Yes they are – they’re back – not just back after a four year absence but back….to reclaim the dance floor.
It’s funny that after fifteen years of existence (and well over 10 million records sold) Faithless have never been more relevant; think Calvin Harris’ recent number 1 or the countless tracks with a house groove, riff and rapper, Faithless’ signature sound adopted by many, bettered by none. Name checked by everyone from Hadouken to Tinchy, this band is legendary, but they are also on tip-top form:
The single – Not Going Home – a club symphony, a 7 minute sonic call-to-arms, released May 7th through Nate’s Tunes/Liberator Music. The album – a feast of groove and emotion – here to show you how it’s done: a culmination of over a decade’s worth of dance floor shaking, stadium-headlining, musical mastery.
Remixes of ‘Not Going Home’ come from Eric Prydz, Armin van Burren, Hervé and Seiji: all in all, it doesn’t come much better.
