Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2012 by dk

Very limited vinyl repress released on Feb 6th. Nocturnal Sunshine is the new alias for Maya Jane Coles. She’s one half of vocal duo She Is Danger and an emerging tech house superstar under her own name. This release, is all about the A side “Can’t Hide the Way I Feel,” the writhing monster that both fetishes extreme pain and bottles it up in an unbearably spiralling arpeggio that grows and shrinks without ever revealing an opening. Nocturnal Sunshine is worth making an exception for.”

DJ support from: Scuba, Hatcha, Skream, Mary Anne Hobbs, Joy Orbison, Pearson Sound, Appleblim, Brendon Moeller, Kowton, Cosmin TRG & George Fitzgerald.

Due to unforseen and impossible circumstances Martyn has had to cancel his appearance at Bloc as part of In:Motion on the 25th November.

However, to replace him we welcome Artwork. Along with Skream and Benga Artwork is the third member of the mighty Magnetic Man, who have been dubbed the first half step super group. He also part owned the prestigious Big Apple records in Croydon, one of London´s surburbs which saw garage mutate into dubstep.

As Magnetic Man they perform using three computers, one playing drum samples, one playing basses and the third playing leads and samples. Artwork controls the master laptop, to which the other two are synchronised via Midi. Their sets usually consist of a mix of original tracks produced together, and live remixes of Benga and Skream´s tracks. Artwork will be playing alongside Joker, Nathan Fake, James Holden, 2562 plus many more.


As the English winter dictates the end of the UK festival season, Motion’s solid structure resumes play indoors letting the spirit of the summer blossom into the winter months.

Nearing the calibre of festival status in scale, sound and energy, Motion continue their expansion into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park, with warrens leading to multiple separate spaces, all hosting their own unique party.  Their ever-increasing loyal fan base and extensive line-ups are being pushed even further into the double warehouse, as well as outside in the car park, which comes equipped with food court, heated seating area and photo-booth. With each turn you can get more lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music.

November sees the Field Day team take the magic of the festival and transport it through the night to the raw and vast confines of Bristol’s Motion.  After delivering a sterling line-up this summer in London’s Victoria Park, they hand pick the best for their In:Motion date, where we can witness DJ sets from Friendly FiresErol Alkan and Glaswegian electro whizz kid Hudson Mohawke.

Over the last few years, The BLOC Weekend annual festival has become a compulsory destination for electronic music fans.  No other UK festival so vigorously and variously reaps the vanguard of underground dance music past and present quite like they do. Last year they invited down dirty bird Claude Vonstroke and Andrew Weather to fill Motion’s Tunnel, with his unique and compelling musical selection. Destined to better themselves from last year, they bring dubstep prodigy Joker, hot off the heels of releasing his album ‘The Vision’ and Border Community Nathan Fake, for a festival sized line-up in an inner city club.

Sven Vath’s Cocoon are to techno what light is to fire. They continue to touch thousands of people across every continent with their inimitable brand and unfaltering shows. With weekly parties at Amnesia during the Ibiza season, Love Family Park, Green & Blue festivals and Cocoon in the Park, Cocoon are becoming synonymous with huge scaling events with immaculate production. One of Europe’s leading labels, they bring German duo Tiefschwarz alongside Shonkyand Dyed Soundorom from the French contingent, all heading to the West Country to bring the magic of Cocoon to Bristol for one night only.

Futureboogie join up with the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy and exude a festival feel with live shows from Crazy P and Henrik Schwarz, plus a back room hosted by London’s disco mafiaHorse Meat Disco. Ramping things up on the production side are Just Jack, who for their Halloween show bring aerial artists, art installations, costume and make up stalls. Interactive character actors will be roaming and terrorising all night throughout the club, on the floor and hanging from the ceiling. The Gunpowder Plot on the 5th November brings an explosion of action with a firework display, bonfire and circus performers to add more flames to the fire.

Bristol In Motion continues to stage live music events throughout the winter months from October through to the end of December. Offering the finest in musical and performing talent from across the world to touch your heart, body and soul – eyes and ears.

Arkist & Kidkut – One Year Later /Vanilla Imitate (Hotflush)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2011 by dk

Hotflush presents the debut collaborative release from Arkist and Kidkut, both based in Bristol, UK. The title track is a four to the floor deep cut, adorned with subaquatic atmospherics, warm contours of bass and subtly stirring melodies, a magnificent pairing with Scuba’s imprint. On the flip side, “Vanilla Imitate” maintains the vibe and amps the energy with a smart infusion of shuffling UK garage flavors and emotive soundscapes.

Arkist’s solo productions have been recently released on Appleblim’s Apple Pips label, If Symptoms Persist, and Deca Rhythm. Kidkut is the mastermind behind the Immerse Records label, which has been releasing quality bass music since 2006. His solo productions can also be found on Apple Pips and Well Rounded Records.

Out on vinyl and digital JULY 25TH.

We Love Vitalik (VIT008) out July 25th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2011 by dk

Various Artists
We Love Vitalik

We Love Space team up with Vitalik Recordings to unveil a special collection of music for their 2011 annual compilation.
Following in the footprints of the likes of 2020Vision and Viva, Vitalik Recordings have taken the concept a step further by compiling an album of unreleased material from a diverse mixture of musical souls in their partnership with We Love… Space Ibiza. 
The compilation features 12 exclusive tracks from the likes of legendary production king, Martin Buttrich, dubstep champion Appleblim, enigmatic talent The Mole, and touches on a torrent of rising stars such as Pezzner, Mark Henning, Hugo Barritt, Paul Loraine, Soulade and jozif.
Highlighting some of the most inspiring music on the label’s horizon, the collection is an assortment of the label’s own artists, We Love´s residents and  characters that Vitalik label boss, Ryan O’Gorman has introduced to We Love via his Burlington Project collaboration in the Red Box at Space.  
Spanning a plethora of genres, the resulting collection of music flows and ebbs from the early slow sultry grooves of The Mole´s ‘Even now still us’ to the broken beats and colossal bass of closing Appleblim´s ‘Moonlight’ consistently capturing an old-school feel and drawing into its deep and soulful heart.
A mixed CD version comes from We Love´s newest resident jozif and Vitalik label head Ryan O’Gorman, the spearhead of the Burlington Project that has infamously taken over the Red Room at Space over the past two summers.  This will be distributed for free throughout the Island by We Love… from early June for a limited time only. 
This creation from these two talents to watch will enrapture listeners for many months to come. The official singles release will be in late July with a limited edition vinyl sampler accompanying the digital release.

Incyde -Telophase EP (1st August ,Steadfast Records)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2011 by dk

Originally from outside Boston, Incyde first became involved in electronic music through his work at Hotflush Recordings while living in London on a university work program in 2007, where he began playing at clubs and radio shows around the city’s thriving dubstep scene. In 2008 he moved to New York City and became a resident deejay of the nation’s founding dubstep event, Dub War, where he developed a reputation for his tasteful selection and genre-bending explorations into bass music. Progressively focusing more energy on enhancing his sets, his productions were first met with support by Mary Anne Hobbs of BBC Radio 1 and Scuba in 2010. His debut “Axis” was released on Hotflush’s Back and 4th compilation in April 2011. As a producer this is only the beginning of Incyde’s path, as he melts and reshapes broken beats and bass into his own signature concoctions. If otherworldly futuristic beat & bass explorations are what you’re after, look no further.

Arkist & Komonazmuk – Outbreak / Until Next Time – 12″ Vinyl(ISP005)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2010 by dk

Ever-versatile, Komonazmuk has seen varied releases on labels including Combat Recordings and Apple Pips, as well as a number of legendary remixes alongside Appleblim, including Brian Eno and Bonobo. His hotly anticipated album is due out on H.E.N.C.H in 2011. Arkist is a fresh face with a fresh sound straight out of Bristol’s creative melting-pot. Newly released from beneath the mentoring wings of Komonazmuk and Appleblim, his slick productions have already been slated for release on DecaRhythm, Apple Pips and Subdepth Records. A. Arkist & Komonazmuk – ‘Outbreak’ – Is it a bird, is it a plane? Arkist & Komonazmuk’s collaborative effort sticks to ISP’s ‘it’s-impossible-to-pin-down’ mantra, dipping its beak into the waters of electro, robo-funk, dubstep… possibly even harking back to a long-forgotten time when breakbeat was interesting. Straight up, no messing, ‘Outbreak’ comes with its weighty, synthesised beats from the go. After the drop the bassline strolls along playfully below a mirror of the same in light-footed melody. Around the halfway mark the ghosts of former rave stabs and an acid synth line add to an already eclectic sound. Watch out for the growling switch-up in the second drop. DJ support from: Appleblim, the Foreign Beggars, HENCH, Maryanne Hobbs etc AA. Arkist – ‘Until Next Time’ – The spikey breakbeats and spliced vocals of the intro give little warning of the rich sonics and warm compression of the track that follows the drop. It’s dubstep Jim, but not as we know it… not a wobble in sight but smooth sub-bass pulses position this track firmly on the dancefloor, while a fluid, saturdated melody and glistening top end show exactly why Arkist’s production standards have been turning heads in the scene recently. Never one to sit back and ride the loop, ‘Until Next Time’ is no different, with Arkist repeatedly shifting through gears of sub-heavy groove. If Ibiza was built for bass-heads, this track would be wearing the needles out at the Cafe del Mar. DJ Support from: Scuba, Headhunter, Appleblim etc.

Ramadanman & Appleblim — Void 23 (Carl Craig Re-Edit)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2010 by dk

Will Saul’s imprint, Aus Music, returns with the much anticipated Ramadanman and Appleblim single “Void 23”, which comes complete with a re-edit from one of the cornerstones of electronic music – Carl Craig. The original track, featured on Damian Lazarus’ just released fabric 54 compilation, further fuses the production sensibilities of dubstep with the sounds and vibes of techno to devastating effect. Carl Craig delivers more than just a re-edit, changing the rhythm structure of the original to enable it to work in peak time house and techno settings. Erol Alkin recently declared that the c2 edit “just blew my mind” after hearing Ramadanman drop it at a recent gig.

In 2010, Carl Craig could be found working on remixes for fellow artists Hot Chip, Radio Slave and Kenny Larkin. This year, Planet E, Craig’s Detroit based label, released EP’s by Gemini, Sandiego and Urban Tribe, to name a few. Next year, the label will celebrate its 20th year anniversary.

Ramadanman co-runs the label Hessle Audio with Panagaea and Ben UFO. He has graced us with several releases from his own imprint as well as esteemed labels Soul Jazz, Tempa and Critical Music.  Most recently, Ramadanman partnered up with Midland on a joint EP for Aus titled ‘Your Words Matter / More Than You Know’, pairing the sounds of classic house and garage with dub step creating something completely fresh.

Appleblim, head of Applepips and co-founder of Skull Disco has been keeping busy as well, with remixes for Paul Woolford and the Ostgut Ton label and the recently released Lipsmacker EP on Aus, a collaboration with fellow Bristol based bass enthusiast, Al Tourettes.
