On their most recent album ‘Late Night Party Line’, longstanding UK house duo PBR Streetgang teamed up with the mighty Ron Basejam on the track ‘Montu’. A triumphant ode to classic piano house anthems, the track was one of the album’s most joyous moments.
“Montu is a salute to the UK's 90's piano house culture,” the pair said at the time of the track’s release. “It's big, bold and fun! Think 'Space terrace back in the day’. Montu is a cheeky nod to those glorious days. We simply wanted to make a record that could transport us to that place”

Paul Woolford has revealed via Twitter that he had a hand in the music for Blade Runner 2049, specifically for the film's new trailer, which dropped this week.
Whether his contribution extends the film's actual score we're not entirely sure, as it's common knowledge that the film's soundtrack has been created by Jóhann Jóhannsson, who has worked with the film's director, Denis Villeneuve, on several of his previous films including the excellent Arrival, Sicario and Prisoner.
Paul Woolford is a man of many talents. Having recently graced our cover (read the feature here), the Leeds underground producer is now flexing his Special Request muscles with a just-announced series of EPs.
Following a recent EP on Numbers (‘Pride’ made him a DJ Mag office favourite) as well as releases on Cocoon, Ostgut Ton and Stroboscopic, British producer Kevin Gorman recently announced a brand new set of club weapons on Local Talk.

Reinvention is a tough gig. But if you get it right, a whole new life is possible. No one in dance music's managed this more successfully than Paul Woolford and his hardcore junglist alter ego Special Request.
