Hear Tale of Us nail their Essential Mix debut
Fresh off releasing “their “EXpand remix from Plastikman’s EX live album, Berlin-based duo Tale Of Us have delivered a debut Essential Mix that many are declaring an early contender for the year’s best.
The pair duo- whom Essential Mix host Pete Tong describes in no uncertain terms as “one of the hottest acts on the planet” – have been blazing their way through the underground house circuit since meeting in Milan years ago. Aside from releasing their music for the likes of Visionquest and Minus, they also head rising label Life & Death. Their latest claim to fame, in addition to performing at Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. parties, is their oft-played remix of Caribou’s Can’t Do Without You.
As their Facebook page states, Tale Of Us have taken time off since the winter holiday to finish up their Essential Mix debut, among other tasks, and it certainly shows. Over the next two hours, you’ll hear the duo craft together a moving, masterfully-done mix featuring some of the scene’s most talented artists – Monoloc, Vermont, Slam, Joey Anderson and more – while showing off new cuts from the likes of Recondite, Stephan Bodzin and Scuba.
