The Countach * Back In 84 Mix.
A smart new mix this week from Tourist favourite 'The Countach'. If the name isn't immiediately recognised now, then take note as we're sure that it'll be very familiar, very soon!
The Countach is a mysterious record player from Manchester and hes been putting vinyls on decks for the last 5 years all over the UK as well as established institutes like the Warehouse Project and Sankeys on home ground. Based in Manchester, he was one of the original members to set up the Micron with a group of like minded party people. Wanting to pursue his journey into the production ship he left Micron to go live in a cave for a few years to work on some unusual sounds. Influenced by the old Gigolo Records sound and a mixture of italo disco and weird techno, he has created some interesting music for himself, and hopefully other people too. His debut EP is out in Autumn on Matt Walsh's label Clouded Vision with a healthy set of remixes from another Tourist favourite Ivan Smagghe and partner Tim Paris, Clouded Vision and Rob Mello. The EP itself is a mixture of retro electro, future techno and neo rave so expect a barn stormer of a record. He is also part of the Jupiter Rooms night which runs in Manchester and London which is a monthly electronic boogaloo. If you get the chance while seeing him play, pop over and say hi or tell him and interesting story involving animals as he will most definitely enjoy them.
