Record of the Week
Posthuman - The Fixer
Hot on the heals of the Chevron release from a couple of weeks ago comes this new 12” from Balkan Vinyl boss, Posthuman. Two great tunes here, but the B side, “The Fixer“ is the initial standout tune for me. I’m sure both will be getting plenty of air time on the radio show though.
Classic of the Week
Green Velvet - La La Land
When this was released in 2001, there was confusion over whether it was a a pro or anti ecstasy tune, but Green Velvet himself has confirmed that it is an anti drug tune and the only one I can think of off the top of my head in the House and dance music scene.
Forgemasters - Skies Over Sheffield
Originally produced in 1990, this one sat unreleased for three decades before finally being pressed to vinyl on the Seven Hills label in 2020. It certainly has the sound of the time, while still feeling fresh for a 2020s dance floor.
As always, you can hear the radio show on Wednesdays at 5pm GMT/BST on Underground Kollektiv, Thursdays 5pm GMT/BST on Data Transmission, Saturdays at 11pm GMT/BST on Radio Roadhouse and new episodes hit the podcast every Friday morning.
