Disciples – Poison Arrow(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by E.N.

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.

Voyeur – Blame It On The Youth EP(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by E.N.

Leeds based duo Voyeur spent early 2012 carving their name on the remix circuit, with reworks for Bombay Bicycle Club and Santigold gaining tastemaker support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Rob da Bank, Dummy and XLR8R.

Their first original output, due on 26th November via Kerri Chandler’s new MadTech imprint, is the sultry ‘Blame It On The Youth’, an 8-minute lo-slung epic. Perfect listening for the impending autumnal evenings, it fuses jazz chords and emotive vocal yelps with a genuine sonic weight, showcasing somewhat of a detachment from their previous Balearic offerings.

On the flipside comes an edit from Kerri Chandler himself, who, upon hearing the track, insisted on adding his own interpretation to the package. Retaining much of the original, Kerri displays a new side to his productions and creates a dance-floor ready cut that will surely become a staple in his future sets. The tribal bounce of ‘Get Up’ completes the digital bundle.

Having already supported Disclosure at their London EP launch and appeared at Dimensions and Gottwood festivals over the summer, Voyeur will support Submotion Orchestra this month, before playing their own EP launch party at The Nest in London on 10th November, featuring a special line-up curated by themselves which will be announced over the coming weeks. Following this, the duo will appear on the seminal Boiler Room on 22nd November.

Introducing: Unicorn Kid -“Dream Catcher” MP3+Video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2010 by E.N.

Introducing: Pet Shop Boys and Gorillaz approved Unicorn Kid!

Debuts “Dream Catcher” Mp3

“…it’s basically music you’d fight ninjas to in Second Life, assuming there are ninjas in Second Life. Or Timbaland if he took coding classes with Zomby. Whatever it is, it exists, it’s here, it’s great, and it will make you want to put Hackers at the top of your Netflix cue.”

“Relying on the sounds of vintage computer games mixed with contemporary production stylings, the electro prodigy puts out an eccentric sound that is part dub step, part pop and and part dance music. Listen to “Dream Catcher,” his latest brew that is pretty darn genius.”
Arjan Writes

Still just a teenager and already with remixes for Gorillaz and Pet Shop Boys under his belt, Unicorn Kid can also name Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and BBC-1’s Rob Da Bank as fans. Re-releasing his first single, “Dream Catcher” on Ultra Records, Unicorn Kid gives a chiptune take on bass heavy dubstep. “Dream Catcher” feels breezy and surprisingly organic, a digital departure from dubstep’s current heavier counterparts.

Matching the organic feel to the instrumental “Dream Catcher”, the video takes footage of Unicorn Kid enjoying a waterfront field on a sunny, vibrant day, and digitally modifies it, adding a mesmerizing kaleidoscopic effect. Cuts of foliage and water, inverted images of Unicorn Kid in an animal hat, and dancers are spliced together seamlessly, making it difficult to peel your eyes away from the screen.
This Edinburgh native has shared the stage with Kissy SelloutHadouken!, as well as the Pet Shop Boys, at massive festivals such as Bestival, SXSW, and Underage Festival. The future for Unicorn Kid holds more tour dates, along with the release of his next track, “Wild Life”.

Released on 12″ Vinyl on 3rd May 2010.
Following the critically acclaimed EP on his own Hessle Audio imprint David Kennedy a.k.a Ramadanman touches down on Hemlock in equally ground breaking style. a. Glut sees Ramadanman strike out with a new palette of unexplored influences. Ghosts of 80s electro, ghetto-tech and jungle are delivered with booming 808s subs ensuring maximum vibration in the dance. aa. Tempest has become a tribal rave anthem, furiously smashing out hypnotic drums and sirens that ride upon elephantine sub bass. Arguably Ramadanmans most relentless and enchanting work to date. Both tunes getting big support from Loefah, Ben UFO, Joe Nice , Gilles Peterson, Rob Da Bank, Mary Anne Hobbs
