Under the shade of gentrification and growing corporate globalisation, the celebration of independent music retailing and culture which is Record Store Day is undeniably becoming more and more important. A prime example of this is happening over the hills in Sheffield; where a row of characterful buildings housing, among other things, the well established Rare & Racy music and book shop is being demolished in favour of shiny retail units, restaurants and apartments. In the build up to April 18th, there’s been a steady trickle of information regarding this years exclusive material and one-off releases from a wealth of artists across the musical spectrum, and Ninja Tune have firmly got in on the act with the heavyweight four-track twelve inch featuring four big reworkings of tracks from the ‘Vapor City’ series by Machinedrum. Side one see’s Exit Records boss dBridge deliver some tough tech-step breaks to ‘Rise N Fall’ alongside a ruff, rolling junglist remix of ‘Gunshotta’ from Om Unit. The flip has Moresounds taking ‘Don’t 1 2 Lose U’ into frenetic interstellar slow/fast territory, while Tri Angle experimentalist Fis gives ‘Eyes Don’t Lie’ an otherwordly, shapeshifting rub.
