Premiere: Listen to Rhythm Cult’s Brilliant “Brutal” Forthcoming on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth

Label owners and experienced dance floor smashers, Rhythm Cult‘s Paul Loraine and Richard Seeley have always dedicated their studio uncountable hours to produce the finest and cutting-edge electronic music. But authentic artists, who have another thing in common: they are never satisfied, as if another level was always above them, awaiting to be conquered. Their latest outing, the brilliant Brutal EP on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth is a testament to their studio prowess.

Rhythm Cult is the name where you’ll find Loraine and Seeley’s way to get into this next level, a most clubbing and engaging electronic music is what they’ve been into, a path they’ve taken together for a simple reason: if you want people to really enjoy clubbing, be serious on having fun while producing the tracks they’ll dance to.

We are happy to be hosting the premiere of the title track from the forthcoming EP, which is out on October 6th and available for pre-order on Beatport.

Brutal (is Spanish for excellent or it’s cool) named after Paul’s favorite Italian tapas restaurant in Barcelona called Can Cisa – Bar Brutal) The track was a delve into experimental, leftfield type of house music. After an initial draft it was sent to Richard in the U.K. We generally work remotely in our own studios located in Barcelona ES and London UK. The Brutal (original) track has a dense bed of drums which Paul laid down along with some synth stabs and the grubby acid bass line, live percussion is what Richard recorded and arranged. With some back and forth between LDN and BCN it evolved into the completed EP with the added Dub mix and the excellent Peter Dundov remix. – Rhythm Cult

Q&A and Premiere: Leftback Boss Dudley Strangeways and David Gtronic Collaborate on “Diminution” EP

Amongst discerning house connoisseurs, Leftback Records has long been one of the UK’s worst-kept secrets.

Whether it be full-on house or minimal techno, Dudley Strangeways and Michael McLardy’s label continues to impress. Their latest outing is a case in point. Arriving on our plate from the dab hand that is Mr Strangeways himself, it sees the Nottingham producer produce alongside David Gtronic, and is a partnership that pays great dividends on the Dimunition EP.

A rollicking indication of what makes the label tick, it’s also a fascinating insight into the minds of two producers whose styles very much compliment one another. On the eve of the release, we checked in with Dudley for a quick chat.

Here’s what the man in question had to say when we threw a few questions his way recently in honor of the premiere of “Melee” from the forthcoming EP he was kind enough to have us host.

Premiere: Listen to “Exposure, Collapse” off of Scanner’s New LP “The Great Crater”

Over the last twenty give years Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner has traversed the experimental terrain between sound, space and image, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres – a partial list would include sound design, film scores, computer music, avant-garde, contemporary composition, large-scale multimedia performances, product design, architecture, fashion design, rock music and jazz. With a catalogue busy with commissions, soundtracks and studio releases it’s extremely rare to find a new studio recording, so The Great Crater stands out by measure of this.

Invited by the label Glacial Movements to create a new album he focused on the tale of strange circles appearing in Antarctica. Flying overhead in 2014 a group of scientists spotted a circular formation of 2km diameter. For a time it was thought that it could be the scar left by a crashing meteorite but in fact it was quite another story. Investigating the circle on foot in January 2016 scientists found a 3 meter deep depression, with vertical well-like shafts in the middle. Drilling into the ice they found multiple lakes beneath the surface, as part of a ‘hot spot’ or melting ice sheet. There is growing concern that it could lead to further disintegration. The album explores an immersive, fragile and moving exploration of themes inspired by this simple tale. At moments the ice moves and a sonic scar if formed, at others the chill wind blows across the exposed water.

The Great Crater offers up the voice of a unique composer in an ever unsettled global landscape.

Track Listing:

01 Cast to the bottom
02 Exposure, Collapse
03 Katabatic Wind
04 Forming Circuits
05 The Scar
06 Deep Water Channel
07 Lakes under Lakes
08 Underwater Lake
09 Strange Circles
10 Moving Forwards

Premiere: Listen to Select Cuts from Deep Tech Los Angeles Volume 1, Forthcoming on Krafted Underground

A metamorphism is taking place in downtown Los Angeles – from an underdeveloped urban landscape to a thriving metropolis with a flourishing electronic music scene.

Arising from this transformation is Deep Tech Los Angeles (DTLA) – a new collective of underground house producers from Los Angeles, all striving to build a grassroots movement of music and events.

Established by Redux Saints, the first U.S. graduate of the Toolroom Academy programme, the aim of the collective is to connect artists via a series of ‘listening sessions’ where producers could give feedback to each other. The project rapidly evolved into a compilation album of exclusive new and original material.

DTLA Volume 1 – released on Krafted Underground – showcases the deep, tech-y and progressive sounds that DTLA stands for, featuring tracks from LA scene stalwarts JJ Flores, Mr. Bootsauce, Lok N Key, Redux Saints, Shanto, Contessa, Andy Slate, P-LASK alongside newcomers 28mm and Thomas Garcia.

Today, we are premiering four cuts from the 12-tracker, which you can enjoy via the SoundCloud player below:

Playlist: FooR’s New, Current and Future Garage Sounds

FooR is a four-piece collective of producers, musicians and DJs at the forefront (or FooR-front as they call it) of the current UK Garage revival. This Southampton-based act has been championing the garage sound for a new generation and is considered one of the fastest rising UK Garage groups at the moment.

FooR has recently been given the honour of mixing the latest Pure Garage album – the original, and best-selling Garage compilation series of all-time originally mixed by EZ. The album was a huge success reaching number 9 in the official UK compilation chart & number 2 in the dance chart. On the live front, FooR is one of the favorite party-starting festival acts and have played some of the biggest stages in the world over the last few years, including EDC, Isle of Wight Festival, Boardmasters and Mutiny. Earlier this year FooR performed their biggest show to date, playing the Big Top at Isle Of Wight festival on Saturday to 12,000 people in between the headliners Example & Zara Larsson.

The group’s latest endeavor is a mix of Sam Supplier’s original Night & Day mix. Released by Champion Records on October 20th, the remix package aims to take the summer hit back to the clubs as a staple track. Throwing everything they’ve got into this UKG mix, FooR manages to take the original and somehow make it even catchier. A two-step garage beat with added chunky synth melody, combined with the Night & Day vocals takes this mix to the next level.

With FooR’s latest celebrated release, the group has shared some of their favorite tracks that they or other artists have recorded through this special playlist.
