R. Taylor, Two Sharp Pencils (remix) 12" released July 24

Anna Wall & Corbi’s take on Queen drummer Roger Taylor’s ‘Two Sharp Pencils (Get Bad)’. The result? One of the most unlikely and essential party records of 2017.

Queen and house music: not necessarily the most obvious of bedfellows, but Music For Freaks has never been a label to take the path most travelled. Over the course of their decades long journey the label founded by Luke Solomon and Justin Harris has released uniquely idiosyncratic dance music, establishing the label as a go-to imprint for those seeking imaginative, unpredictable records that still undeniably work on the dancefloor. Their latest release might well be among the most out-there of them all. Originally released back in 1984, ‘Two Sharp Pencils (Get Bad)’ is a record by Queen drummer Roger Taylor, featuring him on vocals as well as drums, bass & guitar. Now brought bang up to date via a fully official and endorsed remix courtesy of Anna Wall & Corbi, this overlooked album track looks set to become one of the summer’s most essential records. Born and bred in the UK, Anna Wall is a DJ, producer and label owner who is a key player in London’s underground house music scene. Her label The Bricks champions up-and-coming producers, while Anna herself has DJ’d all over the world, most recently for Mixmag at Pacha for their IMS launch party. Corbi is an Ibiza-based DJ and producer, A&R for the highly respected FINA Records and co-founder of Melon Bomb, a party and DJ collective that has in the space of just a couple of years become one of the White Isle’s most talked-about exports. Having met while working at house giant Defected Records some years ago, Anna felt that Corbi would be the perfect studio accomplice to work on the remix of ‘Two Sharp Pencils’.
