Bigger than the news that the original house gangster DJ Sneak and Mr. Nice Guy Jesse Perez have hooked up to land on Hot Creations, is the news that Ricardo Villalobos has delivered a remix.

Back & Forth isn’t due to be released until the 1st February 2019, but it certainly contains all the ingredients to file under: highly-anticipated. In addition to Sneak & Perez’s original and the barmy Chilean’s midas touch remix, the release also includes two version for DJ Lukke. Naturally, it’s Ricky V’s that we are gravitating towards, as he makes a rare outing on a hype label.

2018 has proved to be fruitful year for Villalobos in the studio, with us being treated to releases on Sleep Is Commercial, Pressure Traxx, raum muzik, Toi Toi, Get Physical and Dekmantel. Attendees at this winter’s Epizode festival will be hopeful he carry that rich vein of creativity into 2019, as he returns to Vietnam’s premier electronic music festival. Taking place in Phú Quốc in the country’s southern region between 28th December and 8th January, Villalobos joins [a:rpia:r], Sonja Moonear and Zip for the third edition. It you should be lucky enough to find yourself in that part of the world this new year, it’s a no brainer on experience this slice of South East Asian hedonism.

5th release tickets are on sale now.
