Viers // 0002 / Your Body

9 Jul

viers church

Following on from Rumah’s largely acclaimed Stutter/Murmur EP, which received support from the likes of Skream, Dusky, Sei A & More. South London Party starters Church are back with another offering from new blood Viers. The A Side reflects Viers deep and atmospheric approach to his productions, with subtle elements and a weighty sub pulsating throughout the track, it’s the perfect tool to hype up an audience. The catchy hook and hefty 4/4 beat of the flip side Your Body is also sure to receive a lot of attention from all the right sources landing somewhere in between House & Techno territory. Apes & Seb Wildblood’s mix of 0002 offers a more nostalgic take on the track with a heavy focus towards the dance floor, yet managing to retain a strong sense of atmosphere throughout . Squarehead offers up a lighter hearted cut of Your Body, his House & Garage influence track is carried by a stomping baseline and ravey synth lines. The Release furthermore cements Church’s reputation as an imprint and goes some way into moulding something of a signature sound. (Church BP, 2013) Beatport here.

GoldFFinch // The Volume EP

8 Jul

goldffinch volume ep

GoldFFinch are back….back on Saigon Recordings…..back to the dancefloor. POW! 4 new tracks on an EP entitled ‘The Volume’, guess what the first track is called… yes, we don’t do clever EP names. The lead track is smashing up the airwaves/dancefloors, we do sincerely hope that no injuries have occurred due to any aggro-dance moves (we’re not liable). Support across the board from the likes of Paleman, Loefah, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B – this supreme Belgian duo are going from strength to strength, fresh from their appearance on the US based Dirtybird label. GoldFFinch/Saigon fully endorse the use of Peacock related imagery. (Surus, 2013) Buy it here. Beatport here.

Artifact Drafty

Here’s some fresh Artifact stuff, words from the dude himself: Drafty EP – It’s been a little while since I released any music, and whilst i’ve been busy working on my next few releases, I wanted to take this opportunity to release some music i’ve been making over the past year. This is an EP of several new tracks, as well as several that never really got placed anywhere. (Artifact SC, 2013)

30 Apr

Steel-City youngblood Walter Ego turns in a blinding 3 tracker for his second release on Girls Music. A trio of heaters to keep you and yours warm through the end of this never- ending British winter. Listen and imagine sunnier times, cruising in your car with the window down or dancing in the street with your flies down. The vibes are strong and distinctly British. Music for dancing with soul and adventure. Nice one, Walter. (Girls Music, 2013) Beatport here.

South London Ordnance // Revolver

31 Mar

South London Ordnance - Revolver

2012 was without doubt the breakthrough year for South London Ordnance. In the space of twelve months the 23 year old artist put out three separate 12”s alongside a five track EP, which garnered support from Jamie XX, Scuba, Benji B, Mary Ann Hobbes, Mosca, Claude Vonstroke, Richie Hawtin and more. His jungle-advised, finely honed productions also rightly earned him notable mention in several annual end of year roundups including DJ Mag’s Best of British 2012, XLR8R’s 4th Best New Act of 2012 (alongside Disclosure and Karenn), and Time Out UK’s DJs to Watch in 2013. With this debut outing on Hotflush Recordings scheduled for March, 2013 is set to be yet another strong year for the young producer. (Hotflush SC, 2013)

Severn Beach // Stitches EP

13 Mar

Drukwerk

For the next release on Audio Culture we’re happy to present Severn Beach, a new moniker for the already well established Bristolian, James Fox. On the Stitches EP Severn Beach displays an impressive level of constraint and confidence while exploring the more stripped back yet detailed, rugged and tougher territories of house and techno.

Dark Sky // Myriam EP

25 Nov

Although London bass trio Dark Sky‘s discography is still relatively short, they have proven adept with a varied sonic palette, one that includes serene melodies, cut-up R&B snippets, thundering organic drums, and thick bass sounds underpinning the entire operation. Their “Radius EP” released in Summer 2011 became one of the best sold and most sought after singles from the continuously growing 50 Weapons catalog.A year later it’s time for a strong follow up! The excellent “Myriam EP” is certainly living up to the high expectations. Garage rhythms, Clonkstep, Post-UK Funky, techy House references and even nods to Electro all united  in 4 smashing club tunes are a blazing example for the ongoing Bass evolution. (Modeselektor SC, 2012)
