Bill Brewster is set to take charge of the latest instalment of the Late Night Tales mix series.
The humble mix series is a delicate beast, with only a few surviving the onslaught of the web. Late Night Tales - with its curious, after hours theme - has managed to thrive, though, with each instalment seeming to push the selector into new places.
The latest compilation from Late Night Tales, though, looks to be extra special. Bill Brewster is a clubbing legend, with his co-written tome 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life' standing as one of the finest books ever written about the nebulous beast known as club culture.
A highly respected DJ (and celebrity Grimsby Town fan) in his own right, Bill Brewster is set to steer the latest mix from Late Night Tales. Here's a quote from the man himself: "After Dark. It’s New York at 4am with the lights off and the strobes flaring. It’s a Dalston basement with slow chugging basslines propelling a dancefloor. It’s a starlit night on the coast of Croatia with glittery girls and burnished boys grooving to 110bpm anthems. It’s great dance music with the Bosh-O-Meter turned to 0. If you want pounding trance, Lance, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you want a drop, break or explosion every 16 bars, then Swedish House Mafia is that way. This is music for dancers who know to move. It’s slow release carbs, with a startlingly high pleasure count. We’re starting slow and staying that way. Groove is in the art."
Here's a preview clip.
