If you listened to Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 on Friday night you will have heard him make a very special announcement…
Thanks to Alan Fitzpatrick, Reset Robot and of course the The xx for giving this the go ahead, the amazing “SILICONE SHELTER” (KING UNIQUE BOOTLEG MIX) can now be downloaded as a full quality 320mp3 for FREE at www.siliconeshelter.com
or download below from Soundcloud.
Matt Thomas (aka King Unique) came up with this very cheeky idea while planning a few secret weapon edits. 2hrs of fiddling later he arrived at something that was so wrong it was right! This is HUGE!!! You may have heard it recently being played by Tong, Tiesto, and on John Digweed’s Transitions radio show, so grab it now, before its too late!
Matt has also put a whole raft of KU bootlegs past & present from the archives on to Soundcloud. :
There’s ten KU bootlegs on there including the brand new “Fatale Feeling” bootleg that Sasha & Digweed dropped at their WMC yacht party. Original tracks are Layo & Bushwacka “Femme Fatale” and Shit Robot “I Gotta Feeling”. None of these are available for download (yet…) but you can stream them and get excited!

Bedrock – Bed86R
Release: 03 May 2010
1. 2 Million Suns (John Digweed & Nick Muir Remix)
2. Feniksas (Fergie Remix)
Bigger than big! Larger than large! Here are 2 massive remixes of King Unique’s recent chart topping single ‘2 Million Suns’/’Feniksas’. People are screaming to get hold of these remixes, so you’re very lucky to get them first here!
After the massive success of the original King Unique versions, Bedrock returns with a huge remix package featuring remixes from John Digweed & Nick Muir, along with Fergie. Already causing a stir from the parties at WMC and with John Digweed’s Easter Bedrock party, this is set to be another stellar release from the label that is going from strength to strength in 2010.
The mighty King Unique returned to centre stage is March 2010 with a ‘cosmic techno’ sound pressing all the right melodic & psychedelic buttons and some retro-techno goodness, which found its way into the record boxes and hard-drives of DJs across the board worldwide.
Matt Thomas (aka King Unique) kicked off his tenth year at the forefront of the British house scene with a new direction, walking the fine line that prevails between techno, house and progressive. KU’s self-dubbed ‘cosmic techno’ sound has found it’s perfect home on a favourite label – John Digweed’s Bedrock.
Now Matt’s original versions are expanded upon with two mega big room interpretations. John Digweed & Nick Muir’s rocket-fuelled remix of ‘2 Million Suns’ features a very BIG finale. Insane! No less impressive is Fergie’s irrepressible energetic remix of ‘Feniksas’. Slamming! Enjoy!
Thanks to our Friends from UKF PR we have this two massive tracks,remixes for streaming,listen via soundcloud and preorder at your record store or HERE

KING UNIQUE – APRIL CHART – ten tunes in no particular order
Marc Marzenit – “Tulku” Cocoon
Marc on Cocoon. Schumacher in a Ferrari. Fish and chips. Enough said.
King Unique – “2000000 Suns (John Digweed & Nick Muir Remix)” Bedrock
When I asked John to remix 2000000 I knew it would be good – but this is spectacular. Eerie make-you-wait’ vibe that suddenly delivers you into a very loud dark place.
Spada – “Happiness” Manual Music
Huge mad record alert. Fucked-up autistic Border Community-does-donk vibes, like a Justice remix of the Pacman theme.
Mike Sheridan & Mads Langer – “Too Close (Sei A Remix)” R&S
Scandinavian emo-vocal business, given a superb, rich remix from Sei A. Echoes of Boratto and Âme in there, love it.
Triangle – “Five (King Unique Remix)” Flow Vinyl
Just wrapped this one, blissed out vocals and cosmic techno vibes. Leaked a little video clip from this session onto Facebook – big reactions.
Ante Perry & Olivier Gregoire – “Zmaul” Systematic
Anything with Olivier Gregoire involved gets my instant attention, and “Zmaul” has become my first choice set-starter. Doesn’t matter what the dj before has been playing, it resets the night and gets everybody moving and smiling.
Danny Howells vs. Solomun – “Cloud Planets (King Unique Bootleg)” CDR
A big dose of Danny’s serene “Landing On Planets” layered and cut over the Manual Tur remix of Solomun’s “Cloud Dancer”. Goosebump music.
Chemical Brothers – “Lost & Found” Parlophone
The Brothers continue their psychedelic love affair with all things electronic, piggy-backing their blissed out arpeggios on to grungey French electro. Worthy of Soulwax at their messiest.
Steve Ward – “Invisible Papercut (Jamie Stevens Rites Of Passage Remix)” Chameleon Recordings
Crushing, crunching techno beats from Australia’s greatest skinny-tie wearing tech-house don. Something almost industrial going on here that I like.
Rodriguez Jr Vs Marc Romboy “Lac De Nivelles” Systematic
Two of techno’s finest and one moody lake – result. Great summer evening vibes, but the sort of evening that promises to get horribly strange later on…
