mp3. Helium Robots - Delve (Wrong Island Remix)
If you're craving something a little more forgiving, you'll be happy to know that veteran Manchester producer James Holroyd these days works under the guise of Begin, creating tracks in hues of electronica, nu-jazz, balearic disco and no doubt something else. Certainly one of begin's most synth-heavy productions, the third track on his Lay EP Obsolete, dropped onto vinyl about five months ago and has been rolling around my recently played ever since - and seeing as just the other day James Murphy used B2 of the same EP to begin his Boiler Room set, the time is nigh for some kind of non-ironical mention of a great track. The more I watch, the more I realise that DJ aside, it's impossible to dance upfront in a Boiler Room set and not look like a total dick or an acne ridden bullying victim at your first high school dance. Of late Holroyd's stuff has really tended in a deliciously balearic direction, so keep an eye on his Souncloud for pending releases etc if that stuff tickles your fancy.
