12" Vinyl UK21.11.18
radio slaves reissue label, r-time, returns with an in demand re-release of his timeless remixes of peace division’s legendary blacklight sleaze (ft pleasant gehman). originally released on nrk in 2006, ‘blacklight sleaze landed at a time when peace division (justin drake & clive henry) was lauded as one of most bankable acts in house music having notched up a truly remarkable catalogue that helped define the genre from the late 90s onwards. later that year, the pleasant gehman spoken vocal led cut was treated to a series of remixes from radio slave, another act who had firmly developed a similarly revered status in the scene. these futuristic remixes, now fully re-mastered and sounding better than ever, take blacklight sleaze to another level with thundering kicks, a pitch-perfect arrangement and tightrope balance between foreboding house and bone-shaking techno. a huge anthem at berghain, these remixes have been a favourite weapon in the record bags of many techno djs, not to mention a regular fixture in nina kraviz and rodhads sets now seems the perfect time for more blacklight sleaze
