505 // Tom2Trax – Heatwave Horizon (Lunar Mix)

Sprechen brings to life another sharp VA! Premiered here, Tom2Trax's contribution.

“Edgy Future Discotheque” is the name of the brand-new and fresh-from-the-oven compilation released on the vital “Madchester”-based imprint Sprechen, but it could be also the name of the genre the label favours to publish. Its flawless curation process guarantees a catalogue full of, yes, edgy, out-of-the-box Disco-soaked gems, and the Volume 5 of its VA series does not go in another direction. On board, a true dream team of collaborators: Andy Buchan (SXDNS012), Flash Atkins, Ed Mahon (SXDNS068), Tom2Trax, Jimmy Turnbull, Mangetout, and Daco with a solid remix for Mr. Atkins’s contribution.

The track we were solicited to review comes from the criminal mastermind of Tom2Trax, an experienced British DJ who has been strolling through the muddy and marshy terrain of the production realm since his first appearance on Sprechen’s “Edgy Future Discotheque Vol. 3” in February last year.

His “Heatwave Horizon” seems to have been named after our doomed status quo: The near future will be bleak, brace yourselves! But before we all die due to the current and forthcoming climate emergency events, let’s melt on a packed and sweaty dance floor, shall we? Tom2Trax’s cut is devoted to triggering momentary happiness not only at hot pool parties but also on dark indoor grounds: Frolic percussive elements, suitable vocal hooks, and a correct amount of acid set the mood of one of the best tracks of the compilation.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
