Towards the end of 2011 we saw the first part of Mr. Jones and George Lanham’s collaborations. The Dutch / British duo had met on SoundCloud and started sending parts back and forth (hence the name, Broadband Collaborations). The third of these tracks was picked up by Dave Clarke who charted it as his no.1 track of that year.
Fast forward a year later and Jones and Lanham met up in George's Hackney London studio, where their instant production chemistry resulted in a second release, ‘Broadband Collaborations II’, released February 2013 on The Public Stand.
Since those first outings George Lanham went on to found his Pareto Park empire and moved to Barcelona, while Mr. Jones teamed up with Dave Clarke to form _Unsubscribe_ besides making music as a solo artist. But as both successfully ventured onto their own endeavours, their schedules conflicted more and more. Never say never, but this just might be the last instalment of their ‘Broadband Collaborations’ series.
‘Broadband Collaborations III: Hackney Movement’ contains two tracks, ‘Collab 9’ with its pure, sinister Lanham style stabs, arranged in the Mr. Jones-impossible-to-replicate organic manner and ‘Hackney Movement’, an evil jacker, taking on an old-school Chicago groove alongside a modern array of distortion methods with a twist, as they top it off with a huge hip hop style snare drum, proving that techno still has no strict formula.

Finally ;-) Been playing ‘Collab 9’ since early 2011, a strong track that is timeless.
