FACT MIXES - FACT Magazine: Music News, New Music.: FACT mix 492: Frank & Tony
May 10, 2015 1:27 PM - Subscribe

Francis Harris and Anthony Collins air their Breakaway edits on an exquisite house session.

Since 2012, the New York-based pair have been honing their vision of deep house across a singles on the Scissor and Thread label and their residency at Brooklyn's The Panther Room, gaining the support of DJ Sprinkles in the process. Last year, they released their debut album You Go Girl, which stayed true to the duo's deep house foundations while also exploring dubbier sounds indebted to Basic Channel et al.

Frank & Tony's FACT mix is entirely made up of their own edits of Mogwai, Herbert, Roedelius and more… Grouper's never grooved like this, in other words.

  1. Desert Sound Colony – Riverbed (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  2. Donato Wharton – Absentia (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  3. Grouper – Come Softly (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  4. Herbert – I Hadn't Known (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  5. Mogwai – Heard About You Last Night (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  6. Loscil – Cascadia Terminal (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  7. Dj Koze – Hummell (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  8. Solo Andata – A Ballet of Hands (F&T Breakaway Edit)
  9. Roedelius – Harold (F&T Breakaway Edit)

I've really been enjoying this mix; it's been my work background for a while, and unlike most fact mixes it'll be a keeper for the long term. I'm a little surprised because I didn't really like Francis Harris's solo album from last year. Seems like Tony's bringing something good to the combination.

Yes, let's discuss FACT mixes! Really, any chance to discuss new music is good by me.

These artists are new to me, and now nearing the end of my first listen, I dig it all, but nothing stands out just yet. Good, chugging downtempo housey stuff. Up next: Squarepusher!

Thank you for this entry here. I'm a sucker for House mixes and this Deep House one made my ears smile.
