This is a very special release from Nang to sit alongside our five year anniversary record. This is a compilation of remixes from some exciting and varied producers. Rewind to 2009….We had just started Nang Records; we needed a motto and a call-to-arms mission statement. The best we could come up with was, "We are doing it for the love, that's for sure". Although we may have made that up on the spot, looking back now we think we were bang on. Being an independent record label is the sweetest of labours. We gave up trying to break even years ago. It is hard to believe we started 5 years ago (and a bit), it just seems like yesterday. Lots of ups, a few downs, a few "ones-that-got-away", plenty of laughter, some great new buddies and of course, lots of great tunes.
Big problems, big problems. How do you encompass 5 years of Nang and over 600 tracks into one single compilation? - So many favorites, so many touchstones to points in our history. In the end the formula was somewhere along these lines: Take a few tracks which have that distinctive Nang vibe and flavour, take a few tracks which the fans liked (and bought) and then take a few pivotal tracks in our timeline.
So to complement our 5 years of Nang compilation, we have here a selection of remixes of some our favourite tunes off the record by some very exciting producers. First up we are off to Sheffield with the pairing of Human League singer Phil Oakey and Hiem. Their "2AM" cracker gets a blippy house re-rub from scene stalwart Si Begg. Italian DJ legend Daniele Baldelli and DJ Rocca get their "Real Like the Music" vocal house groover remixed by London based office-dropper-inner Pete Herbert. Big grooves abound. Slovenian italo disco meister Sare Havlicek is next up with the lead single from his second Nang album "Vibe on You". Once again James Bright helps us out of a tight spot with a big rumbling disco house version. A celebration of all things Nang would not be complete without (another) remix from our first ever release "More" from D-Pulse". Slovenian Ichisan steps up to the plate with his trademark Adriatic disco-house shiner.
So there you have it. We plan to keep putting out music we adore. We are scheduled up to 150 releases and there a plenty of nifty projects in the works. Here's to the next 5 years...
