Traxx – The House That Garage Built (Needwant)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2013 by E.N.

Traxx the house garage builtTwo decades on from the birth of garage in the UK, its resurrection is afoot on the global electronic music horizon. Traxx ‘The House That Garage Built’captures the original sounds of New York and New Jersey house and maps their evolution through to the UK interpretations of today.

Spotlighting a new school of producers that use old school techniques against some clever bass manipulation to bring the sound up to date,‘The House That Garage Built’ is high energy and captures a moment in time where dancefloors are coming alive with a new raw and edgy rhythm that´s both mysterious and spellbinding.

Plotting out artists such as Disclosure (who you’d have to have your head buried underground to have missed in 2012), the dexterous wizard Huxley,and Hot Flush prodigy George Fitzgerald, gifted artists that have seen major recognition and even chart success in the past year.

Traxx also shines the light on some newcomers set for the same path such as Ben Pearce, whose 2012 underground hit ‘What I Might Do’ is served up in remix form by Harry Wolfman on the mixNeedwant’s own Ejecawith the elastic grooves of ‘Horizon’ and London based duo Dusky whose‘Flo Jam’ cut is a furtive bomb. Exclusive track highlights also present on the compilation include productions from Frenchman The Mekanism, Purple Velvet, Munich youngsters Rhode & Brown and LA based Rhythm Operator.

As it happened the first time round, music maestros are moving from their love of house and disco to dirty basslines and broken beats. Brands like Rinse take centre stage and a generation that grew up with an already rich history of electronic music create their own strains, fusing together what went before.

In true contemporary fashion and unlike the original garage sound phenomenon, the music Traxx covers is now as accessible for artists and DJs such as Maya Jane Coles, Jamie Jones, Rob Da Bank and Sasha as well as pioneers of the genre such as T Williams and Boddika. A true testament that this musical revival appeals to all walks of life and has found a foothold in the worlds of techno, dubstep, acid as well as nu-disco and house.

Traxx is the latest concoction from London’s prestigious disco and house imprint Needwant who are responsible for some stellar releases from the likes of Kim Ann Foxmann, Mario Basanov and Ejeca. The London based label has won iTunes dance music compilation of the year for their popular Future Disco series and continues to spot movements and showcase their findings at worldwide events in far flung locations such as Ibiza, Amsterdam, Dubai and Singapore.

Vidis – Silence Please!(GPMCD058)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2013 by E.N.

vidis silence pleaseLithuanian DJ and producer Vidis has a history of strong influence on the worldwide front. Together with his friend and partner Mario they are known as Mario & Vidis. The duo con-stantly rewrite House definitions, setting standards and pushing boundaries in all directions. Vidis’ Get Physical debut is in the form of a compilation, but not like any you’ve heard before. We present: “Silence Please!”.

“This is the first ever international compilation showcasing the Vilnius House scene and its most creative and inspiring personalities and moments in form of musical tracks. The working title is ‘Silence Please!’. The goal is to catch everyone by surprise. Yes! That would be an ultimate goal and achievement – to raise a few eyebrows and to produce some chin scratch-ing. To make people realize a very young, really small, but unique House scene exists hidden somewhere far away from the big noise and hype of New York, London or Berlin.”

“The compilation consists of 100% exclusive material,” explains Vidis, “New and unreleased tracks from top Lithuanian House acts – Mario & Vidis, Mario Basanov, Downtown Party Net-work, Few Nolder and Darius Vaikas. Unreleased remixes and edits of Fink, Jazzanova, Pompeya, Richard Davis and Ernesto. I did my best to represent the finest we have talent wise, to get as much exclusive material as possible, to get the right balance of unreleased and cutting edge stuff with some already “classic” moments of ours, to combine locally pro-duced stuff with remix work and cooperations of Swedish, American, Russian, British, French and German artists, and to show this way extent, potential and appeal of our musical vision.”

“It’s not just another compilation representing some hot tracks of now or a collection of tried and tested hooks and melodies, it’s a document and a statement in some respects – the first proper representation of emerging sound and the scene from the unlikely territory. There were a few more names I wanted to represent and a few more tracks I wanted to include but they wouldn’t fit genre, mood or tempo wise. I like eclectic selections, but this time I wanted it to be a proper House mix with constant flow and integrity. Also something close to a real DJ set of mine.”

“This is the most important fulfillment in my line of musical work so far. For the first and the most I’m a big music fan, a protagonist of nightlife and dance music culture and an apt advo-cate of my own city and the scene behind it. This compilation combines all of these together. I strongly believe that community and sharing are still the most vital and pivotal elements of dance music culture. This is not only about my musical vision, taste or mixing skills here, but also about sharing musical stories of my friends and colleagues, spreading the love for our city, presenting our own version of House – this strange mixture of melancholia, naivety and pop sensibilities.”

So without further delay, we invite you to enjoy “Silence Please!”

Future Disco Vol. 6 Night Moves

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2013 by E.N.

Future_Disco_06_Future Disco welcomes in the New Year and a new age with its sixth episode, ‘Night Moves’. After more than half a decade of procuring and presenting their worldwide events and music series that forecast the ultimate in dancefloor magicit has become the ultimate chaperon into aural addictions.

Pitching the talents of current virtuosos against rising stars, ‘Night Moves’trawls definitive releases from as yet unknown artists and frames music that is familiar from the first listen.

Miguel Campbell opens the collection with ‘Not That Kind Of Girl’, a fresh Daft Punk inspired cut from his recent Hot Creations albumNeedwant talent Mario Basanov follows with his remix of the Motor CitySoul synth villain, ‘Playground’ and PBR Streetgang’s Bonar Bradberry, who is a staple for the Future Disco series, pays homage to early disco with the captivating ‘Loose Grip’, a tactile record ripe with boogie flavour.

Newcomers Monte and Lazaro Casanova both step up to the task with bass-infused rhythms and sharp snares marking where the night begins to deepen in intensity. An exclusive Future Disco edit of a/jus/ted melts the mood with chiming rhythms and 90s inspired vocals before the biggest artists on the project Groove Armada slow things down with a bomb set deep in the underground, ‘Always Take Me Higher’.

‘Night Moves’ highlights the rise of the females in 2012 with cuts from Laura Jones’ Love In Me’ (remixed by perhaps the most successful artist of the year, Maceo Plex) alongside Crosstown Rebels latest talent  Francesca Lombardo and the notorious Kim Ann Foxmann’s with her huge Needwant release ‘Return It’. Each made big waves in 2012 and are set to climb higher with album projects lined up in 2013.

Crazy P’s epic anthem ‘Heartbreaker’ climbs to the pinnacle of the party and exclusive tracks from Cosmic Kids and Satin Jackets steer it to a fulfilling conclusion.

‘Night Moves’ illuminates that the Future Disco flair for handpicking talent continues to mature, as it maps out an enticing ride into a night full of desire and pursuit.

Future Disco spent the summer of 2012 in Ibiza holding a residency at the biggest event on the island, Carl Cox at Space. They regularly host events at worldwide destinations such as Amsterdam and Helsinki, and are a bona fide tastemaker in a saturated musical landscape.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on January 9, 2013 by E.N.

lovesystem croatia
Love System is a brand new European festival taking place just outside the beautiful Croatian town of Petrcane, tucked into the Adriatic coastline. The vision is to create an immersive experience for avid followers of house music and all its various guises. Love System takes place in the never-before-used Punta Radman wood. The shaded, intimate site contains a maze of bars, stages and chill-out areas nestled in between the trees. Venture further into the wood and, without a building in sight, punters spill out onto the coast where the main stage lies floating over the Adriatic. Here, festival-goers will have the opportunity to dance the day and night away to the beat of electronic music’s elite, caressed by the afternoon summer sun or the blissful Croatian night-time. Shonky, Bicep, Ralph Lawson, Mario Basanov, Ben Pearce and Finnebassen are just some of the names to grace the floating stage.

In true Croatian style, Love System wouldn’t be complete without a boat party, so we have decided to bring you eight. Hosted by some of the most esteemed labels and party brands in the UK, including Jaunt, Underground, Kumasi and Bad Apple, the Love System fleet sets sail twice daily. Catch George Fitzgerald representing his ManMakeMusic label alongside Trikk, roll up for Ben Pearce and the Tom Demac Live show with Micron, indulge yourself with French house groover Shonky on the 2020Vision cruise, or see UK funky don Ossie together with Berliner Sven Weisemann smash up the Flux boat.

Love System is more than just a festival; it is a holiday as well. There is a range of beautiful apartments and villas just minutes from the site, allowing revellers all the comforts and luxuries they could want. Alternatively, camping is available next to the site for those looking to enjoy the Croatian summer. Travel packages including transfers from Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle to London airports, and coaches to the site, are available to make booking your time at Love System as easy as possible. Zadar is the closest Croatian airport and is just 15 minutes from the festival site with return flight prices from the UK currently around £120, and new direct routes from Liverpool and East Midlands airports to Zadar launch at the beginning of April. Split and Zagreb are the other two closest Croatian airports.

The Love System pre-party takes place on the evening of Wednesday 29th May, before 4 full days and nights of music begin on the festival site from 11am on Thursday 30th May. Love System boat parties run from 1pm-5pm and 6pm-10pm daily between the Thursday and Sunday, and Monday is chill time!

Love System is the connoisseur’s festival: forward-thinking music, mindblowing Adriatic coastline setting, bespoke boat parties, branded after parties, luxury accommodation, and the Croatian summer. With tickets limited to just 800, make sure you bag yours now to avoid any disappointment. Early Bird tickets are on sale now priced at only £59. Roll on the Summer of Love!

Future Disco Volume 5 Downtown Express Compiled & Mixed by Sean Brosnan

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2011 by E.N.

Marking the year where disco reached the masses and bore many new offshoots and fusions, the award-winning Future Disco series celebrates with its fifth episode ‘Downtown Express’ carefully crafted by Sean Brosnan.

In 2011 disco became yet more engulfed into its musical siblings. Its intrinsic sounds were in a constant state of flux, typical of the ever-changing beast dance music. The new breed of disco brought the arrival of basslines from artists such as Maxxi Soundsystem and Maceo Plex and further merged it with contemporary house music.

‘Downtown Express’ is a celebration of this that goes the distance to champion the best releases from a sea of new talent to embrace the genre such as David August, Benoit & Sergio and Tiger & Woods, who were all equally as likely to break records on traditional disco labels as they were techno imprints such as Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels and Hot Creations in 2011. These records broke the existing rules, bringing samples and elements from disco roots with their own current interpretation, in line with the Future Disco established vision.

The Future Disco series is a barometer for new and future sounds, mapping connections and hinting at where the key artists are headed in relation to the wider musical movement. Joining the dots between the year’s biggest pop stars Metronomy, to new faces such as Mano Le Tough, and established artists alongside those are reaching fever pitch includingMaceo Plex.  

‘Downtown Express’ is a powerful 80s boogie electronic trip engulfing all on a non stop late night party vibe. As ever, Future Disco brings together key tracks and future hits such as Miguel Campbell Something Special’ (Best Track DJ Mag Best Of British Awards), alongside unheard cuts from Maxxi Soundsystem ‘There’s No Love’ and his remix of Bonar Bradberry.

The mix revisits staple artists that the series gave early recognition to and have gone on to become big talents including Crazy P and Tensnake, as well as young burgeoning talent from the Needwant family, Bonar Bradberry and Mario Basanov in his epic Metronomy remix.

Now a global brand synonymous with style and substance, the Future Disco residencies continue to grow at Space in Ibiza and Ministry Of Sound in London while their one off events are gaining momentum across Asia, America and Europe. Their monthly radio show is still perceived as a voice for breaking new records to its expanding diverse audience.

Future Disco has mapped the reemergence of the disco phenomena over its five year history. Garnering titles such as iTunes compilation of the year, it is a voice for anyone seeking knowledge, comfort and pleasure from a genre that has come to eclipse not only a style, but also a desire to dance.

Back On Track / Nicholas: Nu Groove

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2011 by E.N.

Young but with a classic touch, the young Italian Nicholas is the perfect culprit to rewind the past two decades of Nu Groove and put them ‘Back On Track’.

Back On Track’ takes a snapshot of a time when house music was putting down roots, its earthy textures raw and engulfing. Nu Groove was at the forefront at that moment in time, pledging its allegiance to a new type of music. Now Needwant revisits its zenith asking the young luminary Nicholas to give his own interpretation on Nu Groove’s classic releases. The sound is intuitive, eager and highly satisfying encompassing the early throws of garage and deep and primal elements of vintage house. Featuring mysterious artists such as Lisa Lee, Equation, and Roqui, names that lack a current identity and have been lost to the vaults of time… until now.

There are few record labels that manage to leave a lasting imprint on the musical landscape and deserve celebration some twenty years on. Then, Nu Groove is unlike other record labels. A record label and musical institution based in New York, Nu Groove was created in the early throws of house music’s birth, 1988 and closing up sometime in 1992. In those four short years the label went on to give the world over one hundred releases. The output was unpredictable, the styling simple and the sound the pure cream of the underground. Never trying to please or adhere to one sound, the music crossed genres like they didn’t exist. It was everything a record label should and shouldn’t have been.

Behind the seminal imprint were two talented twins, Ronnie & Rheji Burrell, who left behind a pop career to join the label and become the creators of the majority of Nu Groove’s catalogue. These two producers almost singlehandedly produced nearly one hundred releases on the label, a task almost unheard of today and another testament to just how different the Nu Groove concept was.

Fast forward to the present and there is a resurgence of the sounds from this time. Classic house music is being replayed by a cross section of new rising contemporary artists from across the board such as Jamie Jones and Julio Bashmore. A younger and fresher audience are finding inspiration from this period, searching back to the era where the sound was simpler. One label keeps emerging in this pursuit is Nu Groove.

‘Back On Track’ is an interpretation on the back catalogue of Nu Groove brought up to date the young Italian native, Nicholas. These tracks are Nicholas’s choices, not driven by rarities (though many are). This is a time capsule, an introduction and an exploration via the ears of Nicholas.

Needwant first discovered the 26 year old Nicholas through his own self styled edits reinventing the classic sounds of the nineties. His innovative use working with the early dawns of house music have led to countless remixes and reedits on many labels. Highlights include the Robert Owens and Mario Basanov remixes for Needwant. His emphasis is on content not technology. Diva samples commanding soul and warm inviting synthesizers breath heavily in his tracks. His track construction gives life to the forgotten energy of the classic house sound and he has slowly but surely been making a deep impression on the current electronic music movement.

Nicolas was inspired by the likes of Romanthony, Pal Joey, Kerri Chandler, Chez & Trent’s Prescription and Nu Groove Records so was an ideal choice for this project. It’s rare for such a young DJ to develop a clearly deep love for classic house music but this comes down to the Red Zone Club in Perugia, Italy, the place where Nicholas first became aware of this music and developed his love for the style.

Nicholas presents the forgotten records from the Nu Groove catalogue on‘Back On Track’ like only he knows how, telling his own story of the early days of house music and keeping the spirit alive for a genre that continues to heavily influence dance music today.

Label: Needwant
Cat no: NEEDCD004
Web: www.needwant.co.uk

In a time where the compilation market is saturated and stale, Future Disco has achieved a cult following across the worlds of music and fashion over its three years of releases. Awarded iTunes album of the year 2009, they have crafted a winning formula exploring the boundaries of contemporary house and disco music achieved through each creative mix. 

Tracklist
  1. Escort – Cocaine (Greg Wilson Version)
  2. Midnight Magic – Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix)
  3. Stefano e Bene feat. Hard Ton – Why Your Love feat. Hard Ton (Katzbatz Remix)
  4. Holy Ghost – I Will Come Back (Classixx Acapulco Nights Version)

  16. Kaine feat. Kathy Diamond – Love Saves the Day (Original Mix)
  17. The C90s – Shine A Light (Flight Facilities Remix)

The fourth edition ‘Neon nights’ is more mystifying and seductive than its older siblings, giving heavy nods to the inspirational eras of the 80’s and early nineties as well as the glamour of New York, handpicking a handful of current East coast stars including Escort, Jacques Renault, Storm Queen and Holy Ghost.

Moving forward from the earlier investigation of the funk of the 70s, Future Disco illustrates a present desire for the sounds of the last two decades. Synth lines and pianos are the order of the day as sultry boogie and early dance beats are thrown into the spotlight.

Some old hands join new faces for ‘Neon Nights’, with leading figures Hot Chip, The Revenge and 2020Soundsystem laid alongside exclusive tracks from Mario Basanov and Bonar Bradberry, both tipped for big things in 2011. Future Disco was one of the first to give recognition to global success stories such as Tensnake and Aeroplane and continues to discover new talents and trends through each episode.

Standout tracks appear from Storm QueenLook Right Through’, an exclusive to Future Disco from Morgan Geist of Metro Area and the glamorous Midnight MagicBeam Me up (Jacques Renault remix)’, whose peak disco sound has found love from everyone from Erol Alkan to Optimo and Faze Action.

Reinventing the meaning of a disco anthem, ‘She’s Bad’ from Bad Rabbits made a big impact earlier this summer on limited release on (one half of Wolf + Lamb) Gadi Mizrahi’s Double Standard records, and appears as a treat for those yet to discover it. Kaine feat Kathy Diamond’s Balearic inspired ‘Love Saves The Day’ brings the closing moments to life with a fusion of its original and the sublime Soul Clap remix, a great conclusion to this seamless mix of musical fruits.

Since the inception of Future Disco, the audience for its sound has spread to the far reaches of the globe, with artists such as Wolf + Lamb in New York, Soul Clap in Boston and The Revenge in the UK enjoying praise from all camps of musical persuasion. As the sound moves from the back room to the main dancefloor, Future Disco has forged a global identity, identifying and defining these musical trends.

The Future Disco global series of events continues to broaden their horizons, completing a strong summer residency at Space in Ibiza, a special ADE event in Amsterdam and continuing bi-monthly at London’s notorious Ministry Of Sound 103, Events in Singapore, Dubai, Belfast and many others are penned for 2011 with a world tour scheduled to coincide with this album release.

Carefully re-edited and mixed by Sean Brosnan, each episode comes into creation through the skilled cutting, splicing, extension and arrangement of some of the finest hand-picked records from the past, present and future, resulting in a completely unique mix. Released on Needwant records, an imprint that has established itself as a pioneer of cutting edge house and disco grooves and will be showcasing a wonderful array of new talent in 2011.

Pursuing more of an uptempo house vibe in this edition, Future Disco still taps firmly at the heart of disco and its fusion with contemporary underground dancefloor music.
