Dig Deep Recommends: Watson - To Rack & Ruin Volume 3: Digital Release


Back in September 2012 I was giving an early heads up regarding Watson's new 12" on the El Diablo Social Club's To Rack & Ruin label. The deal was a limited run of 300 hand stamped, hand sprayed copies would be doing the rounds by the end of the month.

The vinyl release sold out quickly, gaining support from the likes of Eric Duncan, Sleazy Beats, 78 Edits, Cottam, Red Greg and Osmose, and landed at the Number 1 spot in my 2012 End Of Year Chart.

Now in 2014 those good people at Juno Download have made the 2 track release available digitally for the first time; with plays from Chris Massey, Disco B, Superbreak, Goldboy and Spain's The Groovers all bringing the sought after tracks to a new audience.





'Get It On' is superb edit of the massive Millie Jackson track which was sampled on Carl Craig's remix of Tom Trago’s - 'Use Me Again' track.  After initially breaking Watson's edit at a Paper Recordings party, Cottam closed his recent set at Lovebox Festival with what is now a nu disco anthem. The more subtle but equally good 'Thoughts Of Yesterday' is a slo-mo groover dowsed in the soulful boogie vibes that Watson has been dropping in his DJ sets for time.
