Release Date: 30th April 2012
Headman returns once again on his own Relish Recordings label with a superb new EP featuring new track ‘Turning’ and a near perfect package of remixes from Emperor Machine, Richard Fearless / Death in Vegas, Scott Fraser & Murphy Jax.
The latest single from Headman sees Insinna offer up the wonderful ‘Turning’, an 80’s tinged machine-funk vocal outing that comes on like a modern love child of Human League, New Order and Grace Jones. Robi’s tight yet rich production shines through on both the dub version and the original which features vocalist Tara, who previously appeared on the awesome ’It Rough’.
The originals of ‘Turning’ are complimented by two remixes, the first comes from Emperor Machine AKA Andy Meecham, one half of the hugely influential Chicken Lips. Meecham’s mix is the kind of epic, extended masterpiece that has you shaking for the full nine minutes to it’s conclusion.
The second mix comes from Scott Fraser, here he delivers a pulsing, Moroder-esque reworking that is a heads down, disco delight.
Added to the package we have two remixes of ‘Be Loved’, Headman’s last single. The first comes from Richard Fearless, here he turns in a truly storming mix that segues from a distorted leftfield intro into an acid house classic! The second mix and the final piece in the puzzle is supplied by Murphy Jax who takes ‘Be Loved’ and works it into a warm, percussive house workout.
The release received amazing support from Andrew Weatherall, Jack / Friendly Fires, Rex the Dog, Maya Jane Coles, Roman Fluegel, Trevor Jackson, Erol Alkan, Eric Duncan / Rub’n’Tug / Still Going, Alex Metric, Ewan Pearson, Rory Phillips, Severino + Jim Stanton (Horse Meet Disco), JD Twitch / Optimo, Jori Hulkkonen, Nickolas Chacona, Claudio Coccoluto, Mock & Toof, In Flagranti, Villa, Dan Avery, Chris Duckenfield, Richard Norris and many more…
