“Live In London” features nearly 5 hours of amazing music across a bumper 4xCD set from John Digweed, recorded live in the mix at the recent Bedrock Anniversary Party at Fire & Lightbox, London. You will hear more than 50 tracks and remixes from some of the world’s best underground producers, including the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Tiga, Deetron, Gabriel Ananda, Robert Babicz, Max Cooper, Ben Pearce, jozif, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Luca Bacchetti, Todd Bodine, Pig & Dan, Butch, Paul Ritch, Justin Martin, Catz ‘n Dogz, SIS, Smash TV, Julian Jeweil, Subb-an, Phonogenic, Technasia, Guy J, Heiko Laux & Diego Hostettler and many others. “Live In London” is a flawless journey through some of the most exciting current electronic dance music, all programmed and mixed to perfection, forming the perfect snapshot of one of the best Bedrock events of the year.

The Bedrock Anniversary parties in London are always truly special as it feels like coming home to me. For some reason this party seemed extra special, Fire in Vauxhall is a new venue for us and it has a labyrinth of rooms under the arches which allowed us to feature a line up that most festivals would be happy with! There was definitely a magical vibe in the air when I arrived. I had heard that people had travelled from Russia, America, all over Europe, even New Zealand, to be there. The party was perfect for me, the amazing international crowd created an incredible atmosphere all night long. I love DJing more than ever these days, so to get to play for over 8 hours to an up for it crowd like that, was just pure heaven. This is the first time I have released a 4xCD live mix from one of my gigs and I hope it brings back some great memories for those who were there. If you couldn’t make it, turn the lights down low, turn the volume up loud and I think you’ll understand. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did playing.” – John Digweed

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

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2012 by E.N.


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.

Pig & Dan – Emotions/Let The Show Begin – Bedrock

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2012 by E.N.

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), whose distinctive mixture of influences has given them a sound that is both innovative and easily recognizable, since they first joined forces back in 1999. Right now, it seems like there’s a non-stop flow of success in the air around these two musical madmen. Their last Bedrock release (“Machines”) in April 2012 was a Beatport Top 5 smash and now “Emotions”/”Let The Show Begin” raises the bar even higher.
From the twisted vocalized intro to the deep, deep bass and subtle synth hooks and drops, “Emotions” is, quite simply, a soulful electronic masterpiece. Whilst “Let The Show Begin”, with its quirky nod to Mr. Mojo Risin’, displays a more direct and intense percussive edge to the powerhouse Pig & Dan arsenal.
Once again, it’s hats off to Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with each release. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve by introducing new talent and pushing established artists to their creative best, is something that should be applauded.

Pig & Dan and Mark Reeve – Turbulence / Violets (Bedrock Digital)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2012 by E.N.

If you’re talking about exciting underground producers, two of the first names out of the hat should always be Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan (aka Pig&Dan), since 1999 their distinctive mixture of influences has given them a sound that is both innovative and easily recognizable. Their Sonic Society label and relationship with Sven Vath’s Cocoon family have led to global respect for this dynamic duo.
Recently, they teamed up with English ex-pat Mark Reeve (and Malta’s Dean Demanuele) to create a truly international melting pot of hip-swinging, groovy rhythms on ‘Machines’, which is a standout track on Bedrock’s stellar ‘Underground Sound Of Miami’ compilation, currently sitting at No.5 in the Beatport Techno Chart. Now they return with two more highly anticipated, stunning tracks from those exciting collaborative sessions.
‘Turbulence’ (also featured on John Digweed’s forthcoming ‘Live In Cordoba’ triple CD package and 2×12″ Ltd Vinyl – out on Bedrock 30/04/12) is a wonderfully wobbly, percussive masterclass, while ‘Violets’ is a snappy, hook driven tech builder that shouldn’t be missed.
Once again, it’s hats off to Bedrock for raising the bar even higher with each release. In this day and age to not only survive as an independent label, but also to flourish and constantly evolve, bringing forward new and also exciting established talent, is something that should be applauded.
