Two of my favourite things combining on this one. Tom Demac and Hugh Masekela. In Tom’s own words, it is a “sun burner gurner” and who am I to argue? It lifts the vocals from Don’t Go Lose It Baby and shunts them alongside one of those foot-stomping basslines. Top marks.
Against the Clock is great little feature run by FACTmagazine. The premise is that they give artists 10 minutes to make a track and film it. What you get is a wicked insight into their creative process – most of the time the artists are able to make a track that has their signature sound. Unpolished, but fresh. Two my faves below – but check out the Youtube playlist for some more festive viewing. There are 193 of them so find an artist you like and go from there.

Tom Demac (another post about him here)
Tom Demac rarely gets it wrong. He has been churning out huge club tracks over the last decade*. His latest single in collaboration with Real Lies, White Flowers, is surprisingly low-grade for a producer of his quality.
Fortunately, it is redeemed by the B-Side, Felix; a brooding, deep number, it is reminiscent of the recently deceased Trevino’s club hit Backtracking – and this can only be a good thing.
*Try Critical Distance, Rain of Colour, It Grows Again, Linda’s Theme, Smoke Stained Ivories & The Shuttle Awaits if he is new to you. Joy awaits
