Turquoise Blue Recordings swiftly follow up their debut release by Tom Ellis with another rapidly rising star of the UK deep and tech house scene: Ruthit.  The Manchester based producer adds to an impressive roster of labels, including murmur, Four:Twenty, Neurotraxx Deluxe, Fresh Meat and Baker Street, with three original tracks that explore deep bubbling acid, chunky heads down grooves and spaced-out trippy vibes. M A N I K, named DJ Mag’s ‘Hot To Watch 2011’ provides a trademark head nodding remix and French producer Boris Horel goes warm and blissful with grainy undertones.

Ruthit aka Carl Handley was born the North East of England but now resides in Manchester.  He learnt his DJ craft in Ibiza hosting intimate parties before attracting the attention of the Zoo Project who offered him a residency back in 2008. Appearances on a range of top house labels and collaborations with Carlos Sanchez & DJ Ray (8bit/Supernature), Kabuto & Kojo (Supernature/Get Physical/Area Remote), Dualton (Viva/Bedrock) and a remix for Darren Emerson’s artist album alongside X-Press 2 are establishing Ruthit as one to watch.

New Yorker M A N I K is one of the hottest names in deep and tech house right now, incorporating a wide range of style in his music stretching from disco and funk to acid and electronica.  His discography is a ‘who’s who’ of leading labels including Hot Creations, Culprit, Ovum (for whom he has released an album), Poker Flat, Dark Energy and Fresh Meat.

Originally from Royan in France, Boris Horel now calls London his home and has become a well known player on the city’s music scene with residencies at ‘Foreign Muck’ (at the Key Club) and ‘Lets’ (at T Bar).  His music can be found on labels such as Adult Only (a collaboration with Dyed Soundorom), Supernature (a remix of Audiofly and original tracks remixed by Dan Ghenacia and Bearweasel), Time Has Changed and Eklo.

Turquoise Blue operates from near to Newcastle upon Tyne and has been founded by Neil Harker.  The label is inspired by underground house stalwarts like Freak ‘n’ Chic, Crosstown Rebels and Leftroom, and more recently Supplement Facts, Culprit , Visionquest and Hot Creations – labels who have managed to grow while maintaining an underground spirit.  The label’s debut release featured Tom Ellis, Kris Wadsworth, Arttu and Nick Turner, while artists coming soon on Turquoise Blue include Laura Jones, Alex Arnout, Djebali and Basic Soul Unit.

airpod #8 : M A N I K

airpod #8 introduces a breakthrough talent from air london’s North American roster. In little less than a year, M A N I K has established his reputation outside of his home town of New York with an excellent slate of releases on, amongst others, Four:Twenty, Poker Flat, Culprit and with his main affiliation Ovum with whom he releases his second EP in late 2010.

With a current diary already including some of the best parties and clubs in the US (Culprit Sessions in LA; Space Miami and NYC’s Resolute), M A N I K has made his mark this year as a DJ and his debut album on Ovum in spring 2011 will surely propel him as a touring artist well beyond North American shores.

Recorded live at his ‘I’m Nice Like That Studios’ in Queens, this is
M A N I K.
