Scottish legends and all round good guys, Slam have just annouced their huge and mighty collab with Hector Oaks, 999999999, Keith Tucker (AKA Optic Nerve), Amelie Lens, Rebekah, AnD & Perc, for a new five part Soma Records project, LOUDER THAN CHAOS
As we all know, last March the world was halted and clubs, parties and festivals very much put on hold, as the pandemic stopped almost everything dead in its tracks. No social gatherings, self-isolation, a sense of panic and bewilderment prevailed. An industry that had become so dependent on human connection and unity, was suddenly switched off and put on pause for an unforeseeable future.
While the clubs and events obviously had to stop while vaccines and plans were made, the creation of music was all the dance industry still had power over, which was where Slam’s ‘Louder Than Chaos’ project was born.
Facilitated by Soma Records’ head honchos and techno pioneers, Slam reached out for their brand new project, wanting to collaborative with friends, colleagues and contemporaries who they would usually only seen at airports, or events, now brought together under a completely different set of circumstances, thus allowing for a purposeful connection in a time of disconnect.
The focus of the project has been built on a powerful mutual participation, remotely constructed over time and fully intended for peak time dance floors, ready and waiting for the nightclubs and festivals inevitable return. That time has now finally come.
The Louder Than Chaos project is a series of 5 releases, on 12 vinyl” & Digital, to be released monthly via Soma Records. Featuring collaborations between Slam & Hector Oaks, Slam & 999999999, Slam & Keith Tucker (AKA Optic Nerve), Slam & Amelie Lens, Slam & Rebekah, Slam & AnD and finally Slam & Perc.
You can now listen to the first of these collaborations, as Slam and Hector Oaks track ‘Pathfinder’ has been previewed on the Soma Records SoundCloud page. You can pre-order the first 3 collaboration here.
