[Premiere] This Soft Machine – Absence Of Rhythm (Rory Phillips Mix)

Nov 30 2016

Mid-week extravaganza here in the form of a smashing premiere.

TSM AKA This Soft Machine returns to Belgian label Eskimo Recordings with his release “Absence Of Rhythm” (drops December 2nd and features Swedish artist Erik Lindestad AKA The Land Below on vocal duties), the single comes backed by a remix from legendary London-based DJ/producer Rory Phillips who churns out a strutting, funked up disco version.

“I lived in London between the ages 18-21. This time changed my taste in music forever. I would do my best to be at Trash Club every Monday night. Here I was introduced to the idea of dance music and rock music being completely compatible. Hearing the Pixies & Talking Heads played along side Dance Music. I remember dancing in the side room to ESG, A Certain Ratio, Delta 5 and The Rapture. Rory Phillips was the guy responsible for the music selection and also my extremely sore legs the next day from dancing all night. I’m super excited to have Rory giving his touch to my own music.”
