Mash and Idris Elba – Please Be True – PRESS RELEASE
‘Please Be True’ marks Love & Other’s inaugural single of 2017 by calling on Glaswegian label associate Martyn Henderson aka Mash. Having previously released on labels like Southern Fried, Toolroom, Glasgow Underground and Dirt Crew, it’s an honor to welcome his return and in such fine style. Teaming up with prolific British icon Idris Elba, the duo have effortlessly hatched a beautifully balanced record that crosses ambience, melody and minimalism in a crescendo of pleasantries.
Setting off with a good-natured groove and sturdy drum design; ‘Please Be True’ weaves through the stages with whirring synthes, percussive blips and warm atmospheres. A richly heartfelt vocal performance from Idris Elba allows for a truly rounded piece that artfully portrays both lust and vulnerability. Performed in a manner that wholly reflects the temperament of its musical counterpart.
On remix duty, UK’s finest DJ-connoisseur and beatsmith Sinden steps up to provide his club-fuelled interpretation. Flipping the vibe with squeaky-clean production and tightly tuned drums, Sinden creates a significantly warped bass-onslaught, with plenty of energy and wonk in the low end. Showing absolutely zero mercy in doing so. WOLF Music’s Greymatter also provides his unique take on the original, in preparation for his third LP ‘No Blood Without’ in spring 2017. In an elegant melancholy of downtempo club sounds Greymatter provides lo-fi drums, chugging percussion and a healthy dose of tape fuzz, providing the perfectly visceral post-club soundtrack.

After 21 years of ruining your Tuesday mornings. We have decided to call it a day.
When we started this there was no late night bars, no internet, no reality TV, nothing to do on a Monday night for the trade staff that had been working all weekend.
We brought a bit of the weekend clubbing to a Monday night. This ‘Trade night’ idea has been copied by many a club trying to cash in.
We invented Mondays.
In 21 years we have been at three venues every Monday, Volcano/Jet, The Apartment (then called Mas) and the Buff Club has been our home for over the last decade.
In that time the following people have come and DJ’d with us Joey Negro, Mylo, Groove Armada, Todd Terje, Kraak and Smaak, The Avalanches, Jacques Lu Cont, Howard Marks, Purple Disco Machine, Sinden, Harri, Jasper James, Mia Dora, Melting Pot, Joshua Barr, and many more.
This was started over 21 years ago by Normski and has seen him enlist the talents of Zeus, Richard, Cris Biguzzi, Owen, and Mash has been a resident for over a decade after being a regular guest over the years.
These people have partied with us on a Monday at Burn – Blondie, Dizzee Rascal, Mike Skinner, Calvin Harris, Kings Of Leon, Iron Maiden, George Benson, Public Enemy, Chic, Robyn, even the Spice Girls and most importantly yourself, and for that we would like to thank you for your support!
Burn has sound tracked many a works night out, sacking, missed Tuesday, friendship, inter work heavy petting, after party, sore head and many a good night out.
It has been a blast and we are delighted that an excuse to go out and play tunes and get melted on a Monday has lasted so long!
We would like you to come down and party at Burn for the last time on Monday 28th November.
Mash track ‘Shooting Brake’ has been chosen for the Best of Toolroom 2016 Compilation album alongside tracks from Mark Knight, Hannah Wants, Mambo Brothers, Illyus and Barrientos and more.
