Ronnie Rocket – Music & Beyond (July 2019)

John Grant’s latest album was one of my favourites last year. Now, it’s been giving a new life with an E.P. of remixes. I open with the last track, a dark reworking by Swayzak.

Lost Under Heaven is an underrated Mute Records artist. Here remixed by labelmate Chris Liebling from Frankfurt.

Track 3 is Manchester legends A Certain Ratio featuring Manchester legend Barry Adamson in a new version by Chris Massey.

Hayden Thorpe’s new album is on my album of the year list this year. Here is a new reconstruction by Lusine from Seattle.

Floating Points is another one man band favourite from Manchester. This is an extended version of the brand new single.

Siavash Amani is an Iranian instrumentalist based in Teheran. This is the newest recording from the soundscape artist.

Track 7 is the sound of a toothbrush and made by Dorian Concept based in Vienna, Austria. Free jazz meets electronic music.

Chris Clark is a Warp Recording artist. This is the latest single from the brand new long player.

Peggy Gou (photo) mixes Berlin and Seoul in her new MV but I have included her own track from the recent DJ Kicks! compilation.

The closing track is a beautiful re-recording of a classic Brian Eno song released by Deutsche Grammophon.

Thanks for listening.
