Bristol’s very own record label – and flag-flying record shop – Idle Hands on top form once again!

Bringing together two of our favourite producers pushing underground music in this city, Idle Hands put together a solid-as-fuck 12″ with Rhythmic Theory and a long-overdue, but well worth-the-wait October remix.

The best way to enjoy this record, is to place it on the turntable and really turn the volume up, but if you need further convincing, check the low-down from the label itself:

“Following an acclaimed release on Ancient Monarchy and ahead of his debut for Blackest Ever Black, Rhythmic Theory returns to Idle Hands for the third time. ‘Future Tense’ channels the spirit of era defining mid-90s DnB but twists it with a contemporary techno feel. A contemporary of Livity Sound and Hodge, Rhythmic Theory’s music sits closely to theirs but with a distinct sound palette all of his own. Never one to seek the limelight he has been working behind the scenes in the West Country music scene for many years, only now getting the recognition he deserves.

The same could be said of our choice of remixer, DJ October – who here turns in a killer version of the original in the shape of ‘Death Is Certain Dub’. A long time friend of Idle Hands, both the label and shop he really was overdue an appearance on the imprint. In fact, a little known fact is that were it not for a colossal hard drive failure many moons ago he would have appeared on one of our first releases. These things have a way of working themselves out eventually.”
