Mountain Folk are to release the excellent new single Don’t Go Down There on 12″ vinyl later this month.
Mountain Folk is a new project on Jack to Phono Records. René Kirkegaard is a DJ/Producer based in Aarhus, Denmark. In 1997 René set up the record shop Dezigner Soundz which quickly became a focal point for vinyl crazy Aarhus DJs. It quickly established itself and had DJ Static running the hip hop section whilst René took care of electronica and house music. Winchester based Tom Eno has been busy recording acoustic material for his 2 studio albums to date and wanted to work on more electronic based project. René and Tom were introduced in 2011 and started to fire ideas across the North Sea – the rest is history.
The project got the attention of Alastair Lee, a film maker, who was so impressed that he used the track in his recent film Moonflower. He was also also generous enough to release footage from Alaska for the video.
There are two luminaries of the music world, Ashley Beedle (Afrikanz on Marz) and Sundogs (Tactical Hots Records), who have remixed the track for the 12-inch release. The track has also been played on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, XFM and Danish National Radio in recent weeks. Tom makes his singing debut on the track and the mix of acoustic guitar blended with René’s electronic world make the sound unique on JTP. The album is in production and will follow later in 2012.
Don’t Go Down There will be released on 12″ vinyl on June 25th on Jack to Phono Records.
