the righteously intense vocal that never lets emotions dip. Keys are then added which cement the darker, gothic elements into one as guitar like motifs and grainy sounds effectively render this a standalone piece of music. Due out on 10” vinyl then followed digitally.

Release: September 9

Me Me Me

Sounding the perfect, resonate note for today’s population Man Power reflects his own taste onto the launch of his brand new label with this debut and self-penned release. Me Me Me, sensibly defies convention with a tale of light, dark and indeed some shade by blending neatly together warm synthesized elements and crisp robotic drums, along with the occasional nod to the classic German electronics of the seventies. DJ Tennis provides a suitably riveting remix care off chiming ambience, weird sampled voices plus probing keyboards. Either way, what more could ask for of a record label in 2016.
