Guy J – Candyland / Once in a Blue Moon / Lonely Color

One of my favourite EP’s at the moment. Guy J never seems to dip in form no matter what kind of music he produces, all three tracks in the EP are top quality. Hard to pick a favourite track in this one.

Release 20th October 2014

Guy J returns to Bedrock with what is probably one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year. Having been an outstanding highlight in his sets for many months, and been the subject to endless discussion across social media, “Candyland” is set to take things to another level.

For many people around the world, Guy J’s music is uniquely joyous, uplifting, intelligent and beautiful, and there can be no doubt that he is one of the standout electronic artists today. His work is always touched with a magic and emotion that few rival, and “Candyland” is a perfect example of why his productions are quite simply – so special. Its restrained, euphoric, sensual beauty flows effortlessly into an ever-blossoming journey as it weaves its slow-build seductive spell – this is a tune that will surely become a future timeless classic?

But that’s not all, Bedrock has sandwiched “Candyland” between two further treats from Guy J – a recent live favourite, the supreme, smile inducing “Once In A Blue Moon”; along with “Lonely Color” and its deeply delicious throbbing core, laced with enticing, subtle melodic flourishes. Significantly, each track shows Guy J has the ability to turn up the pressure until emotion is literally pouring out of the speakers. He is an artist that everyone should, most definitely, always keep on their music radar.

Transitions 506 by John Digweed

Some really good tracks in John Digweed’s latest transitions. I particularly like Dixon’s remix of “Before The Sunrise”. I think John’s held back the release date due to it being on his latest compilation “Live in Miami”.

01. Nolan feat. Idris Elba – Children Of House (Of Norway Version) [Connaisseur Recordings | cns066-6]

08. Coyu & Ramiro Lopez – That’s Not Happening [Bedrock Records | Beddigi-48]

Jemmy – Waterloo Blues

I was torn between posting the original mix or the Yousef circus rework. In the end I had to post both. The original is just a perfect summers day track the kind of track you would expect to hear on a terrace in Ibiza when the sun is going down. While the Yousef rework would sound more at home in a club with punchy beats and more emphasised melody. A great EP from Bedrock.

Edu Imbernon & Triumph – Veranoski (Henry Saiz Remix)

Edu Imbernon recently put his remix skills towards one of Henry Saiz’s new tracks and now it’s Henry’s turn to repay the favour for Imbernon and Triumphs new track “Veranoski”. The original is pretty outstanding but Saiz’s signature sound is something I always enjoy hearing. All in all two great tracks and a remix by these guys who consistently produce great quality music. Signed to Bedrock.

Label spiel
“This is the only way that people will remember your music, trying to make them feel something special and making them dance.” – Edu Imbernon
Having remixed Jozif’s “Twilight” for John Digweed’s “Live In London” opus and played at the Bedrock anniversary party where the live recording was made, Spain’s Edu Imbernon has already demonstrated a brilliant ear for pulsating house music. Now, he returns, having teamed up with fellow Spaniard Triumph, with “Veranoski” – another haunting masterclass in dancefloor dynamics.
Edu Imbernon is a great example of how a young artist can quickly make their mark on the electronic scene, his worldwide hit – “El Baile Alemán” (produced with his friend Coyu), was lauded as “Best Underground Track of the Year” by Beatport in 2009. Since then, he has continued his steady ascent up the ladder towards house music stardom, with quality remixes for the likes of The XX and Maya Jane Coles, amongst others. His productions have featured on notable labels like Get Physical, Noir Music, Trapez, Great Stuff, Diynamic, alongside his own Eklektisch label. He’s also resident for Kehakuma at Space, Ibiza.
The superb remix of “Veranoski” comes from another of Spain’s finest – Henry Saiz – whose outings on Bedrock are always exceptional. Henry’s critically acclaimed “Balance 019” album, released in 2011, was the catalyst for his star potential explode around the globe. His superb collaboration with Guy J (“Meridian”) and his solo track (“La Marea”) for the landmark Bedrock 100 release, were of the highest level of quality and his “Cryptozoologist EP” (BEDDIGI27) was one of 2012’s highlights. Here, his remix of “Veranoski” once again proves Henry Saiz is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinarily talented young producers around.

Jemmy – Quarry Bank Rainbow (Stelios Vassiloudis) – Bedrock Records

Artwork

Stelios Vassiloudis puts his skills towards Cream resident Jemmy’s track “Quarry Bank” to create a melodic flowing masterpiece. Check out what Jemmy had to say about the track below…

Quarry bank rainbow was your new record released in the summer. Was it the product of a long working process or did you record and release it fairly swiftly?

It’s just being promo’d at the moment and is coming out on John Digweeds Bedrock Label on the 8th of October. It took a long time to make to be honest, but it happened really naturally and wasn’t too stressful. Some tracks can take up a lot of energy but this was an absolute pleasure, from recording the melodies, vocals and trumpets to programming the drums…everything just slotted into place.

Are you happy with how it’s gone down amongst your followers?

Yeah, it’s been going down really well in my sets. I played it at the Leftfield, a friends gig in Brixton Academy and it got the biggest reaction out of everything I played.

Jemmy was interviewed back in September by ACE Read the full interview.
