Patience is a virtue. I asked Subtrakt boss Rikki Newton if he had a mix I could play on the radio when Restless Beat was begining. He said he was planing a mix based around a brand new batch of records arriving from overseas. Let’s just say I’m glad we waited…

Expect to hear a well crafted mix of choice cuts of house that gently transition into more of a techno feel. You can clearly hear the Chicago House and Detroit Techno influences, though they feel fresh and new rather than nostalgic.

Rikki and Adam Swain have been running their Subtrakt parties at Barsoma for six years and will play a b2b set at Barsoma’s official closing party this Saturday 13 April 1am – 3am.
