Dark Room Notes – Elm

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2010 by dk

Released: 2010-10-25

Elm is a bittersweet love song written by the band following a visit to Berlin in October 2009 and is an ode to that city in the autumn time and to an imaginary couple that might have met there at the turn of the century. It’s whirling rhythms reflecting the turn of the carousel and the carefree twirling of a parasol.

The ‘Lights Tech Noir Mix’ remix that will be released alongside was produced by Irish remixer Neil Dixon.

The third track that is part of the single is Shake Shake My Ceiling. The video for Shake Shake My Ceiling was directed by Rory Bresnihan who won the prize for best short film for ‘The Man Inside’ at this year’s Kinsale Film Festival. Rory is currently working with Lars Von Trier on a feature film. The idea for the video was to catch people’s reactions to a man dancing on the streets of Berlin and was filmed over a 24 hour period.

Elm and Shake Shake My Ceiling are taken from Dark Room Note’s album “We Love You Dark ! Matter” that was released on earlier in 2010.

Phil Kieran – Empty Vessels *Out Now* on (Electric Deluxe)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on October 22, 2010 by dk

“Empty Vessels EP” is Phil Kieran’s debut on Electric Deluxe.

Listen at soundcloud
For more than a decade now, Phil Kieran and Speedy J have deeply respected each others music, and shared profound knowledge and interest in pushing music with technology.

When hearing “Empty Vessels” for the first time, Speedy J’s attention was immediately sparked.

The A Side “Empty Vessels” starts off the EP with a stripped down, swinging Groove. Custom subtle, tripped out sounds flavored from Industrial, House, and just straight alien and disturbing origin are shifting, moving and melting this unique techno hybrid.

The B Side “Empty Vessels (Gary Beck remix)” is dedicated to the dance floor in a more traditional form, while far from following a template. A cool groove, dusty bass drum and huge rim shots create a framework for noise build-ups and Gary’s own treatment of the already deranged original sounds. In all weirdness, the mix leaves no doubt about direction: it grabs you with brute uplifting energy and sends you straight to rave heaven.

The Digital version is accompanied by 3 Tools, as customary to any Electric Deluxe release:

Tool 1 by Phil Kieran “Empty Vessels” is opening Phil’s magic tricks box, putting his custom, weirdly vintage sounds at your fingertips to add lot’s of flavor to any mix. Tool 1 by Gary Beck “Empy Vessels Remix Tool 1” is instant rave euphoria. This takes care of all your fat bottom bassdrum and high frequency buildup needs. Tool 2 by gary Beck “Empty Vessels Remix Tool 2” gives you the middle and high frequency bite of his remix, with the distinct vintage feel of the original.

The inspiration behind “Empty Vessels” was to create an “empty” but stark and atmospheric piece of music, living from the space and gaps between the frequenci- es and leaving room for imagination, for breath, for soul.

5.Pavle Vasiljevic f.Aneta Kacurkova – Sometimes   (Artone Remix)

Artefact Records proudly presents the newest release “Sometimes” EP by Pavle Vasiljevic & Aneta Kachurkova.
Call us sentimental, but this takes us to a different level, into soft, sensual, mellow deepness.

Melancholy, loneliness, desire.
Sometimes they sneak in, through the raindrops on the windows, on the empty streets, with the sound of the sad piano beautifully played by Pavle; filled only by the fallen leaves, gracefully captured by the velvety vocal of Ana. “Sometimes” is definitely a stylish and elegant track with beautiful keys and chords vividly painting smooth melodic sound scapes.

This package comes with an excellent set of remixes that are creating different hues of the main theme, whether they are laid down with the empowering beats or dubbing baselines.

Denny Trajkov is inspired by inner space travel, once again showing his superb talent to deliver monster mixes with innovative sound-design.
Dejan Dex is getting deep & nasty – ready to spark the dance floor in his recognizable funky vibe.
Their remixes are typical of their usual high quality productions and turns this gem into a dance floor rocker.
Artone explores the darker side of the track, diving into ocean of emotions with his deep tones, smooth chords & pads, delicately fading in & out.

Just to make sure you have no excuse not to play it, it comes complete with back 2 back remix, dub versions, and vocal remixes to suit any mood and any occasion.

ARTIST: Derek Marin
TITLE: Outside In EP
LABEL: Dialtone
RELEASE DATE: October 27th, 2010

Derek Marin is the newest signing on Dialtone. This new EP called Outside In has 3 strong originals and an edit from Dialtone owners Funk Shuei. Derek has already had a spate of successful releases on Thoughtless, Plastic City and Subtrak. “Outside In” is a minimal house track fueled with drums. “Scratch Off Ticket” has an amazing techno-ish vibe with his particular blend all over the place. “Unbirthday Dub”, like the name says, is a deep, dubby original perfect for those early sets or after-hours. And last but not least, “Outside In (Funk Shuei Edit)” is minimal house in all its splendor with a techy groove and their cut out vocals trademark. Hope you like it as much as we do!
