‘Get Lost VII mixed by Craig Richards’ (Crosstown Rebels)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2014 by E.N.

CRMCD_027There aren’t many DJs you would choose to Get Lost with… However Craig Richards is certainly one. Following on from timeless Get Lost episodes from Acid Pauli and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Craig Richards is renowned for his role as resident and musical director at London’s fabric over the last 15 years. This is a rare insight into the aficionado and musical maverick’s all time favourite records from his 40 year old collection. The result is an extraordinary adventure named ‘Get Lost VII’ and a contender for mix of the year.

This is Craig’s eighth DJ Mix album, but this is his most personal to date, spanning the sonic landscape from the late 1980’s to the present day. The two discs pack as much as you would expect and more, with forward­thinking choices that are instantly gratifying but largely unrecognisable. Disc one is one for the serious music lovers and puts Mr Richard’s wealth of experience and vast influences into the spotlight, whilst disc two takes a darker ride through the late night abyss. The collection heeds hard to find rare gems such as Backroom Productions, Black Rascals, 2House and Kenny Larkin, as well as modern vinyl only treats by Mike Ozone, Ruf Dug, STL and Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold. It also features tracks from Craig’s own ground­breaking label: The Nothing Special, with tracks from Trevino, Calibre, dBridge, Keith Tenniswood, Billy Nasty and Craig himself.

Blu Mar Ten announce new album ‘Famous Lost Words’

Blu Mar Ten  new album 'Famous Lost Words'Blu Mar Ten
‘Famous Lost Words’
(Blu Mar Ten Music)
Release Date: 18th November 2013

 

After establishing their own label, Blu Mar Ten Music, in 2009 and releasing the critically acclaimed albums ‘Natural History’ (2009) and ‘Love is the Devil’ (2011), winter 2013 sees the arrival of Blu Mar Ten’s highly anticipated new LP, ‘Famous Lost Words’.

Featuring 13 tracks of pure and unapologetic drum & bass, the album inhabits a similar territory to the previous two; full of emotional movements fused with tough beats that reinforce BMT’s position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.

 Brooding dancefloor destroyers like ‘Ariel’ and ‘Holding Pattern’ deliver rugged basslines and harsh drums, contrasting beautifully with the more fragile and otherworldly soundscapes of title track ‘Famous Lost Words’ and ‘Night Shift’. ‘Big Shots’ and ‘Motor City’ serve up frantic layers of euphoria while ‘Remembered Her Wrong’ wanders off into the bizarrely abstract.
‘Famous Lost Words” 71 minute duration also features an impressive roster of collaborators. ‘Thin Air’ layers the alluring vocals of Robert Manos atop a bed of whirling synths and rolling bass. Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Agné Genyté injects a dose of soothing lullaby tones into ‘Somewhere’, ‘Break It All Apart’ and ‘In Your Eyes’, while long-time friend and label mate Seba makes an appearance on ‘Hunter’ whose growling bass and Bladerunner synths play to the strengths of both artists.

 

 

Accompanying the ‘Famous Lost Words’ project is a set of live dates around Europe. Beginning at pivotal label/club night, Hospitality in Bristol, the mini tour then travels to the likes of Russia, Germany, Ireland, Finland and BMT’s native London.

 

Track List:
1. Somewhere (feat. Agné Genyté)
2. Hunter (feat. Seba)
3. Big Shots
4. Famous Lost Words
5. Thin Air (feat. Robert Manos & Yosebu)
6. Holding Pattern
7. Break It All Apart (feat. Agné Genyté)
8. Half The Sky
9. Remembered Her Wrong
10. Motor City
11. Night Shift
12. Ariel
13. In your eyes (feat. Agné Genyté)

AMIT ‘Human Warfare / No Mercy’ + Machinedrum rmx (AMAR) 29th July

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

AMAR001_A_SIDE_RGB_9283dbFollowing critically acclaimed releases on Metalheadz,Commercial SuicideExit Records and most recently Tempa, AMIT’s ‘Human Warfare’ and ‘No Mercy’ are the first tracks to be released on his new AMAR imprint, setting the tone as to what you should expect from the new label.

The 12” kicks off with ‘Human Warfare’, a dark and brooding piece acting as the soundtrack to a foot soldiers mind – programmed to kill at any cost without any memory or responsibility of the act itself. AMIT has dug deep into his pool of influences and techniques – half-time metallic drums, paranoid vocals, sinister backdrops and thunderous low sonics drench the track. With a variety of support from DJ’s such as MachinedrumGoldie,dBridgeDoc ScottYoungstaRandallKrust and Loxy, this track is likely to be heard at any night regardless of genre.

‘No Mercy’ was inspired by historical colonial methods of ‘divide and rule’, hence the title. Featuring the spaced out vocals of tag team partner Rani, AMIT is up to his usual dub antics on this one by deploying tribal grooves, staggered organ hits and a thunderous sub. Support for this track has come from Mala,YoungstaDistanceVivekJ:KenzoKryptic Minds and a host of other 140bpm stalwarts.

Machinedrum jumps on remix duties for a special digital only version of ‘Human Warfare’, flipping the rigid feel of the original into a shuffling affair. Drum breaks and ambience float in and out of the music, keeping a sense of flippancy and unrest that propels the track.

Tracklisting:

12” Vinyl:
A Human Warfare
AA No Mercy

Digital:

Machinedrum ‘Clissold VIP’ Astrophonica(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2013 by E.N.

Machinedrum 'Clissold VIP' AstrophonicaJungle Juke? Astrophonica conclude their three-part, experimental VIP series by inviting Machinedrum to give his own take on the label’s search for a new sound.
Clissold VIP sees the now Berlin-based, globe-trotting producer add his unique touch to Fracture & Neptune‘s original by taking the track into frenetic yet hazy vibes. As with the two previous VIPs, this release pushes at the seams of established genres to deliver a musical experience that’s truly boundary breaking.
Machinedrum’s own experiments with tempos and genres in recent years have put him at the forefront of a small group of producers who are pushing things forward, alongside the likes of Om Unit who featured on the second VIP.
As with the previous two releases, Machinedrum’s Clissold VIP will be available as a limited edition of 300 x 10″ one-sided vinyl with 2 colour screen printed and hand numbered sleeves.
Clissold VIP was exclusively aired on Gilles Peterson’s BBC 6 Music show and has since had support from Om Unit, dBridge and Daedelus.

Alex Smoke presents his new album as Wraetlic

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2012 by E.N.

alex smoke wraetlicAlex Smoke presents Wraetlic.

The old saying goes:‘love hurts’. But more and more we find that life hurts more.
Standing in dynamic tension at the centre of these two abstract forces we rediscover Alex Smoke.
Eight years after he emerged as one of the most sophisticated, deft and musical producers operating in techno he’s returned from an agonized hiatus with his darkest, most complex and haunted work to date.
Adopting the spectral nom-de-guerre of Wraetlic (meaning “Wraith-like” in Anglo Saxon) Smoke has condensed all his pain of existence, the heartache of failed relationships with the hollow and mundane modern pressure to find ‘success’ in order to infiltrate our thoughts with music from another place.

The eponymously titled ‘Wraetlic’ is a descent. Obsessively processed percussion mingles with paranoid and dehumanized drones. It’s warped and claustrophobic; almost subterranean, fighting for air but refusing to break cover.And through the darkness we begin to hear him sing once more, a reminder of the melancholic majesty evident on classics such as ‘I Never Want To See You Again’ – yet here the listeners are plunged into an introspection that traverses frustration, sadness and anger to inhabit a carcass like structure where he is alone with the raw emotions that drive him.
He’s a man that thrives upon this melancholia, as he probes: “I’m fascinated by the sense of separation between ourselves and society,’ explains the usually furtive producer ‘and a sense that it doesn’t represent us … there’s also a more personal strand to do with my own relationships.”

Tracks such as ‘Refrain’ seethe with frustration at our inability as a society to improve collectively, despite elevating levels of education. It even ironically samples G.W. Bush’s words that called for peace as the US attached Iraq on March 20th, 2003:“I’m looking around and we have everything’ he sighs ‘just so much. But we’re lacking some basic things in our modern society which means we’re never going to be satisfied no matter how high our standard of living is. Money is the only thing our culture puts much value on. “

12.Scunner [Jon Convex's Deconstructed Mix]
13.Better The Devil [DBridge's Advocate Mix]
14.Rats [SCB Edit]

And whilst he rages at the riches in society,‘Wraetlic’ is a record that was defined by absence.Aside from the three albums (Incommunicado, Paranolia and Lux) there was the relentless remixing for Steve Reich, Depeche Mode, Junior Boys, Funk D’Void and Jay Haze as well as a global audience to sate. On top of this he’d pushed on to score classical pieces for The Scottish Ensemble including a dark rendition of ‘Faust’.

But in delivering all this work Smoke paid a heavy physical price that would bizarrely inform this new work: “The last couple of years have been annoyingly marred by health issues’ he confesses ‘I couldn’t work nearly as much as I’d normally like. I had composed Faust but had then had a long time not being able to write much, so when I could work again I suddenly felt a new lease of life, a feeling which I hadn’t had since my early days. I think the time away from working probably did me good in hindsight.”

Now we are confronted with Alex Smoke’s most deviant, uncompromising and raw expression yet. Listen to ‘Dearth’ and hear him challenge the listener to confront who they truly are. Or travel through ‘Scunner’ and ‘Anothering’ to find a narrative about escape and the pent up realities of relationships.“Wraetlic’ is Smoke’s most fleshy, seething and livid work ever. Its life served on an uncomfortable bed that screams nocturnal pathways, yet has its eyes angled at the far off stars.
Listen hard; you may hear your own neurotic murmurs and twitches closer than you think.
