Bedrock’s Nick Muir remixes Russian Linesman’s ‘The Road Back’ this month on Loki Recordings. Featuring the spoken word poetry of poet, playwright, and actor Ben Norris, ‘The Road Back’ originally appeared on the DJ/producer's ‘Monomyth’ series in 2020. A six-part project, it delved into a concept based on Joseph Campbell’s book ‘A Hero with a Thousand Faces’, with each track named after a part of the protagonist’s journey.
Nick adapts the Nottingham-based artist’s ‘The Road Back’ into a danceable affair. Synth lines and chord stabs pulsate over steady drum patterns and rumbling low end before the track moves into a breakdown.
Best known as one half of UK duo Bedrock alongside John Digweed, Nick’s career has spanned decades, seeing him emerge from the nascent rave scene of the early-90s and Manchester’s Haçienda into the mainstream as an active remixer to this day.
‘The Road Back (Nick Muir Remix)’ lands on Loki Recordings tomorrow.
