To celebrate the release of the new remix EP from Newcastle based band 'Retriever' we've blagged a new mix from the boys at their record label 'Splash One'.
Similarly based in Newcastle 'Splash One' was set up recently when the lads had noticed that something was once again going on in and around the clubs in town, something that’s been missing for a few years but now seemed to be resurfacing, which is kids in bands coming out of the woodwork. There’s some fantastic new Tyneside bands coming dancing at the clubs at the moment, and after chatting to people they had seen drinking or dancing week after week and realising that not only were they in bands but that they were in ‘good’ bands, it just seemed like the right time to start using the Splash One club nights, 'Jukebox' and 'Dragnet' as platforms to show what people what they wanted to do.
The latest fruits born of endeavour from the Splash One stable is a remix EP from Retriever released in collaboration with Berlin's longstanding mutant disco and electronic funk label Relish Recordings. The 4 track's take in the original as well as remixes of the title track 'Murder' by Relish head honcho Robbi 'Headman' Isinna as well as Retrievers label mates Anti Tank and Naked Under Napalm and is well worth a listen.
Anyhow, the chaps thought they would share one of their recent mixtapes with us, and this was what they came up with! The origins of 'Savages Lost Mix' is around a year or so old but manages to sounds box-fresh due to the recent renewed in interest in artists like Nitzer Ebb and the like and makes a great companion piece to the excellent People Get Real 'Alternative New Year Hoedown' mix we posted recently. The mix cuts across dancefloor shaking post-punk, cold wave, EBM and bands more recent artists drawing from that vibe such as current media darlings Factory Floor and the consistently brilliant Battant.
