DESCRIPTION

LIMITED EDITION WHITE VINYL - ONLY 400 COPIES WORLDWIDE

Head-turning singles "Tuff Enough" and "Take Em Up" from Marcus "Shit Robot" Lambkin's fantastic debut, From the Cradle to the Rave, get reinvented by two of the most talented DJ/producers working in electronic music. Only 400 copies of this limited special release, to be produced on white vinyl, will be pressed.

On the A-side is Germany’s Michael Mayer’s epically inventive take on “Tuff Enuff." Less muscular than Lambkin's original, the remix softens things up by placing supple keys under the hardened exterior. The climax is an otherworldly listening experience that literally builds to take off.

On the flip, John Talabot’s remix of "Take Em Up" starts like a laidback house party that builds just enough energy when it's relocated under disco lights. The haunting opening -- a swirling, ghostly blend of elliptical vocals and handclaps -- leads to a sonic journey that is as smooth as it is wholly entrancing.

This fantastic coupling of tracks is being produced in very short supply, so snap them up quickly!
