Planas – Breathtaking (D-Bridge & Von D Remix’s)+Preview

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by dk

On March 26th 2012 Exceptional Blue records present the sublime bass music of ‘Breathtaking’, the new single by Planas AKA Toby Davies, which is adorned with the dulcet vocal tones of Ed Thomas. It precedes the release of debut album ‘The Long Game’ later this year.
‘Breathtaking’ contains enough musical mastery to ensure the leap from underground dancefloors to the wider music world. This isn’t surprising when you consider that Toby has either produced, engineered or written songs with Dionne Bromfield, Binky Griptite of The Dap Kings, Tim Hutton (The Prodigy/Groove Armada), Alex Clare (Island) and Kim Burse – Beyonce’s creative director. He also co-produced and recorded vocals for tracks on the recent L-Vis 1990 album, ‘Neon Dreams’.
Steadily building his credentials with rated releases on Ranking (which he co-owns) and Immerse records, his productions plus remixes for the likes of Foreign Beggars, Black Diamond Bay and Screaming Soul have won DJ support from Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1, XFM), Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1/6 Music), Don Letts (BBC 6 Music), Ronnie Herel (BBC 1Xtra), Mr Scruff (Solid Steel), Pearson Sound (Hessle Audio), DJ Nonames (Foreign Beggars) and DJ Q (BBC 1Xtra).
The Planas mix of ‘Finest Hour’ by (Exceptional Blue labelmates) Submotion Orchestra has reached over 150,000 YouTube views.

Toby is an original member of Gentleman’s Dub Club, for whom he writes, produces and plays bass, plus he founded the renowned club night Vagabondz, which is now part of the Outlook Festival in Croatia. He also writes hip hop as Tarqwin Smythe with Ed Thomas of Gentleman’s Dub Club, and in 2009 formed producer duo Seemore Productions.

Fra Nefarious – Crazy Weather

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by dk

Everything about Fra Nefarious screams the 80’s, from his candy-coated keyboards, to his vocals ‘ala’ Bowie and his funky guitar riffs, but Francisco Anthony Del is from present times. Don’t call him new wave revivalist or nu-rave pioneer, he is a sign that is still okay to write dance-rock jams if you make them sound effortless and, well fun. Yes, F-U-N. ‘Crazy Weather‘ is the kind of album you can’t say no to. Each track is essentially a tractor beam, gradually pulling the listener in with a blinding array of daydream melodies and neon-hued hooks. The potential-maximizing production of Fra Nefarious, who wrote every song on the album and performed every instrument on the recording process, are a living proof that this rising star is here to stay. A trilogy of spectacular lead-off singles (“Crazy Weather,” “Leaving on a Meteor,” “Space”) certainly don’t hurt matters, either. Definitely recommended for night owls and anyone who thinks dance music should only exist in super clubs and Ibiza. So Sound Recordings. (By Sean Levisman)

The first thing that’ll strike you about Mr. Nefarious is his expressive singing voice, heavily reminiscent of early David Bowie and Bryan Ferry. And many of the tunes on his new Crazy Weather long player also hark back to those artists’ compositions from the early ’70s — “Leaving on a Meteor” and “Mountain” are pure Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie with a 21st century sheen.

But then listen to numbers like “Space” or “Supernova Star” and you’ll be transported from melancholic glam rock to the uptempo exuberance of Chic-style disco-funk. And the time machine doesn’t stop there, it keeps on going right through the ’80s, especially on the Cure-like cut “Vapor.”

Make no mistake, though, none of its retro references detract from the originality and quality of Fra Nefarious‘s songwriting and gift for catchy vocal hooks.

L’Étranger – Falling For You

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by dk

Falling For You‘ is the debut single from English Producer Ben Thomas akaL’Étranger.
As the title suggests this is a love song, but by no means a conventional one. The beginning quote; from the french writer Albert Camus (where L’Étrangertakes his name from), talks about how love starts as a comedy, progresses into much more of a drama, and ends as a tragedy.
The track reflects this, representing each colour of the wide emotional spectrum that is love.
A smooth funky bass, staccato guitars, modulated synths and piano, are woven together by L’Étranger‘s contemporary, yet complex electro-house Production style. Driven on by bouncing hi-hats and ear perforating kicks and snares.
For Brontë.

Marco Bailey & Tom Hades – Stars & Shines

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by dk

2011 was a big year for Marco Bailey on Bedrock, his critically acclaimed ‘Dragon Man’ (BEDMB01) artist album kicked off 2011 in style, followed by a 4-Track EP (BEDDIGIMB01) in the summer that featured ‘Faint Hope’, ‘Sa Trinxa’, ‘Bom Bang!’ (Deepfunk Remix) and the massive ‘Rubber Band’ (Dave Angel Remix) and he rounded the year off with his ‘Oriental Concept EP’ (BEDDIGI15), which featured an amazing remix from Germany’s Alexander Kowalski.
But, things are about to get bigger in 2012! Never one to rest on his laurels, Marco Bailey has teamed up with fellow Belgian producer Tom Hades to release an absolute monster EP on Bedrock. If there is any justice in the world of electronic music, “Stars & Shines” is destined to become one of the biggest anthems of 2012. It’s pure, spine tingling, haunting, melodic beauty marks it out as one-in-a-million in a scene sometimes swamped by too many run-of-the-mill tracks.
Neither should you ignore the distorted hypnotic “Shakey Solar”, complete with a nagging looped melodic hook line that is beyond brilliant, or the twisted vibe of “Why Don’t You Answer”, both of which are standout tracks in their own right.
Marco Bailey and Tom Hades have been occasional collaborators for over a decade. Anyone who can remember their 2001 anthem “I Love Techno”, knows that this deadly duo are well capable of producing monster tunes. “Stars and Shines” is such a tune and you will be hearing it for many, many months and years to come, a timeless classic in the making?

1. Stars & Shines
2. Shakey Solar
3. Why Don’t You Answer

Marco Bailey & Tom Hades – Stars and Shines

Marco Bailey & Tom Hades Why Don’t You Answer

From the first play I knew Stars & Shines was a monster track and it has been my closing track for last few months, it still sends shivers up my spine now and is destined to be a future classic.” – John Digweed.
