Soma label heads Slam curate a specially designed package of tracks to finalise their ‘Archive Edits' project that sees them delve deep into Techno's past to bring some of the genre's best tracks into the modern age. The ‘Archive Edits' project started as a way for Slam to showcase and share the many different edits that had made their way into their DJ sets over the last few years.
The pairing of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle have both raided their extensive collections, picking out tracks that have defined countless sets over their career. Tracks from luminaries such as Nitzer Ebb, Thomas P Heckmann (as Silent Breed), Damon Wild and Terrence Fixmer have been reedited alongside some of Slam's own unreleased material, showcasing the duo's current sound; one that naturally evolves, matures and demonstrates why the duo have been at the forefront of the global scene since its inception.
“We resurrect nine cuts from our archive collective collections for your listening and spinning pleasure. Some are original material, some are live re-edits, some are well-known, others are not! They all have one thing in common, they all attempt to unashamedly destroy dancefloors, and thus featured heavily, (usually toward the end of our DJ sets) in the last year or so. Now we share them with you!"- Slam
Slam open the album with an absolute monster track in the form of their rework of the legendary Nitzer Ebb's ‘Join In The Chant'. The anthemic EBM/post-punk infused original is given a thrashing overhaul from the duo marking one of the standout tracks of this collection. A special live rework of fan favourite ‘Scorpion' drops before the previously unreleased ‘Memoriam' delivers on a more emotive tip.
