the vendetta suite "the world in winter"
"A mix to ease the Yuletide hangover with a glass of dry sherry and a jazz woodbine or two“, that’s how Gary Irwin, the man behind the project by the lovely name The Vendetta Suite, describes his christmas contribution. We totally agree as a mix almost can’t get cozier than this one. It’s xmas-stuff without being xmas kitsch, something you could even listen with your mom without feeling embarrased.
No easy task, but not for Gary. This irishman has been around for ages and is probably best known for his work with David Holmes, acting as engineer on Holmes' This Film's Crap Let's Slash The Seats and co-wrote Love Reign Over Me on his The Holy Pictures album, plus a range of remixes the duo undertook for names like Alter Ego, Richie Hawtin, and Andrew Weatherall. Gary also produced Techno as C.P.U. and Synthetic Science for David's Exploding Plastic Inevitable label. Last week he's released the 6-track Solar Lodge 23 E.P. on Italy's Hell Yeah! which we highly recommend as a gift to yourself and beloved music lovers.
