Slam‘s Orde Meikle and Stuart McMillan are techno trailblazers. As DJs, producers and proprietors of Soma Recordings, they’ve created groundbreaking, highly influential tracks like “Positive Education,” curated gems including an early version of Daft Punk’s “Da Funk” and have fostered the careers of too many producers to mention. And that’s only a snapshot of their credentials.
On Soma’s Slam Present: Transmissions: Glasgow, the Scottish duo shine the spotlight on like-minded techno artists living in their beloved home city. Glaswegians Clouds, Harvey McKay, Edit Select and Hans Bouffmyhre are but a few of those who contributed tracks to the compendium.
In advance of the release of Transmissions: Glasgow, we’re thrilled to world premiere Gary Beck‘s floor rocker “Tomorrow You’ll Know.” Those who follow techno will know Beck’s star has been on the rise for some time — his brilliant Bring A Friend album is incidentally Soma’s 100th release — thanks to his raw, edgy and evolving sound which epitomizes the essence of the label’s musical wanderlust.
Says Beck of the cut, “This is a track I made a couple of years ago, it’s a very versatile track and can be played at pretty much any point of a set. I still play it to this day and it never seems to sound old. It’s a pleasure to release it on the Transmissions: Glasgow compilation.” Hit the play button below and discover Beck’s timeless effort.
The 15-track Slam present Transmissions: Glasgow compilation is released June 29, 2015.
