THE U&A RECORDINGS MIX REMIX COMP. IS HERE! MIKE HULME - SWEET INSPIRATION
It's been almost a year since we heard from legendary techno scientist Mike Hulme on U&A. He'd been busy holed up in his MADLAB somewhere north of Watford with a Chernobyl-sized phalanx of modular circuitry until we broke him out. Team U&A dusted him down from his boffinry and took him to Scotland where the impish Wicker-men plied him full of class A's and left him to dance around stone circles until the chimes of autumn snapped him out of his stupour.
On returning, he downed his specs, and came through with two MASSIVE slices of ELECTRO-TECHNO in 'Set The Controls' & ' Sweet Inspiration'. The former is a perfectly formed grind-fest with super-subs and pin-prick-precise techno-wobblings, whilst on 'Sweet Inspiration' you can hear more than a hint of the Chemicals at their most psychedelic (I'm guessing the Class A's had begun to take hold ...).
So, for all the budding producers out there, now is the chance for you to GET INVOLVED with U&A and make yourselves heard. Mike has made a MASSIVE 44Mb REMIX PACK available of the parts of 'Sweet Inspiration' for FREE DOWNLOAD & your mission is to create something special to compliment a remix pack that already contains reworks from label boss ELITE FORCE and up & coming production kings HEDFLUX and THE LOOPS OF FURY. Entries must be received no later than 22nd November and will be short-listed down to the best five, announced on 26th November. The winning entry will be announced on 29th November and this will appear on the official U&A release of the remixes in December 2010.
