* UPDATE 12/10/14: THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED *
I’ve been a huge fan of The Illuminated for almost as long as I’ve known about them. I discovered the Dutch trio of Maarten, Yuri and Joep after hearing one of their first dubs played by Skream and Benga on their Radio 1 Dubstep Show in April in 2012.
I got in contact with them and sorted a MakeItGood x FKOF feature (along with a FKOF EP and a brilliant mix) here on FKOF in May of that year – and have stayed in almost daily contact with the crew since then, visiting them in Maastricht for the FKOF x MaasBASS takeover and releasing one of their tunes on our FKOFUn/Known01 compilation in early 2013.
Rolling in 2014, the trio are coming up to their debut vinyl release on the esteemed New Moon Recordings imprint – a label who have put out quality music from the likes of Perverse, Killawatt, Thelem and Truth. And, as it happens, the release is the same track first supported by Skream and Benga two years ago…
Yuri hit me up over the Christmas break to offer up a test press of NMN009 ahead of its vinyl and digital release on 13/01/14. New Moon have just put up the 12″ pre-order, which you can purchase from the label from their webstore here, and the Juno pre-order recently went live if the digital release is more your thing.
To celebrate their debut vinyl release, something every producer dreams of, we’re teaming up with Dyzz, Vence and Rebus to give you guys the chance to win one of the 5 test presses in existence. The idea behind the competition is simple (like the majority of comps we do): simply like The Illuminated, FKOF and New Moon on Facebook – and like and publicly share -> this post <- to enter.
The comp runs from today (03/01/14) for just over a week – closing 12/10/14 – before the release drops on the 13th. The winner will win the NMN009 test press and we’ll throw in some FKOF and Underslung Audio stickers as well.
