Clark Announces New EP “Fantasm Planes”, Out Sept 4

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by dk

Clark announces the release of Fantasm Planes. The six track EP is due for release on September 4th. It is a counterpart to the recently released Iradelphic, featuring new variations on key album tracks as heard in his recent live shows; this includes three reworks of album tracks and three brand new tracks. The title track was premiered on KCRW last month, during a guest DJ set from Clark on Garth Trinidad’s show.

Fantasm Planes sees Clark exploring the harder, more dancefloor orientated side of his work, and was partly inspired by his recent new live show setup, which involved heavy, psychedelic synth improvisations, infectious beatwork and more upfront, melodic sequences.

Clark: “Ian Brown has always loved the sound of trumpets. I’ve occasionally liked the sound of flutes. And bass. Analogue bass and psychedelic melodies to trip out to on the dance floor. No hippy s**t though. This EP is more about conjuring the full mind-distortion that you get when you hear this music on loud sound systems, that’s sort of what Fantasm Planes is about. Refocusing the album into the context of metric rave gear, but with those full, saturated textures of Iradelphic still playing a vital part ”

Iradelphic, the best performing album of Clark’s career, saw him exploring different ways to interact with his fans, this included a streamed workshop where Chris improvised with vintage synths & modular gear live from his Berlin studio. This album also coincided with Clark’s first run of US shows in years and fans can expect not to have to wait that long again to see him back in the States.

Electric Rescue – Dope – Digweed & Muir + Stephan Bodzin Remixes

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by dk

The reception for Electric Rescue’s original version of Dope (BEDDIGI13), released at the tail end of 2011, was nothing short of exceptional. A huge tune in John Digweed’s sets for months before release, this Balearic techno monster combined the elegance of Detroit attitude with the groove of a big room tune, like no other. Underground and eclectic, it went overground in a big way!
Now, Bedrock brings you an absolutely superb remix package that is sure to cause an equally huge commotion. Electric Rescue revisits Dope and tweaks and twists the original into a brand new (and no less massive) anthem for summer 2012. On remix duty, John Digweed and Nick Muir show that they never rest on past laurels and are always developing their sound in an exciting direction, by producing a massive, low-slung, throbbing house interpretation. To round off the package in style, German master-producer Stephan Bodzin takes Dope on an exotic electro-techno journey that is pure autobahn driving material, the quality and authenticity of his re-production a testament to studio skills that can only come from years of dedicated time spent in the studio.
Few French electronic music artists combine experience, avant-gardism and guaranteed success on dance floors as Electric Rescue (aka Antoine Husson) does. With his reputation already flying high in France via his residency at the Rex Club (check out the superb Skryptöm parties) and also organising Play rave parties in Paris, his Dope is once again set to be incredibly popular worldwide.

Having become one of the most sophisticated and emotive producers in electronic music over the last decade, Guy J will now launch his own label on 23rd July 2012. Lost & Found is an exciting new platform that will allow him to release not only his own critically lauded, sensual, hypnotic take on house music, deeply textured techno and wondrous ambient material, but also give him the freedom to sign and nurture new talent and unleash hidden gems from established artists.
Since Guy J’s work is always touched with a magic and emotion that few rival, this new project is a very exciting prospect indeed. Lost & Found will operate as a sub-label of Bedrock, John Digweed’s influential and long-established mothership, which will mean that there will be a wealth of experience and knowledge behind the scenes.
Guy J’s ear for great music will now extend to his own imprint – Lost & Found – and I’m really excited to hear what he has in store for us with his own music and signed release’s forthcoming on the label” – JOHN DIGWEED
