BEDDIGI39 Darren Emerson - Hotdog PreviewDarren Emerson
Hot Dog
1. Original Mix
2. Florian Meindl Remix
(Bedrock) BEDDIGI39
Release: 11.11.13

For the next Bedrock release, the label turns to one of the most influential figures in dance music over the last 20 years, Darren Emerson. Underworld’s classic 1993 “Dubnobasswithmyheadman” album, “Born Slippy” on the Trainspotting movie soundtrack, unforgettable remixes for The Chemical Brothers and Björk, “Scorchio” with Sasha – these are just a few examples of key creations that have captured so many people’s imaginations.

For twenty years Darren Emerson has blazed an unrivalled trail across the electronic scene, navigating a highly successful career as a DJ, producer, remixer and label owner (Underwater and Detone). Now, fresh from a brilliant remix of Paul Rutherford’s Acid House classic “Get Real”, he makes his debut on Bedrock.

“Hot Dog” is a big-room beast that evolves from ethereal pads, heavy drums, clever percussion and crazy noises, to create a hypnotic groove that builds and develops with subtle skill until brimful with tension and bursting with energy. Darren Emerson never fails to impress.

Berlin based Florian Meindl is a multi-talented talented DJ, producer, sound designer, writer and label boss (Flash Recordings), whose productions have graced labels such as Trapez, Stil vor Talent, Herzblut and Kling Klong. Here he strips things back, brings the beats to the fore, turns up the funk factor and creates an equally hypnotic and enthralling and yet distinctly different version of “Hot Dog”.

Once again, Bedrock continues to capture the essence of why electronic dance music is such an exciting prospect right now, picking up praise and support from some of the world’s most savvy and innovative forward-thinking DJs.

Stelios Vassiloudis – Coma / No Sleep (Bedrock)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2012 by E.N.

stelios-vassiloudis-coma-no-sleep-epAlready an exclusive and huge highlight in John Digweed’s DJ sets for the past few months, “Coma”, by the superbly talented Greek producer Stelios Vassiloudis, is now ready for release on Bedrock. It also features prominently in the mix on John Digweed’s forthcoming “Live In London” (4xCD) album.

Both the gloriously epic melodic house style of “Coma” and the more twisted vibe of accompanying track, “No Sleep”, reflect a new supremely dancefloor orientated direction for Stelios Vassiloudis, as he starts work in the new year on the follow-up to his 2011 debut artist album “It Is What It Is”.

These super exciting new tracks, along with his recent output on Bedrock, such as “Hit The Lights” (featured on “Live In Cordoba”) and “What’s That?” (a highlight on Bedrock 14 along with his stunning remix of Jemmy’s “Quarry Bank”) are indicative of what is on the horizon for his highly anticipated new album in 2013.

“These 2 new tracks are a little more epic in scope than the stuff I often play in my sets, but I’m really lucky to have someone as prolific and obliging as John Digweed to test them out for me and share his thoughts.” – Stelios Vassiloudis

Henry Saiz – The Cryptozoologist EP (Bedrock) (Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2012 by E.N.


Henry Saiz
The Cryptozoologist EP
1.The Cryptozoologist
2.Uncharted
(Bedrock) BEDDIGI27
Release: 19.11.12
Cryptozoology, the search for and study of animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the Loch Ness monster and the yeti, is something that Henry Saiz finds deeply intriguing. His love of exoticism and strange natural/organic sounds (his own label is called Natura Sonoris – which means Nature of Sound) provide the fuel for this latest stunning Bedrock release.

“The Cryptozoologist” has an instantly striking, mysterious Andean / Peruvian melodic influence that harks back to cultures shrouded in the mysteries of time, creating a truly haunting track. “Uncharted” is equally hypnotic and enthralling and yet distinctly different. Henry is using a lot of analogue vintage gear to create his music, which is giving him a very distinct sound, a path that will lead to his hotly awaited debut artist album (due out in April 2013) on which he will delve totally into and explore an analogue world (www.wearehenrysaiz.com).

Henry’s critically acclaimed “Balance 019” album, released in 2011, was the catalyst for his star potential explode around the globe. His superb collaboration with Guy J (“Meridian”) and his solo track (“La Marea”) for the landmark Bedrock 100 release, were of the highest level of quality and his most recent release, “Our Discovery” (Natura Sonoris), became a huge Ibiza hit this summer, with supporters including John Digweed, Sasha, M.A.N.D.Y., Luciano, Visionquest, Danny Howells and many others. Henry Saiz is undoubtedly an extraordinarily talented young producer who is simply too exciting to be ignored!

John Digweed is set to release “Live In London” (4xCD) (Bedrock)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2012 by E.N.


“Live In London” features nearly 5 hours of amazing music across a bumper 4xCD set from John Digweed, recorded live in the mix at the recent Bedrock Anniversary Party at Fire & Lightbox, London. You will hear more than 50 tracks and remixes from some of the world’s best underground producers, including the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Tiga, Deetron, Gabriel Ananda, Robert Babicz, Max Cooper, Ben Pearce, jozif, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Luca Bacchetti, Todd Bodine, Pig & Dan, Butch, Paul Ritch, Justin Martin, Catz ‘n Dogz, SIS, Smash TV, Julian Jeweil, Subb-an, Phonogenic, Technasia, Guy J, Heiko Laux & Diego Hostettler and many others. “Live In London” is a flawless journey through some of the most exciting current electronic dance music, all programmed and mixed to perfection, forming the perfect snapshot of one of the best Bedrock events of the year.

The Bedrock Anniversary parties in London are always truly special as it feels like coming home to me. For some reason this party seemed extra special, Fire in Vauxhall is a new venue for us and it has a labyrinth of rooms under the arches which allowed us to feature a line up that most festivals would be happy with! There was definitely a magical vibe in the air when I arrived. I had heard that people had travelled from Russia, America, all over Europe, even New Zealand, to be there. The party was perfect for me, the amazing international crowd created an incredible atmosphere all night long. I love DJing more than ever these days, so to get to play for over 8 hours to an up for it crowd like that, was just pure heaven. This is the first time I have released a 4xCD live mix from one of my gigs and I hope it brings back some great memories for those who were there. If you couldn’t make it, turn the lights down low, turn the volume up loud and I think you’ll understand. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did playing.” – John Digweed

John Digweed & Nick Muir – Raise (Bedrock)(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2012 by E.N.

With a huge buzz already building around the forthcoming “Bedrock 14” album, featuring a stunning remix of “Raise” by Electric Rescue, here comes the spine-tingling, big-room beast of an original version from John Digweed and Nick Muir, accompanied by two additional remixes from the rising French techno star.
In its original form “Raise” is super-energetic, brimful with tension. Electric Rescue takes this blueprint and injects his distinctive brand of ultra-dynamic techno and sensuality to create two exceptional remixes.
John Digweed and Nick Muir, have been involved in many pivotal moments in the world of club music over the years and have in many ways helped to define genres & push the boundaries ever further forward. With “Raise” they shows they never rest on past laurels but are always moving forward, developing their music in an exciting direction.
Antoine Husson (whose “Dope” is still a highlight in many DJ sets around the world) never fails to impress. Few French electronic music artists combine experience, avant-gardism and guaranteed success on dance floors as he 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, Electric Rescue is set to be a huge star.
“Bedrock 14”, the 2012 label compilation, captures the essence of why electronic dance music is such an exciting prospect right now by showcasing a wealth of amazing underground talent, both established and new. Compiled by John Digweed, it features 21 exclusive tracks from some of Bedrock’s favourite artists and some exciting new names, in a DJ-friendly unmixed format.

Pig & Dan – Emotions/Let The Show Begin – Bedrock

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2012 by E.N.

If you’re talking about exciting underground producers, two of the first names out of anyone’s hat should always be Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan (aka Pig & Dan), whose distinctive mixture of influences has given them a sound that is both innovative and easily recognizable, since they first joined forces back in 1999. Right now, it seems like there’s a non-stop flow of success in the air around these two musical madmen. Their last Bedrock release (“Machines”) in April 2012 was a Beatport Top 5 smash and now “Emotions”/”Let The Show Begin” raises the bar even higher.
From the twisted vocalized intro to the deep, deep bass and subtle synth hooks and drops, “Emotions” is, quite simply, a soulful electronic masterpiece. Whilst “Let The Show Begin”, with its quirky nod to Mr. Mojo Risin’, displays a more direct and intense percussive edge to the powerhouse Pig & Dan arsenal.
Once again, it’s hats off to Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with each release. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve by introducing new talent and pushing established artists to their creative best, is something that should be applauded.

Kruse & Nuernberg – Let’s Call It A Day

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2012 by E.N.

Kruse & Nuernberg release their debut artist album through Lazy Days Recordingsin October.  ‘Let’s Call It A Day’ sees the Hamburg based pair – who have previously released on labels such as Noir Music, Liebe*Detail and their own Save Room Recordings – step outside their boundaries to present an eclectic journey through their musical influences, including Indie luminariesLittle Dragon, Metronomy and Pheonix. Live pianos and guitars meet their electronic world with finesse through 11 songs, moving through genres and tempos seamlessly in what Lazy Days’ boss Fred Everything has called “a classic dance album in the making”.

The album features singer Stee Downes, who collaborated on last year’s #1 ‘Want You In My Soul’ from Lovebirds, Nathalie Claude, who featured on Andre Lodemann’s ‘Searching’ and Japanese singer Miwaki. They also co-produced a piece with Florian Kruse’s brother, and deep house legend, Vincenzo (Dessous, Poker Flat).

Kruse & Nuernberg have been on the forefront of the revival of the Deep House scene in the past few years.  As remixers, they have put their magic touch to artists like Dennis Ferrer and Groove Armada as well as being remixed by legendary producers such as Tom Middleton and DJ Sneak. They are also part of the successful outfit ‘Wiretappeur’, who released on John Digweed’s Bedrock label.

The links between Kruse & Nuernberg and Fred Everything stretch back several years with each being a fan of the other’s work.  Their first release on Lazy Days came in May 2010 and they have now recorded three EPs for the label, including a recent collaboration with Fred.

Stelios Vassiloudis – It Was What It Was (Remixes)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 10, 2012 by E.N.

From ambient soundscapes, downtempo vocal tracks and slo-mo house, through to deliciously deep house, tech-house and acid grooves, “It Is What It Is”, the supremely exciting double-disc debut artist album from Stelios Vassiloudis, was released on Bedrock at the tail end of last year. Now, at the height of summer 2012 comes the first of a series of superb album remix packages featuring interpretations from some of the most exciting producers from around the world, fittingly titled “It Was What It Was”.
Jim Rivers is a British innovator, always moving forward in the ever-evolving world of electronic music, crossing the many bridges between house and techno with relaxed dignity. Here he blends techno and acid elements with immense skill, creating a worthy, anthemic interpretation of the deeply delicious original version of “Small Hours”.
Stelios teamed up with like-minded producer, Berlin based Sasse, for one of his album highlights, “The Z”, so remixing such a superb original track would always be a tricky task. São Paulo’s rising global star, Wehbba has stepped up to the plate and created a percussive hook-laden melodic beauty in his inimitable South American style, that is bound to impress.
The album is also rich with the many vocal talents it hosts, with one of the most glorious contributions coming from Astrid Suryanto on “Walk Away”. So, who better than USA’s Ryan Cavanagh (aka Slow Hands) to create this sunshine filled mellow interpretation? As one of the main proponents of the current slow-mo and sultry house revolution, his creations bear all the hallmarks of years of classical and compositional training. Aiming to elevate electronic music to wholly new and rewarding creative planes with his approach to creating songs, not tracks, Slow Hands is about emotion, about warmth, about creative freedom. His interpretation of “Walk Away” is sure to leave you with smile on your face and a glow in your heart.

Maxime Dangles – Hold Up EP(Bedrock Digital)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by E.N.

Maxime Dangles is a key new artist in the French avant-garde electronic music community, creating waves around the globe with his unabashed approach to proper club techno music. Last year, his track “Santé” was a highlight on John Digweed’s “Structures Two” album and the subsequent 4-track “Modulation EP” further showed that Maxime Dangles is an artist buzzing with creative intention. Now, he returns to Bedrock in the summer of 2012 with the stunning 5-track Hold Up EP.

From the intense, swirling, spiralling climaxes of the title track; through the mind-bending, warped energy of “Jarten”; the glorious nagging hook of “My Boo”; “Spagetjack”, with its nod to Giorgio Moroder; to the distorted Detroit attitude of “Transparence”, this is an EP bursting with hypnotic melodic swing and well-timed hands-in-the-air moments. With such an exciting musical palette to play with, Maxime Dangles cannot fail to impress even the most tired of ears.

Born in 1985, Maxime discovered the world of nightclubbing at a very young age. He quickly became an excellent DJ but crucially also learnt how to create his own music. In 2004, he started to work on remixes and edits before developing his own musical imprint, which led to releasing tracks with the famous Kompakt label in 2006. Remixes of Scan X, Miss Kittin & The Hacker, Simian Mobile Disco, Royksopp, Moby etc have followed. Maxime has recently developed a live show and his energy and passion are now making him a rising star of the international scene.
