Silkie ‘The Lost Tapes’ (DEEP MEDi) (12th August)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2013 by dk

Silkie_The_Lost_Tapes_artworkDEEP MEDi are proud to present Silkie’s ‘The Lost Tapes Vol. 1’, set for release in August. Further exploring a crossover between interstellar bass-driven sounds and more “melodic jazz-infused musings”, this special six track EP was curated from digging deep into his computer archives; discovering music that even his close circle of producers know nothing about.

He refers to DJing as “my second studio”. Heavily in demand as a DJ, Silkie takes these opportunities to test new experiments in his sound arsenal, judging the reaction to his music and picking which ones hit the mark. With London’s DMZFWD and Rinse FMas his training ground, he’s taken his sound to his loyal fans far and wide, collecting passport stamps across USA, Australia, Japan and Europe.

With eight singles and his two ‘City Limits’ albums released on the label to date, Silkie’s contribution to DEEP MEDi has been outstanding. ‘The Lost Tapes Vol. 1’ is no exception.

Release Date: 12th August 2013
Format: Vinyl / Digital
Catalogue number: MEDI072

Robert Owens & Tone Control – Starting With Me (inc James Johnston remix)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2012 by dk

Tone Control return with house music vocal legend, Robert Owens for a steppin’, bass led mantra for the dance floor. Tone Control bring in soulful house star, Sean McCabe on Moog, Rhodes and Organ to complete “Starting With Me”. Working the analogue delays, “Stuck On Loop” is a dark and serious dubbed out excursion. Glaswegian producer, James Johnston has been making big waves for vinyl loving, deep house heads recently – he turns in a heavy chorded, bumpin’ dub remix to complete this new single, the 12th release on Tone Control Music.

Tone Control are Marcus Harris and Simon Finnegan. The British production duo have been progressively releasing their own brand of electronic soul for over 6 years appealing to house music and leftfield DJ’s alike. Following the release of their critically acclaimed “Illusion” single, much lauded by Theo Parrish and Kerri Chandler, the duo have gone on to find wider appeal with their smash “Take Me Away” ft. Adeola Ranson and “Without Your Love” ft. James B. Coleman – remixed by DJ Spinna and played by DJs globally including ‘Lil Louis and Kenny Dope.

Robert Owens has played an instrumental part in defining House Music history. Robert was already DJing in Chicago when he met Larry Heard to form Fingers Inc. with Ron Wilson in 1985. Their output included “Bring Down the Walls”, and the monumental “Can You Feel It”. Robert’s subsequent solo releases, led to the classic “Tears” with Frankie Knuckles & Satoshi Tomiie in 1989. Worldwide chart success followed in the 90’s with “I’ll Be Your Friend”. Robert was cited as “The voice of house music” by Mixmag. Since then Robert has worked with an incredible list of influential artists including Photek, London Elektricity, Sandy Rivera, Coldcut, Quentin Harris, and recently Tevo Howard and Kai Alce to name a few. His recent LP’s for Compost Records demonstrate his continued inspiration and artistic longevity, maintaining his reputation as the man who breathed life and soul into House Music.

Subvader aka Peter Wiley is a 20 yr-old bass producer/DJ lightwarped in from the distant galaxies of Michigan, USA. Always enflamed with passion, his sci-fi-sex vibes draw heavily from the UK funky movement, crunk and Chicago house as well as from the refined side of dubstep and garage. His recent work is receiving support from the likes of Melé, Distal, Dillon Francis, Kastle, Reid Speed, LOL Boys and Monki of Rinse FM. After an inclusion on our Think Tank Volume One release and a stellar remix of Eddie Hoey’s debut tune “Tonight,” we proudly present Subvader’s first full fledged offering on our label!
