“At the South Tottenham coal face – 1100 sharp – with 2 cups of tea, a smoke, an echo pedal and a couple of synths, the commander lead the charge and I followed. 24 hours to complete the mission. The orders were loud and clear: focus the rifle sights on the acid, discard all the “airy fairy bollocks”, call in some chattering machines and an air strike of echo. Finally, of course, the track length must be doubled – the commander doesn’t do things in halves.” Jono Ma
Ahead of their upcoming UK headline tour, today Jagwar Ma share a brand new remix of ‘Give Me A Reason’ by long term friend and studio neighbour Andrew Weatherall alongside Jono Ma. Mr Weatherall has also been confirmed as special guest DJ at the band’s biggest UK headline show to date at The Forum in London on March 15th.
October saw the release of Jagwar Ma’s highly anticipated sophomore album – ‘Every Now & Then’. Alongside the singles ‘OB1’ and ‘Ordinary’, ‘Give Me A Reason’ has fast become a popular favourite both on record and in their live set.
“Weatherall meets Jonnie Two Heaters Uptown Part 1″ sees the two collaborators go head to head to create nine minutes of bass & beep alchemy, of which Mr Weatherall has said he, “took the sound of sunshine in the Antipodes and turned it into the sound of concrete after the rain somewhere in N16”.
Following its premiere on THUMP, listen to the remix
