Wild Life by Radio Slave
Radio Slave drops the disco house stormer Wild Life on his Rekids this month.
Following the recently dropped "Strobe Queen", which picked up support from Honey Dijon, Sean Johnston, Laurent Garnier, BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong, and Danny Howard amongst many more, Radio Slave returns with another standout House cut "Wild Life", turning in two exceptional Disco and Dub mixes.
I've always adored the "Wildpitch" era of DJ Pierre, Roy Davis Jnr, DJ Duke, and labels like Power Music It's definitely influenced my work as Radio Slave, and "Wild Life" started out as a nod to that early nighties sound. Conceived during the pandemic, I had the track mapped out, and then with help of a good friend I decided to add live bass, and loads of analog keyboards and record the whole thing live and it became this super funky disco jam.
Radio Slave aka Matt Edwards is one of dance music's undisputed heavyweights. Having made his name as a DJ in the 90s, he went on to become the king of edits, twisting pop, R&B, and indie cuts into essential versions that consistently set clubs alight. Since the mid-2000s, Edwards' originals have helped define modern dance music, tackling techno, house, breakbeat, minimal, and disco whilst exploring dub, Balearic sounds, and ambient across the myriad of other aliases and projects.
