I love the smell of nepotism in the morning. (Pt II)
PEOPLE GET REAL is the collective name for the DJ/production duo of Simon Lister and Peter Wilson. For almost a decade now they have been pushing their brand of dance-floor terrorism to parties up here in their native Newcastle, across the UK and beyond. As well as being a couple of our favourite DJ's, Peter and Simon have been friends of ours a for quite a while now so we've no qwarms about blatantly repping their productions old and new and seeing as they've got gone and got Tourist faves Ivan Smagghe and Tim Paris, alongside a whole host of other luminaries of the electronic scene, to remix their latest offering 'The Unicorn E.P.' has just been released on the lads' very own 'Join Our Club' imprint, we thought it only right to give them a shout.
If you didn't already know, PGR have been the residents at Wax:On since it's inception in 2004, they were involved in compiling and mixing one of the two CDs commercially released to celebrate the 5th Birthday. The mix being a retrospective of tracks from the previous 5 years on the dancefloor at Wax:On, and a snapshot of the music and style that has made them a firm favorite with the crowd and visiting guest DJs. This has seen them DJ alongside some of the world's biggest hitters; Richie Hawtin, Erol Alkan, Sven Vath, Boys Noize, Tiga, Loco Dice, Ivan Smagghe, Matthew Dear, Simian Mobile Disco, Craig Richards and Andrew Weatherall to name just a few.
If you want to catch them playing out anytime soon, the PGR boys will be playing at 'Wire' in Leeds with the afore mentioned Mr Smagghe on Sept 23 and a week later on the 30th at Manchesters 'The Countach Club' alongside Daniel Avery.
You can check out all the tracks and remixes as well as the DJ feedback from their new 'Unicorn E.P.' on PGR's Soundcloud by clicking here, we'd also recommend you take a minute out to have a listen through the other tracks and edits on here!
Anyhow, if you wanna buy any of the tracks you can purchase from Beatport by clicking this handy link here. We'd encourage any financial help you can afford the lads, as Simon has got a wedding to pay for in a couple of weeks and it must cost him a fortune to keep that beard looking so well groomed. X
Till next time.
Big love. Tourist. X
