At Home With LWE: 9th December - Slam Takeover

Wed 9th Dec

Taking over today’s At Home With is legendary techno duo, Slam.

From groundbreaking releases like ‘Positive Education’, ‘Eterna’ and ‘Lifetimes’ to co-running one of the most celebrated labels of all time, Soma, few have had a lasting impact on the scene as big as the Glaswegian pair. Continuing to innovate and push boundaries after 4 decades in the game, Slam’s latest barrage of dancefloor weapons comes by way of a monthly Bandcamp-only release series titled ‘Strange Dayz’.

Slam’s selection of recent and all time favourites include Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Rhythm Is Rhythm, Kenny Larkin, Douglas Stuart and more.

A Recent Mix:

Slam - Slam Radio Mix

This is the most recent Slam mix to be released on our weekly Slam Radio show - showcasing the best in underground electronica , which has been running for over 8 years. Our Slam mixes always give us a chance to air new signings from our label Soma and play music from our friends, piers and new discoveries.

An All Time Favourite:

Jeff Mills - Live at Liquid Room (1995)

We where so lucky to have played at the Liquid Room in Tokyo before it closed. A strange venue that was reached by a singular tiny lift, but what an atmosphere. Jeff has always been one of our favourite performers and this particular mix just encapsulates his mastery of the medium - even back in 1995.

A Recent Release:

Slam - Strange Dayz (Volume Four)

This is from our new series all recorded from “Lockdown” - It’s given us a chance to follow a more musical and emotive theme with the releases during these incredibly strange days.

An All Time Favourite:

V.A Compilation ‎– Virtualsex

Such an iconic collection of tracks - There are some of our favourite ever Detroit Techno tunes featured on this album from Buzz Records in Belgium. The 3D artwork was so striking as well - you even got a pair of cardboard 3D spectacles with the album.

A Good Read:

Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart

The most recent winner of the prestigious Booker Prize - a fantastic debut novel about a son and his drug addicted Mother growing up in the poverty stricken East End of 1980’s Glasgow. Harrowing and touching in equal measure.

Something To Watch:

Slam Radio 400

A special mix and video recorded live over 4 hours at the mighty “Galvanizers" at SWG3 in Glasgow, the home of our Maximum Pressure parties, to commemorate the milestone of the 400th Slam Radio show.
