1. Remain feat Matt Walsh – Insame (Robi Insinna / Headman Rework)
Insame culls together a number of influences from disco to techno to funk and condenses them into six minutes of grinding, slo-mo stomp. Remain released his E.P. in 2012. Headman reworks “Insame” into a low slung, acidic melodic chugger.
2. Fab Mayday – Do What You Like (Dub)
Italian Fab Mayday – founder of Italo Italians Records. Do What You Like Dub fuses disco to funk to late night techno.
3. Scott Fraser – Paraphrase Mine (Robi Insinna / Headman Rework)
Scott released the 3 track E.P. entitled Light Sleeper in 2012, slow, machine funk driven techno. Robi Insinnna aka Headman reworked the orginal keeping the spirit of the track, adding melody and groove .
4. Hannulelauri – Europa (Dub)
Hannulelauri are finnish – Hannu and Lauri. They released 2 E.P.’s on Relish. Super Monkey and Aura Delta. Europa was release in 2011 on RELISH 3. The finn’s offer a New Beat sensibility, body music slowed and tweaked to resonate on the dance-floor.
5. International – River Seine (Dub)
This was a one-off side project from Robi Insinna and Italian Stefano, a Subbuteo enthusiast, an outlet for their washed out Boy’s Own baggy 90’s tendencies. River Seine – is an Ibiza meets Manchester piano driven number. 909 snares, simple delays and tightly enveloped chords.
6. DC Salas – Never Enough (Abstraxion Peruvian Shaman Remix)
On the 24 E.P. Abstraxion remixes Never Enough. The Remix could be described as hypnotic and psychedelic dance music. 24-year old DC Salas is a DJ/Producer from Brussels.
7. Chmmr – The Updated And Expanded Tenth Anniversary Edition (Brassica Remix)
Chmmr is the dance music making moniker of norwegian Even Brenden. The five-tracker TUAETAE was released on Relish in 2011. The Remix is non- linear, deep and has a Breakbeat retro Vibe, which is a trademark for Brassica’s Music.
8. Daniel Avery – Input // Machine
In 2012 the 5 Track AIRSTRIKE EP came out Relish. A slice of modern, original electro w/ heavy distorted 909 and flickering percussion. Joining forces with resonant synths and a fittingly austere pitch- shifted vocal. Retro moody Machine funk!
9. E.S.U. Track (Hannulelauri Remix)
Andrea Esu is a dj and promoter from Rome Italy. Finnish pair Hannulelauri added stripped kicks and chiselled stabs to the version. They leave a state of tension in the air.
10. Chmmr feat. Den Haan – 16 Tonns
The track is a popping NRG/Italo from Norwegian Chmmr’s collaboration with Glaswegians Den Haan.
11. State of Art – Venice (Headman Rework Slow Dub)
Formed in June 1981 State of Art are one of the few new wave bands to emerge from Italy. Formed by singer Fred Ventura, bass player Stefano Tirone and guitarist Stefano Mazzola in Milan. This is an unreleased Headman rework.
