We here at E.A.R have been lucky enough to have not only 2 remixes by Rob (BEAR008 Am I Still The One & more recently BEAR006 Moon), he has also played with us at our label party and NOW he has dug deep into his unbelievable record collection to provide us with this perfect mix of rare and beautiful tunes.
We caught up with the man himself…
Hey Rob. As a DJ/Producer known for your quality and attention to detail with your sound, do you feel that vinyl is still king when it comes to playing out?
I love vinyl for so many reasons but I think all mediums are great and should explored.
Vinyl is very close to our hearts here at E.A.R HQ as you know. Do you still go to the dusty record stores and go through the crates to find a gem?
Do you have a “pride and joy” record that you are proud to be an owner of?
One in particular would be a tough choice. As a collection there are always gems that you need. It just never stops.
Whats happening with Disco 45 (Rob’s imprint) at the moment?
Just doing a small repress of the last release for Disco 45. We got so many enquiries on this vinyl only release after selling out, we decided to press a few more.
So if you want to catch Rob playing over the next couple of months, you will find him at Idiots are winning London with Chris Duckenfield and Luke Solomon, Sonar Festival One Illusions party W Hotel, Glastonbury Festival & NYC Downlow.
But if, like us, you can’t wait that long, download the exclusive podcast right here and you will see why Rob is still one of the most exciting DJs around. There’s no tracklist so trainspotter alert! See if you can recognise any of these sublime tunes.
Little bit of trivia for all you geeks out there – In 1999 Rob, with Matthew Herbert, wrote all the incidental music on the UK club culture movie ‘Human Traffic’ for which they were nominated for a BAFTA.
