As we step into 2021, the Hooversound duo (SHERELLE and NAINA) are determined to keep the excitement up by kicking off the year with one of their favourite, most influential producers.
The first release of the year combines an iconic name in dance music, a man who needs no introduction; Paul Woolford, aka Special Request with a producer who has been turning heads within the modern jungle scene…Tim Reaper.
Back in 2019, Special Request dropped his fourth and final album of the year, ‘Zero Fucks’. 10 original tracks bursting with energy, made especially for the dance. The body of work concentrates “purely on the heavyweight original hardcore ethos of taking whatever you want from anywhere”. In true Special Request style, it followed the release of three previous albums in the same year; ‘VORTEX’, ‘Bedroom Tapes’ and ‘Offworld’.
HOO05 sees four tracks taken from ‘Zero Fucks’ being remixed into a new body of work, exclusively by Tim Reaper. Reaper has spent the last ten years or so representing the jungle scene with releases on 7th Storey, Parallax Recordings, and most recently with Lobster Theremin. He’s also been busy launching his new label ‘Future Retro’, named perfectly given his ability to produce new music that pays homage to its roots without simply re-creating it. That’s exactly what is laced throughout ‘Hooversound Presents: Special Request x Tim Reaper’, Tim perfectly executes four remixes that sound nostalgic yet forward-thinking- a skill to be very excited about, making him one of the most talked-about producers on the scene.
