Nile Rodgers To Feature Twice On Tensnake Album



What is there left to say about Tensnake? Apart from being one of the nicest guys in the scene the Hamburg native’s House sounds are drenched in the soul styling’s of the city where he quickly formed a big reputation for being one of the worlds leading purveyors of disco both in its ‘Nu’ format and original 80’s boogie. Then came the release of the huge ‘Coma Cat’ which stormed dance floors the world over and firmly established Tensnake in the upper echelons of DJing and now we have his hotly anticipated new album packed to the brim with all star collaborations set to drop later this year.

In a recent conversation with Tensnake the producer told us more about his plans for the album, firstly revealing that it will be a largely vocal affair with plenty of guests lending their talents to a variety of different styling’s and after enjoying 58 BPM we’re excited to see just exactly what he has been up to in the studio. Perhaps most excitingly he also revealed the nature of several of the big name collaborations that have made their way onto the release with man of the moment and disco legend Nile Rodgers making not one, but two appearances on the album to seriously up the funk quota after Tensnake contacted Nile online.

“The Nile collaboration was very organic, I just mailed him on Facebook. He replied about 10 minutes later, which I thought  was amazing, and not what I’d expected at all! We then met up for dinner at WMC and he was such a nice humble guy that we began making plans to work together. Both tracks we worked on are naturally very disco, I love it!”

Other artists set to feature on the eclectic album include Jamie Liddell and multi-monikered producer Stuart Price as the LP promises to explores avenues of “disco, R&B, downtempo pop and naturally house music”. Consider us excited…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
