Aout 6 - Stolen Stylophone

Not much info on this one I'm afraid, but what I can tell you is that it's a nice deep chugger that neatly straddles any deep house/deep techno divide. It doesn't do huge amounts, but with its sub-aqua synth washes and rumbling bassy undercurrents, it doesn't really need to. Sofa-surfing deepness of the highest order.

As for the name, well obviously it means August 6 but whether that's a reference to the bombing of Hiroshima (August 6, 1945), the independence of Jamaica (Aug 6, 1962) or Bolivia (Aug 6, 1825) or just someone's birthday, who knows? See here for other things that happened on August 6 if you're, like, really bored.

About the label: Stolen Stylophone is on Stripped Digital, part of the Stripped family – have a look at the label profile at They're based in darkest Essex; the label's run by Southend DJ Norman H whose MySpace is here, and who used to be Jesus Jones' tour DJ, apparently. Now there's something to tell your grandkids*.

* Or rather, for Norman H to tell his. I doubt yours will be that interested. They probably won't even know who Jesus Jones were.
