NEW TUNE: Hostage Remixes Ian Brown!
When I was on my Honeymoon I spent a lot of time listening to, and reading about, The Stone Roses. My first memory of the band really is "Fools Gold", which is not surprising, seeing as I was really young and don't remember anything else coming out from them prior to that on U.S. radio!
Charles from The Spirit Of Albion and I are both big fans of the Roses, as well as The Seahorses, and good old Ian Brown himself. I'm pretty sure I can speak for him and say we are also big fans of Hostage.
Hostage has become the portrait of what a DJ should be like in this new musical economy. He's kind, accessable, very considerate, honest, gives away loads of free music, writes good tunes, and has fun doing it! I hope if I ever make it that I manage to be that way... and I think there are a good lot of you out there who could learn from his example. Doesn't seem like the type of guy who would forget the people who supported him over the years; in other words a nice bloke.
Talking to him earlier this morning he sent me a list of tracks and I was elated to see that he had done a remix for the previously mentioned Mr Brown. He said it was just a little rerub for club consumption... but that doesn't make it any less cool. In fact I like this more as a club song and he chooses the right elements to play up for sure. So, with his blessing, I present you with the Hostage remix of "Stellify"

Thanks again to Hostage for the tune... I'll leave you with the video for "Stellify"... I'll be back soon!
