It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

Today's track comes from one of the,  if not the longest running UK dance music label. The label that has released tunes by Aphex Twin, Brian Eno,  Grizzly Bear and loads of other innovative artists. The Sheffield label has certainly never played it safe. The label was founded by a couple of friends Steve Beckett and Rob Mitchell who sadly died in 2001, who worked for Fon Records in the city.

Aftermath is the work of George Evelyn, who as Nightmares on Wax was responsible for the second single on Warp and also has the privilege of being the artist who has been on the label roster the longest. The track posted is the remix of the single and was re-worked by label mates LFO who were also responsible for one of the seminal records on the label the eponymous LFO.

I do love a bit of Bleep.

I'm off to see the Raveonettes at Oran Mor tonight which will be nice.

Have a good weekend people.

Whay hey, post-Luton Travel Tavern hysteria.

I'm glad you 'found yourself' during the crucial 'jester or misanthrope' training & development sessions.

Have a drink and a dance.

I also had to plant seeds in a pot and reflect upon the essential components needed for plants to grow. Very deep.

No drink tonight, off to Glasgow to see the Raveonettes.

Can we help ourselves then? I fancy one of them posh rums from your cupboard. Much obliged.

You can drink what you like but leave me some of the Havana Club 7 yr old.

Just been over to your bit Davy, a bit dead, then again it is early.
