Laidback Luke + MSTRKRFT

Nervous Records were really one of the coolest labels around the mid-90s when I was a huge fan of American garage house music. The logo with the guy who gets his hair cut off by a flying vinyl record was a seal of quality, and legendary artists like Byron Stingily, Masters At Work, Joey Beltram, Frankie Knuckles, Joe T. Vannelli and Kim English (just to name a few) were all released there. It's cool that they still are an important dance label even today with artists like Boris and Oscar G.

Recently huge progressive house star Laidback Luke released his "Till Tonight" EP there. It features vocalist Jonathan Mendelsohn (who will be performing "Till Tonight" at Pacha NYC on October 15 by the way) and remixes by Ferry Corsten, Tom Trago, Chris Kaeser and Canadians MSTRKRFT. Since it's been a while we posted something from the Toronto duo, I thought I'd just throw this up here as a break from all the synth-pop and indie electro we've been posting lately. This track will also get you into that Friday night party mood.
