Enjoying a growing reputation after last summer’s underground hit ‘Remedy’ and their FFRR debut ‘Catwalk’, Disciples continue their momentum with the new single ‘Poison Arrow’ which is out on June 8th as their second release for the resurgent FFRR.
A co-production with underground titan Shadow Child, ‘Poison Arrow’ is house banger with a crossover hook which is propelled by booming, bouncing bassline. Between ‘Poison Arrow’, ‘Remedy’ and ‘Catwalk’, Disciples have already demonstrated an ability to weave between club sounds at will in the space of just three singles.
The original mix of ‘Poison Arrow’ will be packaged with an instrumental version as well as remixes from Redlight and Kilter.
Disciples’ roots were formed when Duvall and Gavin were the only two students on their music tech course who were interested in urban and dance-orientated music. As the duo started to work together, Duvall also started a program to encourage young people to develop their interest in music – one of whom was Luke. But it took another two years and a chance meeting on New Year’s Eve for the trio to commit to a project. They soon found that their individual strengths caused a chemical reaction when mixed together.
Working towards their upcoming debut album, Disciples’ material mixes an eclectic range of references, but shares an infectiously core sound that should infiltrate the mainstream.
Featuring: 34 tracks featuring Flux Pavilion, Seven Lions, Kahn, Skream, Caspa, Rogue, Von D, Torqux, V.I.V.E.K, Youngsta, Dabin, Kromestar, Seven, J:Kenzo and many more.
Everything about dance music is cyclical: from the loops that drive the dancefloor to the ever-changing trends themselves. And as the hype and commercial spotlight surrounding dubstep has died down, the scene is left in the most exciting position it’s been in since its initial crossover explosion in 2009.
The attention seekers have long since left the building. The men with dollar-signed eyeballs have moved on to plunder the next big thing. What’s left is a solid scene of devoted creatives and dedicated fans that were passionate about dubstep long before the hype spiralled and will remain so. As when drum & bass endured its first backlash in the late 90s, dubstep has gone back to its roots and the boys and girls making it more room to breathe and take the genre into exciting new creative realms… Just as they were before the hype ignited.
‘This Is Dubstep 2014’ perfectly captures this unique moment. A much deeper, darker, underground portrait of the genre… This isn’t about the brash brodown, it’s not about hair-raising, bowel-busting drops, it’s not about screaming sonic mid-range savagery. This is about stone cold unrelenting sub-soaked grooves that roll with industrial strength. This is about heaving hypnotic sound design and meditative messiness that can only be found in deep dub dynamics. This is about the foundation vibes and raw roots that inspired a generation of producers over a decade ago.
From Flux Pavilion’s majestic euphoria and slippery synth charms on ‘Gold Love’ through to the reality abandoning groove of Kahn’s remix of Ishan Sound’s ‘Namkha’, ‘This Is Dubstep 2014’ reminds us of what made the genre so special in the first place…
Hipsters might have burnt their Joker albums when they grew their last disco beard. Producers from other genres aren’t so quick to drop into a cheeky half-time dubstep breakdown mid track. But to us here at This Is Dubstep HQ, this is the best thing that’s happened to the scene in a long time.
Galvanised with the GetDarker stamp of approval – bastions of the finest underground dubstep for over 10 years – the scene is in the best place it’s been for a long, long time. This year promises some of the most exciting, boundary-bashing, creative productions the genre has spawned in years.

The track, which is already gaining national airplay in Scandinavia – hence its rush release – is the work of 25-year old Emil Germod, a sound designer/producer/musician from Denmark.
The track, which has been likened to a cross between cult New York producer, Arthur Russell (Dinosaur L) and Royksopp has a definitive Balearic and eighties disco vibe.
A characteristic of Emil Germ’s music is his eclectic mix of his very own deep and high-pitched falsetto voice, guest singers, and disco grooves. He insists ‘I can make even the most cheesy ingredient sound cool and inclusive, even a midi slap bass or the use of hero guitar solos’.
Emil first committed his production sensibilities to minimal techno and then later on punk/rock, but with the EMIL GERM project he has found his place in a more pop and disco-orientated expression, where the key goal is to make catchy music with substance.
The Music For Dreams label specialises in downtempo electronica and Balearic beats and diverse range of chilled electronica releases from artists includingThe Kenneth Bager Experience, Hess is More, Laid Back, Idjut Boys, Cantoma, Lulu Rouge, Grassskirt, DJ Disse, Ganga and more.
Emil Germ ‘Tease And Burn’ is out now on Music For Dreams
Already well-respected for moving dancefloors with their warm funk-infused brand of house music, Suol label headsChopstick & Johnjon broaden the sound palette with their debut album ‘Twelve’, delivering a superbly crafted work that favours song over track and features vocalist Chris James from Ninja Tune signed band Stateless.
Good things take time. For listeners out there who still need convincing, quality time with Chopstick & Johnjon‘s debut album, ‘TWELVE’ is in order. That‘s right. An entire album! Despite being busy these last few years tackling market demands with EPs and remixes, they‘ve finally managed to put out a full-length opus.
And what an album it is! This is an album that lets the ever-changing winds of house music blow right on by, and, through what felt like years in the making, has developed a vibrant tonal language that will continue to tell new stories after stories for years to come. During the final Berlin studio sessions last winter, and it was the only way to get through winter, these arrangements fanned the embers of our “suols” into a healthy glow, helping us survive the cold and grey outside. It‘s an album that focuses on song over track, skillfully pleasing listeners without simply fixating on maximum floor effect.
Besides its ample fruition time, the album‘s second most important ingredient is the voice of Chris James, a London-based singer and musician, who often releases music with his band Stateless on !K7 and Ninja Tune. Rumour has it that a list of preferred candidates for vocal features circulated through the studio when recording began. That list was quickly crumpled up and thrown into the studio‘s trash bin the second James‘ soothing vocals took flight.
Ultimately, the studio recording session proved so intuitive and natural that James‘s heart-warming vocal lines and harmonies are featured on eleven of the twelve album tracks.
