carry on efdemin
ever since seeing the news over at RA that efdemin has a mix CD on the way, i've been waiting for it to drop (17th november to be exact). efdemin is a producer and DJ the ssgs have been very keen on for quite some time. we are proud that we were perhaps slightly ahead of the curve being the only people to chart him in the 'best of 2006' awards for RA. pete and myself both regarded the sublime 'bergwein' as the best track of 2006, while cam charted it 2nd only to another dial record, pantha du prince's 'walden'. anyway, his star has most certainly been in the ascent since then, winning the 'best artist' category and being runner up in 'best album' for the 2007 RA awards. while he has been quieter on the production front in 2008, his recent remix of 'fearless fun' on petite is one of the best tracks of the year in my books. but it is not just his productions that we love efdemin for, the guy can also seriously play. he's a very intuitive DJ, who has a really good feel for the music. that can be seen in the impressive tracklisting for his new mix CD. this is all a very big preamble to the good bit: tom from the excellent curle recordings has very kindly provided us with a new 30 minute mix by efdemin (320 kbps no less) to get us all in the mood for the new mix CD coming out on the label. the mix is just as good as you'd hope/expect.
