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”.

Guy J – March Lost in Miami Mix

I haven’t had time to check this mix out yet as it has only been alive for the past 7mins but I trust Guy has put out a lovely set full of exclusives as per usual. Hopefully we can get a tracklist up soon. Enjoy

EM: What’s your take on the internet’s role in music production and distribution? I thought it was cool how you released stems with your Loopmasters project.

Guy J: I think the internet is giving a lot but also takes a lot away. Many producers are being discovered thanks to the internet, but the market is loaded with music that is waste of time. I think before Internet became such a big player, people worked harder before releasing something.

Eelke Kleijn – Rampestamper (Guy J remix)

Eelke Keijn’s new track Rampestamper has been doing the rounds recently and I must admit I think the original mix is ok but nothing great. The Guy J remix however is brimming with quality but the soundcloud player below doesn’t do it much justice. It must be hard for labels and producers to put out samples of their work as they can’t always give the full picture. The various synth stabs and melodic layers haven’t come out too well on soundcloud and three minutes of a seven minute track that progresses really well from beginning to end you would think this track is pretty bland when it is not. It is definitely worth hearing a high quality full version so buy it and stick it on a decent set up.

Label
It’s time to welcome Rotterdam’s super-talented Eelke Kleijn to the Lost & Found family with a highly anticipated, exceptional debut release – “Rampestamper”. From the brooding, hypnotic intro onwards, this beauty flows smoothly into an ever blossoming, rising, euphoric journey. Restrained and subtle, yet intensely emotional and supremely accomplished, there can be no doubt that Eelke is a master of his craft, a true modern day composer.

The mix compilation of the summer for many people has undoubtedly been Guy J’s debut “Balance” (EQ) album, a truly uplifting and original listening experience that has gained critical praise of the highest order around world.

But, never one to rest on his laurels, Guy’s exceptional productions and remixes keep on coming. His recent “Seven”/”Milestone” (LF009) release has been a fixture at the top end of Beatport Techno Chart and his dynamic remix of “Rampestamper” is sure to follow suit. Guy J’s work is always touched with a magic that few can rival and this remix gradually turns up the pressure until, yet again, emotion is literally pouring out of the speakers.

Lost & Found is steadily building a catalogue of releases that are uniquely joyous, uplifting, intelligent and beautiful. Guy J and the artists he features alongside his own productions, are exploring the psyche of electronic dance music, asking questions and tasting possibilities, forging ahead into the future. This is a label that everyone should, most definitely, always keep on their music radar.

Navar – Le Paradigme

Nevar is no stranger to this blog, he has been churning out some quality pieces of music recently and it has earned him a release on Guy J’s “Lost & Found” label. The EP comes with a Hernan Cattaneo & Soundexile remix which is probably my pick (just). I really liked the depth of the track. I can imagine the original doing well in big room clubs though.

Guy J @FG Radio 18.12.12

guy j
The music has all gone a bit quiet on Soundcloud for the festive season but luckily I found a new set by Guy J that he posted an hour or so ago. Not listened to it fully but I am sure there’s a few people out there who are sick of George Michael and are ready to kick-start 2013 with a bit of progressive goodness.
