Glasgow’s Calvin Logue delivers his techno debut on FFRR with his new track ‘Ready’, his latest original production that is inspired by the very scene that he has long been immersed in. Already gaining support from fellow-Scot Hannah Laing, the track is a throwback to the ‘90s sounds that influence Calvin’s records with strong ravey synths, trance vocals and an injection of driving energy.
Calvin Logue: “I wanted to up the tempo in my studio and try something punchier and faster. I found this cool vocal and built the track around it. I added a heavy kickdrum and a psy bassline for the energy and also added the big rave synth line with some added vocal chops to keep the track moving. I uploaded a short preview onto my Instagram story which led to the 'Joyhauser' lads premiering the track at Awakenings, and Hannah Laing supporting it continuously in her sets ever since.”
With previous releases on Sink or Swim, Spinnin’ Deep, Good Company and Stress Records, as well as an official remix for Faithless, Calvin has been laying foundations, apparently becoming a regular choice in the sets of DJs like Adam Beyer, Kolsch and Dense & Pika.
After Pete Tong named Logue as a ‘Future Star’ with an Essential New Tune selection, his debut on the label is the next step as he aims to take his career to the next level.
