DOWNLOAD/ THE NOAH PRED REMIX OF “DOPAMINE”:
Hidden Recordings welcomes up & coming Washington DC-based producer Jubilee to their roster with the delightfully sinister Dopamine EP. Featuring remixes from Thoughtless Music’s Noah Pred and Hidden’s own in-house production team of Deepak Sharma & Dieter Krause, this single is the first in a series of quality releases from the label due out in 2010. This release is comprised of two original Jubilee compositions: “Dopamine” and “Histamine”. The pair of tracks are remixed by Pred and Sharma & Krause respectively.
New York City’s Hidden Recordings has provided a wide range of techno to hundreds of DJs and fans since 2006. The label’s sound ranges from deep techno to atmospheric chill-out with quirky grooves and has been played everywhere from big room gigs and festivals to smaller lounges and early morning terraces.
RELEASE DATE: April 2010 – vinyl; May 2010 Digital
Dopamine (Original Mix)
A loping Philly-style house bass line and tight vocal editing give this track a warm, funky feeling that bounces. Handclap sounds gives the original a nice dynamic and a complete, organic touch that falls somewhere between main room funky house and its deeper, late night cousin – tech house.
Dopamine (Noah Pred Remix) download
Pred carves a different path on his re-working with a darker, noisier vision that is more in line with his own Thoughtless imprint’s interpretation of techno. Science fictional machinations whirl around deep synth pads and a much less amiable version of Jubilee’s original bass line. The results will have dance floors treading through a syrupy haze of early AM speaker dust.
Histamine (Original Mix)
On “Histamine”, Jubilee takes a more synthetic approach with buzzsaws of ascending minimal beats and a skeletal bass line pounding out a relentless and dreamy groove. The insistent pulse here compels listeners like a irresistible siren song.
Histamine (Deepak Sharma & Dieter Krause)
Label founders Sharma and Krause knock one out of the park on this wicked slice of assembly line techno. Detroit and Dusseldorf techno influences battle it out for supremacy on a tough-as-nails production from this talented duo.
Born in Casa Blanca, Morocco, Jubilee grew up listening to his father play instruments and old records. Ten years ago, Jubilee came to the U.S.A., bringing his culturally infused sense of rhythm, beats, and sounds to the streets of DC as a club promoter for Panorama. His interest in becoming a DJ started when he would watch the DJs play for 6 hours a crack, just watching every movement, learning. In 2001, DJ Alex Kelly was playing at DC’s former club, Spot. Jubilee was watching him play until the DJ handed the headphones over. Stunned and feeling like a daydream, Jubilee put on the headphones and started mixing. Daylight couldn’t come faster. As soon as he could, Jubilee went out and bought about ten records and asked Alex if he could open for him until he got to the club. Shortly after, he bought his first turntable set. Everyday, Jubilee would just play the records over and over and over again. Listening. Feeling the sound and making it work. Jubilee has been creating impressionable sounds over the past two years, gearing toward becoming one of the music’s up and coming artists. Between his live performances and unique DJ sets, Jubilee has created quite a following in DC, earning credibility with some of the industry’s top venues. Support has been a phenomenal instrument is generating Jubilee’s success. With pal Gabriel Rojas and residency with Mnmlife, Jubilee has put together events premiering local and global talents and played with artist such as Josh Wink, Adultnapper, Mr. C, and Matthias Tanzmann. The more you follow, you’ll see it’s more than just music.
