Dark Sky -Black Rainbows

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2012 by dk

The Dark Sky story started here on Black Acre back in the mists of 2010 with an explosive 12” that garnered fevered from press to dancefloor. Now the prodigal sons return with a batch of advanced lazer-tech dancefloor smashers with a noir edge.

The EP kicks of with F-Technology a heavy dissertation in Low-End Theory, with gravity changing kicks, neck snap snares and a scattergun percussive workout while goose bump inducing chord dance along your spine. Tremor lives up to its namesake weighing in with abyssal tons of sub-tropic bassweight punctuated by skeletal yet booming drums. Zoom takes proceedings back into the seemingly familiar realms of future garage while sound tracking a midnight commute on the lost highway. Totem is the perfect post-rave salve, an optimistic close, like sunrise during the calm of a dawn break return home.

LOCKED GROOVE – Rooted EP

Hotflush presents the debut 12″ from Belgian newcomer Locked Groove aka Tim Van de Meutter. The young producer delivers three hypnotizing and genre bending tracks that expertly weave the sounds of Berghain, soulful house and UK garage into a single crushing package. The “Rooted” EP draws you in with the title track, bouncing along to an acid baseline, then moves onto “Drowning”, a moody techno track that was included on Scuba’s DJ-Kicks mix compilation, filled with drum and ambient samples taken from field recordings. Lastly, “Change”, a production that smartly melds classic house grooves with industrial techno, demonstrates Locked Groove’s rhythmic finesse and long-term promise as an artist.

Colleen Green Announces 12″ EP ‘Cujo’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2011 by dk

COLLEEN GREEN ANNOUNCES 12″ EP “CUJO”
Available October 4, 2011 On Art Fag Recordings
National Tour Supporting Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles Kicks off 10/1 in San Diego, CA

Art Fag Recordings, the vinyl label responsible for launching the careers of artists like Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles and Best Coast, is pleased to announce their latest release with everyone’s favorite California Girl, Colleen Green. Green will release her upcoming limited edition vinyl six-song 12″ EP entitled Cujo on October 4, 2011.
 
To celebrate the release, Green will embark on a national tour supporting Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles starting October 1st in San Diego, CA. A full list of dates is below.
 
Colleen Green couldn’t possibly give less of a fuck. A Boston native turned California girl, Green subscribes to the grungy lessons taught by the Ramones and adds to them the laissez faire super cool of modern California stoner pop. “I just tell them it’s pop punk,” Green says of how she describes her music when people inquire. “Straight up, and usually they’ll say something like, ‘Oh!'” she adds, “but I know in my heart that they don’t REALLY care.” Not caring when you really care is the best line of defense in many situations, and it’s a theme that Green explores thoroughly in many of her songs. “I Wanna Be Degraded,” an ode to the sexy little things we do to feel like shit about ourselves, and the ways that being in love makes it safer to explore them, is a quintessential Green ditty, with a driving guitar line of just a note or two, and sweet, perfectly layered harmonies. It’s straight-forward and simple, and completely describes so much.
With songs about little things-dancing with your friends and wanting boys to like you-Green writes about all the ways we try to get rid of our heartache, something she actually says in the chorus of “Dance the Night Away.” She’s a sad songwriter, without a doubt, and the upbeat, clapping drumbeats and simple chord progressions she employs only facilitate the cathartic explorations of loneliness in her songs. Green also heavily employs the magic of the cover song to get her feelings across, covering everyone from Blink-182 to Nobunny. “I just love songs with catchy melodies and sad sack lyrics,” she says, basically describing her own songs as well, “and I really like singing other people’s songs. Way better than singing my own. It’s so much easier.”
Green’s live show is like a lesson in being the coolest girl in school-she stands stark still, alone on stage (save for sometimes a drummer), her face half obscured by bangs and sunglasses, and sings her songs without many flourishes. She describes herself as “wicked lazy and poor,” but exudes that I’m-so-confident-I-don’t-even-need-confidence vibe more than anything else. She claims that’s not so, though, and even her signature shades were once a source of worry for Green. She consulted her best friend Kayla, also the namesake behind one of her first EPs, and her fear was lifted. “I was hanging out with Kayla as I often do,” Green says, “and I asked her if she thought I would face mockery and ridicule for wearing sunglasses on stage. And she said something along the lines of, ‘I’m pretty sure you can do whatever the fuck you want.’ Since then that’s been sort of my mantra.”
It’s not just Green who owes a lot to her friends. They provide the inspiration for her songs, for her album covers, for her record titles. They also, she says, are the reason she makes music. “Everyone I know is REALLY nice to me, and it helps me not want to kill myself, ” Green says, maybe laughing, maybe not, “if I killed myself, I wouldn’t be able to make music! So thanks, friends. This one’s for you.” We have to thank her friends as well. Keep it up, Kayla and Jeff and the rest of you, so we can keep listening.

Guy J -Heliscope EP (Bed95)(preview)

GUY J
Heliscope EP
1. Heliscope
2. Easy As Can Be
(Bedrock) Bed95
12” & Beatport Exclusive 22/11/10

After setting the scene alight with numerous killer singles, Israeli producer Guy J released his hotly anticipated full-length artist album ‘Esperanza’ on Bedrock Records in last quarter of 2008, to universal critical acclaim, and has been touring ever since around the globe. In 2009 he returned to Bedrock with yet another killer single, ‘Lamur’, complete with a stunning remix from one of Spain’s upcoming stars, Henry Saiz. This was followed by another stunning production, ‘Ballroom’, later in that year.

The mighty ‘Esperanza’ was a highlight once again this summer when it was remixed twice, by Umbral Aguir and Sistema, for John Digweed’s Structures mix album. Now Guy J returns with a highly anticipated, brand new new double-header for Bedrock. Whether you go for the energetic genius of ‘Heliscope’ or the lush, laid-back beauty of ‘Easy As Can Be’, there can be no denying that Guy J is one of the stand-out electronic artists in the world today.

Guy J has emerged over the course of the last few years to represent an intrinsic part of the Israeli dance music juggernaut that has been steadily powering through clubland in recent times. Along with fellow countrymen Guy Gerber, Sholmi Aber, Chaim and Gel Abril, Guy has been at the forefront of a movement back towards the melody rich sounds on which House music is based. Guy’s productions, with their driving beats, shimmering synths and journey-like qualities, embody characteristics from all sub-genres of House music. Guy J creates music that is brimming with soul and the Heliscope EP is testament to that.
