    January 2012, a London so cold the wind racing between shiny high-rise offices feels like it's etching permanent lines into my face. There's a few hours to kill before the train departs so I duck into Rough Trade on Brick Lane. The light and the warmth washes over me like a hot bath, along with something drifting out of the soundsystem, something slow and tough but also achingly beautiful, dirty burbling acid colliding in low earth orbit with luscious sweeping pads and delicate chimes. It's Sean Johnston's new release, the counter clerk tells me, championed by none other than Andrew Weatherall.

    Thus began the long and winding story of how I rediscovered Weatherall after years of neglect and fell in love with the cosmic slo-mo everything-goes disco sound he and Johnston made the stuff of legend with their A Love From Outer Space parties, culminating in one of the best nights of my life as he played for 6 hours in a backroom the size of your kitchen at Back To Basics, some 22 months after that ice-cold evening in London.

    But back to the record. Weatherall's mix chugs and clanks like the world's funkiest factory conveyor belt, used to great effect by the man himself on his Masterpiece compilation for none other than the Ministry Of Sound (no really - buy it). Toby Tobias nudges the tempo up to more DJ-friendly climes and goes deep and dreamy. But it's the original that's still my favourite. Filth of the most beautiful variety.
