0.00 / 2.00.00
i've done something special for this mix, two hours of King Unique tracks & remixes picked out from fourteen years & ninety releases. i've had a lot of fun pulling out old boxes of vinyl, DAT tapes & CD backups, (not to mention encountering some dodgy old press shots along the way) & even found a couple of unreleased gems from ten years back - original dubs of 'Sugarhigh' & Underworld's 'Two Months Off' anybody?
i've tried to include a little of everything, from early house days on Defected to dark tribal on Junior Boys Own & the melodic techno of Bedrock - plus the remixes for pretty much every major & indie label under the sun. it would've taken four or five hours just to include everyone's favourites in a 'definitive' mix so this is simply how KU looked to me in one week of looking back in 2013. if i missed out your essential KU i'll maybe do this again one day; & of course there's still all those bootlegs lying around doing nothing...
it goes without saying that this mix is as much about my original partner in KU Matthew Roberts as it is about me. we sat in the studio together 5 days a week 8 or 9 hours a day between 1999 & 2006 making this stuff - then scurried home to see our families briefly before heading off to the airport or motorway for the weekend.
thanks matthew - thanks families x
