To be honest. I’m not quite sure what to say about this track. This remake of Boney M’s Gotta Go Home has been immensely hyped since it was played way back at the WMCs at the start of the summer. Apparently due to issues about clearing the sample, it’s only come out now. On Juno, not Beatport, and only in some parts of the world. After so many recreations and edits (O-God etc), everyone already knows what the track is, and frankly, the real production is a bit disappointing. Anyway, you can make your own mind up about it.

So I (Frankie) have decided to expand this blog from not just a blog about our Forward/Slash nights, but also into a general music blog, about the kind of music I play at the nights, and the music our guests play. I’m also aiming to start getting interviews from some of the guests, bands and DJs, and possibly some from international DJs and producers. Another thing I plan to do with the blog is to hand-pick DJs to do up a mix for the blog, to extend the mixes section to more than just live Forward/Slash mixes.
Forward/Slash are back to do another adventure in the Bernard Shaw. There’s something for anyone who needs a slash, with great bands and DJs inside, and weird shit like comedy and graphic scores on the bus.
