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.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2013 by E.N.

Chris-Gavin---Nice-ViewL-System is proud to announce it’s third release Nice View by DJ, producer and all around ladies man, Chris Gavin! Chris hails from Marseille, France and is often supported by DJs such as Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo and more. 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.

ENA – Bilateral LP is released on @7evenrecordings on Ltd Digipack CD on 17th April 2013.
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. ENA has been a multi-instrumentalist artist, studio engineer, DJ and producer for more than a decade now. 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.
