NRK representing at Glastonbury Festival with Radio Slave, Peace Division & more..

Get yer wellies out, it’s that time of year again! The Summer Solstice has just passed, and that means it’s Glastonbury Festival time. Team NRK take the short trip down to deepest Somerset to spend 3 days in the sun/rain/mud (delete as appropriate), although the weather forecast is looking very promising for the weekend.

For any of you going to Glastonbury this year, NRK have a little something special going off in the Dance Village this year, so do slide on up with some rotten scrumpy and smacky pills and say hello!

NRK have helped co-ordinate the DJ line-up for The Igloo, which is like a mini IMAX with 360 degree visuals and 4K system, we've done a couple of parties in there now and it's ace! The Sunday line-up looks like this;

El Harvo : 6.00 - 7.00pm
Ed Karney : 7.00 - 8.00pm

New Christian Prommer remix of Hot Lizard's "The Theme"

German electronic artist, Christian Prommer, has remixed the classic Hot Lizard production, “The Theme”. Prommer is well known for his output on the labels Compost and Sonar Kollectiv, his highly percussive Drumlesson project as well as his involvement in the groups Fauna Flash, Truby Trio and Voom:Voom. On “The Theme” however, Prommer goes solo for a smooth and pulsating remix; utilising elements of the original mix and the classic 1995 Carl Craig remix with some dramatic strings and shimmering hi-hats.

NRK re-released the legendary Charles Webster/ Paul Wain/Gary Marsden production in February of this year, complete with brand new remixes for 2008 by Version (Charles Webster and Atjazz) and a new solo mix from Webster. Available digitally for the first time since its original release in 1995, the package is completed by remixes from Mark Broom and Love From San Francisco.

Prommer’s Remix and Beatless Remix will be released on 12” vinyl, along with the Love From San Francisco Remix, as well as on digital download on Beatport and other digital sites from September.

This Is Only A Test, Please Do Not Be Alarmed

The classic Foremost Poets track, "Moonraker", re-surfaces for 2008 as a digital download and physical release with new remixes.

Featuring the classic vocal from Johnny Dangerous, "Moonraker" has been a staple in DJ boxes since its original 1998 release, and the King Unique mixes in 2002 took this record to the next level. Now out on NRK Music as a digital download for the first time, we’ve commissioned some brand new remixes from Spencer Parker, Magik Johnson and Sleazy G.

Spencer Parker, a producer/DJ fast becoming one of the UK’s hottest properties, weighs in with a great remix, simple yet effective bendy beats with plenty of bounce, a mix that’s gonna rock dancefloors all over this Summer. Check out Spencer’s other tracks and mixes for labels like Rekids, Tsuba, Buzzin Fly and SAW Recordings.

Also returning to the NRK fold after a short absence, Dick “Magik” Johnson provides a deeper house slant on “Moonraker”, evoking shades of classic Tribal Records tracks and emotive Tenaglia productions. A Magik J Dub ploughs deeper and darker…..

Finally, newcomer Sleazy G get’s his “Moonraker” remix officially released, after causing a commotion on the electro-house scene for many months, and also getting nominated Bedroom Bedlam #1 by Radio 1’s Pete Tong on his Fastrack TV show.

The new remixes of “Moonraker” come out on September 8th, whilst the Original Foremost Poets mixes and the 2002 King Unique mixes are available digitally now on Beatport.
