Quite possibly the Southern Hemisphere’s best kept secret, Clubfeet are ready to announce their arrival to the world. The holy union of five sons of Melbourne and Cape Town (via the French Riviera), together, they create dreamy, melancholic indie-pop, that sounds just as inspiring on a club floor on a Saturday night as it does on a lazy Sunday by the sea side.
Having picked up a 7.7 on Pitchfork and all sorts of blog/tastemaker love (see Spin, Filter, Dazed, RCRDLBL, Discobelle etc) for their Gold On Gold long player (licensed by hip NYC club label Plant Music) the band have embarked on the Gold On Gold video project – www.goldongold.tv .
In collaboration with acclaimed Sydney fashion videographer Alex Goddard together they curate and plot a model studded (and at times NSFW) audio-visual path through their music, along the road creating a new way for people to experience the album. For Last Words, Alex worked with graphic designer Margaux Fraisse who produced all the typographic elements.
‘Last Words’ is the next single from the project and features remixes from legendary hedonist and French disco icon Dimitri From Paris, indie club producer Andrew Maury, aka RAC and London’s emerging nu-disco champions The C90s..

BED100R – Eric Prydz & Dosem Remixes

(Bedrock) Bed100R
Release: 21.11.11

Guy J & Henry Saiz – Meridian ( PRYDA Remix)

Henry Saiz – ‘La Marea’ ( Dosem Remix)

John Digweed’s Bedrock Records recently celebrated a milestone 100th single release in superb style with two of the best tracks that you could hear this year, from two of the most creative young producers in the electronic dance scene– Guy J and Henry Saiz. Now it’s time to continue the celebrations with two of the best remixes you will hear this year from the mighty Eric Prydz and one of the hottest rising stars of 2011, Spain’s Dosem.
In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve, bringing forward new and exciting talent, is something that should be applauded. A mark of the global respect and love that Bedrock has steadily gained through years of releasing quality dance music that rides the waves of trends and fashions is the fact that the Bed100R remixes received over 20,000 listens on Soundcloud by word of mouth before they were even announced! So, it is hardly surprising that this remix package is currently one of the most highly anticipated releases of the moment and quite rightly so, since it features two absolutely stunning reworks of the amazing original tracks.
Sweden’s superstar Eric Prydz, in his Pryda guise, proves he is worthy of the acclaim and respect he receives worldwide as he takes apart and re-designs Guy J and Henry Saiz’s joyously beautiful “Meridian”, creating a truly astonishing anthemic remix that will surely prove to be one of the musical highlights of 2011?
Catalan producer and DJ Marc Dosem is unquestionably one of the hottest rising stars in the electronic dance scene. His bold debut album, “Parallel” (Sino), was released to much critical acclaim in the summer of 2011, further cementing growing respect, having already unleashed massive tunes such as “Silent Drop” and “Beach Kisses”. His unrivalled ability to harness glistening melodies, taking listeners on a trip through wondrous realms of emotion, make Dosem the ideal candidate to rework his fellow countryman’s extraordinary “La Marea” and his mind-blowing remix is one of the best you will hear for a long time to come.
Once again, its hats off the Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with these exceptional remixes, the mark of a truly exceptional independent dance music label.
