Discomendments - Sleeping Giant (Pete Herbert)
One time proprietor of the infamous Atlas Records shop in Soho, London over a decade ago, Pete divides his time these days either behind the wheels of steel at clubs and parties around Europe or in the studio working solo or with friends on their various musical projects...
For Eskimo Recordings in Belguim Pete releases as Reverso 68 with the balearic timelord himself Phil Mison releasing recent classics such as Tokyo Disko, Especial and have just re-released Piece Together (with Todd Terje on remix duty) as well as remixing the likes of Juan Maclean, Ajello, Bent and Badly Drawn Boy amoungst others and are currently working towards an album due out soon. Pete and Phil also record as Frontera for Danish label Music For Dreams, and are currently recording album number 2 for them.
Pete also records as LSB alongside Barcelonas finest DJ and club terrorist Babyg. Two monster hits for Eskimo, plus two mini albums-worth of re-edits on their own label Superdiscoteca in the last few year and a string of peaktime dancefloor remixes for the likes of Ilija Rudman, Low Motion Disco and Brazilian band The Pink Monkey Flowers have seen the LSB sound rise to the fore in recent times.Pete also records under his own name for his label Specialist Interests as well as teaming up with Barry Reeves for new label MAXI DISCS with the first release of Tropical House by Norwegian Marius in the shops now. Check DISCOGRAPHY.
When not in the studio Pete can be found regularly behind the decks at places such as Fabric in his native London and other forward thinking clubs around Europe such as Mondos and Goa in Madrid, Cafe Capitol in Belguim and has recently and regularly done stints djing in Australia, Indonesia, Brazil, India, Russia, Lithuania, Paris, Ibiza,Tel Aviv and beyond... expect a unexpected mix of Balearic leftfield disco/house/italo/dub/funk and beyond!!
