Rich Wakley ‘Time To Jack’ EP [Definition:Music]

By | Audio, News | No Comments

ricj_wakley

DMU025 – ‘Time To Jack’, comes from Rich Wakley this winter, with 2 originals and remixes by Raffa FL and Jey Kurnis to sweep the floor.

Leeds native Wakley has forged a career in house music spanning all its iterations: sometimes deep, sometimes techy and sometimes just plain house. He proves he has electronic music in his blood with various projects whether it’s topping the Beatport charts with releases on labels like Hot Creations or memorable sets performed around the world, from Tresor in Berlin,Space in Ibiza, Ultra in Miami and Ministry in London, to big festival stages at Burning Man, Sonar, Kazantip and Exit.
Right from the beginning Rich serves up a strong beat while he proceeds to lay out the essence house music both literally and figuratively. Raffa FL takes this into a deeper and wetter vibe with his remix of the title track.

Rich quickly dives deeper with second original, ‘Throwin Shapes’; making use of gritty bass and great synth work. A solid track with a very special vibe. Representing the other side of the scale, Jey Kurmis lightens the pressure a bit and delivers an itchy techhouse remix to balance out the EP nicely.

Tracklist:

A1 Time To Jack (Original Mix)
A2 Throwin’ Shapes (Original Mix)

B2 Throwin’ Shapes (Jey Kurmis Remix)

Phil Dark – Morning in Pigalle

By | Audio, News | No Comments

phil_dark

Since finding his home at ‘Le Pigallion’, Parisian dance music stalwart Phil Dark has gone from strength to strength. As creative director of the French club, Dark has become exceptionally well versed in the field of artistic curation and creation.

His latest three-tracker, out now on Future Relics, exhibits this aptitude greatly. “Morning in Pigalle” emerges not only as homage to the district itself, but as a direct reflection of emotions retained and moments lost.

The title track bubbles with a heavy garage feel. Scissored vocals spring through short gaps in the track’s erratic drum pattern as title is reaffirmed by a sun-up soundtrack, assured and confident in nature.

Marcelo Cura steps in to conclude affairs, with a stripped back midnight groove that rapidly builds in strain only to ‘release’ itself (as the vocal suggests), giving way to a myriad of high pitch toms rattling at frequencies beyond recognisability.

A seminal Parisian addition to an already seminal back catalogue, “Morning in Pigalle” moves its audience beyond the borders of its locale and into an international club territory of mutual respect, love and understanding.

The release is out now.

Raíz feat. Permanent Heartbreak – Absence Of You

By | Audio, News | No Comments

Droid Behaviour offshoot VRV is now only four releases in and is currently making almighty waves across the value-baron and overly-populated worldwide dance music landscape.

And Californian duo Raíz are by no small measure responsible.

Heading up the fourth release and fearlessly injecting a concoction of tastefully polished kicks and distorted hats into their tracks, Raiz stumble upon the most finely tuned club music of the last century.

Yet “Absence Of You” is no accident. Its assembly is calculated, its construction formulaic, but ultimately, its intention fulfilled. Three dark, mysterious, jacking club tracks rumble with threatening presence, a frantic and vigorous release already enjoying airplay from some of the world’s most well respected DJ’s.

Permanent Heartbreak, who aided in inaugurating the first VRV release, lend a hand on this one, too. And their influence shines through on track such as “With Me” and “Without You,” which serve to clearly juxtapose one another and appear to convey the same level of craftsmanship and sincerity as heard in previous releases.

As a whole, this EP is VRV’s strongest releases yet, proving that the label, and artists operating under it, are only heading in one direction: up.

The Digital release will be available on 3rd February 2015

Keinemusik announce new compilation EP – ‘Workparty Five’

By | Audio, News | No Comments

Workparty Five

KEINEMUSIK – WORKPARTY FIVE  

Artist: V.A
Title: WORKPARTY FIVE
Label: KEINEMUSIK
Cat: KM025
Release date: 17.11.2014
Labelcode: LC-3543

Marking their 5th anniversary this year Berlin based label Keinemusik celebrate with brand new EP “Workparty Five”. Released on the 17th of November, the collective including David Mayer, &ME, Rampa and Adam Port come together to deliver four seductive new tracks.

As a special treat, and to mark the five year anniversary, the latest EP in the “Workparty” series will be presented across 2 vinyls for the very first time. With the second bonus disk featuring an exclusive rework of each track, in true Keinemusik style.

Kicking things of is Rampa’s “Mod”. A mix of analogue and digital techniques, this track is the unmistakeable floor offensive in the collection. As the percussive slaps and central synth-motif escalate in call and response, its obvious that the “Mod” name is not an abbreviation for “Moderate”.

David Mayer’s “Smoke” on B takes a dry and percussive approach. Although executed in his typical signature sound, focused on the details and all about the subtlety, “Smoke” is a genuine grower of a track. Crackling and rolling in seductive coolness, “Smoke” puffs a wistful herb laced haze into the release.

More percussive energy is to be found on track C when &ME unrolls “Birdland”. Opening with his unmistakable songwriting architecture, he warmly implements analogue elements like bass runs and piano chords dramatizing the piece as it establishes itself as a compelling floor-filler.

For the grand finale, Adam Port summons the legendary Stereo MCs onto his side. For Rob Birch’s vocals alone “Place” has to be regarded as the most anthemic track on the EP. Intertwined with Port’s sensitive instrumentation, the deepness of each beat and the effective sparing of the larger gestures, every element shapes this foreseeable classic as an emotional dance floor favourite
