Manic Street Preachers – Europa Geht Durch Mich (Erol Alkan Reworks) PH37

In advance of their forthcoming album ‘Futurology’, Manic Street Preachers announce a special 12” vinyl press of the single ‘Europa Geht Durch Mich’ remixed by Erol Alkan. The forthcoming release features two different signature reworks on a limited edition 12”, alongside a digital exclusive with Beatport.

In original form “Europa Geht Durch Mich” is classic Manics and the subtle motorik feel is enhanced by guest vocals from German actress Nina Hoss, and it’s her contribution that Alkan leads with on the ‘Mesmerise Eins’ rework. A singular line is twisted around a techno production that unfolds with dancefloor precision. The accompanying ‘Mesmerise Zwei’ rework takes a darker, dubbier and more psychedelic approach with Alkan’s production skills shining through in the mind bending way Hoss’s vocal is manipulated.

Pulse Radio Classics: Erol Alkan’s Bugged In / Bugged Out Compilation

Self-Titled: Erol Alkan’s Record Collection

As he continues to cultivate fresh material for his second solo EP, we thought we’d ask Erol Alkan about his first love: records. Not just any old stack of 12-inches, either; we’re talking the music that’s marked key points throughout the DJ/producer’s career, from his long-running—and hugely influential—Trash party in London to the Phantasy Sound imprint that’s taken its place in many ways. – Self Titled

Rumble In The Jumble #3

The Music Circle is back with another Rumble in the Jumble in association with Oxfam on April 26, after a hugely successful celebrity sale in 2013, which raised over £16,000 and featured designer donations from the likes of Erol Alkan, Damon Albarn, Alison Mosshart, Fearne Cotton, Daisy Lowe and Annie Mac.

The event is raising money and awareness for women in the DRC, the victims of “the world’s most forgotten conflict”, who face constant threats of forced displacement, sexual violence, abduction and extortion. This harrowing clip explains what is going on and underlines why we are supporting the women who live there.

All you need to do is bring a bag of jumble, pay £3 entry on the door, and get ready to rumble in the jumble!
