MR G – Retrospective Sampler (Rekids)
Ahead of the forthcoming ‘Retrospective’ album from techno legend Mr G, comes the 12” sampler featuring ‘Song For My Cantor’ previously released on Careless Recordings. ‘Lights (G’s Out Dub)’ previously on Phoenix G/Defected and‘Moments’ previously released on Mr.C’s End Recordings.
‘Retrospective’ in its entirety is an auditory map of the evolution of Mr G’s bass centric, analogue sound, which together with his unforgettable live show has made him an enduring institution that has shaped dance music as we know it.
Mr G made early waves in the dance world in the early nineties under the name KCC and with Cisco Ferreira as the groundbreaking techno outfit The Advent. He was a regular playing at infamous 90s Confusion/ Melange parties in London alongside the likes of Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May, where they would play on a reggae soundsystem for £80 every Sunday night shaping the early throes of dance music and nightlife culture.
Mr. G’s second album ‘State Of Flux’ (released July 2012) received widespread critical acclaim and saw his live show become globally in demand seeing him tour USA, Japan and Europe continually.
Rekids is now Mr G’s musical home after a colourful past releasing several dozen records with the likes of Skint / Loaded, Defected, Duty Free, Moods and Grooves USA and his own Phoenix G.
