Numbers to Reissue First 12" with a New Ricardo Villalobos Remix; Preview It Now
- Words: James Eaton
The excellent Glaswegian label Numbers has had one hell of a year, with remarkable releases from the likes of Doc Daneeka, Sophie, and Deadboy filling out its discography and a series of celebratory events going down for its tenth anniversary. Now, in keeping with that spirit, the imprint will reissue its very first 12", Sparky's Portland, along with two previously unheard tracks from Sparky and a new remix by minimal techno legend Ricardo Villalobos. Astoundingly, Villalobos' version of "Portland" clocks in at 30 minutes, and is therefore split into two parts across the double-12" reissue. The two new Sparky tracks are said to be culled from the original 1998 sessions during which the DJ/producer recorded "Portland," and will fill out the re-release when it's made available on December 9. Before then, previews of each tune can be found below, and pre-orders can be made here.
