Joss Moog -Late Nite Beats(Album)14th June via Robsoul Recordings(Preview)

Joss Moog Late Nite BeatsJoss Moog releases his debut album ‘Late Nite Beats’ on 14th June through Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings. The Parisian has impressed with his releases on Robsoul since 2006, beginning with the much sought-after Room 25 EP, and has subsequently built up a discography including music for Magnetic, Maracuja, Kinjo, Exprezoo, Minority and Synchrophone.

Late Nite Beats showcases Moog’s skill at blending live instrumentation with soul-filled samples and beats from the vintage house boxes — it’s deep and musical, intricately crafted, but with more than enough bite to bump the dance floor, as tracks like Late Nite Beat, Mama Hold My Hand and Call Me testify. Moog’s love of funk and soul are in heavy evidence, with numerous departures from House on the tracks including Childhood Fancy, Last Chapter and Sweet Mary.  And there’s a clear French touch, with Which Flavour, That Woman and Second Chance delivering late 90’s styled filtered grooves that Daft Punk et al would be proud of.

A recently released four-track album sampler drew DJ support from a varied group of established players and current hot names — Rolando, Danny Howells, Kraak & Smaak, Radio 1’s Mosca, Gramophonedzie, Giom, Noir, Rolando, Moodymanc, Jimpster, Robert Owens, Diesel (X-Press 2), Mousse T, Ramon Tapia and Reboot just the tip of the iceberg.

James Dexter - System Check EPUpcoming London producer James Dexter joins the Lost My Dog ranks with a four tracker taking in slow-burning deep groovers through to bumping, funked-up cuts.  His ‘System Check EP’ is a perfect representation of the sound LMD has pushed over the past eight years and another example of the label not being afraid to work with talented producers in the early stages of their careers.

At 25 years old Dex has already amassed a number of noteworthy releases including tracks and remixes on Om Records, Salted Music, Nervous Records, Beatdown Music and Static Audio.  His remix of Miguel Migs’ single ‘Tonight’ reached the number three spot in the Traxsource Top 100, with his own single ‘Give Me Something’ on Migs’ Salted Music not far behind. He has also recently released a track on Shades Of Gray’s Beef Records and has something in the works for Large, alongside remixes for Solid Ground and Bump Trax.

Already Dex can count a number of high profile DJs as fans – Fred Everything, Moodymanc, Karol XVII & MB Valence, Evren Ulusoy, Giom, CJ Mackintosh, Dale Howard and several more are all supporters of his music.

Arttu – Just This One Time (Preview Clips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2011 by dk

Turquoise Blue Recordings follow up their highly rated previous two releases with Finnish producer Arttu and his ‘Just This One Time’ EP. The title track opens with some chunky French-inspired strutting house, while ‘Soul Monk Funkker’ and ‘Stretch Yo Mind’ add some main room tech house moods and acidic touches to the EP.

Remixes come courtesy of Alex Arnout who brings a mellower, late-night feel to his remix of ‘Just This One Time’. Tom Ellis’s successful debut EP for the Newcastle based label earns him a remix spot here with a tribal tech workout, making this a package sure to continue the big name support Turquoise Blue had already garnered from DJ’s such as Clive Henry, Moodymanc, Motorcitysoul, Shur-I-Kan, Florian Kruse and more.

Finnish producer Arttu (now based in Portugal) is the new name being used by Lump.  2011 has seen Arttu remix for 4Lux and release original material on Philpot.  As Lump, he has worked with a range of labels including Contexterior, Morris Audio and Rrygular.

From DJ’ing in bars in Spain to releases alongside Bugz In The Attic and then onto establishing the Dogmatik imprint which launched the career of Maya Jane Coles, Alex Arnout (aka Ceramix, Da Lunartiktz, Dread Poets, Output) is a name many will know all about from his releases on his own label as well as Hot Waves, One, Vitalik and Fear Of Flying.

Tom Ellis returns to Turquoise Blue following his ‘You Shaped’ EP that kicked off the labels catalogue back in September.  The Welsh producer has been making a name for himself lately with music on Moon Harbour, Archipel, Minordust, Floppy Funk, 22 Digit and Logistic Records as well as his own Trimsound imprint.

Turquoise Blue hails from near to Newcastle upon Tyne and has been founded by Neil Harker.  The label is inspired by underground house stalwarts such as 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, soon followed by Ruthit, MANIK and Boris Horel.

Half of Freaks (with Luke Solomon) Justin Harris returns to Baker Street Recordings for his second EP.  The first came in 2007 and Harris has also remixed Matt Prehn and Jacob in the interim period.  Demarkus Lewis also makes a return to the Leeds label having remixed Bang Bang back in 2009.

The Tracks

2: Music’s My Religion (Deez Preach 2 Teach Mix) [Demarkus Lewis]
3: People 2011

It’s deep, driving peak-time underground house music in the trademark Baker Street style, with the odd recognisable vocal. May evoke thoughts of big warehouse spaces complete with yellow and black striped pillars.  Demarkus Lewis adds some squelch and ups the preacher factor.

Justin Harris has been active as a DJ business since 1987 and has been producing since 1994 in collaboration with Luke Solomon and under the names Robotic Movement, Free soul (with Diesel) and Oliloqui for labels like Classic, Phono, 20/20 Vision, and SSR. Harris is probably best known as half of the duo Freaks (again a collaboration with Luke Solomon) and their acclaimed Music For Freaks label – both for diehard deephouse fans as for adventurous electronic music lovers.

In a little over a decade Demarkus Lewis has released over 100 singles and remixes, staying true to his roots in the underground sound whether it be deep soulful house or the heaviest of techno/tech-house outings. Known for his ability to go deep while maintaining the energy to keep the dance floors moving, he has proven to be diverse artist, with releases for Bluem, Aesoteric, Flat & Round, Black Vinyl, Slip ‘n’ Slide and several others alongside his own Grin imprint.

Since it’s launch in 2006 Baker Street has grown into one of the UK’s leading deep and tech house labels appearing consistently in the sets of DJs like Laurent Garnier, Inland Knights, Dirt Crew and Luke McKeehan and on the pages of the dance music press. The label has previously released EPs featuring music by Jay Tripwire, Moodymanc, Sei A, Matt Prehn, Murray Richardson and many more.
