Originally released as part of Eskimo Recordings acclaimed compilation ‘The Red Collection’, Dutch duo SHMLSS’s ‘Train Ride to the Middle East’ has proven to be a perennial favourite with openminded DJs attracted to its heady psychedelic brew of twisted disco and Middle Eastern sounds. Now to kickstart 2018 Eskimo are releasing the track on vinyl for the first time, complete with a brand new remix from Marvin & Guy.
Whether running their own XXX label, curating the disco playlist at 22Tracks Amsterdam or spinning wild sets featuring everything from disco cuts and global beats to ambient sounds and industrial house grooves, SHMLSS’s Bart and Michiel have made a name for themselves with an eclectic approach to music that shines through in tracks such as 'Train Ride to the Middle East'.
With releases to their name on labels like Hivern Discs, Correspondent and Permanent Vacation Italian DJs and producers Marvin & Guy are proponents of an equally openminded style. Stripping the track down to its glistening muscles, Marvin & Guy have rebuilt it around a bass line that throbs and pulsates in an almost unseemly manner, just the thing for sweaty sessions in strobe lit basements.
