Running Back Mastermix By Tony Humphries /  Various
LP 
Price: $27.79

Product Notes

Double LP version. Includes poster and download code. Running Back will mark it's fifteenth anniversary with the release of it's first label compilation, the Running Back Mastermix. As befitting the celebration of a landmark year in the life of Gerd Janson's widely adored imprint, Janson has invited one of house music's original and greatest proponents of the mastermix, New York City's Tony Humphries, to curate and mix the first edition. The Mastermix is a timely reminder of what has made Running Back endure and remain at the top of many house music fans' favorite label lists for over a decade. Beginning with Todd Terje's blockbuster "Ragysh" and traversing tracks from across the label's history, it includes contributions from long time label regulars, alongside more recent additions and reminders of some of Running Back's best reissues. Label mainstays Tiger & Woods, Matthew Styles, Redshape, and Leon Vynehall all appear, alongside Mr G, Paul Woolford and recent breakthrough artists Shan, Jex, and Roy Camanchero. The choice of Tony Humphries to mix the compilation is a significant one. Having received his break in the early '80s as an understudy for the legendary Shep Pettibone's Kiss FM show, Humphries went on to become one of the defining DJs of house music's formative years with his residency at New Jersey's Club Zanzibar and London's Ministry of Sound. His previous mixes illustrate his continuing ability to bridge dance music's past and present, with prior contributions to Resident Advisor and Fabric's respective series in addition to label compilations for King Street Sounds and West End Records. Tony Humphries on the release: "It's truly an honor to partake in this special anniversary Running Back imprint. Gerd Janson's extraordinary palette of releases are unique - it was a privilege to be involved with this project." Double LP version is unmixed and features a handful of rare and exclusive cuts. Tiger & Woods's "Don't Hesitate" appears on vinyl for the first time, while the Dixon edit of Precious System's anthem "The Voice From Planet Love" will be available on wax again after only appearing on a super limited 12" run the first time around. LP version also features: Todd Terje, Precious System, Leon Vynehall, Mr. G, and Paul Woolford.
