London has many a legendary FM radio station, from Kool to Kiss, Rude to BBC. This summer, Famous Eno adds yet another to the mix: All Good FM. With this release, the London DJ/producer (formerly half of rhythm gangsters Warrior One) explores all the best qualities of pirate radio: surprise, variety and the unadulterated sound of the underground.
Eno’s title track is full of straight-up UK flavors — it’s a seamless blend of ’90s house chords, UK funky sounds, and pirate radio hat-tips capped off with MC Stitch’s infectious vocals. Ripe for summer anthem season! Sticking to the same vibe, Eno enlists Ireland’s Arveene & Misk on the remix; the duo flips the track into a funky-tinged electro heavy-hitter that circles around samples that make it bounce, skate & roll. Turning the dial to Newark, Brick Bandits’ DJ Sliink gives this tune the Jersey treatment, chopping samples like a kung-fu master and kicking drum patterns guaranteed to hype the dance. Completing the release is Eno’s own remix, which takes the original beyond recognition in a flurry of hyperactive percussion, military snares and dancehall calls.
For all the lively massive and the phoneline crew, there’s only one station to be locked onto this summer: All Good FM.
