Best known as one half of legendary DJ team A Love From Outer Spacealongside the one-and-only Andrew Weatherall, Johnston’s roots in the dance music scene include a clutch of leftfield 90’s era bangers on labels like Sabres of Paradise and Flashcomm. Beyond his original output, Johnston has also remixed the likes of Man Power, The Asphodells, Museum Of Love, Split Secs, Clandestino and many more.
This is peaktime Hardway Bros business and shows how he has amassed such a broad international following with his singular brand of dance floor fodder. Title track “The Laser” rounds out the a-side with a classic electro rhythm/bass/vocal sample combo could easily have landed in retro territory. Instead, Hardway Bros easily flips a clutch of oldschool tricks into an utterly modern execution.
