Morcee ‘Black Hole’ (Tight Knit Records)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2013 by E.N.

Morcee 'Black Hole' (Tight Knit Records)Tight Knit Records are proud to announce their inaugural label release from London-based DJ and producer, Charlie Potter aka Morcee. FeaturingFunkystepz-affiliated guest vocalist Lily McKenzie, ‘Black Hole’ is rhythmic yet stripped-down, showcasing his desire to shy away from traditional patterns and structures. ‘Control’ kicks off with arpeggiated synths that slowly open out over a frenetic beat, once again proving the ‘less is more’ production style carries through every stage of his creative process.

Morcee was sold by the DIY mentality and direct attitude of early jungle through to the white label grime scene. However, being too young to go to events and experience it first-hand for himself this era became his very own ‘summer of love’, having to settle on glimpses of the past through low quality radio rips and tape packs.

Outside of DJing and producing he’s working collaboratively on Tight Knit Records. The focus is as much on the design and detail as it is on the music and this also resonates with his aspirations as a producer, to make something people want to hold onto – a rarity in a time of such instant disposability.

Release date: 9th September 2013
Format: Vinyl / Digital

Cat No: TKR001

Tracklisting:

A Black Hole
B1 Control
B2 Black Hole (Instrumental)

Pedro 123 – Slush EP – Get Some(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2012 by E.N.

In between running a taste-making music blog and club night of the same name the label arm of Get Some presents its fifth release, the Slush EP, from the precocious talent that is South-London’s own Pedro 123. After a flurry of groundwork over the past year having remixed tracks for Trim, MIK, Lakosa & iO and Starkey it’s evident that his passion for Grime and Garage is the stimulus for his tracks. It’s no surprise then, that the 18-year-old has already received praise and multiple spins from Radio 1’s Skream & Benga, Dirtybird’s French Fries and Rinse FM’s Roska, Brackles and Monki for his well-informed approach to his productions.
Title track Slush sees playful Zomby-esque synths teased over a thumping kick drum which acts as the skeleton of track whilst groove-laden drums interject for some off-kilter rhythmic patterns. Utilizing a selective sound palette, the raw textures and shape-shifting percussion compliment the minimalist aesthetic of the track and make for an intriguing A-side.
On the other side Jetpack Joyride benefits greatly from descending synth chords that are accompanied by a barrage of Eski-influenced kicks and snares. Whilst the track is slightly more urgent and unrestrained than the A-side it’s anchored by a heavily swung Garage drum pattern that gives it an old-school feel.
Remix duties come courtesy of highly-revered Bassline producer and Unknown to the Unknown signee, Checan, who takes the track back to ’95 on his reinterpretation. With a euphoric intro that evolves into crashing 4×4 drums, chopped Reggae vocals and sublow basslines the memorable synth-work of the original remains but with the addition of melancholic chords in the breakdown.
 
As London’s ever-evolving musical landscape ploughs on this addition to the melange sees a young producer who sticks firmly to his roots and adds a refreshing spin whilst doing so. With Pedro 123’s refined ear and multi-faceted music inspirations the release of the Slush EP sees him top off a landmark year with some of most accomplished work to date.

Guy Andrews – The Wait / Hands In Mine

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2012 by E.N.

Following last year’s triumphant debut on Untold’s imprint Hemlock, Brighton based producer Guy Andrews is back with his first 12″ for Hotflush Recordings. A superb followup to his 2011 auditory missive, The Wait / Hands in Mine merges percussive elements with heavy basslines resulting in two dark dancefloor cuts.

Side A is a bass-driven afrobeat stepper, while on the flip, Andrews shows off his ability to manipulate genres by using a deep bass kick and frenzied rhythmic percussion to dial up an atmospheric tune.

With recent acclaim from XLR8R, Resident Advisor and Truants along with DJ and radio support from the likes of Benji B, L-Vis 1990, Brackles, Sound Pellegrino, Shortstuff, Benjamin Damage and Throwing Snow, Guy Andrews is on the rise. Lookout for another 12″ via Hotflush this Fall.

Release date: May 28th 2012

stream “Peace Talks”

The LP continues rhythmically where last year’s ‘Fox Trot Mannerisms’ EP left off but launches into a different head space with lyrics touching on current affairs and technological dependency.

Juggling all angles from production, songwriting, MCing and singing, Pursuit Grooves continues what she does best, fusing elements of electronic, hip hop, house and broken beats with sensual melodies and vocals. ‘Frantically Hopeful’ challenges conversations and feet alike, offering a true backdrop to the world we live in today.

Pursuit Grooves has 4 albums under her belt plus numerous live gigs performed in the UK, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia and beyond. Having received kudos from Gilles Peterson, IDJ, DJ Magazine, Fact Mag, Boomkat etc for last years EP “Fox Trot Mannerisms”, Vanese Smith is one of the few producers in the eclectic beat scene who is also an energetic and skilled vocalist/MC who also mainly uses a hardware sampler when performing live. She is also a 2008 Redbull Music Academy alum which also included Onra, Teebs, Dorian Concept, Lukid, Cardopusher and Fatima. Providing sounds that are equal parts soul, house, and broken beat, Pursuit Grooves always DELIVERS!
