Digitaria – ‘Night Falls Again’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2014 by E.N.

Digitaria - 'Night Falls Again'After producing two of the biggest singles on Hot Creations, Digitaria unleash a full­-length studio album, ‘Night Falls Again’ on Jamie Jones’ admired imprint.

The duo from Brazil live by the philosophy that electronic music should have no boundaries, creativity and feelings are the only things that matter. Their free­spirited natures and Latin American passion is funnelled into twelve distinct tracks on ‘Night Falls Again’, an album of pure electronic gold.

There’s no denying this is music made for the dancefloor. However it incorporates an aura of mysticism, a romance in its vocals and a melancholy in its soaring synths. Tracks such as ‘Favourite Addiction’ featuring Clarian and the solid grooves of ‘1000 Friends’ share an unbridled energy and are cleverly framed by seductive vocals flaunting lyrics that spark with the shimmer of pop but are grounded by the power of raw electro. This is music that tells a story, one that demands to be heard.

Klangkarussell-imageKlangkarussell featuring Will Heard’s ‘Sonnentanz (The Sun Don’t Shine)’ is the deep house anthem that bears all the hallmarks of becoming one of this summer’s biggest dance hits.

Originally an instrumental that first bubbled away on the underground late last year before becoming a No.1 singles chart and radio airplay hit across Europe, ‘Sonnentanz’ is the work of Austrian house duo, Klangkarussell aka Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held. To date, the instrumental has amassed over 25 million views on YouTube.

‘Sonnentanz’ now features a killer vocal from 21 year old British rising star, Will Heard, the hotly tipped singer/musician gaining recognition for his blend of jazz, folk and soul. Having taken time out to travel through Cuba, Argentina and Brazil, Will returned to the UK last year and signed a publishing deal with Trevor Horn’s Perfect Song. He’s recently been in the studio writing and recording new material with the likes of Billy Mann (P!nk John Legend), Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, Ellie Goulding), Baby Daddy (Scissor Sisters, Kylie Minogue), and Future Cut (Lily Allen, Rizzle Kicks).

The vocal version will be released on 4th August via Island Records.
Remixes come from Jakwob, Ben Pearce and more

TEED-GETLOST-Totally Enormous Extinct DinosaursCrosstown Rebels infamous Get Lost series returns with a new episode delving into the more obscure and rare choices from the award-winning crossover dance act and old friend of the label, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Get Lost VI is a double disc compilation full of rarities and cutting edge house and techno carefully chosen and collated by TEED aka Orlando Higginbottom, including a new exclusive track made by him together with Eats Everything that will be released as a single on the label.

Crosstown Rebels’ seminal Get Lost series has previously featured quirky artists and musical hedonists Jamie Jones, Acid Pauli, Dinky and the label head Damian Lazarus. Each episode invites the artist to share new insights into their musical personality and indulge in their more distinctive and eccentric choices. Get Lost is also a renowned series of global events. “I couldn´t think of a better home for my first dj comp mix or whatever they´re called, Get Lost is a brilliant series with an intriguing past (and future). I´m very grateful to Damian and Crosstown Rebels for the opportunity, and excited for people to hear it,” comments TEED.

The eclectic first disc showcases the likes of Gold Panda, LFO and rare solo work from Art Department’s Kenny Glasgow as well as subtle additions such as a fascinating monologue from the notorious psychedelic scholarTerence McKenna. Whilst disc two returns to the dancefloor driven that TEED has become infamous for including a huge Breach remix of Jamie JonesAme rework of Tiga and heavyweight meeting of Subb-an & Tom Trago featuring Seth Troxler. The culmination of both hours makes for a timeless asset of electronic mastery available on CD, on vinyl and digitally.crosstown

“The Get Lost album project is a very special one for me and demands the most forward thinking artists to take on. TEED proved with his debut album that he is an electronic visionary and now he shows us the inside of his mind as a DJ – we all need to take note at this double album of brilliance.” Damian Lazarus

CRMCD022 RebelRave3_CoverhighresAs Crosstown Rebels reach a decade of existence they look back with pride on one of their most prolific years to date with the third episode of their treasured Rebel Rave series. This three disc compendium of their yield from 2012 walks back together through a year which saw them launch a mystical festival, Day Zero, and reconnect with classic artists from the label’s history such as Mathew Jonson, Jamie Jones, Tiga & Dinky as well as typically introducing a sea of new faces such asFrancesca LombardoAmiraliFur Coat and Aidan Lavelle.

The third disc is a nostalgic journey on the whole label’s history mixed together by rising star, Subb-an. Named as DJ Magazines ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ in their 2011 end of year awards, Subb-an’s prodigious studio talents have seen him in demand for remixes of mainstream artists such as Jamie Woon, Lana Del Ray, Noir & Haze and Hollis P Monroe over recent months. An instigator of the infamous Below events in Birmingham and co-owner of One Records alongside Adam Shelton, Subb-an has gradually become cherished worldwide as a tastemaker and musical innovator.

His mix exudes a flair for winning over the dancefloor with graceful stitching and vivacious grooves. He ducks and dives taking a tripped out mood through mind-expanding choices such as Gavin Herlihy’s‘Witching Hour’ and Loco Dice’s remix of Riz MC’s‘Radar’ before steering back to driving into the midst of the night with glorious choices such as D’Julz’s edit of Solomun’s anthemic Rebellion release ‘Daddy’s Jam’ and Subb-an’s own‘Misleading’. His peers Jamie Jones, Francesca Lombardo and Amirali also offer highlights to his seamless selection, with Amirali’s ‘Whisper’ adding an epic and graceful close to his episode.

Subb-an will be a main artist featuring on the colossal 10 years of Crosstown Rebel Rave tour in 2013, taking in five continents and eighteen countries alongside the label founder and flagship artist, Damian Lazarus. This global journey will bear fruit to another torrent of mind tripping, off-the-grid events driven by their tight-knit Rebel family of artists.

Damian Lazarus -Day Zero Sound Of The Mayan Spirit

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 5, 2012 by E.N.

  • - Assembling thirteen exclusive unheard tracks made for this special release for Crosstown Rebels
  • - Marks the debut Day Zero festival happening in Mexico on the special Mayan calendar prophetic date 21st December 2012
  • - Day Zero features the label’s past, present and future artists such as Jay HazeAcid Pauli. Mathew Jonson, Fur Coat & more

Damian Lazarus, the Crosstown Rebels spearhead infamous his idiosyncratic nature embarks on a daring new project with Day Zero. On 20th – 21st  December 2012 he will stage a festival in sun-soaked Playa del Carmen, Mexico that will celebrate the momentous end of this world cycle, as decreed by the ancient Mayan civilisation.

To commemorate this enigmatic event he asked thirteen artists to create a new track for a special Day Zero compilation. His peers and comrades stepped up to the challenge with Rebel’s artist past, present and future contributing to this momentous collection compiled by Damian Lazarus.

Pier Bucci opens with the eerie and captivating ‘Mayas’ full of his Latin-American spirit. He was introduced to the music world by Crosstown, releasing his first two albums on the label. Next up, Quenum shares his‘Prophecy’ and Mathew Johnson returns to the label with the driving pulses of ‘In Search Of A New Planet With Oxygen’. Johnson delivered a huge remix early in the label’s history from Hiem ‘She’s The One’ and is a pioneer of the underground house movement.

Listen closely to the messages hidden in the knocking drums and trembling tones of ‘Jeel, k´eex’ from Mexican native Metrika. Crosstown’s newest first lady Francesca Lombardo’s contribution ‘Cosmic Dancer’ swells with femininity and allure while Fur Coat, who concocted the last artist album for CR, explain a little more about the significant date in their cut ‘Greed, Insanity’.

Fosky & Bog and the newcomer to the label Jay Haze both contribute epic dancefloor monsters to the collection. Haze is boss of legendary techno imprint Contexterrior and has been living in South America of late, fascinated by its mystical pull.

Supernatural cuts from Eduardo Castillo featuring his baritone opera trained voice and the Israeli Navid Izadi ft KMLN align up with Mike Shannon for his ‘Sunrise’ and the closing moments from Thugfucker & Shaun Reeves and Acid Pauli & Nu bring this otherworldly assembly to a flourishing close

The Day Zero album arrives on the dawn of the 24 hour event that brings together the best electronic music and entertainment from some of the world’s finest DJs as they embrace a new moment in time. The occasion will mark the end-date of a 25,625-year-long cycle and the final cycle of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. At this moment the galactic alignment will occur, the earth will align with the centre of the Milky Way creating a moment for transformation, renewal and change.

Joining Damian Lazarus at the event are Massive Attack’s Robert “3D” Del Naja, UNKLE’s James Lavelle, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Jamie Jones, Trentemøller, Art Department, and more alongside artists from the album including Metrika (live), Acid Pauli, Francesca Lombardo, Amirali (live), Fur Coat, Thugfucker, and outstanding alternative performances, workshops, games from Mayan Culture, and jaw-dropping 3D visuals and projections.

Hot Creations artists Lee Foss, Miguel Campbell, Robert James, Richy Ahmed,Mark Jenkyns, Digitaria, Funky Fat and wAFF also make appearances alongside new artists such as Lee Webster with the hypnotic soul-infused slice of dirty house, ‘Spend All Her Money’. New Italian artist Bartolemeo delivers the psychedelic slow breaks of ‘Jean Is Not Death’ and Amsterdam’s Tom Ruijg’s drum-tastic ‘Space Frase’ leads to the 80’s inspired ‘Zohra’ by Guilhem and Remi Mazet.

Robert James delivers another battle weapon in the James arsenal with fantastic ‘Body Movement’ whilst wAFF delivers the sublime ‘Sunshine’, a fantastic slice of hedonistic house. Miguel Campbell and Richy Ahmed come together to make the electro-inspired ‘Tell Me Why’, whilst Lee Foss delivers another corker in the form of ‘Life On Mars’. Mark Jenkyns is clearly going from strength to strength with his latest ‘Moola’. Finally there is an exclusive remix  by Funky Fat of Digitaria’s huge ‘Crazy Life’! A veritable feast of beats and  Basslines!
