are 4 Brighton based djs and producers with a relaxed attitude to copyright law. Since 2004 they are one of the key players in the global edit war. They set up two sister labels; Disco Powerplay and Chocolate Love for edits, whilst Soft Rocks Recordings focuses mainly on original material.
A fairly large portion of my record collection comes from that era, so hard to chose, but I'm going to go for something New York influenced like the instrumental of «The Escapades Of Futura 2000» which is a collision of hip-hop, disco, punk and dub. I just checked and it came out in '83 - a year out, doh!
Music I can get lost in like the Rhythm & Sound remix of «Mango Walk». It's tripped out but also warm, womb-like and endlessly interesting.
Depends. If it's with friends and the party is still going on, something uptempo and fun like «Flight to Paradise» complete with drunken EQ lunging. If it's alone and time to go to sleep something deep and ambient like a Dub Archanoid Trim record.
Too much to chose from here! I guess the obvious thing would be something from the Cafe Del Mar cannon, but I'm going to imagine a more lively beach and chose «Toda Menina Bahiana».
The way people drive where I live, it's best to avoid the headphones. At a push something by my friend, Steve Lee (Project Club), who was knocked off his bike by a Hackney driver - it'd remind me to keep my wits about me.
A slightly cheesy song like this one.
Happy boogie vibes or bumping house... exciting songs about the night ahead. If it's a Saturday, I'm going to go for «Saturday Night Move-Ease».
Seriously? I guess it'd have to be something wigged out and psychedelic like «Caracas Para Locos». Plus it's quite quick - I don't want to hang around and let a farmer have a long and lingering look at my cock and balls.
My neighbour has never complained about any music at any volume, so I've got to think outside the box here. He's a rasta, so I guess if I played «Boots Sex Dread» loudly enough he'd probably be very disturbed indeed.
Quite a cinematic vibe, so «Theme from Bladerunner». That or East London pirate radio.
The nearest I've got is mackreling off the coast of Brighton. So I'm going to imagine deep sea fishing to «Work That Mutha Fucker». Hauling in a massive marlin or something.
Something loopy and repetitive - «Prescription» maybe.
Aching perfect soul disco that ramps up the anguish due to the fact I don't own a copy of the fucking thing!
I make breakfast for my daughter and we both love Justin Vandervolgen's Golf Channel mix CD, so I'd pop that on and we could have a sing-along to «Got to get to my Baby». Which, for her, is simply called «Go-go my Baby».
Both sides edited together and then looped. Still a bit short for me though, innit...
Dunno what it's about but it talks about time and continuity, so it feels right. My dad likes the Beach Boys too.
I suppose I'd be scared so I'd want something that would spur me on. It's also a fairly dumb thing to do, so I'm going with «Trigger» - a slightly idiotic, aggressive new beat / hardcore record.
Or the theme from Scooby Doo... «If it wasn't for those pesky kids!»
Lie-ins are a precious commodity around my way. No music please!
I'm a coward, so I'd play her one of my records that she's probably heard me agonising over for far too long already. Then she'd remember what a boring bastard I am and leave on her own accord.
If I'm listening to music in the mornings, generally it's going to be reggae and something my wife likes too. So «Some Love» on On-U Sound ticks all the right boxes.
