Jad & The continues to deep-sea dive into drum exploration on his next expedition the “Pacific Drums” EP. An ode to his oceanside upbringing next to the Pacific Ocean and his love of all types of electronic music and drum patterns. Wavy music inspired by the ocean but designed for the dance floor. Enter the water people, but don’t forget the sun cream.
It’s always a delight when top-notch music hits our inbox. It tells us we must be doing something right! Cosmonection’s latest offering is one of those releases, infectious from the first listen and perfect for the dance floor.
Cosmonection’s Venezia EP delivers two hard-hitting originals, along with a remix courtesy of London duo, Wayward. Venezia leads the way with lush pads, 303 and glistening horns. Radiant dives a little deeper and Wayward concludes the EP with a mighty broken beat inspired remix.
Dom Bird is a musician, producer and DJ from Brisbane, Australia. Known as part of indie-disco band, Mitzi, and one half of house duo, Chord Memory Band, Bird also co-founded the radio show and label, Beats Of No Nation.
Yemayá, Bird’s first solo EP is undeniably intimate. Written and recorded over one studio session, Yemayá draws inspiration from Afro and Latin culture, blending sounds derived from a synthesizer, guitar and drum machine with samples taken from a recording session with percussionist, Gus Cereijo.
We feel like our label is best known for upbeat, and left-field dance renditions – but it’s exciting to keep people guessing. And on that note, we’re psyched to announce our new signee: Maïa!
Maïa’s music is entirely self-produced, which is likely what makes her sound vividly warm and intimate. She draws influence from current bands like The Internet and Potatohead People, along with love for acid jazz, afrobeat, South African house, and soul – to name a few.
Maïa’s “Motion” EP is another milestone our label, as we continue to amplify the diverse and vibrant sounds coming out of Brisbane, Australia.
Our first release of 2019 comes from Charles Murdoch, a very talented and enigmatic producer from our hometown of Brisbane. Charlie is a former bandmate of ours, one half of Super Fun Bumper Edition (our very first release), and more recently working behind the scenes mixing Maia’s EP – it’s safe to say he is part of the family.
The thing we love most about Charles Murdoch is that although his sound has evolved over the years, he has always stayed true to his modus operandi: ethereal, yet subtle electronica. Recently, Charlie has continued to expand his sonic palette by experimenting with a modular rack synth, which has clearly influenced his latest EP. As a result, “WTBL” signals a shift away from his familiar beat driven melodies, to engender raw, modulated techno made for early morning raving.
BONN co-founder, Jad & The continues to refine his signature playful house sound on the “Bernauer Strasse Shuffle” EP. Get ready for euro summer, its time to shuffle, Bernauer Strasse style.
London producer-duo, Wayward, are back after blowing us away with their marvelous “Good Afternoon Mr Magpie” EP. Wayward have a knack for bridging the gap between the dancefloor and the more soulful side of electronic music, with support across the radio airwaves from the likes of Giles Peterson on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, KCRW, Beats In Space and Rinse FM.
The EP opener “Green Lanes” (co-written with London producer Books) is a dance floor ready tune with a hypnotic bassline and the perfect amount of cowbell. “Maxi Love” brings the disco heat with an edit of a timeless classic, reinterpreted for late-night escapades. On the B side, “Time and Again” is a breezy house banger and the closing track “Silver” is reminiscent of Wayward’s signature sound, blending samples in seamlessly with warm percussive elements.
