Radio Slave (UK)

Radio Slave’s Matt Edwards is the central figure of the current British progressive house revival. An influential figure in dance circuits, in the last five years Edwards has ascended to the pinnacles of house music through a cavalry of aliases that include Radio Slave, REKID, and the Quiet Village Project (with Joel Martin). Radio Slave has an uncanny ear for bringing together all the major eras of house and techno – from Chicago jack-house to Detroit analog techno, from British progressive house to more minimal German strains – and blending them together into music that sounds altogether new yet inspiringly familiar. Edwards has also cultivated a talented roster of like-minded producers at his REKIDS label, which has become an indicator of high quality for dance music enthusiasts the world round through singles by Luke Solomon (also known as one-half of The Freaks), Toby Tobias, Mr. G, and Spencer Parker.
