Pole Folder & Simon Latham announce “Human EP” with GusGus Remix(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2014 by E.N.

Pole Folder & Simon Latham announce Human EP with GusGus RemixNext up on the Electronical Reeds, recently elected 3rd best label in Belgium at Redbull Awards 2013, is Pole Folder, one of the foremost artists in his native Belgium, in association with Simon Latham. They serve up two fantastic tracks that come backed with four equally excellent remixes!

Pole Folder – a tremendous DJ and live performer – runs his own Reworck label, has also released on Global Underground and Bedrock and regularly gets support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha, Laurent Garnier and Daniel Bortz for his great releases. Simon Latham meanwhile, is a Iceland-based dance veteran whose tracks have been used on tons of compilations on Renaissance, and who has released on labels like Silent Shore Records, Armada, Proton, Olaris, Stress and others.

The first original called The Bitter Memory, is an enigmatic track with a really heart tugging male vocal floating in wide-open spaces. Rubbery drums play and drive the thing along and main room, sweeping melodies come in to sweep you off your feet. The second track, U.S.E. was previously released last autumn on the Y3ARS album. It is a spine tingling bit of magical house with great melodies and tons of atmosphere, as well as a super evocative and neo soul male vocal line that really takes flight. U.S.E. gets plenty of remix treatment.

First to appear is Kompakt’s Icelandic Superstar GusGus alongside T-World for a squelchy tech house reinterpretation that is elegant and uplifting. Next up is Brussels man and label artist, Lex Newton that gets all slick and lively on his classy house re-rub. Another Electronical Reeds artist, Superdrums, comes with his vision of U.S.E. and makes it into a cosmic bit of house funk. Finally, Simon Latham also turns in a solo remix that is even more moody and melodic.

Dancefloor driven cuts and melodic grooves is clearly the right definition for Electronical Reeds’ style and the present release backs it up. A solid package clearly stating a defined but open-minded artistic direction that appeals to a larger audience than most releases one gets to hear these days.

This release kicks off with Nice View; a cross genre hard to pin gem that you can drop peak time or early night with killer results. Chris follows up with a B-Side track called The Present M. We fell in love with this deep quirky house track at first listen. A truly unique journey that takes you far away while still being dance floor ready.

We’re extremely excited to have to two accomplished and amazing producers on remix duties.

To start things off we have Omid 16b who has reworked Nice View into two absolute masterpieces. Over at L-System we’re a huge fan of Omid 16b’s sound and sought him out for the unique sound he’s famous for world over. Omid’s first mix is filled with upbeat melodic synths mixed in with driving classic drum machine sounds that mix with any house genre. His remix reprise is the ultimate set starter that takes a turn to the dark side halfway through.

Next we have Martin Roth remixing Nice View into a deep house track that strongly carries his signature sound. Slow driving synths and pads drive this unique dance track that keeps the vibe up while still delivering the underground smoothness that Martin knows best.

Tokyo, Japan: 2013. In a city where time and space can easily become uncontrollable factors, the underground electronic music scene has built its own culture and society for more than 30 years. Taking and incorporating influences from all over the world, the creations born from Japan’s underground continue to stay highly unique and maintain a clear sense of being deeply Japanese.

The author of three acclaimed 12” releases over the past three years on the 7even Recordings imprint, his rare output has always impressed by the uniqueness of his sound and the high level of studio technique in his production. ENA has been tying the old to the new by blending diverse influences such as Dub music, early Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Techno and Abstract Hip Hop. He’s gained support from major players such as Surgeon, Laurent Garnier, A Made Up Sound, Pangaea, Goth-Trad and Peverelist to name but a few.

This first full-length album, “Bilateral”, is a visionary piece of music emerging from the studio of a very unique creator. Uncompromising, the 12 original tracks which compose “Bilateral” are the soundtrack of today’s Tokyo underground, the sound of a city of light and obscurity, stability and disequilibrium, stagnancy and full speed, the past, the present and the future. Press play and enter the world of one of the most creative composers of this generation.

Mario Basanov – Journey,November 26th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2012 by E.N.

- Mario Basanov is one of the main dance icons of Lithuania and gaining big status on the Worldwide circuit for his remixes, solo and coproductions

- ‘Changed’ single (with Vidis) was one of the biggest records of 2011 with close to a million hits on youtube, relicensed for 3 different labels and not leaving MTV Baltic Top 20 for 18 months  

- He won Producer of the Year in the Music Awards 2011 and is in demand from local pop stars for his production

- Consistent support from across musical styles counting fans from Gilles Peterson, Pete Tong,  Jazzanova, Atjazz, Laurent Garnier, Danny Daze, Soul Clap  

- His music has been released on Future Classic, Under The Shade and Needwant

 – ‘Journey’ features collaborations with his past vocalists Jazzu and Stee Downes plus his biggest tracks reworked into new versions.

Mario Basanov comes from a different angle to most dance music producers. He’s one of a handful from Lithuania to make waves globally and has over a decade of experience despite still being in his twenties.

But his versatility is what really sets him apart. His productions have a pop sheen to them sounding as if they’ve been touched by superstars. His‘Changed’ single from 2011 made with Vidis has almost a million views on YouTube and was relicensed to three different labels (watchwww.youtube.com/watch?v=D2Enywte7HM) a prime example of his ability to turn dance music on its head and create long lasting hits in an usually disposable genre.

The Nile Rodgers of dance music, he is constantly approached by local pop heroes at home to produce their records. Perhaps it’s that he’s not afraid to make slow music, often less than 100bpm. Or perhaps it’s his adept use of vocals, taking classic voices such as Ernesto’s in ‘Changed’and embedding them with expansive melodies and crisp rhythmic arrangements.

In Basanov’s 16 track ‘Journey’ he exposes new and exclusive records featuring the vocalists that brought him to the limelight, such as Jazzutaking root in the elegant atmospheres of ‘Under Your Feet’ and Stee Downes who features on the more buoyant ‘Say What You Want’,shooting punches through the vocal lines and spinning magic within its synth basslines.

Basanov gathers many talented musicians for his long awaited polished full length, from the percussive master Rahjwanti for the graceful ‘Slip Away’to the feisty Miss Bee and sultry Athena Radford for the anthemic ‘Like A Child’.

These fresh offerings sit alongside revisits some of his biggest tracks to date with rare versions made especially for the album such as ‘We Are Child of Love’ and ‘Lonely Days’, the latter closing the album in epic style, parallel to a modern day Prince ballad.

His consistent and quality production techniques express a style that is both elegant yet enigmatic. His music sits as comfortably in the worlds of deep house, broken beat, nu jazz, disco, as well as the darker territory of acid and electro.

Rudimental “Feel The Love” ft. john Newman – released 28th May 2012

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2012 by E.N.


Artist: Rudimental
Title: “Feel The Love” ft John Newman
Label: Asylum Records / Black Butter
Release date: May 28th 2012
Format: Digital Download Single

Having premiered as the Hottest Record in the World on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show last week and with subsequent plays from Mistajam – who declared in a Certified Banger – and Annie Mac over the weekend, Rudimental are pleased to announce their debut major label single on Asylum Records in association with the cutting edge indie Black Butter.
‘Feel the Love’ is set for release on May 28th, a maximalist Drum’n’bass anthem full of organic instrumentation including a soaring trumpet break and a magnificent, unrestrained vocal courtesy of John Newman; the song is sure to be a summer smash.
‘Feel The Love’ comes hot on the heels of Rudimental’s underground smash ‘Spoons’ which has already amassed over 50 specialist plays on Radio 1, Kiss, 1Xtra, XFM and Rinse with support from The XX, Laurent Garnier and the tastemaker blogs.
This hot Hackney based quartet is made up of musicians Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon (DJ Locksmith), who navigate through genres effortlessly. As Piers explains “we’re all into different styles of music. When I was young I was listening to blues, and I was listening to Dizzee and grime”, others in the group were into Garage and Hip Ho p, or old Soul and 2 Step. “The unifying thing is the soul influence and the bass influence” says Amir, “those two things are always there” alongside the real instrumentation: real bass, real Hammond, real brass, real strings and in the case of ‘Spoons’, real spoons. Not only do Rudimental handle all the instrumentation and production side of their music, they also write the lyrics for their guest vocal talent.
Immersed in music from an early age and always finding a way to forge a career in it, be that on pirate radio (Leon and Piers), producing garage or hip hop with likes of Plan B (Amir) or hanging out at his
now prolific Stoke Newington School – the place that Professor Green and Labrinth sprung from (Kesi) – Rudimental have music in their blood.
Alongside ‘Spoons’, a stunning, soulful house duet between vocalists MNEK and Syron, Rudimental have recently remixed Ed Sheeran’s ‘Drunk’, Benny Banks and Wretch 32 and are currently working on a remix for Labrinth’s forthcoming single.
‘Feel the Love’ is backed by a wealth of remixes from producers including UKF favourites Fred V & Grafix and Cutline and house dons Scuba and Dusky who all turn in mammoth mixes.
As might be expected of men with such a deep knowledge of the dance genres that are interwoven into London’s cultural and musical history, Rudimental also feel a strong connection to their communities and have seen how music can be an outlet for kids from troubled backgrounds. All of Rudimental have all worked as mentors for teens, an experience that was mirrored when they travelled to Philadelphia to film the soon to be released video for ‘Feel the Love’. The film features real kids as it documents an unexpected lifestyle in one of the city’s roughest neighbourhoods.
Rudimental have announced a string of touring dates, taking in the likes of Fabric and The Arches as well as festival appearances at Creamfields, SW4 and Outlook – Rudimental’s 2012 takeover is in
place.
