Jemmy-Waterloo Blues

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by J.D.

BEDDIGI36Anyone who was at the Bedrock party in Liverpool earlier this year will know that this is a musical city through and through, so its great to see one of Liverpool’s finest up and coming talents releasing his excellent music on John Digweed’s label. Jemmy’s Bedrock debut “Quarry Bank” appeared on the Bedrock 14 compilation in 2012 and paved the way for this debut single release

“Waterloo Blues” is pure summer sunshine magic with its delicious swirling melodies and scratchy beats. Jemmy has always eschewed genre, his knowledge and love for music from right across the spectrum, as well as his own unique sound, means he appeals to a wide range of DJs, borne out by the fact that the likes of John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia, Slam & Paco Osuna are giving him their support.

Jemmy is also making a big impact on the world of electronic music with his long standing DJ residencies with Freeze, as well as for the mighty Cream across Europe. He also has the rare and impressive claim of being the world’s first ever DJ to play at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral! During the day Jemmy runs his own record shop and label – Liverpool’s world-renowned 3B Records. It’s no wonder that big things are happening for this super-talented young man!

Fellow scouser and Circus master, Yousef, lends his support with his Circus Rework of “Waterloo Blues”, taking it on a deeper hypnotic journey to create a perfect package. The top rank international DJ, producer, club promoter and music aficionado shows exactly why he is at the top of his game and so respected.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2013 by J.D.

BEDDIGI_33Proving that amazing electronic dance music can come from absolutely anywhere in the world, if you travel 1,210 kilometres east from Australia into the heart of the southwest Pacific Ocean to a place called Nouméa on a group of islands collectively known as New Caledonia, you will find a certain Oniris, creator of some of the most sublime melodic techno that you will hear this year.

Up until now, this mysterious and exceptional young producer has been picking up praise and support from some of the world’s most savvy and innovative forward-thinking artists & DJs. When Laurent Garnier is waxing lyrical about your talents on his radio show, and your tracks are highlights in the sets of such illustrious people as John Digweed, Agoria, Psycatron, Marc Romboy and Ian O’Donovan, there is most definitely something very special going on!

As Ian O’Donovan says: “I’ve been playing these tracks for a while now and they are amazing! They are dynamite on the floor and beautifully melodic! A fantastic introduction to an artist I’m sure you’ll be hearing plenty more of!”

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 & Nick Muir – Raise (Bedrock)(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2012 by J.D.

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.

Bedrock 14 (2xCD) compiled by John Digweed + Bedrock 14th Anniversary

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2012 by J.D.


BEDROCK 14 compiled by John Digweed features 21 exclusive tracks from some of Bedrock’s favourite artists and some exciting new names on the Bedrock roster, in a DJ-friendly unmixed format.
I’m really happy with the 21 tracks I have selected for this latest Bedrock compilation. With a mixture of Bedrock favourites and fresh new producers this album shows that Bedrock is always committed to finding the best electronic music out there.” – John Digweed

The wealth of artists involved for Bedrock 14 is truly amazing. This 2012 label compilation captures the essence of why electronic dance music is such an exciting prospect right now by showcasing amazing underground talent, both established and new.

What a dream start to what should be a highly successful career for Eagles & Butterflies. The album opens with the beautifully mellow “Kollekt”, the first of two debut tracks (the other being the equally adventurous “Stimmer”) from this new artist. Likewise, Kurtz & Bomber, an exciting collaboration between Troy Kurtz & Panic Bomber (Richard Haig) from Miami, USA debut here with the incredibly infectious vocalized “Never Sleeping”.

John Digweed’s ability to draw together an exciting array of international talent into one cohesive whole is pretty much unparalleled. “Resistance”” by Stuttgart’s Solee, shows exactly why he crosses divides and spans genres with his distinctive take on evocative melodic techno. Spain’s Paneoh (who also appeared on “Structures 2” and “Live In Cordoba”) displays all his hyper-energetic twisted brilliance on “Vetabom”, while one of Australia’s most talented and sought after music producers, Infusion’s Jamie Stevens, makes a welcome return to Bedrock (after his exceptional remix of John Digweed’s “Warung Beach”) with “Indigo”.

Rising UK star, Liverpool’s Jemmy, is given the lush remix treatment on his hypnotic “Quarry Bank” track by Greece’s Stelios Vassiloudis, whose critically acclaimed debut album, “It Is What It Is”, showed the world that variety is indeed the spice of life. So, it’s no wonder that Stelios makes three appearances on Bedrock 14, adding his wild acidic grooved “What’s That?” to the proceedings and teaming up with Florian Kruse and Nils Nurnberg as Wiretappeur for “Iridescent”, another example of this trio’s highly original and deep understanding of the power of melody.

Bedrock’s new talent is in exceptional form throughout. Canada’s Maher Daniel teams up NYC’s Nikko Gibler for the low-slung, spiralling beauty of “I’ll Wait For You”. Maxime Dangles has grown to be a key new artist in the French avant-garde electronic music community and is creating waves around the globe with his unabashed approach to proper club techno music, so its not surprise that “Unsteady Curve” is yet another example of his amazing music. Fellow rising French star, Antoine Husson (aka Electric Rescue), brings his distinctive brand of ultra-dynamic techno and sensuality to the party with an exceptional remix of John Digweed & Nick Muir’s “Raise” and his own monster creation, “Stucked Ship”.

Israeli producer Guy J has become one of the most sophisticated and emotive producers in electronic music over the last decade, with a body of work and a sphere of influence that belies relatively short time in the spotlight. With the melody-rich and emotionally charged “Mish Mash”, he shows exactly why he is one of the most inspirational artists in the world. As are Spain’s Marc Marzenit and Henry Saiz, whose “Sirens Land” explains why their complex and emotive form of electronic club music is exciting so many people right now.

So much exceptional talent is on display on Bedrock 14 and we haven’t even mentioned Germany’s Robert Babicz, whose music career already spans two decades. The mark of a true musical innovator, he continues to reveal his talent and skill as one of Europe’s most essential techno producers here with another stunning creation, “Eastside”. Then there’s another Bedrock favourite, the techno tastemaker Christian Smith with “The Judgement”, showing exactly why he has operated at the top of his game for over a decade now. The chiming keys of Marco Bailey’s “Whispering Leaves” effortlessly lift the proceedings to anthem level and Quivver (aka world-renowned DJ/producer/songwriter John Graham) never fails to impress, “Fakes and Bullshit” sending out a clear message.

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) and their intense “Crazy” is surely a highlight here too. Finally, it’s fitting that John Digweed and Nick Muir, producers of the finest electronic dance music, bring the show to a close with their “Trezz Intro” interlude, since between them they 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 further. With Bedrock 14, the label also shows that it is not resting on past laurels but always moving forward, developing in an exciting direction.

Kruse & Nuernberg – Let’s Call It A Day

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2012 by J.D.

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.

Electric Rescue – Dope – Digweed & Muir + Stephan Bodzin Remixes

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by J.D.

The reception for Electric Rescue’s original version of Dope (BEDDIGI13), released at the tail end of 2011, was nothing short of exceptional. A huge tune in John Digweed’s sets for months before release, this Balearic techno monster combined the elegance of Detroit attitude with the groove of a big room tune, like no other. Underground and eclectic, it went overground in a big way!
Now, Bedrock brings you an absolutely superb remix package that is sure to cause an equally huge commotion. Electric Rescue revisits Dope and tweaks and twists the original into a brand new (and no less massive) anthem for summer 2012. On remix duty, John Digweed and Nick Muir show that they never rest on past laurels and are always developing their sound in an exciting direction, by producing a massive, low-slung, throbbing house interpretation. To round off the package in style, German master-producer Stephan Bodzin takes Dope on an exotic electro-techno journey that is pure autobahn driving material, the quality and authenticity of his re-production a testament to studio skills that can only come from years of dedicated time spent in the studio.
Few French electronic music artists combine experience, avant-gardism and guaranteed success on dance floors as Electric Rescue (aka Antoine Husson) 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, his Dope is once again set to be incredibly popular worldwide.

Bedrock – Underground Sound Of Miami

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by J.D.

BEDROCK_UNDERGROUND SOUND OF MIAMI features 10 exclusive tracks from some of Bedrock’s favourite artists and some exciting new names to the Bedrock roster, in a DJ-friendly unmixed format.
We’ve been wanting to do a Miami sampler for the last few years now, showcasing some of the great artists we work with on the label, but other projects and releases got in the way of letting us do this. However, this year we have been very fortunate to be in a position where we not only had some amazing music but also some time to get this organised, so we could do it properly. I’ve also been able to road-test all the tracks at gigs since the start of January and the reactions to the music has been amazing, so it seemed perfectly apt to put a release together that we can focus on around Miami and the Bedrock showcase parties there.” – John Digweed

Richie G – Eterna/But Her Fly (Bedrock)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 17, 2012 by J.D.

Richie G is a prodigiously talented seventeen-year-old electronic music producer and DJ from Montreal, Canada, who you should already have on your music radar having released his debut, self-produced, “Baum” EP on Haçienda Records in September and his previous remixes for Traum and, not forgetting, Luis Junior’s “BG” (Bed91) when he was only fifteen!
He has received great support from within the Montreal scene and from this springboard has also pricked up the ears of major names such as John Digweed, Sasha, James Zabiela and Hernan Cattaneo (who also remixed “Vorbendach” from the “Baum” EP). Richie G IMAGE 2
“Eterna” and “But Her Fly” display all the hallmarks of the supremely sumptuous techno-edged electronic music that Richie G produces. Euphoric, beautiful, highly individual and inventive in equal measures, his depth of musical knowledge and finely honed production skills belie his young age. Bedrock brings you two superb tracks from one of the hottest talents around in 2012.

Wiretappeur-Everybody Loves Ice Cream EP

Wiretappeur is a production partnership between Florian Kruse, Nils Nurnberg and Stelios Vassiloudis (aka Stel, who is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut artist album for Bedrock). Their My Real Name Is track and remix of Dirty Mongrel were a standout tracks on the first instalment of John Digweed’s Structures series; while their two versions of Too Much Space on the Bedrock 12 compilation showed their highly original and deep understanding of the power of melody. They were also the perfect candidates to remix John Digweed & Nick Muir’s Bilder (Bilder01). Now they return to Bedrock with the superb Everybody Loves Ice Cream EP.
The title track is pure, fresh and innovative deep house, which oozes melodic beauty and summer vibes. Wiretappeur’s productions have already earned them heartfelt praise and support from many of their peers as well as a wide variety of the industry’s top DJs, including Steve Bug, Luciano and Josh Wink, and Everybody Loves Ice Cream is sure to follow suit. Furry Walls is a more laid-back percussive experience, dubbed-out and spacious in structure with melodic hooks aplenty.
Vincenzo’s remix of Everybody Loves Ice Cream introduces a heavier kick and ups the energy levels while slotting in an amazing dub influenced bass, which takes the track in an exciting new direction and will surely prove to be a big tune for many DJs for months to come.
Germany’s Vincenzo is one of the stars of the Hamburg club scene. His superb To Hume EP was released on Bedrock back in April 2011 to great critical acclaim. Originally spotted and guided by Steve Bug, he released his debut LP on the stylish Dessous label and is now an internationally respected producer. Spotters will already be well aware of Vincenzo’s excellent remix of Mutant Clan’s On And Amp (featured on John Digweed’s original Structures album) and his lush, piano laden deep house track for Bedrock 12 (Epic), which was a collaboration with Lovebirds (aka Sebastian ‘Basti’ Doering).
