Dave Angel – Glide [Rekids, REKIDS215]
Techno legend Dave Angel drops ‘Glide’ on Radio Slave’s Rekids this January.
Dave Angel was a regular on Brixton-based pirate radio station Phase One in the late ‘80s and an integral part of the UK Techno scene ever since, remixing the likes of Underworld, Orbital, and Model 500, and founding Rotation Records in the ‘90s. Turning his sights to Radio Slave’s essential Rekids for his latest release, the iconic DJ/producer prepares a heavy duty two-tracker for the label, dropping in early 2023.
Title cut ‘Glide’ leads the release with flanged hi-hats, evolving synths, and rocking low-end combining to form a club-shaking hit. On the flip, ‘Peekaboo’ combines dub-techno-inspired chords with wonky samples and pumping drums for a warehouse-filling B-side.
“It’s just me, that’s my sound. As long as it’s groovy, and funky, and solid, that’s all I can say!” – Dave Angel
