Grant Smillie - Neon Essential Vol.2 Teaser
Tue 20th Oct, 2009 ITM-FMin
Having kicked off earlier this year with a debut compilation mixed by Melbourne club heavies TV Rock and Chardy, the ‘Neon Essential’ series from Warner’s upstart Neon Records imprint, quickly established itself as the new kid on the block. Clearly not wasting anytime in taking that reputation further, the Neon crew have lined up the next instalment in the series, overseen by a diverse trio of mixers including Grant Smillie, Don Diablo, and as previously reported on ITM, MTV poster-girl and former Sony inthemix50 host Ruby Rose.
Hitting stores Friday 16th October, the comp is stacked out with a slew of dancefloor favourites, from the likes of Fake Blood, Cassius, The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx and Tiesto, not to mention a few indie-dance curveballs on the Ruby Rose mix.
To launch Neon Essential Vol.2 with an extra bang, the Australian mix curators Ruby Rose and Grant Smillie (in solo and TV Rock incarnations) will trek around the country giving club hungry kids a taste of the Neon brand.
Check out the full tour dates below and stay tuned for ITM’s double-trouble interview with Ruby Rose and Grant Smillie shortly.
