Premiere: Timothy Clerkin – Slave Too
Smoke ebbed and flowed through the warehouse, engulfing all dancers in its path. Through the haze you could make out countless sweaty writhing bodies, eyes closed or heads down; each and every one lost in their own world. Their hips oscillating and swaying with every kick and stab that punctured the room. Their bodies were slave to the rhythms.
Close family Timothy Clerkin pays tribute the foundations of rave music with a contemporary vision with his new EP Psalm. Set for release on his own Insult To Injury imprint, that he runs alongside us at R$N HQ, it features three originals torn from the late night good book. 'Slave Too' – which also gets a remix on the flip from Simian Mobile Disco's Jas Shaw – takes things up a gear following opener 'Psalm', bringing with it heavy breaks and detuned stabs that transport us back to the early 90s.
