Gold Code-The Day After (Jonah Sharp Mix)-128 by extramusicnew
Rafael Zevallos-Crowe, aka Gold Code is a respected DJ and promoter in San Francisco since the mid 90s. With the launch of Nude Photo Music, Rafael was driven to refocus his musical interests into production, making great progress in a short time. With two knock-out live PA appearances under his belt – one at San Francisco’s hottest new techno underground “As You Like It”, the second one at Nude Photo Music’s debut Portland event, and releasing a very well received remix for Sergio Gregori, Gold Code follows up with “The Day After”. With this release, Rafael delves deep into the classic electro sound he helped pioneer as a DJ at legendary San Francisco techno and electro nights like Staple, Impulse, Vehicle, Minimal Mondays, Tokyo Electric, and :Code – alongside Single Cell Orchestra, Basskittens, Cybrid, Volsoc, Dave Aju, Twerk, Freaky Chakra, and many other great artists that were part of that scene. The ominous atmosphere, driving bass, classic 808 rhythms, and insistent analog acid come together in a mix that is both retro and timeless.

The Remixes
As Space Time Continuum, Jonah Sharp established himself as a pioneer in the world of electronic music. His remix of The Day After is a deep and melodic analog hardware jam, connecting with the original through a few choice sonic elements. Jon Drukman, aka Basskittens – another respected San Francisco electro pioneer took time out from his current work with Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto to deliver a fierce breaks-tinged electro stomper. Chris Firenze returns with another solid techno mix, once again proving himself as the go-to techno remixer for the label. Closing out the release is a dubby tech-house reinterpretation by label head Audioelectronic.

Derek has already had a spate of successful releases on Thoughtless, Plastic City and Subtrak. “Outside In” is a minimal house track fueled with drums. “Scratch Off Ticket” has an amazing techno-ish vibe with his particular blend all over the place. “Unbirthday Dub”, like the name says, is a deep, dubby original perfect for those early sets or after-hours.

Introducing OMBLIGO, new label debuts album from dubstep and electronica artist Guajira+free download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2010 by J.D.

OMBLIGO proudly presents…Guajira – Aguardiente LP
A powerhouse of dubstep, rock, and Latin music

ARTIST: Guajira
TITLE: Aguardiente LP
LABEL: Ombligo
RELEASE DATE: October, 18th 2010

Formed last Christmas after an impromptu studio jam, Guajira kicks off the newly formed Ombligo imprint with a debut album that defies comparisons. The core of the band includes the best of the Mexico City techno scene – Signal Deluxe’s Jerga and Valeria as well as Monopolar and Razz of Pantamuzik. Together they’ve concocted a hybrid of electronica, Latin music, and guitar psychedelia that combines the forward thinking elements of techno music with the grittiness of an alternative rock band. According to Monopolar, the main idea [was] to deliver an honest album from Latin-American musicians that love USA/European electronic music. We want to be really rooted on what we are, to show that we come from a musically rich part of the world, to reflect the music we hear everyday in our everyday life. But at the same time we reject all kind of clichés associated with the “latino” rhythmic thing. So basically our compositions try to show that balance. We invited singers and lyricists that belong to very authentic underground scenes in Peru and Mexico, so the lyrics also speak about identity, fears and hopes of our society.” The result is an album that stretches beyond national boundaries and taps into the timeless universal that is music’s greatest gift and still manages to grab listeners by the rump and shake it.

“Guajira is something really blended. Mexico and Argentina are (along with Chile) the least African-influenced countries in América, so it’s natural that Signal and Razz have no black elements in their compositions and playing. What I brought to the Guajira’s sound as a Peruvian is the syncopated use of cajón and its very recognizable wooden sound on the tracks “Colibrí “and “Perla” and the “reggaeton/cumbia” pattern on “Atiza”, “Guajira”, and “Isadora”, heavily processed through the electronic sensibility of Jerga and Valeria [SIGNAL DELUXE]. Besides that, a lot of elements from Peruvian music show up along the record (the voices and the lyrics, the use of charango, a little Andean guitar on “Colibrí” and “Tamarindo”). “Tierra Roja” samples a Brazilian Amazonic Indian speaking about deforestation and “Atiza” and “Macondo” both sample Zapatista leaders. In the end, Guajira is really a tight mix of many, many elements that reflect actually how different we are among Latin Americans from different countries and how Mexico can become a sort of melting pot.” – Humberto Polar

GUAJIRA is an electronic band hailing from Mexico City featuring Humberto Polar (Monopolar) (guitar), Jerga (Signal Deluxe) (bass), Valeria (Signal Deluxe) (keyboards and electronics), and Pablo Orsolini (Razz) (percussion). GUAJIRA is a word that can be understood anywhere in Latin America, even though its meaning can change from country to country. GUAJIRA is also the name of a new project in which four talented musicians from three different countries join their skills.
Introducing OMBLIGO

Expect releases this year from the new electronic supergroup GUAJIRA – featuring members of Monopolar and Signal Deluxe, red-hot Mexican rock band CAPO delivers the goods on Un Corazon Se Quema, while underground techno and dubstep sensations SIGNAL DELUXE drop their long-anticipated full length A Morning Filled with One Hundred Million Suns.

We Are Here proudly presents…Issac – Pickles EP

 ARTIST: Issac

TITLE: Pickles EP

LABEL: We Are Here
RELEASE DATE: September 29th, 2010

Issac – The Shield (We Are Here Records)(WAH022) (video)

Issac – July 2010 Live Mix (Essence 03 For Pure.FM)

We Are Here returns with this soon-to-be classic two tracker from veteran producer Issac receiving strong support from both Sasha and John Digweed. “Pickles” focuses on strong melodies and well-structured late night grooves for something that is both danceable as well as emotionally evocative. On the flipside, “The Shield” retains the dark, late night vibe but opts for thundering tribal beats and restrained melodies that straddle the line between epic progressive house and the dirtier, physical strains of tech-house for an extremely memorable track.

MalLabel Music releases The Magic Hour LP by San Francisco dubstep duo Blackheart+Free Downloads

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2010 by J.D.

ARTIST: Blackheart
TITLE: The Magic Hour LP
LABEL: MalLabel Music

Free download Dialers
California is becoming the hub for an emerging mutant strain of dubstep that combines glitch, old school coastal rave breaks, and outdoor sound system culture. Think Burning Man meets Road Warrior and you’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the engine that drives veteran MalLabel recording artists Blackheart. Hailing from San Francisco, this pair of ne’er-do-wells certainly brings the hammer down with tough beats on this seven track mini LP, teaming up with some of the US dubstep scene’s biggest talents Bukkha, Ceeker, and Rastatronics to indulge in a festival of paint peeling bass lines and coarse synth melodies. But Blackheart also has the skills to make it funky, laying down hard core hyphy beats that pay close attention to the ghettotech pioneers from Detroit and the new school cats from Baltimore. But what makes these guys so amazing is their synth work – this album is comprised entirely of melodies sculpted out of pure techno influences – from old R&S to new Perlon; Blackheart hasn’t forgotten that dubstep is still music for dancing. “Creature Funk” opens the album with raunchy, chuggy, driving stepper while “Dialers,” “Madhouse,” and “Kik Mah Boots” provide the straight-forward, driving anthems.

DOWNLINK – “I can’t stop nodding my head, The Magic Hour LP is so fresh! Can’t wait to drop these tunes at my next show.”

6BLOCC – “BLACKHEART = CREEPY, MUSICAL, GRIMEY. I’m definitely droppin this!

DJ Odeed from HD4000 – “Blackheart has done it once again,a diverse album with a little bit of everything for everyone”

Ceeker – “This album is mass hypnoid suggestion.”

Ultraviolet – “Creature Funk is in constant rotation right now, big ups!”

Bukkha – “The Magic Hour LP is a continuous facemelting listen.”

Dub Pirates – “Blackheart holding it down, we love this album, big things.”

Blackheart bio
Formed in 2007, the San Francisco duo BLACKHEART has a unique vision of dubstep filtered through through the classic coastal break sound and the West Coast’s ubiquitous outdoor sound system culture, While their sound may be difficult to categorize, their ability to pack and rock a dance floor is undeniable. Each member has a diverse history in San Francisco’s electronic dance music scene, and as BLACKHEART have taken root in the burgeoning West Coast dubstep scene. The duo already has a discography that spans an handful of some of the US’s most prized labels, including Full Melt, Bassism, Filthy Digital, Savory Audio, and also MalLabel. Their remixes of 6Blocc’s “Bad Boy” and DZ’s “Untitled Facemelter” on MalLabel proved to be dancefloor destroyers, and their latest – “The Magic Hour LP” – is filled from beginning to end with the same vibey West Coast darkness. You can usually catch BLACKHEART live at either a MalLabel or Redline underground event – every 6-8 weeks somewhere around San Francisco. Expect more noise in the future from this rising pair of standouts.

Audioelectronic- Two Trains Running (Nude Photo Music) w/ remixes from Swayzak’s Brun Brown, Caltrop, Chris Firenze+free Extra Promo

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2010 by J.D.

Nude Photo Music proudly presents… Audioelectronic – Two Trains Running [NPM 10008], with remixes by Swayzak’s Brun Brown, Caltrop, and Chris Firenze.

NPM10008 [Digital Only Release]
Audioelectronic – Two Trains Running

Available July 14th, 2010 exclusively on Beatport.

Extra Free download   “Two Trains Running”

Two Trains Running
Gustavo Lanzas – aka Audioelectronic is the driving force behind Nude Photo Music. As Audioelectronic, Gustavo has been writing and performing electronic music for almost 20 years. Working with classic hardware synthesizers and samplers, as well as the latest software, Gustavo defines a sound that lies equally between the spacious sound of Dub, and the emotive electronic anthems of Detroit.

About The Release
“Two Trains Running was a track Iʼd written back in 2000. I came across the session, and was inspired to update it. The end result was quite a bit different, but incorporated most of the original tracks, along with some new tracks recorded from the Waldorf Blofeld and Nord Modular synths. I played this track live for a couple years when I first wrote it, but ended up never finishing it until now. The title refers to a brief but passionate affair between two lovers – the trains running on opposite tracks pass each other on the way to their ultimate destinations, just as eventually the affair comes to an end. Itʼs also a reference to the book of the same title by Andrew Vachss.”

The Remixes
Brun Brown, one half of legendary duo Swayzak, deconstructs the track into its individual elements, and delves deep into bass heavy reverb-drenched dub techno with “Brunʼs Duhb”.

Nude Photo Musicʼs own Dj Caltrop returns with another lush mix paying homage to classic italo and electro sounds, with melodic synths and analog electronic drums.

Closing out the remix is a driving techno-bass mix from one of Portlandʼs rising techno producers, Chris Firenze.

“Cool original – and good remixes – strong release – thanx” – SLAM

“SWAYZAK flavors are always fruity!” – DEEPCHILD

“Superb package here… with the Swayzak being an exceptional stand out. Cheers for it.” – Q-BURNS ABSTRACT MESSAGE

“Quality deepness all around – each mix has its proper time and place; I could see playing all of them in the right setting. Thanks for sending!” – NOAH PRED

“All mixes are superb… really like the original and dj caltrop’s remix” – LUCAS RODENBUSH

“The Swazyak mix is cool” – SAMUEL L. SESSION

“5/5” – DUBFIRE

“Sweet, summery groove. The original for me.” – TYLER STADIUS

“I love the original, full support thanks for sending” – SOUNDSPACE

“Beautiful Swayzak remix! We’ll play for sure” – SIGNAL DELUXE

“Original mix for me, Brun’s dub is really wicked also,big and thick sounding. Will definitely be playing, this is perfect music for the Funktion 1 system..” – JAY TRIPWIRE

“Loving the synth work in all of these. Moody and modern. Feeling the Swayazk remix the most, but they are all stellar!” – ANDROID CARTEL

“All of the tracks are really good. My favourite is the “Swayzak Mix” and l will play this out.” – ANTHONY PAPPA

“Very solid release! I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Two Trains Running’. The original is sexy, deep and hypnotic, feels like a great pool party lounge-type jam. Swayzak’s mix is very dark and cerebral. The Caltrop mix has a nice gallop to it, I like the retro electro melodies and the twist on the original bassline. Chris Firenze is bringing the heat, this track is going into my ‘virtual’ DJ bag for sure! Nice chugging rhythms & futuristic percussion, really cool effects lurking about as well. All tracks on this release would go over well with me if I heard them out, and I plan on playing the Chris Firenze mix. ” – WESLEY DYSART, Steamtown Records

Monopolar ‘Camila’ on Pantamuzik +free download

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2010 by J.D.

Pantamuzik proudly presents… Monopolar- Camila EP [PNTMZK 010], a three track techno extravaganza!

Monopolar – Camila EP

Free download of  “Camila”

Pantamuzik is happy to introduce the new release of one of its biggest artists, Monopolar. After a busy year producing other musicians and working with his dubstep band, Guajira, Humberto Polar returns to the dancefloor with this EP.
Camila (PNTMZK 010) is a clear statement of the constant evolution and hard work of this multifacetic artist. A hypnotic, deep vibe runs across the three tracks.

Camila, the title track, is inspired on his young daughter and the happiness of partying. A killer bassline keeps the groove all along the way and a myriad of tiny microsounds builds a subtle landscape.
Enanos is a stripped down, lean piece of techno. Again, the deepest bass groove acts as the vehicle for a ghostly melody with hypnotic effects.
The last track, Lobo, features a voice sample by the hip hop mexican star Eric El Niño and builds on great rhytmic latin patterns that evolve

Pantamuzik bio:

Pantamuzik is a tribute name to Pantaleón Pantoja, Humberto Polar’s childhood dachshund dog. He lived 20 years and refused to die though everyone wanted him dead and buried. That’s attitude!!!

In 1999 we started Pantamuzik in Bogota, Colombia. Our first album was made for Peru. It was called “Delahouse” Vol. 1 and 2 and it had a 25,000 copies release. Yeah!!! It was mixed by H. Polar, founder and for a while the only member of Pantamuzik.

We released three more albums in Bogota: “Musica de Panta”, a compilation featuring colombian musicians, “Electrodaca” and “Corte Unisex”, all of them DJ mixes by Mono & Camila (La Sala Club´s resident DJs).

From the very start, we focused on finding great house and techno music produced by latin-american musicians, that reflects the vast cultural heritage that we enjoy in this part of the world as well as the best influences of quality dance music.

Then H. Polar moved to México. México City is our home since 2003.

In 2006 H. Polar released his “Micrometrías” EP, under the ST42 moniker. Around that time, Pantamuzik started producing the ALTEREGO parties, having H. Polar as resident DJ and many first-class guests: Matt Nee, from Kompute Music Chicago; Richie Hawtin: Bill Patrick, from Robots New York; the great Diego Ro-k, one of the true pionners and finest techno & tech-house DJs in Argentina, and Samim.

It was good to know the meaning of “success” from the very beginning, just to tell the difference between the simpler cooler “well-being”.

Summarizing, we produce and deliver original latin american dance music. We make remixes. Eventually, we do some parties. We DJ. We live for the music, and we make our living through the music. Music is what we really love, the music that stays in our hearts when we go to sleep and is still there when we wake up.

What we like: everything that is done honestly. Everything that respects the fact that music is an ART form and a CRAFT as well. Music has to be well done, showing respect to thousands of great musicians that preceded us. We love house music. We love techno. We love good sense of proportion. We love to party. We love electronic boldness. For the dance floor or the concert hall, or the bedroom.

The Lowdown
Fade Records returns with the third installment of the Audio Tour series and is proud to introduce New York City’s enigmatic One Of Them, who mans the decks here on Audio Tour Three. One Of Them takes his time to dig deep into the Fade crates and pull together a flawless mix that highlights the label’s recent selections of high quality house and techno. He crafts a spellbinding journey filled with mystery and intrigue that showcases the label’s rich diversity of sounds.

The new mix is also a testament to label founder and world famous DJ Chris Fortier’s impressive A&R skills. Rising stars such as Coalition of the Killing (COTK), Crazy Larry, Signal Deluxe, and Android Cartel have all called Fade home and some of those crucial early releases and remixes make an appearance here. It’s this amazing foresight that makes Audio Tour Three so compelling, but the real attractions are the five productions from One Of Them, a mix of techno stomp and classic sci-fi madness. Couple that with his surgical precision on the decks and it is certain that One Of Them will be one artist to watch in 2010.

Artist Bio
Who is One of Them? We might find out more from what he is not, He is not a spotlight seeker, fame whore or money grabber. Something seemingly uncommon today. There are no gimmicks, no image consultants, no agents, no managers or stylists.

The self-described “stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf-herder in New York City” has released three one-of-a-kind sounding EPs on Fade prior to Audio Tour Three and also works with artist Slow Hand as Male Madame.

No matter what, One Of Them’s focus is always on writing music tabula rasa – with nothing in mind. As he says, “no organic bullshit, no plan.”, just doing it in a Zenlike void of creativity. Although unusual in this current Facebook era and heavy social media onslaughts, this method seems to be working thus far.
