A little unreleased gem from the archives again my friends – here’s my 2006 interpretation of Kraftwerk’s ‘The Model’, remixed and re (erm) ‘werk’d for the BackTrax night’s we ran nine years ago. BackTrax was formed in 2003, when myself, Brother Matt, and friend ‘Dougie B’ hit London’s Ministry of Sound with a retrospective house night, which ran there 2 or 3 times, twice in Estonia and later in the north of England for a few nights too. The gigs occasionally saw the 3 BackTrax DJ’s joined by long-time DJ friends, Stuart Mountain and ‘Chuzza’ as guests too.
Stuart and I went on to launch our own stab at the music industry in 2007 with BackTrax studio productions, which saw us make a minor dent on the ever changing industry, but it was at a time when the digital explosion via distribution, mash-ups and freely available technology saw any decent wheat being buried underneath the chaff that began to proliferate. Today though for just a one month window and for your listening pleasure and delectation, I’m making the very first BackTrax remix available for a free download to your ipod’s etc.. so go get it below, and enjoy.
