Guiding you through the summer heatwave is a real electronic mastermind. A stone-cold underground hero and regular fixture throughout our ever growing wax collections…introducing Freerotation stalwart and all round tip top talent, TOM ELLIS.
Tom has been knocking out jazz-infused house cuts and off-kilter techy wobblers for the last decade or so with his hardware heavy sound bubbling away beneath the mainstream. An out an out producer at heart, Tom has been cutting his teeth with the Freerotation family over the last few years whilst popping up every so often with releases on some of our most beloved labels, such as Logistics and it’s baby sister Telegraph and more recently his own imprint Modo Di.
This particular episode is all about Ellis’ musical talent through and through. No fucking about, straight up heat from the top. Enjoy!
Solid Steel in association with Serato (7th August) In Hour 2 it’s German producer Tilman who runs the Klamauk record label, which released an album by previous guest Roman Rauch and his own Transmission EP in May. His forthcoming releases will be on Charmin Records and a split EP with Chocky on Ears Have Eyes. Mike Huckaby, Lowtec, Fouk and Moodymann all feature and he had this to say about his mix;
“I recorded this mix in my damn hot studio under the roof and been thinking about the early hours in a house club – when the magic is going to build up and the people slowly prepare for a great night. These records are my old and present all-time favorites: deep and danceable. Just some lovely music for every kind of situation. I am feeling very honoured for getting the chance to record a mix for solid steel.”
