Graphics - Mama Grizzlies

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Jan 23, 2012

First of all, happy new year! We all hope that 2012 has started with a bang for all our friends and fans.

We're certainly excited about our first release of the year - ‘Mamma Grizzlies’ is the debut single on Made To Play by the up'n'coming Graphics - if you haven't heard of him thus far, you certainly will do in 2012.

The title track is undoubtedly a beast, a mournful opening lyric is soon over taken by heavy rhythms and darker vocals. It’s a massive party track but underpinned by an emo sensibility. The second original entitled ‘Colour Her Hair, is all driving tribal drums and a repetitive almost dismissive vocal, that whilst perhaps at odds with the persistent rhythm, underpins it with some much needed emotive resonance.

 
The first of three remixes comes from Roska who almost entirely dispenses with any of the sombreness of the original unloading a UK funky laden call to arms. The second remix comes from MTP stalwarts Prince Club who pull the blinds on Roska’s sunshine and climb into Mamma Grizzlie’s winter hibernation den. The final remix comes from Switzerland’s David Keno who manipulates ‘Mamma Grizzlies’ fusing his trademark melodic sound with the jump up rhythms of the original to transform the track into a minimalist, almost ‘90s house flavoured jam.

 

Switch -  Da Cut! xx   5/5

Diplo - Space Man!  4/5

Nick Catchdubs - Just in time for the presidential race! great stuff and ace remix package, loving roska roska roska in particular.  4/5

Ali (Tiefschwarz) - Great reease. I love the 2 original mixes the most  5/5

Catz 'n' Dogz - Fantastic release !! Colour Her Hair is a great track!  4/5

Christian Martin - The whole EP is dope! Love the deepness of Color Her Hair.  4/5

Love Strong EP

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Dec 05, 2011

The wait is over with the newest release from the Canadian duo 'Prince Club'  out today. The 'Love Strong' track is something of an ode to the sound of '90's house music with its sunken basslines, skipping hi-hats and eq'd loved up vocals whilst 'Venice Groove' is much more forward thinking, a looped and slowed down affair. With this newest release 2012 is set to be another big year for the Montreal pair. The release is available now on Beatport.

Mark Farina – Nineties for sure in a good way!

Nick Catchdubs - Venice Groove lives up to its name!

Chris (Round Table knights) – I love the ‘love Strong’ song so strong

Nat Self – Boom

Steve Aoki - Support!

Timo Garcia - Nice old skool vibe on this one.

 

 

Made For The Night

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Nov 28, 2011

Here's something to ease those monday blues - 'Made for the Night', Jesse Rose's first compilation since his Body Language mix on Get Physical back in 2007, is out today.

The concept behind Made For The Night is to provide insight to the listener to both sides of an artist; what they play in the club (CD1 Mixed For The Night) and what they produce outside of the club (CD2 Produced For The Night).

Accompanying the release is the Made For The Night documentary (directed by Tyler & Jack) which allows us to take a look into the hectic life that Jesse leads as a DJ, producer and A'nR of his labels, Made To Play, PIay It Down and Front Room Recordings.

Enjoy people!

Made For The Night is out now on Beatport and itunes.

For those who want to view the video via vimeo, please click here.

 

With special thanks to Jules Audry of Tyler & Jack and to Palmer + Pawel.
