Soma500 is a very special release that sees label heads Slam visit two memorable tracks for them over this past anniversary year. The duo of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle rework Robert Hoods, The Bond We Formed - taken exclusively from the Soma25 compilation and a track that has featured highly in countless sets, a unique Slam rework of Carl Craigs interpretation of Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russoms, Relevee.
One of the most sought after tracks from this years Soma25 compilation, Robert Hoods jacked up The Bond We Formed is given two unique remixes from Slam. The first remix brings elements of Hoods original drum workout together with Slams spacial sequences. The second remix sees the pair go retro with an homage to the minimal master, utilising proper 90s tripped out tonality.
The B-side brings together the minds of Detroits Carl Craig and Slam as the Glaswegian pair rework Carls remix into a full on Techno anthem. The instantly recognisable synth work plays the major part with thunderous percussive work helming the backbone of this monster as it swells to a rapturous crescendo.
