Pete Tong and Skream join forces on ‘All Gone Pete Tong & Skream Miami 2013’, which includes tracks and remixes from Hot Natured, Maya Jane Coles, Dusky, Jamie Jones, Midland, Maceo Plex and many more, with 11 of the tracks exclusive to the compilation. Tong – along with studio partner Paul Rogers - provides a new original production in ‘Dance With The Devil’ and a brand new reworking of Hot Natured’s ‘Assimilation’, both of which are exclusives.
Also from the duo is their edit of the Pachanga Boys’ ‘Time’, a version that was created especially for this compilation.
“The series is constantly evolving; it’s now slower, funkier and has more vocals than ever before,” says Tong of his latest mix. “I love the art of the mix CD and have a huge respect for the industry, so every time I commit to one I’m trying to make a timeless statement; something that accurately reflects the current musical landscape and will stand the test of time.”
As one third of Magnetic Man, Croydon-born producer, Skream, has been expanding his aural field to include house and garage-tinged beats and melodies. "I've come so far from where I was before but then I've never really been in one place,” says Skream of the shift. “House, techno, disco... this is the music that I'm pushing and loving now. Things needed to evolve and I couldn't be happier."
“Skream has a love of dark, twisted house music which he’s been cultivating through his radio show,” says Tong of his Radio 1 cohort. “We wanted to make a fresh statement with this compilation.”
"This mix is only the start really; it's where I'm heading and I'm really excited about it,” says Skream. “There's a lot of variety and plenty of surprises. The b-lines are still there but here is a Skream mix exploring different tempos and styles, and delivering plenty of feeling. I'm really pleased with it; I just hope everyone else loves it as much as I do.”
It’s out March 18 on Defected Records.
