Slam finally have a stab at their own label mix series. Sci-Fi Hi-Fi. Volume 5 drops early July.
Slam, aka Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle, run Scottish techno institution Soma Records, but until now they've shied away from the label's Sci-Fi Hi-Fi. mixes, doling out the mixing duties instead to label regulars Ewan Pearson, Alex Smoke and Funk D'Void as well as names less familiar to the label such as Luciano.
For Volume 5, the pair opted to do a proper club mix including older tracks from the last twelve months as well as more current selections from the likes of Matthias Tanzmann, D'Julz and Cle. The mix also includes cuts from new Soma finds Decimal and Jandroide plus fresh Slam material from their new label Paragraph.
"This mix is a tribute to our Return To Mono night at the Sub Club in Glasgow," says Meikle. "Some of the biggest records from the night feature. For us it was important that all the tracks were carefully selected, so we haven’t shied away from some older tracks that are big in character and in our DJ sets."
