Phonica Records kick off 2011 with the fourth installment of their limited Phonica Whites series, pairing the production talents of Luv Jam with the first ever official remix by the phenomenon that is Cottam. Luv Jam - better known as Andy Cole - made his name through outings on We Play House and Lany Recordings, and 'Mature Oak' finds him in fine form; an epic, atmospheric track poised on a bed of analog synths and warm pads, driven by galloping drum mechanics that gradually give way to its climax, an irresistibly squelchy acid bassline that marks it as one of Cole's most memorable productions to date. On the flipside, Cottam, whose past 12"s represent serious collector's items, stays true to his roots, taking the original's acid line and rolling it into a loose, motorik chugger that begs for a soundsystem loud enough to do it justice. Limited vinyl pressing of 444 copies – hand stamped and numbered. Special artwork by Pedro Carvalho de Almeida.
