The Late Night Tales series was established way back in 2001 with Fila Brazilia taking to the controls and mixing up the first of what would continue to be the choice of music connoisseurs worldwide.
The idea was to let the world’s best artists delve deep into their collections to create the ultimate late night collection.
Since its conception, we’ve seen the likes of Groove Armada, The Flaming Lips, Four Tet, Belle & Sebastian, Air and many more step up to produce their own individual take on the concept.
The series continues to dazzle with recent albums from Nouvelle Vague, Lindstrom and Fatboy Slim all exploring vastly different styles but all delivering a perfect musical package.
Not only is it a collection of the artist’s favourite tracks and inspirations, there’s also a special, and exclusive might we add, cover version included. This is the chance for our compilers to tackle a hidden gem or pay tribute to an idol by creating something totally new and exciting.
And as if all this wasn’t enough, each mix is put to sleep with a special Late Night spoken word story, taking in the likes of David Shrigley, Bootsy Collins, Brian Blessed, Alex Turner, Will Self and more recently Paul Morley.
So there we have it, look back, look forward, relax and enjoy…
