This is Brighton's Matt Edwards' debut mix CD. Following such DJ luminaries as The Glimmers, Headman, Ivan Smagghe, Chromeo, DJ Naughty, Optimo and Rub N Tug, Radio Slave really gets into the groove with Creature of the Night. Switching from house to techno, disco to funk and electro to jack, Radio Slave stitches together the likes of Hell, The Kills' unreleased "No Wow," X-press-2, Green Velvet, Joe Smooth, Señor Coconut and even The Osmonds "III" -- a lost disco 12" version -- into one long party, knees-up. As Matt himself explains, "I created this mix as a snapshot of the last hour of one of my sets, where you can dig deeper and pull out some real party tracks, obscure rock dance and some proper tripped-out disco. It's great when you've got cool kids in Berlin jumping up and down to Corey Hart or festival goers singing along to Dennis Parker's 'Like An Eagle'." Radio Slave is currently one of the most in-demand producers around. No matter what sounds you profess to be your music of choice, chances are, at some point over the last five years, you will have got your rocks off to Matt Edwards. As Radio Slave he fashions club-based, dancefloor slayers. Under that alias he's updated classic Chi-town and jackin' sounds beloved of house aficionados and layered them with fractured funk, belligerent, oddball beats and mechanical soul. From old school party gems to new style club destroyers and of course, a few of his own twists on the original, Matt Edwards takes us on a twisted and wigged-out journey well into the early hours.
