Murray Richardson delivers his 3rd release on Baker Street Recordings with the ‘Memory Loss EP’. Two original tracks showcase the trademark Richardson deep, driving, tech sounds that have made him a global success and, in the words of iDJ, “a stalwart of the UK scene for over a decade”. Remixes come from label boss Paul Hardy and McKai and the vastly experienced Gareth Whitehead (Bulletdodge, Lost My Dog), who offers a little more main room energy.

Starting his production career in 1999 with 20:20 Vision, Murray Richardson has gone on to release music with Low Pressings, Creative Music, Magnitude, Kickin Records, Nordic Trax, Sensei Recordings and featured previously on Baker Street. “An ethos of quality over quantity”, according to a glowing Mixmag review, has always been key to Murray’s success as a producer, whilst building up relationships with the most respected labels around. As a DJ and promoter of the renowned Rebel Waltz events, his hectic touring schedule has made him one of the most respected figures in deep and tech house circles, particularly in his homeland of Scotland and his adopted homes of Spain and Brazil.

Paul Hardy is a DJ and producer who doesn’t court the limelight. He has appeared on some of the world’s most influential record labels such as 2020 Vision, .dotbleep, Lost My Dog, Undertones and Deepology and has worked with some of the world’s most respected artists including Random Factor, Brett Johnson & DJ Heather,King Cosmic, Sei A, Sasse, Jay Shepheard and Miles Maeda. As if that’s not enough, he also runs Leeds-based Baker Street Recordings. His partnership with Mckai is relatively new, with outings on 1999 Recordings, 22 Digit Recordings and Baker Street in recent times.

Gareth Whitehead is a respected producer, engineer, remixer, DJ and artist that has established his own signature brand of deep, dubby tech-house and minimal. As a label owner he set up techno label Edit/Select with Soma legend Anthony Scott (Percy X) and in 2007 established his own label Bulletdodge Records. Gareth has also released music on labels such as Lost My Dog, Naked Lunch Records, Parallel 125, Cubism and Safari Numerique, receiving support form the likes of Joris Voorn, Slam, Tony Rohr, Anja Schneider and Ricardo Villalobos.

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
1: Music’s My Religion
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.
