Legendary LAURENT GARNIER airs my track, "(We Have To Live) In The Future", from the fothcoming "8 Track Cartridge" EP on Hypercolour, on the latest episode of his IT IS WHAT IT IS radio show. This makes me very happy.
"We're going to finish the show on a high note this week, with a brand new track from a new EP - it's not released yet, it will be I think in December on Hypercolour - the 'maxi' by West Norwood Cassette Library. Here's a guy with a supercharged disco house sound between Todd Terry, UK Garage, Italo-Disco and breakbeat. But all at the same time. You're going to hear: it's super-festive, it's super-happy, and it's going to make you finish the show on a crazy high ... I'll leave you with the track called 'We Have To Live In the Future' - that's quite deep, right?"
