Blastculture and Notch return with three new remixes of tracks taken from the Psychadelik Pedestrian LP Fifteen. Starting with atmospheric pads and bringing in tribal rhythms, Sergio's Last Remix of Sleep Tight launches into a rhythmic house workout, combining the hard edged distorted bass of the original with smooth dancefloor grooves. The Steady State Remix of Hit The Deck is a faster track with a darker feel, with hard house and techno influences. The remix repitches the original bassline and adds Blastculture's trademark bleepy effects. Notch concludes the release with a house remix of Sleep Tight, keeping the original melancholy keyboard riffs and adding smooth electronic beats, crisp rhythmic hi-hats and a subtle yet punchy organ riff. The remix kicks into the original's harder, gabber influenced middle section before closing with more house rhythms towards the end.
Notch captures that deep house vibe with two new original tracks on this Toucan Music release. Lose You features an infectious house riff with crisp house rhythms and deep sub-bass, interspersed with female vocal snippets. Spirals builds with a filtered old school piano riff and large throbbing bassline, before breaking into a mellow house groove with pads and a squiggly trance riff.
This release sees the return of Phish Funk with two new original tracks after a five year hiatus. Taking influence from the 1970s disco sound, Phish Funk blend groovy guitar riffs with uplifting strings while keeping their trademark house music vibe. Strum features a strong melodic groove with an infectious vocal loop drifting in and out of the track, and Dave Kent is on hand to add his own unique funky bassline. Hold Out features filtered funky guitars and soaring strings, more echoing vocal samples, bringing in an acid house riff to add a different element to the vibe.
Our January release features a double header of fresh Blastculture for the new year. Featuring his trademark tight grooves, Gravitation heats up the dancefloor with frenetic siren effects, and a thumping bassline. Based On A True Story is built around darker industrial techno grooves with tribal beats and a distorted buzzing riff with added sinister vocal echoes. Dave Kent and Notch provide a remix of Gravitation, adding acid house riffs to bring that bit of extra squelch, and stuttering up the vocal and siren samples for added effect.
Notch bursts onto the scene with this EP featuring two tracks combining deep house grooves with electro house synthwork and glitch. With a deep, rumbling bassline and warm, reverberating female vocal samples, Believe In Love gradually builds the energy, adding pounding stab patterns, bouncy arpeggio riffs and uplifting pads. On a slightly more experimental tip, Broken Record debuted on our Netlabel Day EP earlier this year and brings together tribal house grooves with dark bass wobbles, old skool rave pads and turntable effects.
Expertly timed to fit in with two of our autumn album releases, this EP features two club remixes of Psychadelik Pedestrian tracks. The original mix of Hypnotise was included on our Best Bytes 3 compilation and Phish Funk have joined forces with Aerologic to bring the track to the dancefloor. Combining the funky house sound of Phish Funk with the upfront progressive EDM vibe of Aerologic and the stuttering electro arpeggios of the original track, our new club mix of Hypnotise features funky bass guitar alongside electronic house grooves. Pulse is taken from the new Psychadelik Pedestrian album Fifteen, and here Notch pumps up the tempo and adds deep house rhythms while keeping faithful to the original electro track, using the punchy melody and synth riffs.
In this double track EP, Diamond Cuts recreate that old skool speed garage vibe. Beetlework combines the bass wobbles and skippy, hi-hat driven garage grooves with modern deep house influences, throwing in a catchy organ hit pattern and chord stabs. Touch stays faithful to the old skool garage sound with sizzling hi-hats, echoing vocal samples and reverberating organ hits. Download both tracks on this EP in high quality, unmixed DJ friendly format.
Blastculture takes on remix duty in this release to bring his own unique take on two recent Aerologic tracks. First up is Escapade, which Blastculture strips down to its bare elements, blending in intricate funky house rhythms and tribal textures, deep sub-bass and snippets from the original synth pattern. For his remix of Jangle, Blastculture teases us with the original jangly riff before kicking in the beats, stripping down the sound and launching into his own deeper, pumping groove. Both remixes are, in traditional Toucan style, available for free download under Creative Commons licence.
Two remixes of Phish Funk tracks feature in our August release, with Blastculture and Dave Kent on editing duties. Lava Lamp is tackled by Blastculture, who combines slick house beats with a laid back e-piano groove, pops and glitches before filtering in repeating piano chords, echoing vocal hits and trumpet stabs to create that late night dancefloor vibe. Dave Kent tweaks The Squelch, building up the original acid riff with distorted bass, 80s style synth chords, funky guitar hits and pumping house rhythms.
Our July release celebrates two significant events taking place this month. On July 14th 2015 the inaugural Netlabel Day will take place, and to mark the occasion we are releasing new mixes of one of our oldest and most well known tracks. The same day will see the New Horizons spacecraft reach its closest approach to the dwarf planet Pluto, giving us an opportunity not to be missed to revisit the 1997 Prism track Voyage To Pluto. Both remixes are courtesy of Psychadelik Pedestrian, bringing the original trancecore tempo down to a more respectable pace. The Netlabel Day mix combines dubstep bass growls with crisp, contemporary beats and a melodic, dreamy and uplifting synthesizer lead while retaining the recognisable electronic piano arpeggios. The New Horizons remix slows things down further and introduces bleepy, space age sounds and delay alongside a huge reverberating supersaw lead synth line. Of course, we couldn't miss the opportunity to include a remastered version of the original trancecore mix from 1997 and the popular Dreamworld UK hardcore remix originally released in 2005 which narrowly missed out on a place in our top 20 download chart of all time earlier this year.
