having earned himself the status as one of madrids hottest techno-exports, regal is back on figure with a special ep comprising both new works from him plus two creative re-interpretations by none other than radio slave. original and remix rub shoulders on the records a-side, both revolving around its enticing vocal hook. while regal employs a skipping beat and skittish percussion to conjure up an air of mystery, radioslave crawls down further the rabbits hole and uncovers the track’s slumbering lunatic qualities. on the flipside regal is back in full control, albeit this time operating in a framework a tad more housy than usual: snappy snares slice up the bubbling acid-line on the fast whirling while its eponymus vocal sample ironically asks ‘did you see it?’. equally aptly-titled slab barges right in, wielding hefty drums and a bassline that oozes groove out of every loop. as part of the digital release, the ep comes with another atmospheric radioslave-rework of from other sounds, leaning on the ambient and heavy on the subs

been impressed by his remix on wall of sound... i loved it. i also heard he won some remix competition. like a grammy, only not a grammy. the tracks he sent were amazing... but his hair, while being orange (no bonus) was not corn-rowed. while i argued vigorously that i had worked too long and hard building up turbo to see it go all >ginger<... von party defended the duke, saying it might show how open-minded we are. when i re-listened to the tracks i decided that it was well worth the risk. so.... what you now hold in your hand is the debut on turbo of duke dumont: the mysterious bad ass from the wrong-side of the tube, the hardboiled london underground pioneer who once had to eat a sampler to survive, the future of dance music, and the past of the future of dance music
