Following last year’s triumphant debut on Untold’s imprint Hemlock, Brighton based producer Guy Andrews is back with his first 12″ for Hotflush Recordings. A superb followup to his 2011 auditory missive, The Wait / Hands in Mine merges percussive elements with heavy basslines resulting in two dark dancefloor cuts.

Side A is a bass-driven afrobeat stepper, while on the flip, Andrews shows off his ability to manipulate genres by using a deep bass kick and frenzied rhythmic percussion to dial up an atmospheric tune.

With recent acclaim from XLR8R, Resident Advisor and Truants along with DJ and radio support from the likes of Benji B, L-Vis 1990, Brackles, Sound Pellegrino, Shortstuff, Benjamin Damage and Throwing Snow, Guy Andrews is on the rise. Lookout for another 12″ via Hotflush this Fall.

Release date: May 28th 2012

Champion – Lighter EP- Formula Records – FRM001

Catalogue Number: FRM001

Tracklisting

3. Bongoshot

After much anticipation one of UK funky’s brightest stars, Champion, finally drops his deadly Lighter EP as the inaugural release on his new imprint, Formula Records.

Sitting somewhere in between Lil’ Silva, Roska and Cooly G Champion has got the undiluted UK Funky sound down to perfection. He’s already been marked as one to watch by Fact Magazine and Champion is growing as a producer with each release. The Lighter EP exemplifies the style and sound that has got him the admiration and plaudits from DJ’s across the board – raw, rugged and rhythmic in abundance.

Lead single Lighter showcases his seductive percussion techniques with stripped back drums setting the stage early on and an audacious bass melody that is aggressive but playful at the same time.

Bongoshot sees Champions play with more futuristic synths but the syncopated drum pattern and arpeggiated bass that accompanies it brings it right up to the present day sound of the UK underground.

Off the back of the infectious Motherboard EP on Terror Danjah’s Hardrive label earlier this year the Lighter EP has proven longevity given the fact that it has been played constantly by the likes of Kode 9, Benji B, Bok Bok, Roska and Oneman for the past 18 months yet its release is still highly sought after.

To get a taster of the Champion sound in a club then look no further than the audio from the recent Butterz & Hardrive extravaganza at Cable from a few weeks back which contains a barrage of his productions both old and new.

SVET004: 141 by BNJMN (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2011 by E.N.

The Belgrade, Serbia based label Svetlana Industries today announced it will release it’s fourth recording on 13th June.

The record comes from BNJMN, the techno alias of enigmatic British producer Ben Thomas. As Jackhigh he released an astonishing collaboration Tropics EP with Teebs on Svetlana last year, attracting praise from figures as diverse as Hudson Mohawke and Falty DL. He followed that up with a totally different but equally acclaimed album as BNJMN for cult Dutch label Rush Hour earlier this year, which won him a new audience in techno circles, with plays and pladits from figures such as Benji B, Surgeon and Laurent Garnier.

The EP boasts four original tracks that build on BNJMN’s organic techno sound and take it in a new direction, absorbing influences from 2step and garage and the bass production of Burial, and combining it with very Detroit and Drexciyan aquatic sounds, all with Ben’s distinctive nostalgic melodies, filtered through a misty lo-fi haze.
These tracks are complemented by two remixes: Lukid’s extraordinary remix has been described as “looking out of a café window through the rain to an empty beach”, while Kelpe’s remix reveals a new aggressive edge and deep sense of foreboding to his sound.

There’s also a stunning video to accompany the Lukid remix of One Sea produced by new Svetlana signing Devon Hansen. The piece works as much as a piece of modern art as it does a promo, and a public screening is planned.
