Dovercourt EP

31 Jan


Over the last year I’ve traveled to Canada frequently for gigs and got to know the small but healthy electronic music scene there. Cities like Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto have brought forth many established artists over the past few years, such as Egyptrixx, Azari & III, Basic Soul Unit, Jacques Greene, Lunice and Sixtoo, but 2012 has seen a new breed of no-nonsense house and techno producers come up via labels like Turbo Recordings and Naked Lunch.

This “Dovercourt EP” features four very talented producers: Kevin McPhee, Nautiluss, Gingy and fresh face Bruce Trail. Their tracks are a dedication to their hometown of Toronto. Being removed from the house/techno epicentres of Berlin and London, these four are much less interested in what’s fashionable or trendy, and more in bringing us straight to the point, no frails jacking house music. I’ve been playing these four extensively in my DJ sets, and I hope you will too. So out to Toronto, this one’s for you!

The Uncowl // Swell No Swell EP

29 Jan


As catchy as a rewind in sound system, yet subtle like the smell of summer rain on hot asphalt, Swell No Swell’s 4 tracks has nothing in common with poseur gimmicks and cheesy aesthetics. Perfect junction between catchy technoïd rave sounds and embryotic dubstep, The Uncowl‘s prods are like ruthless wild beasts that hunt at night, and leave others running the sterile race towards flashes and fancy flowers that die just as quick as their fame. Real recognize real. (Fullfridgemusic, 2013) Grab this release for free here.
