Jaust - We Need A New Life feat James Dean Wells LOW-RES
Artist: Jaust
Title: We Need a New Life feat James Dean Wells
Label: human label
Catalog: HUM-08
Format: Digital
Date: 11.24.14

Following his lorded debut single Feel the Smoke Rise, enigmatic producer Jaust takes the next steps towards his album Definites. Wearing an entirely different set of colours, We Need a New Life sees Jaust channel his passion for indie and 80’s synth pop. Featuring the vocal talents of James Dean Wells from he Gay Blades, this track will no doubt be finding itself fans in many corners.

Heading up the remixes, Monkeytown Records multi-instrumentalist Alex Banks rewires We Need a New Life in his own unmistakeable style. Taking influence from kaleidoscopic electronica and the LA beats movement in equal parts, his remix sits in no genre camp and is all the better for it.

Portuguese producer Xinobi runs with the remix baton for a 4/4 makeover. As the lead vocals take front and centre, hooking in from the get go before an infectious bass synth jumps into play. This one will take the doors off a disconcerting disco.

Mainlining noise and electro, Shengi makes We Need a New Life her own. Constructing a remix that retains the heart of the original, but opens the curtain to new landscape.

Completing the journey, pushing the limits as he did with Feel the Smoke Rise, Jaust himself grapples We Need a New Life. A cut up style that owes as much to Soulwax as it does to Aphex Twin, try putting this in a box and you will be hard pressed. Jaust is a producer writing his own rules.

Kiesza -“Sound Of A Woman” out November 17th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2014 by E.N.

Sound of a woman KIESZAToday Canadian singer and multi- instrumentalist, Kiesza announces the release of her debut album, Sound Of A Woman on Lokal Legend/Virgin EMI out November 17th, proceeded by 3rdsingle No Enemiesz out November 10th.

Sound Of A Woman takes you on a journey through life, love, music and time. Inspired by New York dance clubs of the ‘90s as well as current UK club culture, Sound Of A Woman is an ode to love, a missive to heartbreak as well as a dedication to the dance floor. As a multi-faceted musician, Kiesza experiments with sonic structure and genre patterns; Hip Hop, R&B, UKG and Breakbeat all permeate the record, while some of its key moments come in the form of spine-tingling ballads, the perfect backdrop to underline Kiesza’s incredible vocal. “I think people will be surprised to hear some of the songs on this album. Because of the success of my first two singles, I’m seen perhaps as a House or Dance artist but I’ve been in to grunge, rock, folk groups in the past,” she laughs. “All of those experiences and influences have led me to create this album.”

Produced by Kiesza and long-term collaborator Rami Samir Afuni, the album was recorded in Afuni’s studio in Manhattan, the simplicity of the studio structure evident in the record’s cohesion and intimacy. This is Keisza’s story, sung, written, composed and created by Kiesza.

Sound Of A Woman is as adventurous and unexpected as the twists and turns that led the 25 year-old to where she is today. The Berkley College of Music graduate, capoeira student and classically trained ballerina is also a Queen of the high seas. As a teenager, Kiesza travelled the world with the Navy and trained as a sniper for the Army, before becoming one of today’s most sought-after songwriters, having written for Rihanna and Icona Pop, as well as collaborating with Skrillex and Diplo. A committed artist whose extraordinary ambition is matched only by her unusual clarity of vision and overwhelming talent, this former tall-ship sailor has spent years plotting a course to the epicenter of pop.

Earlier this year, Kiesza released her platinum-selling debut single, Hideaway. The UK No.1 quickly became one of the biggest selling singles of 2014 accumulating over 100million hits on YouTube as well as becoming a smash across the pond and beyond scoring 30 iTunes No.1s worldwide. Second single Giant in My Heart followed suit, scoring a No.5 and cementing Kiesza’s status as one of the most exciting debut artists of the year.

Following sold out shows at and numerous prolific festival appearances including Glastonbury, Wireless and T in the Park, Kiesza announces the following European and UK shows in November.

‘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.
