Album Of The Week: Tangent

John Gómez and Nick The Record

Label: Mr Bongo
Release date: 12 July 2024

To celebrate a decade of one of London's most beloved underground club nights, Tangent, Mr Bongo proudly launches a new compilation series. Curated by resident DJs John Gomez and Nick the Record, this collection aims to capture the essence of Tangent's spirit. For this compilation, the duo has meticulously selected a range of prized, rare, and dancefloor-ready tracks from around the world, reflecting the musical journeys that have defined Tangent's parties over the past ten years.

Tangent’s longevity is in part down to it having always embraced contemporary sounds. The sub-rattling bass of Srirajah Sound System’s stunning Molam dub stepper ‘Si Phan Don Lovers Rock’ and the slow, woozy mantra of leftfield dancehall explorer Androo’s ‘Lyriso’, are two shining examples.

This compilation represents an ongoing dialogue between past and present, transporting listeners to the heart of a pure musical experience, where open minds and open hearts are eager to follow the tangent.

'John Gómez and Nick the Record Present TANGENT’ is available on limited edition 2 x Cream Vinyl LP, 2 x Black Vinyl LP and Double CD.
