We’ve been eyeing up Gazelle Twin in the office of late, so I’m excited to see my old favourite Tom Demac collaborating on two tracks forthcoming on Hypercolour 9 Feb; Guts “by far the scariest piece of music I’ve ever written!” and an edit of Belly of the Beast. He doesn’t disappoint either, with two rather menacing little stormers that kinda make me want to throw things around.
It pleases me greatly to include a new Tom Demac remix as TotD this week. He’s added his signature deeper-than-deep baseline and slidey-slidey sounds to the lovely vocals of 22-year-old Charlotte OC‘s Hangover from the Colour My Heart EP on Stranger Records. Thanks to Mixmag for this beaut. Look out for the Moodymann remix too.
Our track for the day today could really be any of the tracks on this EP, and that’s not surprising when you see who is involved – Tom Demac on Pets Recordings. Well done Greg and Voitek (Catz n’ Dogz) for getting this little beauty on your label.
Tom’s been a busy boy this year and has chosen his labels well, with the Critical Distance EP storming out on Hypercolour (who we watched deservedly win Best Label at DJ Mag’s Best of British this week), another EP on their Glass Table imprint as well as a recent release on My Favourite Robot. As his website tells us, he must have finally made the big time, because there’s a piece on him in The Sun!
Track of the day is a sneaky little builder, a naughty tease which you think is a straight up disco number until it drops this utterly filthy bassline which I actually can’t get enough of. I wasn’t intending to turn on the computer today (I love Christmas) but I just had to write something about this bad boy. So I bring you: Tom Demac, Tanners. Turn. It. UP.
Great Suffolk Street warehouse has done us proud over the years, and this weekend its caverns are being taken over by the mighty Hypercolour for their showcase night, featuring Groove Armada, Maxxi Soundsystem, Todd Edwards, Youandewan, Alex Jones (whose Higher Level EP just came out on the label) and Tom Demac (whose Obstructing The Light EP just came out on their picture-disc label Glass Table).
You’ll recognise a Hypercolour party by the hundreds of people with smiles on their faces; the Miami showcase was a storming affair, and we’re looking forward to being back on their dancefloor. We’ve got two VIP tickets to win, just email [email protected] and tell us: who are the two co-owners of the Hypercolour label?
