DJ Contakt – Pool Bar Reminiscence Mix

Here’s a little mix my pal Wayne AKA DJ Contakt did. He used to run a night at the Pool Bar in Shoreditch that I used to go to many years back and would play all sorts of wicked hip hop down there. Here’s a mix of tunes he did as a little retrospective of the night.

Krush – House Arrest

I was reminded of this tune after watching the documentary The Beat Is The Law which is all about Sheffield and its contribution to the independent music history of the UK. Slightly weirdly the DVD is branded as a film about the band Pulp although it covered a far wider (and perhaps more interesting) collection of producers and bands.

One of the key people interviewed is Robert Gordon who produced this track, had a huge part to play in the UK electronic music scene and comes across as a pretty nice chap. I’d highly recommend giving the doc a spin, it’s great (as is this tune).
