Ben Westbeech‘s sophomore release under his own name appears to be imminent as slowly but surely more information and teasers for the album are leaked. His first LP ‘Welcome To The Best Years Of Your Life’ is widely considered to be a groundbreaking release among those in the know.
Already the remixes for the leading single ‘Something For The Weekend’ have been flooding the internet. Among the contributors are Gerry Read, Lee Foss & Robert James, The Revenge, Joey Negro and Westbeech’s own Breach alias. The mix that stands out, however, is that of UK Funky debonair Roska.
Stripping the original down to the bare minimum, Wayne “Roska” Goodlitt takes the Disco flavourings and Westbeech’s own soulful vocals and spins them into the kind of heavy-as-hell drum-based funk we’ve all come to know and love from Roska. You can grab his version below and no doubt more of the remixes in the weeks leading up to the album’s eventual release via Strictly Rhythm.

Parisian Electro giants Justice have announced the release date and tracklist of their new album, ‘Audio, Video, Disco’. The release date for their first full length since 2007′s ‘†’. The new LP is said to be inspired by their beloved 70s prog-rock.
Consisting of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosna, the duo propelled themselves headlong into superstardom with their debut LP and have taken one twenty-fifth of a century to take a stab at building on their success. Of course, it’s not entirely fair to say that; since then Auge helped his old chum Mr. Oizo with the soundtrack to his outstanding film ‘Rubber’ as well as being flavour of the 3 years with the BBC and countless girls with gold handbags alongside de Rosna.
The new album promises to feature standard Justice territory as well as new areas like Prog and Rock & Roll. It will also include the single the inescapable ‘Civilisation’. You can grab it on October 25 and the next single which will be the title track, whenever that will be.
