Gerry Read -Patterns EP (preview)+Download:Dark Arx Podcast #4

DKX003: Patterns EP by Gerry Read
Released 22nd November 2010
DKX003: Patterns by Gerry Read

Gerry Read EP on November 22nd preview

Dark Arx Recordings’ third release comes from new signing Gerry Read, who is already generating huge online buzz. “Patterns EP” showcases his skills across three tracks, each a different lens into his sound. Gerry’s gift is his ability to pull apart the sounds and patterns of ghostly 2-step, house, techno and electronica – and create genuinely original, warm and emotive music.
The track “Patterns” spearheads the EP with a web of delicate percussion,vocal ticks and dub atmospherics, before a charging woodblock drum pattern and locked synth chords launch the track. It’s an usual blend of moody dub atmospherics and euphoric dancefloor energy.
“Dreamer” harks back to first wave dubstep. The track is a game of hold-andrelease,with a stuttering half-step break dropped and cut over a bed of dub patterns. A track for the deeper dances.
“Climb” is an older track of Gerry’s and the missing link between his dancefloor tracks, and his electronic-focussed releases. A wandering bass line and loose-limbed break travel through a sea of lo-fi atmospherics and submerged vocals. Both ghostly and uplifting, it neatly sums up the release.

Bio & Influences
Gerry is now back in the UK after spending several years in Australia. The separation from the UK bass scene has no doubt helped him craft his unique sound, while retaining a deep understanding of his musical influences. Sonically, comparisons range anywhere from Actress to James Blake, with a
love for dusty, crushed, vintage sound. But in his new focus on the dancefloor, Gerry is rubbing up against Martyn and others who can combine sonic warmth with real dancefloor energy.

Dark Arx Recordings
Dark Arx Recordings is a home for artists on the fringes of the dubstep/bass/techno scenes. Previous releases have drawn praise from the likes of Hard Wax, Boomkat, Sonic Router, Bassache, onethirtybpm,
mnmlssgs, Get Some and many others.

Cosmin TRG -Tower Block / Béton Brut (Hemlock Recordings 12″ Vinyl -HEK009)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2010 by dk

TRG drops the bpm but stands tall for his first outing on Hemlock. Eschewing any notion of ‘feminine pressure’ in favour of a new stripped-back, brutalist sound. A- Side ‘Tower Block’ Straight-estate and 808s. This is the sound of Croydon, Sheffield and Detroit past, demolished and re-built in Cosmin’s unique style. On the flip ‘Beton Brut’ Let’s get brutal. An unsteady climb through some seriously dark space towards a pounding climax. Straight-up his most bare and jacking tune to date.

a TRG – Tower Block
b TRG – Béton Brut

Press Release:
We’ve really pulled out the stops on this one. After the first two releases, ‘Tongue Riddim’ (w/ Roska RMX) and ‘Ride It’ (w/ Untold RMX), the third Build plate comes with two unique and original riddims, attracting (as per usual) the support of all your favourite DJs, and a few more besides.

For this third release, stylishly trimmed in a delightful red hue, we have an A side whereby Ginz (of Purple City fame) and label boss Baobinga team up to create their own crunked-up take on the Purple sound. Long time collaborators, their highly accomplished production skills and well established studio rapport are immediately evident in the crunching analogue synth processing, tuffer-than-tuff hip-hop drum patterns, Timbaland-esque percussion and almost-wonky basslines… Not to mention the soaring melodic content and dynamic arrangement. One for the thugs, but also their gyal dem. And it’s all about the gyal dem.

Meanwhile, on the AA (and it really is a double A), Baobinga flexes on a different tip with Romania’s very own Cosmin TRG. Fresh from releases on Tempa and Rush Hour, ‘I Get Ruff’ was built through the swapping of files from Bristol to Bucharest and back again. Taking as a starting point Cosmin’s new take on house and funky, this 128bpm smasher adds layers of Baobinga’s exuberant bass and percussion, with TRG’s trademark nod to classic chopped up garage vocals providing the icing on the dancefloor-friendly cake. Pure energy, but zero cheese.

Mungo’s Hi Fi – ‘You can add Mungos to your support list these are the boom!! Gonna play these both tonight!’
Martyn – ‘I like the TRG and you one’
Simbad – ‘Bruv that I Get Ruff is a baaaaaaaaaaanger!!!! Fuckin siiiiiiick dancefloor mayhem, another winner for my box yo, you rock!’
Untold – ‘Been dropping I Get Ruff tune in my sets – it’s a tough beat and sounds big on a system’
Rossi B – ‘I Get Ruff is heavy’
Starkey- ‘Played the Ginz collab on the radio show Monday’
Hot City – ‘I Get Ruff is KILLER!!’
Bok Bok – ‘I like the you and Ginz track a lot man, managed to download it the other night when you gave me the link (club wifi is large, should be standard), had a listen, liked it so i played it and it tore it up. Great tune.’
Sinden – ‘Hey I love both tracks, the one for me is the collab with cosmin, really really good.’
Jackmaster – ‘Yo I played I Get Ruff on Ustream the other night and people were going fucking nuts! It’s really good. You should release that asap. if you don’t, I will 🙂 Defo gonna be a staple in my sets for a long time.’
MJ Cole – ‘Cheers Sam. Loving them all. Especially I Get Ruff – Ruff! Will be spinning this weekend for sure!’
Mumdance – ‘All the Build’s have been great, but this one is the best yet – amazing!’
Mary Anne Hobbs- ‘I love the Cosmin and Baobinga collab’
Kalbata – ‘The Cosmin collab is the one’
Drop The Lime – ‘Yoyoyo!!! Loving these! Biiig nasty bad bwwwaa’
