The trio collaborate to thrilling results on this fresh batch of deep hypnotic grooves
John Digweed and studio partner Nick Muir have teamed up with the prolific DJ & producer Franky Wah on the amazing new EP Tripchain / Scanalatura, out via Bedrock Records on 8th September.
Combining the considerable strengths of three renowned producer/DJs, the tracks on EP have been road tested with great results. ‘Tripchain’ is a cool driving groove, bolstered by trademark anthemic synths and percussion. By contrast, ‘Scanalatura’ takes a slightly darker approach, layering deep hypnotic grooves and melodies to powerful effect.
John Digweed has also just announced that Bedrock Records, his iconic forward thinking label, will celebrate a major milestone with its first ever day party at XOYO London on 1st October. It marks 25 years since the launch of the original Monthly London parties at Heaven, with a daytime party at the renowned XOYO in London running from 3pm to 10pm. The party also coincides with John Digweed’s 1000th Transitions Radio show, and the event will be recorded for a future broadcast on the show.
