If you’re a regular punter at almost any Bugged Out party, and you’re an early bird who likes to catch the electronic worm then you’ll have know doubt come across Lemmy Ashton; a noble electronic soldier who has been on Bugged Out’s frontline warming up crowds for years letting his peers take all the lime light and glory.
Well not anymore. Over the last 18 months, he has begun to migrate to the creature comforts of the studio, taking something of an electronic shore leave to work on his own brand of Bugged Out’s famed rugged sound that has seen the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk plying their trade at the club night over the years.
Clearly, then, Ashton has the weight of expectation on his shoulders, and we’re glad to report his debut release on his own newly minted label TNC proves to be something of an unexpected surprise.
We’re premiering one of the tracks, ‘Breaker Breaker’, and it sees Ashton blend disco rthyms with stodgy, twanging basslines and a infectious disco vocal for a dance floor-ready cut that sounds like it was forged in the foothills of Ghent by Lord Dewaele, and not in some pokey London flat by a man called Lemmy.
TNC001 is out September 2.
